Boost Your Self-Confidence

Posted on Updated on

Boost your self-confidence:

Another advantage of visualization in training is the opportunity to boost your confidence. It’s been well documented that high confidence correlates to an increased level of performance. By visualizing yourself succeeding, you can subconsciously improve your belief in yourself and your abilities.

To enhance your self-confidence, try implementing:

  • self-affirmation
  • self-talk into your daily routine

Spend 5 minutes 1-2 days before big race. Before going to sleep, stand in front of the mirror repeating specific, positive messages to yourself. The mirror helps engage the visual receptors in the brain and helps internalize the positive messages.

Phrases such as:

  • I am fit
  • I am fast

Create your own self-affirmation phrase and spend 5 minutes repeating it to yourself. Before you know it, there won’t be a doubt in your mind you’re going to perform on race day.
