In this episode, we talk about the impact of overthinking on your performance, happiness and fulfillment. Dr. Cindra Kamphoff encourages us to use the Truth Meter when you notice yourself overthinking or believing a thought that doesn’t serve you. Your mind tends to lie to you to keep you safe and small. Instead, take control of your mind and choose a better thought that would serve you right now to play bigger and step into your courage zone. Remember, your mind does not control you, you can control your mind. 

 

Power Phrase this Week: “I control my mind. My mind does not control me.” 

Quote of the Week: “Pressure isn’t supposed to break us, it’s designed to make us.” Sarah Johnson

Len is a former president and a fellow of the Association for Applied Sport Psychology.

Dan is an Author, Speaker and Consultant. Specializing at the intersection of neuroscience and sports performance, Dan combined twenty-five years of technology management experience with his second life as a sports dad and coach to explore how athletes make decisions.

This week on the podcast we share a powerful strategy to help you respond not react. When you respond, you choose thoughtfulness and are guided by logic over emotion. You are intentional with your intentions. 

 

Power Phrase this Week: “I choose to respond with purpose and intention.” 

Quote of the Week: “When you react, you are giving away your power. When you respond, you are staying in control of yourself.” Bob Proctor

If Dr. Norman Vincent Peale was writing his incredibly popular book, The Power of Positive Thinking, today he would need to add a separate chapter on John Kriesel.

In 2006 Kriesel was nearly blown to shreds by a 200 pound roadside bomb in the parched sands of Iraq. He died three times and was shocked back to life. Somehow he survived through four hospitals, 35 surgeries and months of recovery. He lost both legs and suffered numerous other major injuries, but it was the loss of two close friends that hurt the most.

The guy who wasn’t supposed to survive and was told he probably would be in a wheelchair the rest of his life walked out of Walter Reed Army Medical Center after nine months. His transition from military to civilian life offered many challenges, but his amazing support system, positive attitude and sense of humor allowed him to bounce back stronger than ever.

 

In 2010 he was elected to the Minnesota House of Representatives but decided not to seek re-election when his family said they wanted to spend more time with him. He is director of veterans services for a County in Suburban Minneapolis, MN, a part-time personality on KFAN Radio, motivational speaker, and co-author of the book, “Still Standing: The Story of SSG John Kriesel,” winner of 8 national book awards. 

 

In this episode, John and Cindra discuss:

  • The warrior’s mindset
  • His “second chance at life” perspective
  • Lessons he learned in the hospital
  • Strategies to respond to adversity and challenges
  • Why it is essential to not compare our adversity to others

This week on the podcast, we talk about how being courageous and taking calculated risks is essential for success. You can’t go after your goals without some risk and courage. When you encounter obstacles, stress and pressure, a key is to see these obstacles as a challenge not a threat. Remember, you have everything inside you that you need! Choose courage over comfort. 

Power Phrase this Week: “I am courageous and go after my goals. I see obstacles as a challenge in front of me.” 

Quote of the Week: "Don’t let the fear of failure become an obstacle. No one ever reached the stars from the comfort of their couch!" Richard Branson
