Self-Image

Commentary

These videos from Collin are solid gold!

Self-image always stems from a person or situation that began the cycle of negative self-image.

Great question to always ask yourself when you are underestimating yourself…

“Who told you that?”

Go back to the genesis of this image and reject it.

In my career I was told hundreds of times that I wasn’t going to be good enough to make it.

I didn’t worry about the destination, I focused on things that I had control over and my self-image was based on working hard, being fearless and being all in.

Create the image you want and find others that will encourage you in this.

Lesson


Mental Skills Coach Collin Henderson shares a key to unlimited potential – a positive self-image – and the importance of not allowing your athletic performance to define you.

Your Turn

Create your own Self-Image Delta.
What are three words you can use to assess your performance in any given situation?

Create your own Me Wheel.
What are you passionate about? What drives your validation and self-worth? What defines you?

Final Thoughts

The most powerful force is how you see yourself. Your identity and self-image has been proven to be one of the biggest drivers of habits, discipline, and performance. Remember, your limits begin where your vision ends. Raise the level of how you see yourself and your actions should follow suit. Take some time to identify what key traits you’d like to emulate (self-image delta). Don’t find yourself, create yourself. You can be anything!

Lastly, just know that you are more than one thing. I like to say: person over performer. You are a human being choosing to play a sport. Your performance does not define who you are. Have a more balanced lens of how you see yourself by filling out your Me Wheel. Remember to focus on other positive things in your life. This is an exercise that will give you a healthier perspective on yourself, your environment, and what to focus on after success or failure.

“Thoughts become things.”

“Some people say I have attitude – maybe I do…but I think you have to. You have to believe in yourself when no one else does – that makes you a winner right there.”
