Elite performers typically have high standards.

Some may engage in negative self-talk as a strategy to maintain the high levels they’ve set for themselves.

But once this gets out of hand, it can become detrimental to their performance.

As the old adage goes, “Too much of anything is bad for you.

If you’ve got massive goals, you’re not too dissimilar from an elite performer…

It’s likely you put lots of pressure on yourself to deliver, and that’s okay in moderation.

Balancing self-criticism with positive reinforcement is crucial for maintaining mental health and achieving sustained success.

The problem is most people don’t balance their self-critique with positive reinforcement…

They tear into themselves with zero remorse.

These constant negative remarks eventually develop into beliefs they hold against themselves — “I’m just not good at sales,” they might say.

Such thoughts must be controlled.

The catch is your brain will do everything possible to keep you trapped in the past.
