“Athletes and Olympians know training and conditioning isn’t anything anyone wants to always do. It can be cold and rainy. The champion can be sore and tired but they condition and train anyway. Training can be grueling but the champion commits to doing it.
Muhammad Ali said ‘I hated every minute of training, but I said, don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.’ He persevered in the present. He did whatever it took because he knew it mattered tomorrow. Our commitment and habits are important.
It’s the daily habits that keep us going when we don’t feel we want to. It is the habit of doing! It is the mental habit of doing it anyway. Athletes train and condition their minds, and their will so when they ‘don’t feel like it’ they do it anyway. It works because of their habits.
If Your Dreams Don’t Scare You They Aren’t Big Enough
That is the power of habit and conditioning. Ali further stated, ‘It is the repetition of affirmations that leads to belief. Once that belief becomes a deep conviction things begin to happen.’ Napoleon Hill said the same things many years earlier. As did ancient mystics.
For centuries people have known and shared what works. Many come across it. Many hear it. Few apply it. Your negative conditioning doesn’t take a break because you don’t feel like it. So develop positive habits and keep going. Condition; train yourself.
Constant and consistent daily repetition of positive thoughts, feelings and actions is practice. It is rehearsal. When you practice correctly long enough you get good. Practice the winner attitude as Ali and others have and you can actually master it. It works!
To Be A Champion You Must believe You Are The Best
Create habits that serve you in your pursuits. Create supportive habits that help you to be happier, be healthier, make more money, get along with others better and enjoy all of life that much more. Practice the gratitude habit. Commit. Condition yourself.
Once you do, you will significantly improve your life. You will overcome blocks and limiting beliefs and un-supportive habits. You will explode your ability to manifest and create positive experiences. You will manufacture more abundance. You’ll be happier. Learn to do this right now. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes
