    Formula One world champion Max Verstappen on Mind Set Win

    Decoding Athlete fans listen up, we've got something special for you that we think might be right up your alley to satisfy those podcast cravings. Mind Set Win is a podcast about how we can apply the mental tactics that elite athletes use to our everyday lives.

    The new Season kicked off with Formula One world champion Max Verstappen, who talked to us about trusting the process. The Oracle Red Bull Racing driver has perfected the art of not overcomplicating or overthinking his routine and approach, something which helps him keep focus on the important aspects he needs to win races and titles.

    In the episode, hosts Cédric Dumont and York-Peter Klöppel introduce us to a way of thinking that can help us focus on the present moment. It’s called What's Important Now – or WIN. They then tell us how to put it into practice.
    First, identify a large goal you’re working towards. Thinking about the final outcome can become overwhelming, so begin to think about the smaller steps it will take to reach that one goal.
    Finally, begin every day by focusing on What’s Important Now and what you can control in that very moment. This helps keep you focused on the daily achievable goals and the current tasks at hand that will push you towards your end goal.

    Does this sound like it could be useful to you? We recommend you check out Mind Set Win for more tips and tricks on how you can harness the winning mindset of the world's leading sports professionals!
