How reassured are you of your own capacity and potential and what do you say to yourself?
Check this quick story out from Lanny Basham
“You can imagine far more than you currently can achieve. If you consistently rehearse what you want to achieve, what you imagine can become reality. Let me give you an example. Back in the 1970s, I was shooting good kneeling scores and began approaching the national record of 396/400. I wanted to set the record at 400, a perfect score. But I had never actually fired a 400, even in training. Nonetheless, I vividly rehearsed shooting the first 100, then another and another. … Next, I rehearsed hearing a voice say, “That’s OK. I do this all the time.” Then I imagined shooting the final ten easily and saying to myself, “Another 400, that’s like me.”
Two keys there for us
“THAT’S OKAY, I DO THIS ALL THE TIME.”
‘THAT’S LIKE ME.”
Next time you hit a target no matter how small, try saying one of these two or both to yourself + repeat.
Towards your potential...'that's like you'.
You do this all the time.
