I train myself mentally with visualization. The morning of a tournament, before I put my feet on the floor, I visualize myself making perfect runs with emphasis on technique, all the way through to what my personal best is in practice.... The more you work with this type of visualization, especially when you do it on a day-to-day basis, you'll actually begin to feel your muscles contracting at the appropriate times.

To put away aimlessness and weakness, and to begin to think with
purpose, is to enter the ranks of those strong ones who only recognize
failure as one of the pathways to attainment; who make all conditions
serve them, and who think strongly, attempt fearlessly, and accomplish
masterfully.

prosperous being; and happiness, health, and prosperity are the result of
a harmonious adjustment of the inner with the outer of the man with his
surroundings.

Mind is the Master-power that molds and makes, and Man is Mind, and
evermore he takes the Tool of Thought, and shaping what he wills, brings
forth a thousand joys, a thousand ills-He thinks in secret and it comes to
pass; Environment is but his looking-glass. As A Man Thinketh

You can clutch the past so tightly to your chest that it leaves your
arms too full to embrace the present.

In Inspirational Quotes
What was once impossible now summons us to dismantle the walls between
ourselves and our sisters and brothers, to dissolve the distinctions
between flesh and spirit, to transcend the present limits of time and
matter, to find, at last, not wealth or power but the ecstasy (so long
forgotten) of commonplace, unconditional being. For the atom's soul is
nothing but energy. Spirit blazes in the dullest of clay. The life of
every woman or man-the heart of it-is pure and holy joy.

the more it begins to come together and make sense.

For a nation which has an almost evil reputation for bustle, bustle, bustle, and rush, rush, rush, we spend an enormous amount of time standing around in line in front of windows, just waiting.

Man is made or unmade by himself. By the right choice he ascends. As a
being of power, intelligence, and love, and the lord of his own thoughts,
he holds the key to every situation.

In Inspirational Quotes
Cherish your visions; cherish your ideals; cherish the music that stirs
in your heart, the beauty that forms in your mind, the loveliness that
drapes your purest thoughts, for out of them will grow delightful
conditions, all heavenly environment; of these if you but remain true to
them, your world will at last be built.

He who would accomplish little must sacrifice little; he who would
achieve much must sacrifice much; he who would attain highly must
sacrifice greatly.

In Inspirational Quotes
A man should conceive of a legitimate purpose in his heart, and set out
to accomplish it. He should make this purpose the centralizing point of
his thoughts. It may take the form of a spiritual ideal, or it may be a
worldly object, according to his nature at the time being; but whichever
it is, he should steadily focus his thought forces upon the object which
he has set before him. He should make this purpose his supreme duty, and
should devote himself to its attainment, not allowing his thoughts to
wander away into ephemeral fancies, longings, and imaginings. This is the
royal road to self- control and true concentration of thought. Even if he
fails again and again to accomplish his purpose (as he necessarily must
until weakness is overcome), the strength of character gained will be the
measure of his true success, and this will form a new starting point for
future power and triumph.

Hard work without talent is a shame, but talent without hard work is a
tragedy.

In Inspirational Quotes
If we would only testify to the truth as we see it, it would turn out
that there are hundreds, thousands, even millions of other people just as
we are, who see the truth as we do...and are only waiting, again as we
are, for someone to proclaim it. The Kingdom of God is within you.
