What makes super achievers so successful?
Why on earth are some of us monstrously successful… while others barely make ends meet? What makes the difference?
I’ve done some research on the web, and it turns out, all these success giants have one thing in common. The key skill that separates the super achievers from the rest of the world is…
Mental Rehearsal – Being able to create meticulously detailed mental blueprints of your “Dream Performance.”
Create a success draft in your mind, rehearse all possible facets and inject emotions. Next, you keep rehearsing until mental reality transitions into physical reality.
But see for yourself how visualization can impact your life:
How to succeed in bodybuilding (or acting, or…) – Arnold Schwarzenegger has achieved monstrous success through visualization.
“It’s the only way to get ahead. If you have a very clear vision of where you want to go and if you’re willing to put the work in no matter what it takes, you get then to turn this vision into reality. We can accomplish anything you want.”
“Create a vision of who you want to be and then live this vision as if it were already true.”
How to succeed in golf – Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods, Arnold Palmer, essentially all pro golfers are ‘pro-visualizers’. In fact, visualization is defined as being the key skill in golf which separates the better players from the ones that don’t play as well.
