I was looking through some old files this weekend and came across something that I used to recite daily after I read, "Think and Grow Rich" by Napoleon Hill.
The subconscious mind, is the chemical laboratory in which all thought impulses are combined, and made ready for translation into physical reality, and makes no distinction between constructive and destructive thought impulses. It works with the material we feed it, through our thought impulses. The subconscious mind will translate into reality a thought driven by FEAR just as readily as it will translate into reality a thought driven by COURAGE, or FAITH.
Train your brain and self confidence just like you do with your body. The stronger your brain gets the more potential you physically get.
Remember when we talk about your Self WOD talk.
What do you say to yourself during the 3 round of a throttle fest WOD?
What about right before you are about to attempt a weight you have tried yet?
I know if I train my brain better then you train your brain...I WILL WIN!
Here you go...You it and abuse it!.
The Self Confidence Formula:
First – I know that I have the ability to achieve the objective of my Definite Purpose in life therefore, I DEMAND of myself persistent, continuous action towards its attainment and I here and now promise to render such action.
Second – I realize the dominating thoughts of my mind will eventually reproduce themselves in outward, physical action and gradually transform themselves into physical reality, therefore; I will concentrate my thoughts for thirty minutes daily, upon the task of thinking of the person I intend to become, thereby creating in my mind a clear mental picture of that person.
Third – I know through the principle of auto-suggestion, any desire that I persistently hold in my mind will eventually seek expression through some practical means of attaining the object of it, therefore, I will devote ten minutes daily to demanding of myself the development of SELF-CONFIDENCE.
Fourth – I have clearly written down a description of my DEFINITE CHIEF AIM in life and I will never stop trying until I shall have developed sufficient self-confidence for its attainment.
Fifth – I fully realize that no wealth or position can long endure, unless built upon truth and justice therefore, I will engage in no transaction which does not benefit all whom it affects. I will succeed by attracting to myself the forces I wish to use and the cooperation of other people. I will induce others to serve me, because of my willingness to serve others. I will eliminate hatred, envy, jealousy, selfishness, and cynicism, by developing love for all humanity because I know that a negative attitude toward others can never bring me success. I will cause others to believe in me because I will believe in them and in myself.
I will sign my name to this formula, commit it to memory, and repeat it aloud once a day with full FAITH that it will gradually influence my THOUGHT AND ACTIONS so that I will become a self-reliant and successful person.
