The Love the Inner Athlete Podcast | Sink Mental Toughness MythsJan 25, 2023
I’ve got news. I’m going to be like a fisherman and cast it to you. Hopefully it will reel you in.
I’ve got a name for my podcast. I think you will get hooked. The net result — you will learn how to sink the mental toughness myths. Bring mental fitness to the surface.
Watch for the Love the Inner Athlete Podcast. I’m excited because I think you are going to love the guests.
I am a bit overwhelmed as I have realized all the things that are required to challenge the mental toughness myths. All while seeing 20+ athletes every week.
It pushed me for growth. I’ve realized the mental toughness myths created PITS for me.
I’ve known but never really completely acknowledge that I have attention issues. My wife says the dog knows — he follows me knowing I will drop food and not know.
I decided it was time to dig into it. I took a test of variable attention. It emphatically showed I had ADD.
I believed I could manage it and planned to just continue. I was talking with someone I respect about the results. She suggested meds because It was game changing for her.
I thought no way. I stigmatized myself.
Next day I took my daily medication for acid reflux. I never stigmatized myself for that. I accepted it would improve my life and decrease risks for cancer.
I guess I wasn’t born in a log cabin I built myself (LOL). Me and no one would label me as weak.
I landed on — try it. See what it does. It may improve the quality of your life.
It did. Game changer. I use a whoop and a couple biofeedback devices daily. My sleep scores and biofeedback scores have dramatically increased. Changed the game for me. Another myth defeated.
I am still GOD’s kid. Still loved by the same people. I won’t be convicted of anything. Better me. And it already helped me to better tackle the myths. Eventually I’ll tackle like the ’85 Bears instead of the ’22 Vikings.
