When it comes to winning, mindset is everything. Negative thoughts and behaviours can affect the outcomes of our hopes and dreams more than we will ever know, so when we want to win something, it is essential to adjust our thought processes to assist in welcoming this win. After all, we are what we think! If we think positive thoughts, we are more likely to attract a positive outcome. Especially when we use focus, visualisation and unadulterated positivity.
Negative thoughts and behaviours lead to a lack of confidence which feeds into a cycle of limiting beliefs and failures. If we choose to feed those thoughts, we inevitably attract negative outcomes. So instead of focusing on damaging and destructive thought patterns, adjust your mindset to anticipate success, achievement, positivity and accomplishment. This is the first step in achieving the outcome you truly want.
Whether you want to win a chess match or you want to see your winning numbers on the lottery, using affirmations can help prepare your mind for a positive outcome. By preparing the mind, we pave the way for success to manifest itself in our lives. Success can come to us in a number of ways, but if winning is something you particularly want to achieve then it is essential to be very detailed in your affirmations. This is where visualisation comes into play.
Never underestimate the power of detailed visualisation. Spending just a few minutes every day focusing your attention on what it is that you are hoping to win and picturing it in your mind can play a huge part in helping you to achieve your goal. If there is a particular prize you have your eye on, visualise it in your life. Think about how it would change your circumstances, the impact that it would have on you and those around you. Imagine how the prize would make you feel – relieved, happy, content, accomplished. Listen to those feelings and channel them into your visualisation to give it emotion; this, in turn, will add power to your affirmation.
If you want to win a cash prize, imagine how you would spend your winnings. For example, if you plan on taking a luxury cruise, imagine the feel of the ocean breeze on your face, the sun on your skin and the sound of the waves. Think about how those sensations will make you feel. If your team is hoping to win a major game, imagine the winning moment and how it will affect your team in the following months. Picture your team going on to have more success and achieving greater things.
It’s also important to think about the process you will go through before you win your prize. This could be by memorising the hand rankings of a card game and playing them out in your head, or by visualising yourself filling in the winning lottery ticket and seeing your numbers come up on the screen. You could imagine yourself surpassing your personal bests every day until you finally achieve the goal of winning a particular race or picture the effort it would take for your team to score the winning goal at an upcoming match. This will help to create a deep belief in your subconscious mind which will help you to attract the outcome you desire.
Choose one or several affirmations that you feel apply to you. Spend a few minutes each day repeating these affirmations, visualising the path to your success and imagining the feeling of your desired outcome. The best times to do this are usually first thing in the morning or last thing at night when you are peaceful and relaxed.
