Establish Your Own Peak Performance
Developing a positive mindset is a constant practice.
In sports, you must continually condition your body to move in a certain way for peak performance.
So is the continual conditioning of the mind.
Here are a few ways to help you develop a positive mindset:
- Edit your self-talk. Treat yourself with compassion. Acknowledge your fears and losses. Encourage yourself to keep striving.
- Cultivate gratitude. Remembering our blessings reminds us of our connection to each other and the divine. The world instantly looks a lot friendlier, and that’s reassuring.
- Let go of expectations. Of course, many outcomes in life are beyond our control. Base your confidence on your ability to adapt to setbacks and changing circumstances. Accept uncertainty, and take pleasure in the opportunity to learn and stretch your skills.
- Laugh it off. Most of the things that make us uneasy have their funny side. Look for the humor in really bad parking or kitchen remodeling jobs that go way over schedule.
As you might imagine, positive thinking offers compounding returns, so the more often you practice it, the greater benefits you’ll realize.
