Welcome everyone...prior to the start of the Olympics, I stated that the winners would share a common trait. Mental Toughness. That was the prevailing trait. In swimming, le Close was shadow boxing right in front of Phelps, trying intimidate no avail. Phelps beat le Close by over a second and went on to win another gold medal. All the winners, both the women's and men's events, the mental games prevailed. The athletes spend hours in mental paid off.  Next week, Avoiding injuries.

1st to the FINISH LINE...

Welcome everyone...the IMPACT that you make is in direct proportion to your own self image. The who am I, what am I all about. "How do we reach and define that inner me?" Start by removing the self imposed obstacles. 1) Worry 2) you don't like change. 3) Indecision 4) Adversity 5) Fear...Robert Frost, "the people I am most afraid of are the people who are scared." The road to success will always be under construction. I...image, self image. M...maturity. P...purpose in life. A...attitude. C...courage. T...touch, the human touch, When you change the way you look at things, you change the way things look, the things you look at change. First to the Finish Line...where Winners and Survivors Always Meet.

Welcome everyone...Cindy Thrasher, 19, has won gold in the air rifle event in Rio. She also won that event, NCAA, as a freshman in college. She believes in Visualization and gives credit to that practice. The elite athletes all possess about the same skill and talent. So, what separates the elite from winners and those who fail. Visualization, imagery, mind pictures. Your mind becomes your personal camera and takes a picture of every detail. Fall asleep using visualization. And when you are sleeping your mind is still actively working. Now, we have documentation that those who practice visualization increase performance by as much a 35 %. When you can visualize, feel your self begin to act and behave as though you were already there. Repetition, practice, is the key. The Olympics in Rio will provide us with the value of the mental game.

9th Wonder of the World

Welcome everyone...I have asked this question for several years... "why is it that people with less, accomplish more than "normal" people?" What ever one accepts, that becomes their norm. Fate is what life gives you, destiny is what you do with it. Adding to my Hero Hall...the family of Hamuyam Kahn, Father Jacques, pastor
from France and Tai Sheppard, age 11, Brook Sheppard, age 8 and Rainn Shepard, age 10. Homeless. Just qualified for Junior Olympics. They have added to the meaning of life. There are times when words are not important or meaningful.
Have a meaningful life everyone...Jimmy O
