    83. A WIN Acronym to Win consistently, ft. Dr. Eddie O'Connor - QBIO #20

    83. A WIN Acronym to Win consistently, ft. Dr. Eddie O'Connor - QBIO #20

    Winning produces probably the most thrilling and desired feelings 🔥 to have in Sports.

     On this (not so) ‘Quick Bring it On’ Episode, I provide a little important tweak you can take with you around the word “WIN” .

     This one is for a deeper focus on the present moment during practice or competition (and to what the game asks from you), and a not so deep fusion with your emotionality and thinking sides that are creeping in there and becoming unhelpful.

      ( Essential Interview Mentioned is on EWS Episode #77 )

    81. When Taking Things Personally - Impacts of Criticism, @TedTalk Frederik Imbo - Potw #18

    81. When Taking Things Personally - Impacts of Criticism, @TedTalk Frederik Imbo - Potw #18

    We all get triggered by some things, in some way or another. 😤 This can be good to mobilize one's energy for the sake of a good performance, or it can block an Athlete's optimal performance.

     What about being able to not letting criticism get the best out from you, and picking on the useful information that is coming from the sensitive topic pointed at?

     As the Author of this Speech, the Referee Frederik Imbo tells: “Most of us are referees at heart; we like to call throws and errors on someone else.”

     Tune in on this PotW to check out how this plays out, and how you can become better able to regulate all of this, and efficiently manage when people criticize you more harshly or point at some deficits in your performance.

     A path to E-W-S indeed, on this extended PotW.

    80. Feelings Prior to Performance - Adaptation & Reflection, from Ravizza K. - IQ #17

    80. Feelings Prior to Performance - Adaptation & Reflection, from Ravizza K. - IQ #17

    An IQ to shake some preconditions and expectations 🤕 Athletes usually have in regards to their own levels of performance on training sessions or competition matches.

     This will inspire a reflection for yourself about your feelings and the way you look at them. Plus, on how they are influencing what you’re bringing (or being able to bring) to the pitch - to your performance.

     I hope in the end, you will not need (depend) that much of feeling X or Y to perform well (the most adapted possible - with effort) 😉

    PS.: I heard this message before from Ken, but here is a link with the excerpt from an interview he gave and pronounced the quote, exploring it.

    79. Regret or Embarrassment - Psychological Tendencies in Sports, QBIO #19

    A QBIO to entertain your brain for reflection (😬 vs 😳).

     How does the prospect of regret may influence your sporting practice (on training ground and during competitions)? How so, being embarrassed for some mistake, may contain a gem to be picked for learning?

     Examples are provided, and with this one, I would really love if you wrapped your mind around this and delve in it a bit more. So for that, you can share more by going on the 3rd link below:
