“Visualization can help you to motivate yourself to work out… to motivate yourself to go out and actually participate, take part in the activity, in the game. It can help you to prepare, and it can help you to correct your mistakes.
“In everything in life, you need to prepare yourself mentally. You hear that 90 percent of the time, it is a mental thing – the mental game. You also need to do the physical things. But sometimes, what do we do? Get home, sit down, turn on the television. How do you motivate yourself to go out there and do the things you need to do to prepare yourself? Use the visualization workout and fitness techniques. Imagine yourself doing the things.
“One of the best ways to motivate yourself is to visualize your successes. Visualize the times when you accomplished something good… when you won the game, when you did something spectacular. Those will help you to motivate yourself to go and work out.
“How many time have you said, ‘Gee, if I had just done this, we would have won the game’? You can prepare yourself by using the Exercise Mental Rehearsal Workout and Fitness workout and fitness technique. Imagine yourself doing the things that you need to do. Imagine yourself doing the right things.
“If you have made a mistake, acknowledge it, and correct it. That’s all you need to do. By the time you get to the physical part, you will have already played the game. You will have already won the game.”
