This is a short clip of her in a session with one of the Asset Managers who is having a complete lapse of Mental Toughness. It’s 85 seconds long. Have a look.
This guy’s fear is arising solely from his inner dialog. That is always true for all of us. Note that. ALL of our fear arises from low-grade inner dialog. Period. And the great news about that is that we have the ability to COMPLETELY govern our inner dialog.
One of my favorite mantras is:
“I use history, but don’t permit history to use me.”
This dude is letting history use him here. “I’m down 4%. I’m fucked.” Is it true that he’s down 4% when his colleagues are up double digits? Yes, it is. That’s a fact. Now the question is, what do you want to DO with that data? How do you want to USE that bit of recent history in order to inspire you to show up?!
That’s the coaching she gives him. In 90 seconds. (Another reason why I LOVE coaching. It can create profound results FAST!) That’s all the time it takes for her to re-MIND this guy to change inner channels and to make the badass voice the louder one and to listen to THAT one.
That’s the practice! When you’re feeling afraid, change the voice that you’re listening to to that of your BADASS SELF, turn that up to full volume and proceed!
