How do you prepare your mind for competition?
Our mind is equally as important as our bodies to be ready for competition. Last week, I gave you a few tips to keep your mind sharp while preparing for battle. This week, I continue that trend and give you a few more. Make sure to pick out at least one and execute it the next time you find yourself in preparation for competition. Enjoy.
- Meditation can be a very powerful tool for your mind to relax. You can listen to music, motivational speakers, or nothing at all. You must be relaxed prior to competition. This will also help you to think positive thoughts, as opposed to being stressed out and worrying about the worst possible outcome. How do you prefer to relax?
- Sit quietly. Especially in today’s world with all the unnecessary noise, you must find time to simply sit peacefully by yourself with your own thoughts and your own voice. This is a great way to control your own mind and not let anyone else contaminate it with negativity. A common way to grow your mind while sitting quietly is to mindstorm ways to accomplish your biggest goal you seek to accomplish. I challenge you to write down TEN way you can accomplish your most desired goal. Will you execute?
Summer is here and many of us now have a little more free time on our hands. Make use of this free time and grow your mind. As we make our way through 2016, I want you to ask yourself “How am I making the most of my life?” This question will drive you to accomplish great things throughout your life. Have a great week, everyone!
