Mental preparation goes hand in hand with achieving your goals. Every single item you list in ‘the middle of the circle of life’ is an important step towards completing that goal for the day. If you don’t fulfil these steps, you often won’t hit your target.
Sometimes, it can be challenging to complete every single item in your inner circle – that's where mental training, repetition and practice comes in. You might have to step outside your comfort zone to reach some goals, and don’t be afraid to ask for support. Be honest with yourself and what you can achieve, and eventually you’ll reach greater heights.
And most importantly, start today. It can be easy to put off mental preparation, but once you experience its benefits, you’ll wish you’d have done it sooner.
