Being a former entrepreneur and athlete, I generally end up serving as a life coach for my neighbors and friends. It is always fun to find people improving and becoming better versions of the individuals that they actually are. It is always amazing to see the mental challenges that people go through and the success that they achieve in the long run. I agree with the fact that it is only because of the optimal and strong mindset that people have, it becomes very easy for them to grab success in almost any field of work and life. It is considerably worse for our society but I have come across people who have literally given up on life. This was only because of the stress and the trauma that they were going through. These people stopped thinking and did not have that inner will needed for chasing dreams and succeeding in life. This led to nothing but only defeat.
So, how does this happen? I put some thought into it. I even had discussions with people and after everything was over, I pondered on this subject. After a lot of thinking, I realized that it was important for me to be a little empathetic towards others and towards their plight. Recently, in a discussion that I had with one of my friends, I tried explaining to him that I am looking forward to grasping the concept of being empathetic towards others; however, I am not being able to do so. I further said that may be because I do not have an optimal mindset on grasping the concept, I am not being able to take over it.
In sports, it is very important for the ones involved to have the right mindset aimed towards achieving ones goals or objectives. Previously, it appeared to me that almost any individual could do this, but it was only later that I realized that there are very few who can actually do this. There are people who have the right skills and mindset geared towards achieving success in sports while there are others who do not like to try and therefore come face to face with failure.
In my previous discussions when starting my career as an athlete, I thought that I had certain mental barriers to achieving success. Maybe I myself was achieving only a fraction of what I actually possessed as a person. Here, I am talking about my capabilities in sports. I thought that I was not being able to put in my best efforts in getting out the talent that I had within me and this was the reason I was not achieving success. It was only later when I was guided by a sports coach that I understood that an optimal mindset was very important for achieving success in the sports field. Seasoned athletes and champions should be strong enough, both physically and mentally, to take their talents to some record-breaking accomplishments and even beyond human competition.
I worked hard both mentally and physically into becoming a successful athlete and I continued to leverage my skills in the right direction. It was only after putting in great efforts that my psychologist and my coach told me that I was doing excellent but I could be even better. If you are looking forward to achieving success in sports then you need to think on this.
