Slide 3: Sports have always been a big part of my life. I grew up being involved with everything from softball, basketball, volleyball, and even golf. There is not a better feeling than being a part of a team and working with other people to reach one goal: Slide 4: Win! Slide 5: Now that I have grown up, the availability of sports teams to be apart of has diminished, but my love for playing the game and thelessons I learned will stick with me the rest of my life. Slide 6: This past week I was thinking back over my glory days of being MVP ormaking All-Tournament Team to those days it was just fun to get outthere and play! Slide 7: However, through my reflection back on playing sports, Inoticed all the lessons I learned that prepared me for success inlife. It was these lessons that allowed me to get where I am today. Slide 8: After pondering these lessons for a little while, I came up the top 5success strategies that I learned from sports that can help youachieve your goals in life whether that is for business success orweight loss success or success with just plain living a healthy life. Slide 9: #1: Planning is First First, anyone who has ever been successful has had to plan. In basketball we would plan by coming up with plays and various strategies that would allow us to beat our opponents. Slide 10: In dance or gymnastics there was always a routine to plan. Slide 11: Softball planning didn’t necessarily include plays or routines, but it did take strategic planning for the pitchers and what type of pitch they would throw in certain situations in order to be effective with their job. Slide 12: Planning isn’t just limited to plays or routines or pitching lineups, but also involves having the right gear, the top players, and time to practice. Slide 13: Planning also requires setting goals and determining a plan of action for the team which usually revolved around being at practices and games, giving 100%, proper behavior, etc. Slide 14: Without the goals understood by all involved, it would make for lots of confusion when it came time to execute the plan. No one would know what needed to be done in order for the team to succeed. There is no direction. For any time of success, there must be direction! Slide 15: #2: Picture Your Success The importance of visualization in sports can sometimes be overlooked. It usually is not the first thing one thinks of when determining how to be successful. Slide 16: However, in basketball what will every player tell you about the key to shooting and making the perfect shot? They will say you visualize the motions in your head of how to execute effectively and so when you do get the ball, your body knows exactly what to do to make that winning basketball shot! Slide 17: Imagine being at the free throw line. When a player is in this higher pressure situation, they are taking a few seconds there to take a breath and visualize the basketball going through that net. Swoosh! Slide 18: Underestimate the vital component of effective visualization in your road to success, and you may find you an air ball! Slide 19: #3: Believe in Yourself Behind planning and picturing success comes the importance of believing in yourself. There is nothing worse than playing on a team with someone who thinks they are a terrible player! When someone has no confidence in themselves, they are more likely to play terrible. Slide 20: How about this strategy of belief playing out in golf or tennis? Ever swung at air and totally missed the ball? Well, when you are always thinking you can’t, you get can’t results! Slide 21: Negative thinking about the ability to play the game you have worked so hard to develop the necessary skills to succeed in, will just lead to more embarrassing moments that are not the kind to enhance your self confidence and may even lead people to quit thinking they are utter failures! Slide 22: #4: Work Hard for What YOU Want No one reached success in life or in sports without working hard! Those major league players worked years and years to get where they are! I heard stories of my cousin who made it to the big leagues and all the work and dedication he possessed the majority of his life to finally reach success Slide 23: He would arrive early to practice and be the last one to leave. He would give 110% even when he didn’t feel like it all because he wanted to be successful and reach his goal of seeing playing time in Major League Baseball. Slide 24: No matter which sport you are apart of, whether you are a dancer, gymnast, or play softball or tennis. You must work hard to be good. I don’t know of anyone in history automatically walking out there and being the MVP without some fort of effort beforehand. All those inspirational stories of success focus on one major theme: hard work pays off! Slide 25: #5: Get a Coach The final strategy that all successful athletes know is the importance of getting a coach. There is always a great coach behind a successful athlete. Slide 26: If you are a golfer, you have a coach there training you and helping you improve your game all the time! In softball, basketball, volleyball and other team sports, there is a coach that leads the team to victory. Slide 27: Without a coach, there is not a support system, a cheerleader, a teacher, an encourager, a guider, or a drill sergeant that will lead the team to victory. A coach is necessary to motivate, inspire, teach, and help the team develop the skills and push them to actually achieve the goals they need to achieve. Slide 28: A coach is the backbone to success. Without it, there is no one helping the athlete do everything they can to reach their goals. No