3 Simple Tips to Nailing It!
“You’ve got to be 100% there. If you’re only slightly not there on a big mountain, it can cause you to fail or get in trouble” –Ed Viesters: No Shortcuts To The Top
Now, think about being an athlete. When you are in the game, it’s very important to be focused, pay attention to what is happening right in front of you and play in the present moment. It’s all about nailing it. You have to let go of any distractions around you, or in your head, that could prevent you from simply doing your job in that exact moment. And, just like trying to hammer a nail, if you’re not paying attention, you could end up hurting yourself or your team.
It’s not about what happened yesterday or could happen tomorrow. It’s not about good or bad. It’s not about win or lose. It’s not about the other team or the spectators watching the game. It’s only about you and, in that moment, what you can and will do to make the greatest impact.
You want to make decisions based upon what you see taking place instead of making decisions that are triggered by any negative emotions.
You want to make decisions based upon your goals instead of making decisions that are triggered by what you don’t want to happen or afraid could happen.
You want to make decisions based upon using your personal strengths instead of making decisions that are triggered by thoughts or worries about your weaknesses or limitations in the game.
