The Athlete Mind

Welcome to the Find Your Fierce Podcast, where you will discover your fierce, unlock an unstoppable mindset, build unbreakable courage, and ultimately transform how you show up daily. I’m your host, Jill Allen, and I’m so glad you’re joining me today.

In this episode, we’ll discuss sports-confidence and mindset hacks to help athletes reach their peak performance. We’ll explore some common confidence mistakes athletes make and how to avoid them.

I’ll also share what top athletes do to train their brains as successfully as they train their bodies. Our mindset and thought process are crucial to our performance and confidence, and today we’re on a mission to improve our thinking.

So join me as we dive into the athlete mind and learn how to tap into our most confident, athletic selves.

We will talk about:

(3:25) The most common mistakes that plague athletes and how these mistakes rob them of their full potential.

(5:18) What happens when an athlete struggles with self-doubt and how to breakthrough with confidence.

(11:14) Why performance pressure is a hoax (and why the pressure increases affecting the athlete’s confidence).

(15:33) How belief in one’s potential and the power of positive talk impacts an athlete’s performance and mindset.

(21:08) The most common confidence mistakes that athletes make (and how these mistakes lead to self-sabotage and mistrust).

(23:30) Critical daily habits that high performers do to warm up their brain and elevate their confidence.

Key Takeaway:

The athletes that achieve the most are the ones who are willing to fail the most.
