One of the best pieces of advice that can be given to a budding athlete is: as you think, so you will become. It is an empowering mantra that describes a fundamental psychological law. If you keep this principle in mind, you will find yourself transformed. Achieving your health and sporting goals begins with the mind. Here are five ways to follow this powerful law and achieve your goals.

Don’t Dwell on the Bad

If you dwell on the negative events and expect bad things to happen, they will. If you don’t think you’re good enough, you never will be.

Think Positively

Instead of telling yourself that you can’t do what you want and comparing yourself to others, focus on the positives. Celebrate your successes, improve on your losses, and know that you will achieve in the end.

Be Confident

Believe in yourself and you will become the person you want to be. Show confidence and stay motivated.


The simple secret to success is: believe. Believing that you can achieve your goals and that you deserve it is 50% of the battle.

Have Faith

This amounts to having faith. Faith is the secret to success. Achieving your goals takes time, effort and persistence. As you think, so you will become. Have faith, and you will achieve great things.
