#111 — “Learn to control the private voice. The toughness of an athlete resides in the content and tone of that private voice.” Charlie Mahr, sports psychologist for the Cleveland Indians, Cleveland Cavaliers and New England Patriots.

 “If the private voice starts ripping on the players or getting defensive, attacking, negative or pessimistic, trouble is not far behind,” Loehr said.”  To condition the private voice to tell a positive story, he suggests that the player literally write down the words to use when doubts about their abilities come in and during high pressure times.

 

I find that by keeping the sentence short and rhyming, I am more likely to remember it when I’m feeling stressed.

Yay. The birds are back and bits of green are popping up here and there.

When I was young, I made a lot of bad choices. The only way I knew to dig myself and my family out was to go to the library, always hoping that the next book I read would change my life and thankfully, often many of them did. Out of gratitude for the happy life I have now, I decided to share what I have learned, and continue to learn. I hope that Tuesday Tips helps you as much as they have helped and continue to help me.
