Watching the Olympics and seeing the excellence of Gold winners like Michael Phelps there distinctly appears to be an Olympic level of subconscious mind power training. And even if you don’t compete in the Olympics and win a display case full of Gold medals there is nothing stopping you performing like an Olympian in every part of your life.

That winning mindset that is subconsciously programmed to win in whatever you do.

Dr JoAnn of Performing Edge Coaching said that there are Olympic mind power techniques for that Gold medal effect.

Profile of the Olympic Gold Medal Mindset

What are the key characteristics of well-motivated Olympic athletes? And how do we achieve them? Through my extensive work with numerous Olympians over several years, I have developed a constellation of traits that defines the champion’s mentality. Elite athletes do not possess superhuman powers or extraordinary qualifications limited to a selected few. The characteristics that make a champion can be attained and developed by ANYONE who wants to excel in sports, business or in life.

So here Dr JoAnn points to the fact that anyone can train themselves in the characteristics that can and will make you a champion in whatever you turn your attention to.

She lists 7 of these as a guide for developing them yourself.

Olympic subconscious mind power training

  1. Enthusiasm and Desire — Love for Your Sport: Olympic athletes have a hunger, a fire inside that fuels their passion to achieve an important goal, regardless of their level of talent or ability. To accomplish anything of value in life you need to begin with a vision or dream. The more clearly you can see that picture in your mind, the more likely it is to become reality. Wherever you place your attention, your energy will follow.

Now this enthusiasm is a deep felt aspect. There are certain daily routines that take as little as 5 minutes at a time that uncover and generate these qualities and vision very simply. But more on that soon.

2. Courage to Succeed: Once an Olympian has the desire, he or she needs to back it up with courage — the incentive to make any dream you dare to dream become reality. It takes courage to sacrifice, to work out when you’re tired, to seek out tough competition when you know you’ll probably lose. It takes courage to stick to your game plan and the relentless pursuit of your goal when you encounter obstacles. It takes courage to push yourself to places that you have never been before, physically or mentally, to test your limits, and to break through barriers.

So when courage is mustered are we subconsciously telling ourselves “this is doable”, “I can do this”?

3. Internal Motivation and Self-Direction: Champion athletes decide early on that they are training and competing for themselves — not for their parents, their coaches or for the medals. Direction and drive need to come from within. The goals must be ones that you have chosen because that’s exactly what you want to be doing. Ask yourself, what keeps you running? Who are you doing it for?

It’s true it comes from within. But what effect and message does it send your subconscious mind if you choose to go for it for yourself, rather than your parents dreams. Whose responsibility is it? If it is your own, does that mean that external factors steer you off course less? Do you stay on track and leap the last hurdle even if you get tripped along the way?

Is it a case that subconsciously you are not letting there to be a get out clause, no room for being a victim of circumstance?

4. Commitment to Excellence: How good do you want to be? Elite athletes know that to excel at their sport, they must decide to make it a priority in their life. They make an honest effort each day to be the best at what they do. At some point you must say, I want to be really good at this; I want this to work. To notice significant growth you must live this commitment and regularly stretch what you perceive to be your current limits.

Again commitment removes the victim from the scene so that your strength can be uncovered and let out. It surprising what we hold behind closed locker doors.

5. Discipline, Consistency, Organization: Winning athletes know how to self-energize and work hard on a daily basis. Because they love what they do it is easier for them to maintain consistency in training and in competing. Regardless of personal problems, fatigue or difficult circumstances, they can generate the optimal amount of excitement and energy to do their best.

Resistance becomes lessened the more regular we turn to what we want to do, the hurdles of self-defeating thoughts are leaped over more easily as time passes by.

6. Being Focused and Yet Relaxed: Champions have the ability to maintain concentration for long periods of time. They can tune in what’s critical to their performance and tune out what’s not. They can easily let go of distractions and take control of their attention.

Distraction and calls for the minds attention spring up all over the place and when we pander to them and jump from one to another we tell ourselves subconsciously that what we were working on is not that important so it does not matter, even when it does. Practice, practice followed by more practice informs our subconscious mind that this is important, this race is worth winning.

7. Ability to Handle Adversity: Olympic athletes know how to deal with difficult situations. Adversity builds character. When elite athletes know the odds are against them, they embrace the chance to explore the outer limits of their potential. Rather than avoiding pressure they feel challenged by it. They are calm and relaxed under fire. Setbacks become an opportunity for learning; they open the way for deep personal growth.

How many times does that voice and feeling arise to go and hide, and each time hesitation is entertained this voice gets stronger and more powerful, subconsciously sabotaging us along the way. Facing up to the challenges and relishing in the challenges subconsciously empowers us to keep going no matter what.

If you develop these Olympic subconscious mind power trainings and practice them daily you will find yourself excelling in not just in sports but personally and professionally too.

We all start at different starting points physically and mentally, so when you choose to develop your own Olympic mindset and make the most of the talents you have, stretching the limits of your abilities, physically and psychologically you will naturally start to see changes happening.

Personal growth and enjoyment will arise in all you do. And this subconscious mind power training when done everyday will turn into your very own Gold medal ceremony that doesn’t just inspire yourself but the people you come in contact with too.
