Read pdf The Ultra Mindset (Audio Download): Travis Macy, John Hanc, Brian Hutchison, Recorded Books: Audible Audiobooks By Travis Macy –

Sports psychology basics Good for someone with no background in the area I found it a little basic but really good to introduce athletes to the concepts of an endurance mindset. Travis Macy has summited glacial peaks in the French Alps, rappelled into limestone caves in China, and raced through parched deserts in Utah Inhe famously won the Leadman Series, a combination of nearlymiles of high altitude trail running and mountain biking over the course of five epic endurance races Macy achieved all of these victories without elite professional training or even exceptional strength, speed, or flexibility His secret A precise outlook he calls the ultra mindset , a set of simple principles for daily life that includes embracing fear, rewriting the stories we tell ourselves, and mastering the art of asking for help By practicing these principles in all areas of life, anyone can successfully achieve goals that might have otherwise seemed impossible Great stories from a legendary athlete Each chapter has a essentially a psychological self improvement task and tips which are useful Can t get my husbands head out of it Great, inspiring book, highly recommended I thought this was a great book full of practical advice that can be applied across all arenas of life I m no ultra runner but so much of this really resonated with me as someone that s training for their longest distance yet a half marathon in my case A lot of the advice here definitely transcends training I feel it could have been applied to just about every hard circumstance I ve faced in life. Das Buch ist sehr empfehlenswert Besonders gef llt mir die pers nliche Art des Autors sich mit Beispielen aus seinem Leben zu reflektieren.Travis Macy bietet auch eine Ultra Mindset Academy an 8 Wochen Kurs , um die Kapitel des Buches durchzuarbeiten. Ideally when reading you should be willing to pause and start on the exercises Some of the exercises and notes are simple and should be effective in most people s lives One of the recurring themes of this book is how to outsmart one s one s own brain winning the argument when your internal voice tells you to give up The stories in this book will not only keep you on the edge of your seat, but they ll become part of your own inner voice in powerful ways.I ve been surprised at how often the lessons from The Ultra Mindset have suddenly popped into my own head, just when I needed them While going out for a trail run the other day, my inner voice started telling me to slow down and take it easy, since I wasn t feeling 100% But quickly another voice joined the conversation, drawing from Mindset 1, and chanting It s all good mental training My attitude quickly shifted from trying to weasel out early, into pushing harder, and running 50% longer than I had planned.Being a working father of two, the lessons about time management from this book really struck a chord with me Particularly Mindset 6 The 4 30 a.m Rule Sometimes having a full day of work, exercise, and quality time with the family means committing to waking up obscenely early to get things done Before reading this book, I would often talk myself out of it right after my alarm went off But now I ve got another mantra to counter that voice you ve already committed ahead of time, so there s no choice to make and I spring out of bed, ready to face the day.As I enter a new chapter of my professional life, I ve battled with Impostor Syndrome, worrying that I don t belong here I don t deserve this And when I found myself flip flopping between the choice of sticking with my safe well known position, or accepting something much challenging and full of unknowns, Mindset 4 Have an ego and use it helped push me over the edge I was able to summon strength from my ego instead of being afraid of it, and confidently march forward into the unknown.The most amazing thing is that I never once had to try to recall these lessons, or force my mind into Ultra Mindset mode These stories and lessons have become part of my inner narrative I ve never said with all seriousness before that a book has changed my life, until now. The Ultra Mindset s than just for running, but for life I just interviewed Travis Macy for our Inspire Nation Show, and it s clear the mindset that s helped him become a champion ultra runner can help us all in the game of life.He breaks down the book, and key concepts into 8 succinct mindsets or strategies, which makes it easy to follow, digest, and to implement I love the 4 30 Rule, anything s possible when you don t have a choice And 8 Never quit, except when you should There s a lot of great advice in here, and I can t recommend it enough Of course, being an ultra endurance athlete myself, I LOVE the stories They re inspiring and make me want to get moving, whether on the trails, my bike, or when it warms up again, paddling out on the water.You don t have to be an athlete to enjoy this book, but the stories are fun Thank you Travis for an amazing book, one I m sure will help people in business, in life, and on the trails Woo Hoo
