We all know the outcome we want. To win. But, do you know the process it takes to reach your outcome? Process Over Outcome. It’s one of the pillars of my Mental Performance Certification Course; perhaps the most important one. A process over outcome mentality is the ability to stay focused on the journey without getting too caught up in the destination. The process is all of the little steps needed to reach your goal: meal prep, practices, strength and conditioning, wins along the way down to winning that pitch.
