Hockey Player Mike Fisher, a 17-year NHL veteran hit 1, 000 games in March*! It’s a tremendous accomplishment especially in a sport where only 4 percent of NHL players reach 1000 games and over half never make it to 100 games**.
People who enjoy long successful careers are not only gifted physically, they prioritise their mental performance. They choose systems and protocols that have a proven record of results.
Mental and emotional stress resulting from both the external and internal pressure of being
a business leader or world-class athlete can result in Brain Overload (B.O.)
and that stinks.
Symptoms Of Brain Overload
• Mental and physical exhaustion
• Mental confusion
• Debilitating lack of confidence
• Analysis paralysis
• Inconsistent results
• Sleeplessness or broken sleep
• Inability to unwind.
• Inappropriate emotional outbursts.
Brain Overload slows down the brain, which in turn negatively impacts performance, confidence, enjoyment of work or sport, all major factors that can contribute to poor results and ultimately early retirement.
How Do You Get Brain-Overload?
Simple, too much information and unrelenting internal pressure in the form of negative self-talk, self-doubt and our own expectations and external pressure from bosses, staff, coaches, media, family and fan expectations.
The answer, though, isn’t to eliminate the pressure but to help the brain defend against the onslaught of negative forces so it can be your most powerful weapon.
The Biggest Mistake Business Leaders And Elite Athletes Make When Managing Brain-Overload
Reality check, the biggest mistake most people make is trying to fix the problem by working harder.
There’s nothing wrong with good old-fashioned hard work, it got you to the level you’re at now. The problem is that just working on your form and doing more conditioning is like changing the tires on your car when the problem is the engine. If the problem is Brain Overload, then you work on the brain.
