Mental Practice Makes Perfect
When you have a difficult phone call to make or a job interview perhaps one of the best things you can do is to mentally rehearse the whole process. It’s not just about visualising success but more about visualising the whole process. Thinking about not just what you will say but how you will be, how you will interact with others around you and also about the body language you will use.
It’s a technique that is regularly carried out by surgeons and elite athletes but one that we can take up too and with regular consistent use it can be very successful to help us deal with challenging situations.
