3 Strategies to help generate positive inner energy

Your energy influences a lot when it comes to your performance. It is not just about how pumped up or relaxed you need to be but also what type of energy you need to feel. The blend between the kind of energy and the level of energy is what will help you elevate your performance. Here we will look at three ways to generate positive inner energy to help you be more present and drop into a flow state.

Prime the feelings

Too often, we let how things are going or how we wake up in the morning determine our energy. You can create the energy that you need to perform. One of the ways you can help prime the feelings you need is through imagery. You can use imagery to imagine past success to help build confidence, imagine playing with a pet to help generate joy or imagine being in a relaxing place to help calm down and feel more at peace. Another way is also through listening to music. Music can help you not only elevate or bring down your level of energy but also help generate the type of energy you need. Ensure you know how the music you listen to impacts your feelings.

Anticipate positive outcomes from your actions while at the same time being realistic.

It is essential to be optimistic and have faith in yourself and that your actions will create positive outcomes while at the same time addressing things not going according to plan and making action steps to help you. Finding this balance is essential, and often athletes don't look at the what-ifs constructively and instead get caught up in worrying about things not going well. Nothing will ever go perfectly or one hundred percent according to plan. This is why it is important to address them, make a plan, and then if something happens, you need to focus only on executing the plan to help you.

Practice Gratitude

Gratitude is one of the most important practices you can have. It helps you be more optimistic and lean into joy. Both of which are paramount to high performance. So find ways to feel and acknowledge the things you are grateful for each day.
