Sports psychology is really interesting. I’m told elite athletes like Derek Jeter can go a whole game and not have a single negative thought enter their head. In other words, he doesn’t doubt for a second that he can hit the ball no matter who the pitcher is and what the environment is like.
I’m a big believer in the power of positive thinking. One thing I noticed recently is that when I’m on the treadmill I almost never have a negative thought. Staring at myself in the mirror, with great music going on in my ears, and the endorphins flowing throughout my body, I feel like I can do and be anything.
For me, it’s the treadmill. Do you have an activity or place where you can go and be immersed in positive feeling?
