Do you remember who said that? Right, Cassius Marcellus Clay Jr, aka Muhammed Ali. His famous “trash talks” before the actual fight played a very important role. The hardest part of a fight is not in the ring, it’s the time you spent before the fight.
The “trash talks” are part of the mental training. I guess the art of “trash talk” is really to “impress” the person in front of you. Unfortunately, most people use “trash talks” against themselves. It is not about being mean to someone. “Trash talks” are about showing self-confidence, showing that you are ready to win that fight or any other challenge you are confronted with.
Since the movie “The Secret” came out, I am sure everyone is aware of what affirmations are. Sentences you are saying to yourself to influence your subconsciousness. To do affirmations right, you should follow the following 5 points:
- Use positive words
- Use present tense
- Use first person (I or we)
- Be detailed
- Use emotions, tone and energy
Imagine how you can impress your opponent by saying affirmations out loud. Sounds like “trash talk? I would say so.
- I will show you how great I am.
- I am a leader and I am making it with or without you.
- I am successful.
