Words and thoughts that you use to express yourself paint an image of things to come. If a person thinks about and verbalizes themselves in a positive light they tend to be successful. The reverse holds true for negativity. Previous experiences and labels make us feel that this is who we are today. Take a moment to redefine negative perceptions and reemphasize a positive self-image. Use positive affirmations, visualizations and/or repeatedly writing a positive word about you as tools for success. Remember that everyone is a natural athlete in some way, shape or form.
