Keep doing things that put you out of your comfort zone, until you feel comfortable.
Then find some new things to do that make you uncomfortable.
This is mental cross-training at its best.
Do you want to be comfortable, or do you want to be great?
Keep pushing yourself and you will find yourself in a whole new world.
Today’s message is especially dedicated to the great Diane Stevenson in the UK.
Life begins at the end of your comfort zone. -NEALE DONALD WALSCH
Admit it, you like to be comfortable. But if you’re comfortable, you’re not growing.
When I give mental toughness coaching sessions, I have people perform mental cross-training. For example, I had a college tennis player sing happy birthday to me at the top of his voice, in a crowded restaurant. He didn’t feel like it but did it anyway and felt great afterwards. And I do it in my own life, as well. Six hours after I solved my first Sudoku puzzle, I competed in the National Sudoku Championships (Beginner level).
The more you put yourself in uncomfortable situations, the more comfortable you will be when they arise.
Sports are mostly mental, but when was the last time you worked on that aspect of your game?
Homework: For the next week, do one thing each day that puts you out of your comfort zone.