one can be successful alone. There is always someone or a team behind their success. Slide 29: So, never give up and just get out there, work hard, get help, and do it! Slide 30: You Reaching Success in Life There is a point to all this sports madness! These 5 strategies that were mentioned above are critical not only for the athletes’ success, but also for the personal success of you! If you are struggling with achieving what you want in life, whether that be business success or losing that weight and keeping it off, there are 5 common denominators that will determine the level of success you can and will achieve! Slide 31: #1: Planning In order to reach any dreams, you must plan your path of reaching that dream. The first order or business is to sit down and really think about what you want to achieve. Why do you want to achieve it? Do you really want that or is it someone else who is wishing you would achieve that? Slide 32: Next, write out some goals you would like to achieve in order to reach that dream. Make sure the goals you come up with are measurable (you will know when you achieve it), have a time deadline, and are not overwhelming. Slide 33: Finally, you will need to figure out your course of action in order to reach those small goals. What steps do you need to take right now in order to achieve that? What will have to change in your life to meet those goals? Slide 34: #2: Picture Success In regards to visualizing success with your personal goals, it is very similar to picturing the success in sports of making the goal, basket, hit, etc. It is important to think about what you must do to achieve your goals. Slide 35: What will you do to get there? Visualize yourself going to gym doing your specific workout and enjoying getting healthier if that is your goal. If you want to be successful in business, visualize what needs to be completed and the steps you will be taking in order to reach your goals. Slide 36: Take a look at your goals and your plan of action. Visualize you following through your plan of action and being successful in taking one step closer of reaching your goals. Visualize what you will be doing to reach your ultimate dream and do it often! Slide 37: #3: Believe in Yourself The importance of developing the confidence to be successful and believe that you can achieve success can not be stressed enough. Right now make the decision that you can achieve weight loss or you can get that job promotion. Think positive about yourself. You have many gifts and talents that will help you be successful. Slide 38: You must banish negative thoughts from your mind. When you find yourself feeling down about yourself, take a deep breath and think positive. Tell yourself that you can and you will achieve success. Slide 39: Stop listening to that inner gremlin trying to keep you at the status quo! In order to achieve anything you must break the status quo and your inner gremlin doesn’t like that! Slide 40: #4: Work Hard for What YOU Want You must have the confidence to achieve your goals and then the dedication to actually achieve them! Working hard is vital to your success. The steps leading up to working hard all involved planning and laying the foundation for you to be able to achieve the success. Slide 41: However, you can think positive until your brain hurts but the only thing that will allow you to be successful is if you actually put everything into motion! You must take action! Slide 42: Take action right now to put your plans into motion and achieve your goals. Then work as hard as you can with all the dedication you can muster in order to actually achieve them! Get down into the trenches if you must, but do everything you can to reach your goals. The going may get tough, but the tough keep going! Success does not take quitters! Slide 43: #5: Get a Coach Lastly, we come to the importance of getting a coach to achieve your goals. When it comes to the importance of a coach for sports there is no question that success lies with a great coach. The same is true for your life. Slide 44: There are many different coaches out there over the past few years. The type of coach’s range from life coaches, business coaches, marketing coaches, relationship coaches, to success coaches and health coaches. There are coaches out there for pretty much any niche you can think of ready to help coach you to success in the area of your life that you need help. Slide 45: Whether you are ready to start a business, lose weight, repair relationships, improve your job, or even raise your child, there is a coach that is able to help you. Slide 46: True success lies in finding a coach who will support, encourage, teach, and coach you to success. This coach does not tell you what to do and then you must do. A successful coach will help you determine what fits best for what you want to achieve. Slide 47: They customize their coaching to help you find how YOU can best be successful, not how they were successful so it will work for you. Slide 48: There is nothing that will lead to your greater success than finding the right person to coach you and support you along to your dream. Stop trying to do everything alone, and find the person who is right to help you find the right path to reach your dreams! Slide 49: So, in order for you to reach your dreams and find that success you are looking for, it is vital that you plan, visualize your success, believe that you can be successful, work hard toward your goals, and get the support and help that a coach can offer you. Stop trying to get there alone! Slide 50: How can a Health Coach and weight Loss Coach help you reach your goals?
