Steve Siebold describes in his book -“177 Mental Toughness Secrets of the World Class” -how he wanted to be a tennis champion.
He had all the talent and the desire necessary but at times he lacked the belief that he was a potential champion.
He writes:”When I believed I was a champion, I trained like a champion.
When he was only ten years old, he defeated nearly everyone he played and, as a result, was thinking like a champion. He expected to win and so he trained and worked hard as winners should.
As he grew older his rankings started to drop and he no longer expected to win and so he started training like a loser instead of a winner.
He still had the desire to be a champion but so do lots of people. He believes that what made the difference was his belief in himself or his lack of it.
Once we realise that this ceiling is only a figment of the imagination of ourselves and our so-called ‘friends’, we will be able to break through our limitations and achieve world class results which will astonish us.
We need to re-examine our beliefs about ourselves and to realise that many of them originated in the beliefs of people who thought that great results were only for the few and that our dreams were just ‘pie in the sky’.
Instead of listening to the naysayers (those who are not even aware of the possibility that they could be champions), start listening to the world class. Replace negative beliefs about yourselves with empowering ones and then start working hard to achieve your dreams.
You don’t need a degree in psychology to do all this. Get a free copy of my “7 Secrets of Success Blueprint” and start from there.
You may or may not have access to world class neighbours or friends but you do have easy access to world class writers and thinkers through the media of books, audios and video tapes. The internet has, of course, widened that access exponentially.
It is high time you joined the world class and made the most of your God given championship potential, which is in us all :-).
And whatever you do, do yourself a favour, ask for God’s help!
