Late last night I was out for a walk – only this time
not by myself. As I headed out the door with a friend
I began telling him how the average person is completely
unconscious of his day-to-day habits and thinking,
and therefore is unable to recreate success over and
“What do you mean?” he asked.
“Well, this may sound odd, but when a major celebrity
agrees to an appearance, there is often a lengthy contract
that goes into illustrious detail about what he or she wants
the hotel room to be like. It’ll state what kind of bed, what
kind of robes, what kind of soap, water, and so on.”
“And this may seem very odd and strange to the average
person. He might think, ‘What a primadonna.’ But the major
celeb may be making all these requests because he knows, in
illustrious detail, what creates a success experience. He also
knows, if he’s been paying attention, what creates a failure
“Take myself, for example. One of the things I figured out
as a competitive martial artist and wrestler was that I needed
to get up early and go for a run on the days that I competed in
a tournament. I came to this conclusion after competing in a
number of tournaments wherein my first match was abominable.
I felt like I was still asleep during the match. After losing I figured out
that some early morning running would open my lungs and get my
entire mind/body ready for battle – I never forgot to employ this
“No one else on the team that I’m aware of did this. For whatever
reason they didn’t need to. But I did. And failure to follow what works
always spelled dis-aster for me. On the other hand, when I did the things I
did when I was at my best, I got into a “success groove” and it seemed
I could not fail.”
Whether in sports, business or any creative endeavor – this same scenario
applies. If you keep track of what you did and what you thought on the days
you were at your best, and if you keep repeating those things, you increase your
chances for success dramatically.
So keep track of what works – as well as what doesn’t work. Repeat what works.
Discontinue what doesn’t work.
A simple formula, I know. But it won’t do you any good unless you start to become
conscious of your thoughts, behaviors and the results they produce.
