BITG 003: Building Confidence and Overcoming Fear

November 23, 2012

In this episode we seek to understand our emotional monsters.

The majority of athletes would list confidence and fear as the biggest obstacles they come across in their mental game.

Interestingly enough, both confidence and fear are influenced by the same thing: our own imagination.

We explore:

  • the most common way we create doubt and how to avoid it through positive feeding of the emotional monster
  • the evolution of the imagination and its impact on our referencing so we understand how we create fear in our bodies
  • unpacking the mechanics and roots of our fears
  • what fear really is and how to use it to our advantage in our training and our competition environment
  • how to manage your confidence levels, at any time in order to manage your level of control
  • the two initiation points to our fear mechanism and how we manage these
  • mental debrief exercise to work through competition nerves
