Visualize Your Way to Success

Is it possible to visualize your way to success and improve performance? Well here is a story that might convince you.

Champions Visualize

As told by TIME magazine a couple days prior before the (1984) finals in women’s gymnastics. Mary Lou Retton, was lying in bed mentally rehearsing. She had a great deal of faith in mental preparation, and the use of affirmations. She had performed the same mental exercise thousands of times.
 Day after day, she  pictured herself performing in the most perfect way. What happened soon after that? A performance of grace, charisma, and confidence. Sealing the sixteen year old’s legacy as an Olympic gold medalist. Basketball players especially should practice the skill of visualization before competition.

It allows you to get in reps without physically having to do them. Why? Because your inner mind can’t tell whether something is real or imagined.
 Think about the times you had dreams.  The  picture that you were imagining, sometimes seemed as real as if you were actually awake?

Olympic Experiment

I am sure many of you have seen a dog kick or even growl while asleep. We do the same activity when we visualize. In fact at the U.S. Olympic training center, many athletes participated in the experiment. The scientists monitored their brain activity. Quickly following they actually performed the same activities they visualized.
  It turns out they were demonstrating the same brain activity, whether they imagined it or they were physically playing. The same neurons fired! Isn’t that amazing?!The biggest road block to us doing this activity is believing that we’re not visual. This activity is a skill that comes through practice. Everyone can improve. Lets practice…

Practice Makes Permanent

Try closing your eyes, can you visualize your car? What color is it? Where is it located? How many windows are in your room? I want to show that EVERYONE can visualize. Give yourself freedom to explore. Now sense, feel, and imagine the perfect jump shot…
This is a simple yet powerful technique, to learn more in depth techniques. Email or Contact me I would love to hear from you.

“For me, winning isn’t something that just happens on the field when the whistle blows and the crowds roar. Winning is something that builds physically and mentally every day that you train and every night that you dream.” Emmit smith

“Imagination has a great deal to do with winning.” Mike Krzyzewski

‘’I visualized where I wanted to be, what kind of player I wanted to become. I knew exactly where I wanted to go, and I focused on getting there.” — Michael Jordan

Formula to Experience More Mental Toughness During Competition

The goal of mental toughness training is to be able to generate feelings of confidence on command. This confident state should be experienced during practice and competition.

I have come down to a simple definition of what mental toughness is. Focused,confident, determined, and resilient ESPECIALLY under pressure. A big road block to being relentless is working extremely hard to improve your skills. But after you have worked hard, you fail because of  anxiety related to sports. As an athlete, I have experienced this myself. Working night and day to improve my skills, but at times not being able to demonstrate my full potential.

I have found something after 23 years of playing at a high level in sports, and studying endlessly. Its that mental training is the culmination of all the hard work an individual puts in. Having mental readiness primes an individual to play great, so that they win even before they begin. It is a shame to have an athlete play their entire careers without having these fundamental tools. This can lead them to success in life, and in sports!

Let me take your son or daughter through a proven systematic process that will empower them to take control of their circumstances.
