As we continue to navigate through these uncertain times, it’s easier than ever to feel demotivated. In this episode I tackle the belief systems that prevent us from being optimistic. I’ve selected key insights from the Sporting Edge Member’s Library to learn how world-class performers build their bank of hope and confidence. Just like you and me, they need to play mind games too.

Find out from psychiatry and neuroscience experts Dr Dehra Harris and Dr Tara Swart how our ancient brains and memories impact our wellbeing. Former England cricket captain and commentator Nasser Hussain and former professional British female tennis player Annabel Croft explain how they get their heads in the right place. We also learn how polar explorers remain optimistic at the beginning of their solo expeditions from professor Gro Sandal.
