In Hacking Fear, we cover many strategies to disrupt these defense habit loops and break through to achieve your athletes' goals. For example, you are not afraid of your stove top, though it could cause you pain. You know the outcome of touching a hot stove top. You don't fear it, you respect it. Fear is most often caused by uncertainty. We fear the unknown. If you want to remove fear, remove uncertainty.
We go in-depth on specific actionable methods of disrupting habit loops, using repetition to create a new behavior pattern and using positive association to keep the athlete focused on what you want them to focus on. We also discuss the dangers of applying labels such as "mental case" to your athletes and how this can be damaging as they internalize these labels. This creates a self-fulfilling prophecy that enforces their unwanted behaviors.
