Getting Your Head In Gear – Ideal Performing State

The ideal performing state is the point when your mind is perfectly aligned to the task you need to undertake  – it’s a positive state of readiness that manifests itself into high levels of personal confidence. It is vital that we get our mind and body into the ideal performing state before we take on any challenging situations. All actions  flow from our state of mind, so it is important to condition our thoughts to the outcome we want. By doing this, we programme our self to deliver a highly tuned and positive performance. Any successful person will tell you that before they embark on a major goal – they think things through!

Getting into the ideal performing state takes practice and as we move towards our goals we need to be constantly aware of the need to get into the zone. It maybe an interview for a new job or promotion, a big pitch, a marathon run or a speech you have to deliver – whatever the challenge you must connect thought and action to get the best result. Getting your head in gear means following some mind practices:

  • Visualise and define very clearly what a great performance looks like for you
  • Work through the start, middle and ending of the task you are going to perform
  • Look in the mirror and tell yourself that the performance will be fantastic
  • Be sure to have practiced and rehearsed – winners don’t wing it
  • Breathing can help immensely – sit upright and still, close your eyes, take a deep breath and count to seven – slowly release and count to eleven. Repeat for a couple of minutes
  • Concentrate on the task at hand and avoid having your mind cluttered with other thoughts

Your ability to access the ideal performing state will increase your success rate. Keep practicing in the mind gym and watch yourself grow in confidence. Success becomes a habit! Getting your head in gear
