    Staying gritty and reaching high performance requires adopting the mindset of constant and never-ending improvement. Showing self-compassion is key to adapting and bouncing back quickly after setbacks, adversity, and mistakes.

When we practice self-compassion, we are able to live and let go.  Power Phrase this Week: “I see failure and mistakes as opportunities to learn and grow.

First, when training your trust, it is important to not wait for confidence – instead, act confidently. Second, we need to doubt our doubts! Most of what we say to ourselves when we doubt ourselves is a lie. The third strategy to train your trust is to be kind to yourself.
