COMPETING AT YOUR BEST
The pressure of competition is tough. Athletes have to cope with all sorts of things in addition to the performance itself. There is dealing with distractions, managing anxiety, being aware of your own thoughts – negative and positive, learn from mistakes, letting others down, winning. When you condition your mind to control these situations, you will perform at the top of your game.
Whenever we aim to realise greatness, wether in Sport, Arts, Business or Life itself, we face great difficulties.
These external adversities, most of the time, bear internal burdens in the form of fear, stress, lack of confidence and the like.
We all have experience at peak moments of our life, when we most need our external and inner resources, these inner thieves creep in and steal from us what was suppose to be our great moment.
Are you familiar with these situation or has this just happen to me?
At first, I experience them like great obstacles or major problems but through training my mind and my emotions, they have become my best friends.
I call them Thriving Opportunities.
ATHLETES MEDITATION COACHING
As Niels Henrik David Bohr, Nobel Prize in Physics said:
”Every great difficulty bears in itself its own solution.
It forces us to change our thinking in order to find it”.
To many times, I have being taught: “to beat the demons so that…”.
This is not working for me and I realise for any of us.
Because when we do this, we are still in a fighting mood.
OK, some of you will argues that you can achieve a lot in this mood.
Yes, it’s true.
But how much more can we achieve, when we are not fighting what comes in front of us but instead accept it, embrace it, learn and thrive from it.
Then we become the best version of ourselves and we can accomplish the Extraordinary.
