Know thyself

In order to reach your optimum performance level you need to first understand yourself. That means taking a physical, mental, and spiritual self-inventory/assessment in order to understand your strengths, weaknesses, and gaps.

Until we can understand ourselves we will always be limited by a false image of who we assume we are. This might be based on external perceptions and not on a true understanding of who you are and who you can become.

Physical: Not just your ideal attributes; look at what is needed to perform in your profession/sport. Are you training the right energy systems, do you spend enough time on mobility, what movements should you be doing but you’re not?

Mental: How is your current mental state impacting your performance? What skills do you use, what don’t you use? How’s your self-talk? Do you build a plan prior to competition, set goals, use imagery, build confidence, and pursue greatness through having a mastery mindset?

Spiritual: Not just faith but your belief in yourself. Where do you put your faith and trust? If your answer is nowhere then you have some work to be doing.

Seek to better yourself through knowing yourself.
