Emotions certainly feature in our competition/training journeys.
Usually the memorable times are at the either end of each extreme.
Emotions are so vital as they give us ques to take action on.
These emotions are almost like the dashboard on a car which signal there is something out of sync under the hood.
This allows us to take action in time before things get out of hand.
It’s the same principle with emotions, whether its nerves, fear, butterflies or whatever, these are all responses to drawing out attention to something that’s going on.
So what does that mean for us?
Well the key is the awareness of the problem under the hood.
Once we can identify this, we can then use various techniques to bring them back under control.
Emotional control is the key, we don’t necessarily need to get rid of a particular emotion but control it enough so it doesn’t cloud of judgement, thoughts and subsequently our actions which may result in a unfavourable performance/outcome.
We need to have systems in place as a go to when emotions cloud of rational thinking, a blueprint we can follow.
Everyone has an answer but it’s not easy to give yourself the correct advice.
This is due to emotions a lot of the time. This process is all part of building a mental toolkit for performance.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
