Arnold Schwarzenegger once said...
“Bodybuilding is much like any other sport. To be successful, you must dedicate yourself 100% to your training, diet and mental approach.” Most everyone is dedicated to their diet and training. But what separate the average athlete from the champions are their mindset, beliefs, and attitude.To become a champion, no matter what your goal, you must dedicate yourself to thinking like a champion. When a champion becomes a championCan you only think of yourself as a champion when you become one? Absolutely not.So when do you become a champion?Is it when you’re the biggest guy in the gym? When you win your first bodybuilding show? When you’ve been undefeated five, eight, or ten times in a row?The truth is, you become a champion when you say you’re a champion.Because when you call yourself a champion, guess what happens? You start to ACT like a champion.
From thinking to believing When you call yourself a champion, you unlock something inside of you that you didn’t know existed before.First, your confidence soars. Even if you’re already a confident person. The more you call yourself a champion, the more you begin to believe it.
And it is this level of confidence that gives champions the ability to actually believe in their ability to achieve their goal.Second, when you call yourself a champion, you raise the bar for yourself.
