Sport Motivation

Audio sport motivation exercise focused on fear of failure and demand thinking by changing self-talk.  The purpose is to focus on pursuing excellence in the area of sports without the expectations that tend to interfere with success. (see article: Excellence vs. Perfection). The idea of this exercise is to listen to it frequently so as to increase the repetition of rational motivational self-talk.  The more you listen to it, the more you will start to use the thinking presented. Just close your eyes and listen without trying to force yourself to relax.  If your mind wanders, gently bring yourself back to focus on the words.

This exercise does not need complete relaxation in order to benefit.  You may find that you can listen to it while taking a walk or doing dishes or some other activity that doesn't require your complete focus.

Do not use while operating a vehicle or during other activities that require your full attention!

Intensity Training

Audio exercise focused on learning how to access the emotional state that you require in order to perform at the level you require. In sports, sometimes an athlete requires a high level of intensity such as a defensive football player or a fighter. Othertimes an athlete requires low intensity so as to focus such as a golfer.

This audio uses imagery of floating through the different colors of the rainbow and associating each color with a different emotional state such as red associated with strength and power and blue is associated with relaxation and calmness. The more you listen to this audio, the more your brain will associate those colors with the different emotional states. Then, when you need to access a certain emotional state for your sport you can just imagine that color flowing through you bringing the feelings and sensations you want.

This may be used while sitting or lying down in a quiet, comfortable place.  Just close your eyes and listen without trying to force yourself to relax.  If your mind wanders, gently bring yourself back to focus on the words.

Do not use while operating a vehicle or during other activities that require your full attention!
