Do You Have the Mindsets of a Champion?

Oct 20, 2010

Is your mind in the game? When it comes to winning your mind is the master controller. When you're dieting your mind is what gives in to cheating or missing a cardio session. Your mind decides to push a little harder or to give up. Your mind is what makes you a winner. Here are 6 champions in very different fields and their thoughts on the mind: 

Dennis Lillee


"At the start of my career I would have said that performance was 70% physical and 30% mental. Now I would say that the reverse is true. You see the mind controls the body, when you get tired and give in, it's your mind which goes first.

Yuri Vlasov

"At the peak of tremendous and victorious effort, everything seems clearer and whiter than ever before, as if a great spotlight had been turned on…there is nothing in life more precious than this, the white moment, and you will work very hard for years just to taste it again."  

Jackie Stewart

"At 195 mph you should still have a very clear vision, almost in slow motion of going through that corner – so that you have the time to brake, time to line the car up, time to recognize the amount of drift…The driver who doesn't have the mental picture in advance will arrive at the corner to find that it all happened to quickly."

Jack Nicklaus

"I never hit a ball, not even in practice, without having a very sharp, in-focus picture of it in my head."

Roger Bannister

"There was no pain, only a great unity of movement and aim"

Arnold Schwarzenegger

“The mind is the limit. As long as the mind can envision the fact that you can do something, you can do it, as long as you really believe 100 percent.” 

So there you have it, from the top. Envision your success, believe in yourself, aim and go for the white light!
