Top 10 Tips Of Olympic Gold Medal Thinking For Your Home Based Business

The top 10 tips of Olympic Champions thinking that can be applied to your home based business are:

1. POWER IMAGERY:
Use positive mental images throughout your day to create feelings of confidence and power.

For example, if you're presenting your business or products and run into a difficult customer, visualize yourself having all the resources you need to get the results you want.

2. POSITIVE ATTITUDE:
Use everything in your day to your advantage.

For example, if you are rejected by a client or lose a sale, ask yourself, what can I learn from this? What is working? How can I use this to move forward with my next client?

3. MINDFULNESS:
Practice being in the present moment.

Remind yourself to stay in the here and now. Let past and future events fade into the background.

4. SHORT-TERM GOALS:
Focus on your immediate target.

Break your goals down into small, manageable pieces and begin to focus only on the first portion, not the entire goal.

For example, say to yourself: "I'm just relaxing and getting into my rhythm during the presentation".

5. ASSOCIATION:
Pay close attention to your body tension level. Do a body scan and relax your tight muscles frequently.

Ask yourself: "Are my shoulders and neck relaxed; how does this work pace feel; how is my energy level? What do I need right now to perform better?"

6. MANAGE ANXIETY:
Realize that nervousness is your friend.

When you are about to begin a client meeting, just accept the fact that you're going to be nervous. This is a normal reaction before any important event.

You can make this feeling your ally rather than fighting with it. In fact, nervousness is a good sign that you're excited and ready to roll. Once the meeting begins, and you get underway, the nervousness will subside. You can just relax and enjoy the ride.

7. PROCESS NOT OUTCOME:
Learn to relax and focus, be fully present with what you're doing.

Look at what you need to do right now (e.g., breathing, relaxing, concentrating); the final outcome will take care of itself.

8. FOCUSED ATTENTION:
Be aware of distractions. Tune into what is critical to your performance and tune out what is not.

Breathe out unwanted thoughts with your next exhale and re-focus your attention on what is important.

9. AFFIRMATIONS:
Make positive self-statements continually.

Negative thinking is common; everyone has an inner critic. Become aware of these thoughts and then substitute a positive affirmation.

For example, when you're thinking: "I can't do this"; you can say to yourself: "I believe in myself; I radiate an inner confidence".

10. ENJOYMENT:
Celebrate your strengths. When you give a presentation, let your mind and body do what you've trained them to do. Remember that your goals are realistic. All you need to do is perform up to your capabilities.

Hope this is of help.

There are a lot of books and courses on personal training and coaching in the market which you can purchase to learn more in depth.
