Neutral or Happy
In Lynn Marriott and Pia Nilsson’s book, “Every Shot Must Have a Purpose,” their mantra is “neutral or happy” from an emotional standpoint. A lot of emotional outbreak, whether positive or negative, is not good.
If you’re overly congratulatory and excited about positive things that are happening, you risk throwing your adrenaline out of control, over-adrenalizing yourself. And neutral or happy has always served me well, whether I’m having to shoot a particular testy target or pair of targets in front of a crowd to demo something.
We work with people on turning everything that happens around you and to you into a positive. Every negative thought is a down payment on your failure. And every positive thought is an investment on your future success and confidence.
It’s become very obvious that this is one of the quickest steps to building your confidence.
