I have a technique I want to share with you today about how to overcome pressure. My whole platform is find a way to win using creativity and tenacity to perform your best under pressure. So, I have a technique on how can you actually perform better under pressure. What’s the technique I want to share?
I realize that sounds simple, and some of you are probably thinking, “Come on, man”. Even me, I’m thinking, “really, meditation?” The answer is, yes. Currently, there is quite a lot of focus on mindfulness. However, mindfulness is not new. It’s actually been around for three or four decades. It’s very well established and it’s becoming more and more mainstream. As I do my homework on helping you perform better under pressure, whether: it’s an exam; or you’re talking to the board; or you’re presenting to the investors; or you’re on the sports field; or you’re in the audition room at some point you will find yourself in that pressure moment. So, how do you get better at it?
