Ask any great athlete or highly successful person what one of the most important factors is in their high level of achievement and they will say their “inner game”.
Quantum Law says that “Our environment is an extension of our mind. When we change our mind, our life changes…” (Dr. Joe Dispenza)
So what is meant by the inner game? As a former gymnast and one who is in the spotlight of speaking, training and singing, my inner game includes dedicated time to focus on:
- Recognizing and acknowledging the doubts, fears and conditioning of my past.
- Practicing interupting non-supportive thoughts and replacing them with empowering ones.
- Creating a greater version of myself in my mind.
- Rehearsing being the greater version of myself in my mind including how it FEELS to be that.
Taking action then becomes the natural next step, and taking that step is oh, so much easier and joyful after I’ve rehearsed it thoroughly in my mind!
This inside-out approach allows us to essentially create a new reality – a new visceral experience of being the greater version of ourselves without all the pain and suffering of years in the school of hard knocks!
One of the important pieces of my Speak with H.E.A.R.T. System is the inner game. We are not necessarily striving for absolute fearlessness, although that could be an outcome. We are, more accurately, getting those butterflies to fly in formation and take action in spite of old conditioning, dramatically expanding our confidence and comfort zone.
