Have the Mindset of an Olympian
When I’m watching the 2016 Olympics, I find it exciting and fascinating when someone breaks the world record. So today I want to talk about the mindset of an Olympian and how we can have the same mindset in our live to break our own records.
How do these athletes keep breaking records? How do they keep destroying records when many people thought it cannot be broken?
There was a paradigm or view point in the 50’s where everybody figured out that the human body cannot run a mile under 4 minutes because no one had ever done it. It was a perspective, point of view or idea. And when we take that idea and make it a fact, that’s when it runs everything.
There was one man that didn’t believe it. He was the first person that didn’t believe it. So of course he broke that record. So once he broke the record, many people broke it after him. In the next 2 months, 2 people broke that record. Their training or diet didn’t change. What changed? It was their perspective. Their belief changed. Their belief that it is possible and it can be done.
Once our mind goes to it can be done, our body will perform. But the mind has to shift.
So what do you think got each athlete in the Olympics to where they are today? Is it their body? Is it their training process? No. What’s different with Hussein Bolt? It’s the way they think. It’s what they believe.
These records Hussein Bolt keeps breaking, how far is it going to go?
The only limitation we have is our thinking. If their thinking keeps up and they believe they can, that’s the first thing.
If you look at the Olympics from that perspective, and you look at the ones breaking the records, it is all about where their minds are at that moment.
Let’s take that idea into our life. Into breaking through. About taking our life to the next level. Our finances, our health, our energy,our relationships, our goals, Isn’t it the same thing?
The only reason that we don’t accomplish something is because we don’t believe it. And if we don’t believe it before we go for it, you know what will happen. You will not accomplish it, even if you have everything it takes to succeed. It won’t work if your mentality doesn’t shift.
If you want more in your life, then I ask you…when is the last time you really challenged your perspective? Questioned what you think?
People go out there and attempt to DO things differently. But then they aren’t producing the results. And it can be a struggle.
So take a look at what you are doing right now, and what you think and believe. And challenge it. Something that most people will not do.
If you challenge it and you really question why do I believe this? Where did I get this belief from? What you will do is you will shift it.
Be an Olympian in your life. Are you breaking records for yourself? Take a look at what you believe, and I challenge you to challenge your perspective.
