Self Talk for Seeing the Reaching.
You communicate with yourself on an ongoing basis. Why not code your mind to think like a winner? People serious about winning visualize in their mind a successful outcome. Mental preparedness before attempting what you want to achieve. Professional athletes visualize the ball going throw the basket or the golfer sees the putt going in the hole. Undoubtedly, the most destructive force in our lives is the negative use of our imagination.
Most people visualize the things or outcomes they don’t want to happen. Losers think in terms of lack or loss. Many people say things like “its cold and flu season.” They pre program themselves to get sick. This is one of the reasons we have so many sick people. This is also why Martial Arts Advantage has a word of the week, to re enforce in our subconscious mind positive words and self talk. The old saying goes “whether you think you can or can’t you are right.”
Change how you communicate with yourself if it is negative or passive.
Here is some positive self talk: “Today I will think like a winner.” “Challenges make me smarter.” “I have courage.” “I have faith.”
