Belief Before Data (Episode 19

3/29/2021
We are conditioned to believe that we have to earn what we have and who we are. This belief influences our actions and the choices we make. As endurance athletes this means many of us believe that we have to earn the right to call ourselves “athletes”, “runners”, “triathletes” or whichever title we might be striving for; that our target pace or watts will validate the identities we’re seeking. Why do we delegate this belief in ourselves to our data numbers or other external factors? This week Vanessa takes a deep dive into how our big, beautiful human brains can sabotage our belief in ourselves, and gives us two simple steps to help build our self-belief (before the data!)

Taming Race Doubt (Episode 18)

3/22/2021
Race season is about to (hopefully!) ramp up in the US, which for many of us triathletes is so exciting after a year of no official start lines. However, racing can also come with a lot of doubt or pressure in the form of the expectations that we put on ourselves as athletes. Vanessa offers us two types of expectations that she believes athletes succumb to, and tells us how we can shift our mental energy from feelings of doubt to confidence and capability.

Result Capacity (Episode 17)

3/15/2021
Last week Vanessa taught us that it is on each of us to take responsibility for our own belief, but where is the best place to start? This week she gives us one belief that we can start to work on right now; our result capacity. A greater result capacity leads to a greater capacity to achieve. Vanessa gives us three questions to ask ourselves that will allow us to get curious about our current result capacity, and teaches us how we can shift our definition of capacity to be centered on what can be produced without limits.

Belief Responsibility (Episode 16)

3/8/2021
We all have responsibilities; paying bills, showing up at work… but have you ever considered your responsibility to believe in yourself? In this week’s episode, Vanessa explains that we all have the responsibility to believe in ourselves and our own goals first. As triathletes this could mean how much we believe that we will nail our next training session, qualify for Kona, or even our belief that we’ve earned that next promotion at work. We create our results by what we believe the most. This isn’t something that we can rely on from others; our success is dependent on our own belief in ourselves.

The Power of Presence (Episode 15)

3/1/2021
How often do you sit down and ask yourself “how do I feel”? This week, Vanessa explains why this question is important and how it can connect us with our inner environment. The simple, yet sometimes difficult practice of presence is an important aspect of training our brains to think, act, and train in a more intentional and purposeful way. The concept of neuroplasticity explains that our brains are capable of changing patterns at any stage of life, but in order to do so we must be consciously present in our thoughts, feelings and actions to create space for these changes to happen.
