What do top athletes think about before they train, before they compete?
We can’t help but imagine what it’s like. In every backyard ball court around the world, there’s a kid daydreaming about hitting the game-winning shot. Under pressure, with everything on the line.
As adults we are no different. We are fascinated by competition highlights and athletes that overcome circumstance to perform at their best. Even in the gym, as we anxiously prepare for tough WOD’s and heavy lifts, we tend to emulate and take our clues from the strongest people in the room.
But there is a secret to top performance. Something observable, something you can discover for yourself with enough time, repetition and shots taken. And it’s also the answer to our question.
What do the best athletes in the world think about in that moment, when everything they’ve worked for really is on the line?… In truth, nothing much at all. That’s a powerful skill that you can learn.
I hope you enjoy this show. Please, watch and share this episode with a friend who could use some mind #GAINZ. Everything you need to perform at your best – and I do mean everything – is already sitting right between your ears.
Train hard, be focused,
