For the past six months we’ve been talking about how to recognize and overcome unintentional negative thoughts called limiting beliefs - the unfortunate habit of putting limits on our ability to succeed, not because were incapable of it, but because we tell ourselves we are! The good news is that limiting beliefs can be overcome, but only if we recognize them first. After all, if it doesn’t feel broken, why would we bother trying to fix it?

Following a whirlwind clinic tour spanning 60 clinics in 35 cities over 60 days, Daniel Stewart carved out some time to sit down with Event Clinics and talk about his unique Equestrian Athlete Camps. Held throughout the year at the United States Olympic Training Centers (USOTC), these internationally acclaimed unmounted camps are a favorite of riders from all backgrounds looking to advance their sports psychology and fitness. We were lucky enough to hear great tips for dealing with horse show anxiety!

For the past several months we’ve been discussing limiting beliefs, those unintentional negative thoughts that have a tricky way of sneaking into your brain and limiting your ability to believe in yourself. There’s no limit to the number of different ways limiting beliefs can pop into your head, but one of the most common is as a blindspot bias - a negative thoughts that’s there - even though you don’t think it’s there (like a car hiding in your vehicle’s blindspot).

A few months ago we started a seven-part series on limiting beliefs, the tendency to sometimes place limits on our ability to succeed - not because we’re incapable of it - but because we tell ourselves we’re incapable of it. This month, let’s continue this conversation by discussing a new blindspot bias called confirmation bias.

For the past few months we’ve been talking about limiting beliefs, those unintentional negative thoughts that have a nasty way of limiting our ability to think in a confident way. While limiting beliefs come in all shapes and sizes, most of them come in the form of blindspot biases - negative thoughts we don’t think we’re thinking even though we’re thinking them (whew… that’s a lot of thinking!).

Last month we continued our conversation about blindspot biases - the unintentional and often-times harmful tendency to think in a negative way without even knowing about it. As you will recall, these hidden thoughts are called blindspot biases because they can get you into a lot of trouble - just like a car hidden in your blindspot can get you into a lot trouble!

Last month we began a seven-part series on limiting beliefs, our unintentional tendency to sometimes place limits on our ability to succeed - not because we’re incapable of success, but because we tell ourselves that we’re incapable of it! For example, if you tell yourself that you never ride well in front of judges, there’s very little chance you'll ever really ride well in front of judges (be careful what you wish for, you might just get it!) Tell yourself, how

This month we’re going to begin a seven-part series on a subject you’re sure to have experienced and one that, at some point in your life, has held you back from achieving your best. This month we're going to begin talking about limiting beliefs - the idea that sometimes our beliefs can unintentionally limit our ability to succeed without even knowing it.

A few months ago we began a series of tips on positive thinking. During this time we talked about a neat trick called "Create / Concentrate / Enunciate", where you repeat a positive sentence over and over again while emphasizing a different word each time.

Last month we continued our four-part series on positive thinking by talking about thought chatter (or what I often call brain babble). If you recall, your brain thinks up to 60,000 thoughts each day (that’s about 40 thoughts a minute, or one thought every 1.5 seconds).
