Why Are We Crushing Our Kids' Mental Flexibility?
The Secrets to Winning Podcast with Dr. Bhrett McCabe
A common question I get from people is, "What does it take to bounce back?" One of the biggest myths in performance is when you experience something negative, you should snap your fingers and it should automatically go away.
We train our athletes by saying, "Just let it go. It doesn't matter. Focus on the next play." As if it is that easy. If you took the time, mental and physical energy, and purpose to give everything you have and put it into that moment, how can you simply "let go?"
In this episode, I talk about why developing mental flexibility is so important for competitors and some tools and strategies you can utilize to develop mental flexibility in your athletes and yourself.
