When training, concentration with 100 percent focus is crucial to reach greater intensity levels. The first step is to really believe that becoming stronger and faster is possible. In the same way you can command your body to push further when everything else suggests that you cannot, so you can mentally coax your body to train harder and with more intensity.
Athletes are masters of mind power or at least they should be if they want to be exceptionally focused. Athletes are always battling various fears at different levels and when they master the power of their mind they begin to enjoy greater success.
Confidence is the main challenge.You may think that professional athletes are always confident. But just like anybody else, they have times when they are not confident. This is another battle that they have to work with in their mind. Just because they’re professional athletes doesn’t mean that their mind doesn’t play tricks on them or that at times they don’t have as much confidence as they would like.
Then there’s fear – fear of losing and fear of success or not winning are real fears that athletes have to face and overcome. By working with the power of their mind they can overcome any and all fears, just like anybody else can. But you’d be surprised at how often these fears lead to their demise or reduce their success.
So how do they get the power of their mind to remove the fear?
Athletes need to focus on winning. Their focus should be on doing everything they can to win. That means tuning out any spectators, any fears, and even their opponent. This is what allows a professional to be successful and what compels so many to stay in the ranks of being an amateur.
Professional athletes have their mind focused on doing everything they can to win. This is what gives them real power.
Mind power is the ability to harness and direct the power of your mind so that you push the subconscious to help you create the outcomes that you want.
Before any event, an athlete needs to move the focus of their mind to only the challenge ahead. Energy should not be wasted on the audience, their outfits or even their opponent. To apply mind powers during any competition the athlete need only focus on winning and doing what they can to win. Victory celebrations should be saved for after the competition.
When athletes get distracted they tend to struggle. That’s why so many athletes will take time off when they lose a loved one or suffer an emotional setback. They understand that they’re not focused on their sport and that they may be distracted. These distractions impede their ability to apply mind power correctly or to apply the power of their mind to win their next competition.
So if you’re an athlete get focused on being the master of your sport. Apply the power of your mind to help you stay focused on your competition and your ability. Sure there will be fears and there will be distractions. But when these come up you need to focus your mind to help you succeed and again, focus on your ability.
