The Inner Game Of Attitude
We've all heard time and again that "Attitude is everything".
In this life we're all playing a mental game and a physical
game. The mental game consists of the thoughts and feelings
that we have, our attitudes and beliefs. The physical game
is the obvious game that we all see. It's the work we do,
the actions we take and the way we present ourselves to the
world. The physical game is the game we show the world, but
the mental game is the most important facet of our successes.
The people who succeed in this life are the people who know
that they can and that they will. Take a look at your favorite
athlete. The ones that win the game are the ones that have
that unshakeable belief that they will win. Call it confidence,
call it arrogance but the athletes with the winning edge all
have that attitude. They have their inner mental game down
and it's as practiced as their physical game, even though
some may do it unconsciously.
When you approach your task with unstoppable confidence, unshakeable
beliefs and unflinching determination to succeed that is exactly
what you do. You succeed.
When you approach your task with doubt, misgivings and ambiguity,
that is exactly what you create -- doubt, misgivings, and
ambiguity -- but definitely not success. If we are to find
the success we are looking for we must attend to our mental
game. We must develop the unstoppable confidence, unshakeable
beliefs and unflinching determination that can and will give
us the winning edge.
So how do you go about creating this winning mental game?
You need to study success.
Learn all that you can about your endeavors. Knowing all of
the ins and outs of your game can do wonders for your confidence.
You need to set goals. Having a target to shoot for keeps
you going when times are not easy.
And you need to find some way to develop the thoughts and
beliefs that you will need. Affirmations can help with this
but only if you put emotions into your affirmations. When
you are working with affirmations repetition is necessary
too. You can't just say it once or twice and expect it to
sink into your subconscious mind. A good affirmation bears
repeating again and again and again.
And this one is really big -- Visualize. See your success
in your mind's eye. See it, hear it, smell it, touch it and
taste it. In other words, engage your senses in your imagination
as you visualize. The more senses you engage the more real
it becomes. The more real it becomes the closer it is to manifesting
in your real life. So daydream. Visualize. Imagine your success
down to the most intricate detail. This is your creation.
This is your manifestation. This is your Success. Get your
Inner Game of Attitude down and you will come out a winner.
