The best way to shift yourself out of patterns of self sabotage is to take on a new programme in your life. That is, the way you stand, the way you move think and shape yourself needs to be different in a whole new way. Identify a focus point that supports and helps what you want and helps create that powerful new image, and then use new language to assist that imagery.
First think about the old methods of training, what overwhelms you, frustrates you, what delays you or holds you up. Take a moment to think about your physiology just planning the next session, you may notice your breathing pattern is shallow; your shoulders round forward and head drops forward your legs may seem heavy and tired almost stuck in mud. Your focus may be on not knowing what to do next. Your internal language of doubt and external language of negativity often reflex’s your self- belief. This can drain your power away.
If you catch yourself doing this stop and think about this pattern of disempowerment. Confidence in your abilities and self-belief are so powerful it takes away 60% of the training work if you have these tools on your side. Think of a race or training session when you knew exactly what to do what your body needed and what sessions and movements followed each other. Think of that perfect performance think of that memory and right away you take on a new body frame your whole physiology changes to take that positive performance frame. Your shoulders rise, your chest lifts as does your head and your breathing quickens with excitement and happiness at your confident, successful performance. You moved with ease and wisdom it was a great feeling, a great day, so keep it in mind, keep these achievements and successes in your thoughts and do not allow your mind to dwell on inadequacies and failures.
What we focus on will expand, therefore keep focusing on positives and better results will follow.
To create energy, excitement and enthusiasm in training use the right language in your thoughts. Practice positive thinking about training sessions and races. Think how great and satisfied you will be after the session, how nice it is to get a shower after sweating and training perhaps even in the rain, turn negatives like hard winds in training to mean you will be stronger when there is no wind. Visualise your opposition struggling with the same problems of weather, time, facilities and you having no problem deciding to make do with what you have, by adapting the session rather than giving up.
There are two things you can do blame or take responsibility. You can blame the weather, work, family, finances, or any circumstance you want for the lack of outcome. These are all external conditions that you cannot control but you can control how you respond to them. You can take responsibility of your life you can change yourself. To achieve success in life and in competition this will take 100% responsibility of everything in your life including what you eat and drink, how much rest you get, what training and preparation you do for each event , the how, when and where.
99% of people fail due to excuses, blaming and complaining. Eliminate them all. Take the blame for the past mistakes and accept new thoughts, create new feelings and CHANGE.
