    [ DB - 7 January 2019 ] Talk It Up!

    Talk It Up!

    Remember that moment in The Matrix when Trinity, running from an Agent she knew she could not beat, made an impossible jump and ended up at the bottom of a stairwell expecting to have the fight of her life? She talked to herself then in the third person. Aloud.



    You might think this is a dramatic device to heighten tension in a film but it is actually way deeper than that. Research shows that self talk, like this, which closely associates what we want to do (our task) with what we say to ourselves (our goal), allows the brain to prepare better for it and boosts performance in whatever task we perform, whether that is physical, like running against the clock, or mental such as tackling a difficult deadline.

    So, don't be afraid to talk yourself up. You have to be your own best cheerleader to boost your performance levels.
