There are three options we have for dealing with our thoughts. We can ignore them, challenge them, or delve into them. Learning when to choose each of these approaches is a key component of building helpful self-talk. That can be a game changer for young athletes and others who have to spend a lot of time making decisions and judgment calls in their own heads, which is why learning to do it in a productive way is critical.

This week, Amanda Myrhrberg talks about the importance of useful thought processes and why we should focus on expanding our comfort zone, rather than breaking out of it. She’s the owner of A Game Sport Psychology Consulting, where she uses mental performance training to help young athletes and others “bring their A game.” Her goal is to build confident, comfortable, and thoughtful athletes who know how to face challenges head on and learn to overcome them.

It’s important to find a sense of balance or stability, even at the most unstable points in our lives. This week, RP founder Nick Shaw talks about using free time to work on larger projects and being sure to save time for relaxation and mental recharging to avoid burnout. It isn’t always possible to align your time exactly the way you want to, but by focusing on the things that are in your control, you can start to make better decisions about how to use the hours you have.

There’s always something a little more you could be doing to further your progress toward your goals, Shaw says. Whether it’s doing a few extra reps, rethinking your daily schedule, or reworking your time management, it’s important to look at the options you have and find out what works best for you mentally and physically. If you burn the candle too far at both ends, you can wind up with more work and fewer met goals. But if you get complacent and adopt a victim mentality, you can find yourself lagging behind. Once you find discipline and a work setup that are right for you, you’ll be set to tackle the milestones you set.

Worry and fear are feelings & thoughts based on a future where things don't go our way. We get caught in a trap when we don't practice mindfulness & being in the present.

Don't let worrying about what may not even happen be what keeps you from working toward becoming a winner.

Oftentimes, people look forward, wondering what opportunities might be just over the horizon, rather than seeking out connections and partnerships they have access to right now. It’s OK to take a leap into the unknown, but don’t forget to find ways of helping out those around you, too. There may be surprising opportunities that stem from those conversations, says this week’s guest, podcaster and coach Ben Newman.

As soon as you finish listening to today’s show, Newman has a challenge for you. Based on your experience and relationships, what are the five phone calls you could make right now that have the potential to connect you to the future you desire? Write down the people’s names and phone numbers. When you get in touch, find out what you can do to help them — what value you can add to their mission. It’s a simple way of putting in the work today to reach your goals tomorrow.
