🎧EP19: Self-Talk and Profiling for Maximizing Performance w/ Sport Psychologist Caren Diehl

Summary:

Sport psychology is the mental aspect of sports. How you feel on that day, how confident you are, and how well you are able to cope with the pressure of performing the best that you can.

Dr. Caren Diehl works for the National Institute of Sport in Malaysia as a sport psychologist. Her job is to prepare her athletes and elevate their mental game across three broad sports (tenpin bowling, springboard diving, and sailing) in preparation for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

Caren discusses topics including fear of success and failure, pressure, the thresholds that an athlete can’t exceed if they want to perform to the best of their ability, motivational and instructional self-talk, and building relationships with athletes.

Whether or not you consider yourself an athlete, Caren’s wisdom proves that sport is a metaphor we can all apply to becoming ‘that’ person and achieving our goals.
