Thrive, Don’t Just Survive 2021

Today we talk about an extremely important topic, dealing with stress so that we don’t simply survive but move forwards more positively.  I’m joined by Dr John Perry who has led the exploration of specific aspects of Mental Toughness and a variety of applications – including new insights into understanding stress management all of which have direct implication for practitioners.

Key Takeaways:

  • Motivation is a complex phenomenon.
  • How people respond to pressure situations.
  • Sport teaches you that failure and disappointment is a consistency in life.
  • Developing your skills through reflection and self-awareness can improve your mental toughness.
  • Counselling skills are important to help people who struggle to learn from their mistakes and don’t enjoy reflecting.
  • When we’re in a flow state or are present minded it’s a feeling.  It’s a skill transitioning from a cognitive to affective state.
  • People performing at the very top of their fields are able to access affective states more easily.
