The 98% is a podcast for actors, by actors and addresses what life is ‘really’ like for the majority of actors and performers. In this episode they talk with performance psychologist Dr. Steve Bull who is a ‘high performance consultant’, author and speaker. In his 30+ year career he has coached CEOs, Olympic gold medalists, professional actors and university academics. He’s written a total of 8 books, the latest of which ‘The Game Plan: Your guide to mental toughness at work’ has received considerable praise and has been sold in more than 10 countries around the world. He is also the father of one of the presenters of The 98% which gives him a unique insight in the life of an actor/performer.
In this episode Katie and Alexa talk about their experiences of having to be resilient. Dr. Steve Bull gives some very useful tips and techniques on mental toughness, managing nerves and pressure and how to stay positive (about 30mins into the episode). I found this an incredibly useful podcast and definitely worth a listen wether you’re a professional or an amateur singer.
