The Right Headspace

Being in the wrong headspace is a bad time for taking on challenges.

It’s better to listen to yourself and step back.

That’s what Simone Biles did in the Olympics – she battled inner voices that robbed her of her usual confidence and knew enough to take a time out.

Same for the rest of us.

Handling problems at work or personal pow-wows are not worth the mistakes that could be made by not being fully mentally available to participate.

This is an advantage not a shortcoming.

Former Olympic athlete Shannon Miller nailed it:

“We have to pay close attention to ourselves to notice those clues that something doesn’t quite feel right, and then take appropriate action to get the care and support we need.”
