Champions build and maintain a: WINNING ATTITUDE. Champions are always seeking to improve and challenge themselves to achieve: Peak Performance. Champions create a self-image that promotes confidence and accomplishment. They don’t allow their mind from holding them back, whatever their physical gifts or other talents.
Working with Champions have confirmed that the ideas people choose to have about themselves largely determine the lives they lead. We can choose to believe in ourselves, and thus to strive, to race, to preserve, and to achieve. Or we can choose to cling to security and mediocrity.
I Teach What Champions Think. The skills of a Champion are not a mystery. They’re not something that’s either in your genes or not in your genes, like brown eyes. They can be learned. I Teach What Champions Think.
John Wooten, UCLA Basketball coach won ten national titles, was National Coach of the year six times, had four perfect seasons and understood how to coach a: WINNING TEAM.
He understood the meaning of: COURAGE and instilled it in his players. He knew courage was critical for his players to maintain Mental Toughness.
After failure is when courage is really required as confidence disappears.
The Best Are The Most Courageous; most people think they are the most confident.
You have to have courage to continue to succeed – that is the attitude one needs to be the very best they can be.
The best performers never seem to lose self-belief, if they fail they just stand up again and try again and again. They Have Courage.
Be Brave, tell yourself you can do it as you have got all the skills required, and have done the work required and have done similar things before.
Confidence is a much mis-understood concept — as the way we use the word, we only have a right to it if we succeed.
Courage Comes From Deep Inside You – courage has the right implications of aggression yet focus, implies thought and attitude – courage is desire and passion – courage is your choice – Have You Got Courage?
One of the Techniques of Mental Training is: Improve Your Game With Guided Imagery.
Nicklaus always ‘walks through’ a shot and pictures it clearly in his mind’s eye. Jack has disciplined himself to not only see himself but to hear and feel his swing as he mentally moves gracefully toward the ball.
Guided imagery practice and training are not only helpful for improving a particular skill but also, as you can imagine, very useful in dealing with fear, anxiety and too much arousal about performance goals in general.
