24 min / Published

We all get triggered by some things, in some way or another. 😤 This can be good to mobilize one's energy for the sake of a good performance, or it can block an Athlete's optimal performance.

 What about being able to not letting criticism get the best out from you, and picking on the useful information that is coming from the sensitive topic pointed at?

 As the Author of this Speech, the Referee Frederik Imbo tells: “Most of us are referees at heart; we like to call throws and errors on someone else.”

 Tune in on this PotW to check out how this plays out, and how you can become better able to regulate all of this, and efficiently manage when people criticize you more harshly or point at some deficits in your performance.

 A path to E-W-S indeed, on this extended PotW.
