Power Thoughts:

"If one advances confidently in the direction of one's dreams, and endeavors to live the life which one has imagined, one will meet with a success unexpected in common hours."    - 
Henry David Thoreau 

"To expect the unexpected shows a thoroughly modern intellect."
                                                                                          -Oscar Wilde

"High achievement always takes place in the framework of high expectation."

Sports Psychology Tips:

The Power Of Your Inner Dialogue:

This story was first told by Joel Osteen Ministries.
I changes parts of the story to relate to Sports Psychology.

During the 1999, Jose Lima was the star pitcher for the Houston Astros.  His record was  21-10, 3.58 ERA, 3 complete games, 246 innings pitched.  
During that year Lima was one of the best pitchers in all of baseball. 

But then the  Astros moved from the Astrodome to their new ballpark. The fence in left field was much closer than the fence in the Astrodome. It favored the hitters and made it more difficult on the pitchers. 

The first time Jose Lima visited the new ballpark, he looked at the fence, and said, " I’ll never be able to pitch in here. The fence is way too close.” 

The next season, he went from being a 21-game winner to a 16-game loser. His record was  7-16,  6.65 ERA,  O complete games, 196 innings pitched.  

What went wrong?

The Law of Expectations tells us that whatever one expects, with confidence, becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.  What we believe will happen, those beliefs can be positive or negative.

This negative inner dialogue not only affects the way we feel but the way we playAll our performances are influenced by our thoughts. If our thoughts are positive, we will play better and 
have more positive energy.

“You are snared by the words of your mouth...”
(Proverbs 6:2, NKJV)
