You work extremely hard to prepare for high-pressure or competitive situations, and it’s incredibly frustrating when results do not measure up to your effort. There is one thing you can do to help boost confidence and encourage your best when it matters: Set Intentions.
Intentions are things that you can or will do empower you to focus (that’s a bonus!) and believe in yourself. This increases your self-efficacy (your belief about your capability to produce designated levels of performance that exercise influence over events that affect your life.) For example, “At 4:00-4:30 p.m. today I will spend 30 minutes compiling research for a presentation.” So, the outcome of the presentation is uncertain, but there is certainty surrounding your preparation and execution.
Why it works.
Setting Intentions gives you control over what’s important to being able to do your best. It’s...
Feeling a bit out of control or worried? (You’re not alone:).
Learning how to master your mindset can help you to feel more grounded and less worried. You can learn to go from consuming and reacting to learning, doing and moving forward.
Let’s take a few minutes to see how you and/or your team or your family members are doing! This is not a scientific assessment, just a general starting guideline to shine some light on where it may be helpful to improve, so you can be more calm, productive and optimistic.
