Interview with Randy Friedman, author of the book The Athletic Mindset - Three Tools for Success
It’s 99% your mind, I was a golf pro for 10 years and golf is 99% mental and 1% on top of that. It really is believing that you can hit the middle of the fairway versus thinking I hope I don’t slice the ball again into the woods - it is a thought first which becomes an action.
And Randy believes you’ll never achieve a goal if you don’t first write it down.
If you don’t write it down what you goal is, what you actually do want – whether it’s losing weight or getting a better job, or getting a better car whatever it is that you truly want in your heart – write that down. Post that everywhere that you can look at and remind yourself everyday “I want” – it’s called an affirmation. “I want to get better grades, I want to be on time, I want to make more money”. Write down what you want and then you’ll start believing it.
What so many of us do is convince ourselves we can’t.
Remember that, our minds are really powerful so whatever you tell yourself you’re going to believe and if you say, “I’m too old, I can’t do it anymore, I’m too this, I’m too that” – then the answer is you’re right. But if you believe you have a chance every time you get up to bat, to get on base, or to hit that homerun – you’re also right.
