NEVER UNDERESTIMATE A GOOD PEP TALK
I love watching HOMETOWN HOOPS and seeing the athletes go hard at the LIFETIME ATHLETIC gym. Recently the video I watched featured Ben Simmons getting a run in and during the vid Rico Hines gave a quick pep talk encouraging the guys to give it all they got and make sure they get a great session in. Boy was that pep talk effective. Guys was flying all over the place making every play count like it was the NBA FINALS . That’s when it hit me , you can never underestimate a good pep talk.
In the process of improving it easy to become your own worst critic rendering you the possibility of being stuck in your head. Sometimes you just need verbal affirmations from another source that sends you to the direction of a more focused performance. That focused performance can be anything not just athlete related.
A senior partner can give a rising associate the push he needs, The Math teacher can give the student the much needed push to succeed on an exam, and so on and so forth. We should never underestimate the good things we can say about each other because we need each other and if those positive things can be harnessed into action than that is when boundaries are pushed and CHANGE IS MADE!
