What do the most successful athletes do that others do not do? Do they REALLY have super human abilities? The secret to their success is found in something that every person has the ability to access!
If you are reading this, either you desire to be a successful athlete or have a child who dreams of becoming an amazing athlete. You may wonder if success if just based on skill or if there are secrets that only great athletes know. Just talk to any good coach and you’ll learn that, though skill is important, it’s not the main thing. There are a couple of things that great athletes possess that good athletes don’t:
* Desire and determination are keys to your success in athletics. Michael Jordan didnÕt just want to become a good basketball player; rather he wanted to become the best basketball player. Just ask any high school basketball team what their goal is. They don’t just want to play good or win the game. They want to be the state champion! Knowing your goal is the first step.
* Successful athletes envision their success before it happens. If you watched the Winter Olympics, you saw great concentration on the face of the athletes before their event. Most likely, they were reviewing how their event would go. They envisioned making every jump and turn and being first. Every successful athlete sees their success before basketball lessons it happens. Every time Michael Jordan got up to the free throw line, he envisioned the ball going in. He practiced more than anyone else. But not only did he practice his skill of putting the ball through the hoop; but mentally he saw himself making the basket every time. You must see it happening before it happens. You may recall the story of a sailing team from a couple of years ago who won the America’s cup. When the television reporter asked the team if they were surprised that they won, their answer was “No. We saw us winning every day”. Their coach had them watch a video daily that envisioned them winning. The mind is a powerful thing.
* Next, successful athletes claim their success before it happens. If you have the chance to listen to successful athletes, you will hear that their words match their goals. Examples may include, “I’m going to make this shot, I’m going to beat my time, or, I’m going to finish in the top 3″. The words “if” and “maybe” are not in their vocabulary.
* And lastly, great athletes practice, practice, and practice. During their practice they give it their all. Great athletes don’t give just 80%; rather, they give 110% effort. So when it’s game time, they are ready to give it everything they got.
So now you know the secrets it takes to be a successful athlete. Desire it, believe it, see it happening, and do what it takes to make it happen. Henry Ford is quoted as saying “if you think you can or you think you can’t, in either case you’re right”. This may serve you well to remember this the next time you compete in your sport.
