Racers’ Workout Is All About Taking On Problems
The mindset of the highly successful is one of always looking for opportunity. We talked in recent articles about Thomas Watson of IBM and his success key to “double your rate of failure”. Unless a person commits himself to living in a cave and minimal interaction with the outside world, there will be friction. Friction and difficulty brought on by external forces, often lead to what we know generaly as problems.
We all have problems. There is a success secret in how the best among us deal with problems. They don’t manage them, or 12 step them. Rather they focus on making problems into opportunities. Brian Tracy says in 21st century success law #5 that within each problem we encounter, there actually lies the beginnings of greater success. Guys I train like Joey Saldana of Sprint Cars and NASCAR’ Kasey Kahne are elite because they are always looking for the benefit and how they can better themselves from adverse circumstances. They are always focusing their minds on how they can add value.
Simply shutting down and ruminating on a difficult situation will actually create more difficulty and cut off any possibility of benefits being created. Within my Racer’s Workout is a mental fitness training program for car and motorcycle racers that focus on maximizing the moment. Avoid the tendency to curl up in a ball when life’s inevitable resistence comes your way and work on a new tendency to actually welcome it with an eye towards maximizing the value of it for you and everyone around you. What we are talking about here is basic wholesome beneficial habits of thinking being created the same way the bad ones were: Constant repetition.
Start with this simple mental exercise: Every time something happens that tends to cause a negative reaction inside of you as if automatic, take a moment or two to let the event pass. Then ask yourself, how can I make this into something of benefit? Spend your time thinking strategically and not accepting that an event is wholly negative. This habit empowers your mind and it will almost magically bring you overall greater happiness and success.
