Negativity destroys performance, so it is crucial to train to move from witnessing negative thoughts to starving them and feeding the positive. This is the specific process:
1. Witness negativity.
2. Interdict, or stop, the negative thoughts with a power statement.
3. Redirect your mind with self-talk and imagery to something positive and productive for your current goal.
4. Maintain your new mental state with a jingle or mantra.
Witness + Interdict + Redirect + Maintain.
