“You can have all the talent in the world, but it takes a special person with the right attitude to succeed.” Olympian Brenda Martinez

High performers mentally prepare. They spend the majority of their time in the present – not in the past or the future. They accept what they can’t control instead of fighting it. They interpret their nerves as excitement and fly their butterflies in formation.

Week’s Power PhraseI accept what I cannot control instead of fight it. I gain control by keeping my mind in the present.

In this episode, Cindra talks with TJ and Lisa about the Winter Olympic Games using a world-class skier, Mikaela Shiffrin, as an example.

Summary: High performers feel the fear, but don’t let it keep them from doing what they want to, have to, or designed to do.  They know it’s natural to have negativity – but they are aware of it and talk back to build their confidence. They don’t beat themselves up when they fail – but embrace the beauty of the emotions.

Week’s Power PhraseI keep a calm and clear mind. I tell myself anything is possible RIGHT NOW!

In this episode, Cindra talks with TJ and Lisa about how to be a great teammate.

The 10 Practices are featured in Cindra's book, Beyond Grit, and you can find a PDF of the 10 practices of the world's best at: https://www.beyondgrit.com/bonus/.

Magic Johnson once said: “Ask not what your teammates can do for you. Ask what you can do for teammates.”

High performers are a good teammate. They work to support and help others on their team and in their family. They praise others but give honest feedback. They celebrate others and assume whatever role is necessary. They check their ego at the door – instead, are humble and always growing.

This Week’s Power Phrase"I support and celebrate my teammates. I put We before Me!"

In this episode, Cindra talks with TJ and Lisa about the 9th practice of the world's best: they live and let go.

The 10 Practices are featured in Cindra's book, Beyond Grit, and you can find a PDF of the 10 practices of the world's best at: https://www.beyondgrit.com/bonus/.

Summary of the episode: High performers let go of mistakes and tough things so they are not heavy or weighed down. Mistakes and disappointments can teach us a lot about ourselves. It’s important when we do experience failure that we see it as learning tool – perhaps motivating us to improve and get better. The best: learn, burn and return. 

This Week’s Power Phrase:

I see failure and mistakes as opportunity to learn and grow. I will get it next time!
