In his book “The Champion’s Mind”, sports psychologist Dr. Jim Afremow says that when it comes to the big occasions, great athletes don’t overthink things and can be still within themselves.
The automatic negative thoughts that often terrorise people don’t control great athletes. Great athletes control their mind, whereas most people’s minds control them.
Great sports people use thoughts when they want to.
Or as Zen would say, “Stillness is the Masters throne, and the unknown is the Masters home.”
Afremow goes on to say that the gold medal mind is one that has mastered the Seven C’s:
Your life is made up of two dates and a dash.
Make the most of the dash.
– What do you call a bulletproof Irish man?
– Talk is cheap unless you hire a lawyer.
– Meanwhile at the bar at the Xmas office party …..
Man: Will you kiss me under the mistletoe?
Woman: I wouldn’t even kiss you under general anaesthetic.
Live big & love deep.
