I train with a super gorgeous, badass and strong group of younger women. They are fierce, dedicated and smart.
They have asked me, each one:
“Eileen. How have you reached the high level of international success and fame you now enjoy as a Female Masters Weightlifter? What, oh old one, is your secret?”
Knowing that it is my privilege to share my wisdom with younger people, I gave this much thought. My conclusion is that positive self-talk is the single most powerful aspect of my highly focused, disciplined and regulated life as a world renowned athlete.
You have all heard about the power of positive self talk. I am here to tell you: it works.
Here are two examples from my training logs. Let me know if you have any questions – I am happy to help any of you in any way I can.
Positive Self Talk: Clean and Jerk
Positive Self Talk: Snatch
