Maintaining a Positive Mindset During Competition Season

Due to my busy travel and competition schedule, I haven't been able to schedule podcast interviews like usual. As a result, I've been documenting my experiences during this competition season, and for this episode, I'll discuss how I maintain a positive pre-show mindset.

What you'll hear:

  • The psychology of preparing for a big endeavor and how it affects dopamine (1:34)
