When the Olympics take place, we all witness the highest level of mental discipline amongst the athletes competing… And it’s amazing to see their perseverance to win… and only three win in any competition from all around the world.
Simone Biles is the most decorated gymnast of all time and she had a protective fear to lead her into the next step in her life, not for anyone else, but for her self.
As a fan, you can see she made the right decision. When you look at the slow motion film clips of her performance, you can see the stress in her body and facial expression while looking for where to land… the fear made her extra cautious and with good reason because she knows her time as a competitor in gymnastics is over.
But, she was brave enough to withdraw and instead support her team. Fortunately, her fear of injury made her brave enough to be more value to her team as a leader cheering them on. She’s adjusted to her needs. And can’t wait to see what she does with her talents in the future. Her mental discipline can be integrated into anything she does.
Here’s some ways you can deal with fear…
1. If you fear something, instead of ignoring it because you want to be strong, be stronger in your awareness of what that fear is telling you.
2. When you figure out what the fear is taking you, Is it time to change or maintain what your doing based on what you became aware of?
3. Do what you need to do based on 1 & 2.
Think of how brave you would have to be to withdraw in front of the world in the most prestigious competition of all time.
You may be living life with few people looking at you while you work, the way you spend your time and everything else you do. But, you are always there no matter what. Lol and it’s taking care of your self while being productive that matters the most and that form of productivity changes based on your priorities and needs.
It doesn’t matter what other people think, this is your life and it is in your best interest to maintain your health and well being above all.
With sincere interest in building your best,
