PVC Mental Strategy 3.5
There are two forms of human communication, external and internal. External is when you speak to others, or others speak to you. Internal is when you talk to yourself, or your inner voice talks to you.
Human communication can be true or false. Of the four, there’s only one form that’s 100% truthful, all of the time. Can you guess which one? If you chose your inner voice, you’re correct. Think of it as a compass that will steer you straight and do what’s best for you if you heed its advice.
In this PVC challenge, you have two tasks. In Column 1, write down one negative thing others tell you about your swimming, or you tell yourself. In Column 2, write down what your inner voice tells you. To get the best advice, sit or lie in a quiet place free from all distractions. It’s also wise to do some deep breathing before starting to quiet your mind. If you can’t hear your inner voice at first, give it time. Repeat the entire process three more times. When you’ve completed the challenge, compare Columns 1 and 2. As mentioned, your inner voice acts as a compass and will steer you straight if you listen, so from now on, let it be your guide.
