I’m a 49er fan and thought my team would be wearing SuperBowl rings by now. I froze in disbelief when the Seahawks took clever advantage of a bad pass in the last minutes of the NFC championship game. I admit it….. I grumbled a little when the Seahawks won the Superbowl, I thought, ” it should have been the 49ers”. I’m sure I wasn’t the only one. BUT, I’ve changed my tune this week after I attended the Wisdom 2.0 talk by Michael Gervais, the Seahawks Team Psychologist/High Performance Coach. He explained that the Seahawks practice of Mindfulness, Visualization of Potential, Presence, Affirmations, Intentions and rapid failure recovery contributed strongly to the circumstances for the Seahawks to accept the top prize in the NFL. They don’t talk about winning, they practice, execute and detach from the outcome. Wow! Below the grandeur of the win was a quiet knowingness we all have access to and is critical to develop for any truly High Performance Practice. Their win makes PERFECT sense to me now, I’ve let go of the grumbles.
Hey 49ers….better luck….or shall I say “better wisdom” next year…feel free to book a Session with me via the tab above, I’d love to help
