I used to believe I used to believe that if you worked really hard at something that would be enough to help you to achieve it. The hard work would be enough to carry you through whatever task, test or competition you had to deal with. But with that kind of thinking you are missing, what I think is the largest piece of the puzzle. You have to believe in yourself and your abilities to perform. This doesn’t mean that you have a belief that the adrenaline rush of competition will allow you to do absolute impossible and improbable tasks. But it does mean that you are going to be able to do something special. Everybody gets a little nervous for an interview, a test, or a competition. This is normal. The fear is usually stemming from the desire to want to do really well. However, this can be something that consumes you or you won’t be able to compete at all. We have talked before about the belief in yourself and what that really means. It doesn’t mean that you believe you will win. It means you will believe in your ability to perform at the level that you should be performing. Don’t misunderstand this for a low expectation, or being “ realistic”. You still should and will do everything you can to achieve the goal or the task. You will fight tooth and nail for every rep or every question to answer but you won’t have the fear or the pressure of not succeeding.   This alone will allow you to achieve things you never thought you could because you will be unrestricted. You can have all the skill, all talent, all the answers in the world.   But if you don’t believe in yourself none of that will matter. You won’t make far enough to even use it. So keep your head strong, and your belief in yourself high and go kill it!!:)
