Building your COTE of Armor. Introduced to you in our March newsletter:
Part two of the four part mini-series.
C - Confidence
O - Optimism
T - Tenacity
E - Enthusiasm
'When we face a high-pressure situation, we feel a mixture of excitement, eagerness, anxiety, and dread. What we experience in such moments is directly influenced by our level of optimism or pessimism. If we are more optimistic and hold a positive expectation of the future, then we will feel more excitement and enthusiasm, while a pessimist will feel more dread and anxiety when facing the same challenging situation.
Optimism helps manage this dread and anxiety, which enables us to perform closer to our capability in a pressure moment.'
Excerpt is taken from page 201 of the Performing under Pressure book.
