SELF-TALK: Achieve Subconscious Confidence in Sport

How to train confidence into the subconscious mind and perform better

Does it matter what you think?

Yes of course – very much so! One of the reasons is that the way in which we talk to ourselves influences our emotions, and our emotions shape our behaviors. Our behaviors in turn influence what happens next in our lives and in our sport.

In this course on Self-talk I teach you how you can influence your thinking and train confidence into the subconscious mind and practice better, perform better and be better!

Here is what we cover:

  • Why self-talk matters?
  • Types of self-talk and discover how to become aware of them.
  • How to influence how we think.
  • The relationship between the conscious and subconscious mind (which is incredibly important!)
  • Thought-Stopping.
  • Accurate and Inaccurate Thinking.
  • I’ve included exercises along the way as well as a self-assessment questionnaire.
  • We’ll end with some final techniques and an action plan to build your daily self-talk toolbox.
