How to Steal the Self Talk of Elite Athletes to Help You Win | Deep Dive | #011

Is there a science to the conversations that we have with ourselves? What strategies can we use to maximize our performance through the way we talk.

I recently read the book Chatter by Ethan Kross to better understand how to navigate the conversations that we have with ourselves. This episode highlights the areas in the book that I think are most relevant to athletes and high performers.

I highly recommend reading the full book!
