Read on for our exercise recommendations to maintain your readiness level.
Cultivate the habit of positive talk.
How we interpret situations and experiences is largely the result of our inner dialogue, the product of our conscious thoughts and unconscious beliefs and biases. Cultivating healthy, positive self-talk can dramatically determine our success or conversely, failure. It can affect our attitude, emotions, build or destroy our confidence, our ability to overcome challenges and hardship. Some people linked the habit of positive self-talk to a ladder to take you higher. Make positive self-talk a habit today.
Nothing good comes about by accident and success takes time to cultivate. Make a decision today and begin taking steps toward building resilience. Utilize the peak state mastery journal to plan routines and carry out resilience-building practices such as visualization, meditation, anchoring.
Visualization (or mental imagery) is an active, action-based form of meditation that confers a broad spectrum of benefits. Visualization involves the deliberate use of words or self-talk and pictures in our mind to image a specific mental, emotional, physical state and/or outcome. Research supports the efficacy of visualization in a wide variety of contexts, including skill improvement, healing, and motivation. Use the visualization exercise guide to recap the benefits that visualization offers.
You’ve experienced the power of anchoring if a particular song brings back a flood of emotions, or if the mere smell of the perfume someone you’re attracted to wears sends your heart fluttering. Anchoring is a powerful exercise to help anyone use either a verbal or non-verbal cue to re-experience resourceful mental and physiological states. The regular and disciplined use of anchors can help us develop the confidence to meet situational demands, surmount challenges.
