There were many who doubted that he could do it, based on his recent performance. Last year, he was disqualified from the World Athletics Championship, mens’ 100 metre final when he fell fall of the one strike and you’re out rule, as a result of a false start.However, Usain Bolt was fully focused on getting the gold medal in the London 2012 Olympics, men’s 100 metre final.
Worried about a false start, the advice of his coach was to not focus on the negative, i.e. that previous false start, but to focus on what he can achieve, telling him that he should not worry about his start as his best race is at the end.
Now that is what you should do too. In order to achieve your ‘gold’, do not focus on past failures. Focus instead on the magnificent things that you are capable of achieving, in order to give yourself the highest possibility of winning whatever your equivalent of a gold medal is.
Focusing on the negative will only magnify your fears about not being able to achieve your success.
Focusing on what you want to achieve and having faith in your abilities will make your race far easier to win.
