In this introspective podcast, Eric details the vital role of improving your self-awareness in the pursuit of greater efficacy in the gym, at the crag, and in pursuing any important goal. Listen, apply…achieve!
Self-awareness is the ability to monitor your internal climate, comprising your thoughts, physical sensations, and emotions, as well as the quality of your actions in the gym, at the crag, and in pursuing your life goals. Improving performance in anything demands that you develop higher awareness in each of these areas. Only this way can you improve your efficacy, make beneficial course corrections, and elevate your performance.
In this podcast, Coach Horst details six areas to strive for increased self-awareness in order to pursue excellence in climbing…and beyond.
