Do you find yourself comparing your performance to those around you? Are you letting the successes of other people influence how you feel about your own abilities? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Comparing yourself to others is a common trait among athletes. Although there may be some benefits to this strategy, sometimes the comparison instead leaves you feeling defeated and lowers your self-esteem. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ One of my favorite quotes is “self-esteem is a self-fulfilling prophecy.” Whatever you are telling yourself about yourself is going to come true. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Coach Rebecca offers some great advice in yesterdays Q&A about the pros and cons of comparison and some tips on how to stop comparing yourself to other and refocus your attention on improving yourself! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Just a few of the tips she provides include getting off social media, counting your blessings, and staying true and focusing on YOU. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ✨ To read or listen to the rest of the live Q&A with Coach Rebecca, head over to the blog or Facebook page from the link in the bio! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #PerformHappy #Athlete #SportsPsychology #Performance #Coach #SportsPerformance #MentalToughness #OvercomingFear #SelfEsteem #Comparison
