Following on from last months newsletter which was all about mental fitness in surfing, this month we look at the 2012 London Olympic preparations and how we can all learn from Olympic Champions. We know they have a range of coaches for physical and mental elements of their preperation. The mental coaches share with them tools for mental resilience, unquestioning belief in themselves and an unshakeable desire to win.

How to Perform like an Olympic Champion
The 2012 Olympic Games are almost upon us. The Australian Olympic swimming team has just been picked. The planning and building of the Olympic facilities has been ongoing for more than 7 years. Here in Australia as businesses head towards the new financial year in July we too need to be preparing, like these Olympic athletes if we want to deliver a gold medal performance in financial year 2012/13.
We know that individuals that become Olympic champions are able to, every day, access their alpha state and visualise the peak performance which results in them winning gold. They are able to imagine the sights, sounds, smells at that moment when the medal is placed around their neck. This ability gives them the unshakeable belief in their performance, whether as an individual or part of a team.
The men and women who will be there, in London, competing have dreamed their whole lives of competing at an Olympic games, some will already have competed before but for some it will be their first Olympics. All the hard work and mental preparation will soon be realised.

Book Review Corner
MindStore for Personal Development by Jack Black
If you are looking to find out how MindStore can help you both professionally and personally then this book, written by the founder of MindStore, gives you a taste of a few of the MindStore tools and techniques and the amazing ways that they can change your life.
Read it and learn some amazingly simple techniques for improvement.
This might seem like a plug, but like all the books we have recommended over the last few months, we fundamentally believe that they absolutely help.
You only have to read the interviews given by Stephanie Gilmore, our local surf world champion, to understand the thinking and mental toughness that makes the difference between extraordinary surfers and ordinary surfers like me.
Here’s another quote from Mick Fanning another local world champion, ”Sometimes surfing this bank from Snapper to Kirra, sometimes you don’t even think what you’re doing… You get to the end of a wave and go, what did I do? Sometimes you go into a totally different state of mind.
The MindStore members who receive this newsletter will notice the strong similarities in the language between these surf coaching comments below, between what top surfers learn and practice consistently, and what you can learn from MindStore.
Just as we do in MindStore to achieve our goals we use our subconscious mind to visualise the moment of our success and constantly replay that image.
