I don’t know if it is the time of year or what, but a lot of my clients have found themselves falling off track with their process lately.
The stress of the holiday season is acting like the straw that broke the camel’s back and many of my clients are having a hard time getting back in the saddle and back on track towards achieving their really important long-term performance outcomes.
As a former professional athlete, I can tell you that the best indicator of an athlete’s fitness and strength is how quickly they recover.
Well, it is no different for any mental athlete (high-performance thinker)-their mental strength is measured by how quickly they recover.
The expectation should not be that you will never fall down or fall off track with achieving your goals. Life happens my high-performance friend, and you most certainly will get knocked down. Expect it. Prepare for it.
The question to ask yourself is how quickly will you get back up?
In this week’s ‘MoMonday Video: Reduce Your Recovery Time (click here to watch),’ we explore the topic of mental recovery.
Take a few minutes to watch this week’s video and discover the ins and outs of mental recovery. Ask yourself:
-when was the last time I fell off track with my goals?
-what was the result?
-how did I feel?
-what did I do about it?
-how long did it take me to get back up?
-what did I do to get back on track?
Your mental training should target in on this high-performance topic this week. Audit your recovery time. Notice your autopilot conditioned response. Then get strategic in planning how to strengthen your response time, thus reducing it.
Until next time, make every performance count!
