What Bowling and Success Have In Common
I was flying home from a seminar in Atlanta yesterday afternoon on Delta and they have TVs on each seat.
It was 1pm and I was a bit tired, so I was channel surfing and wouldn't have minded if I just fell asleep for the trip.
But as I was surfing, I came across ESPN, the sports network, and they were having the finals of a bowling tournament.
I'm not a huge bowling fan, I do try to 'hit the lanes' once or twice a year, but I caught the end of an interview with one of the bowlers and it got my attention.
He was talking about how important staying focused and having a positive attitude is, but then he said something that I know to be so helpful.
I call them, S.R.P.'s.
S.R.P. stands for 'Success Reference Points.'
Here's what he said:
He said that he thinks about a time in the past when he was bowling and 'on fire', and he was doing great.
He puts himself back in that mindset.
What was he saying to himself?
How was he standing, how was his posture?
He even watched old bowling videos of him doing great.
We all have moments in our past that we can REMEMBER and use in the PRESENT.
In Arnold Schwarzenegger's biography, he talks about using this same principle to quickly help him succeed.
When was there a time in my life when I was doing GREAT, when I felt UNSTOPPABLE? What were my habits, what was my self-talk, how was I feeling? Then TAKE THAT mindset into the present....
Be on top of your game.
This bowler I was watching, with the help of this strategy, won his first ever major bowling tournament and $100,000.
At any moment, we can choose to be strong or weak, we can c hoose to remember a negative moment or a positive one.
