The mind and body are so well connected that it becomes difficult to achieve a favorable outcome when the proper mindset is not present. The right state of mind must be established first. The appropriate mindset can bridge the gap between what you think you can accomplish and what you actually achieve.
Great performers further develop their physical abilities by employing their mental skills. By remembering positive parts of their past performances they think constructive thoughts, visualize competent images and feel confident feelings. They draw on these positive memories to prepare themselves mentally for quality practice, performances and joyful life experiences. Performing at a high level in your mind and feeling it in your body allows you to create the conditions for success without having actually executed those performances in real time.
We live in a world of make believe; we make what we believe. The greatest barriers in our quest to excel are the psychological ones that we impose on ourselves, often unconsciously. With the proper mental training you can learn to break through these blocks and enhance your motivation, self-confidence and ultimately your performance.
Sport is a metaphor for everything we do and feel in life. The most creative and effective methods used by champion performers can be acquired and integrated into any area of your life. You too can enjoy superior performance and have greater day-to-day fulfillment, not only on the athletic field but in any field of life.
