Episode 030: Power Poses and Positive Energy


Episode 030: Power Poses and Positive Energy


I have spent a lot of time in my career working with athletes, coaches, and parents on mental preparation, mental skillsets, and performance enhancement. I even got my Masters in Sports Psychology. After all of this, I fully understand the importance of positive thinking to athletic performance.


When it comes down to it, sports psychology is optimizing your mental capacity to deal with the pressures of competition. It is the key to countering one of the biggest barriers my clients encounter: negative self-talk. 


How many times have you beaten yourself up over mistakes, lack of preparation, or an inability to move past a mistake in a competitive situation? In this episode, I want to get into some of the strategies of sports psychology I have learned over the years that can help with this.


I am not one to say, “Just think positive and life will be wonderful.” However, there are certain behavioral patterns you can implement to move yourself come out of a negative spiral. Tune in to learn what they are.
