  1. A beautiful little tweak to the word "Win" to have in mind during tougher moments during Practice or Competition Winning produces probably the most thrilling and desired feelings 🔥 to have in Sports. On this (not so) ‘Quick Bring it On’ Episode, I provide a little important tweak you can take with you around the word “WIN” . This one is for a deeper focus on the present moment during practice or competition (and to what the game asks from you), and a not so deep fusion with your emotionality and thinking sides that are creeping in there and becoming unhelpful. ( Essential

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
  4. Hoping that you (Athlete) shake it off some rules you have around depending on certain feelings to perform "well". Well enough is key, here An IQ to shake some preconditions and expectations 🤕 Athletes usually have in regards to their own levels of performance on training sessions or competition matches. This will inspire a reflection for yourself about your feelings and the way you look at them. Plus, on how they are influencing what you’re bringing (or being able to bring) to the pitch - to your performance. I hope in the end, you will not need (depend) that much of feeling X o
  5. Alittle tricky play on the popular game of "Would you Rather" and drawing on some implications applied to Sports A QBIO to entertain your brain for reflection (😬 vs 😳).

Examples are provided, and with this one, I would really love if you wrapped your mind around this and delve in it a bit more.

A set of reports from an elite NFL player - Russel Wilson, retrieving from a TedTalk he gave.

  9. Dissecting a bit the motivational cliché of "believing in yourself" and that you can improve. A critical element 🚣‍♂️ for any process of learning or improvement: BELIEF. To believe that oneself is capable of improving is often considered as the pivotal aspect that must accompany a person so that that improvement occurs. We all also know that this is too broad of a matter, and that it often sounds as a motivational cliché. Like: “believe in yourself! You are capable of anything” type of statements. Either way, from this episode, I want to show a power
