095: Staying on Track in Those Big Moments

Navigating High-Pressure Situations

Competition pressure can have a huge impact on your ability to perform in those big moments. 

Learning how to perform and what to trust can make all the difference. In episode 95 of Brain in the Game, we look at how to push through the uncomfortable to perform when it counts. We talk about:

  • Think of your performance as a railway track. The better you lay your tracks (skills and preparation), the better you can perform when the pressure's on.
  • Emotions can cloud your process, much like snow covering train tracks. The tracks are still there, you just need to push through the discomfort and trust your training.
  • Understand how internal and external pressures can affect your performance, and ensure they don't derail your progress.
  • Survivalist vs. Strategist Mindset: Are you testing before you trust or trusting before you test? A strategist mindset focuses on control, metrics, and assessing rather than testing.
  • Assess and Enjoy: Collect data, recognise, and reward yourself along the way. This helps you maintain momentum and stay in control.

Remember, don't let panic derail your performance – trust your process and you will learn to stay on track. If you want to perform on the world stage, keep your tracks strong and straight, then you're ready to accelerate!
