This Is How to CRUSH Your Negative Self-Talk Habit

Presented by Spartan Training®

"I'm just not strong or fast enough," an athlete says. "I'm a terrible public speaker and no one will ever listen to my ideas," a prospective entrepreneur says. "I'm not as smart as my peers," a medical student says.

What do all of these statements have in common? They're all examples of negative self-talk — when your inner monologue becomes your own harshest critic, sounding pessimistic to a fault — which can not only diminish your confidence and talk you out of attempting hard things, but it can also make you feel like failure before you've even attempted something.

Negative self-talk is something that plenty of people, athletes included, struggle with. On this episode of the Spartan Up! podcast, Spartan Way host Zach Even-Esh talks with four-time NCAA All American Wrestler and Cornell Coach Gabe Dean about how to conquer self-doubt, deal with inevitable failure, and approach new situations with a positive mindset.
