Even when they are heavily favored, and physically superior than their opponent?
It’s because the result of the match depends on what goes on in each athlete’s mind!
Here’s an example…
Remember Mike Tyson? He’s been trying to make a comeback for 15 years and he still hasn’t succeeded!
The former heavyweight champion once scared his opponents to the point where they would simply want to run out of the ring instead of facing him…
Now he can’t knockout a guy who stands still in front of him with his chin extended.
So why is it that the man who was once the most feared fighter in the world can’t knock out someone who is standing still in front of him?
It’s the same reason why a top athlete loses to an inferior athlete. And it’s the same reason why you sometimes never achieve a goal even though you really want to.
So what is the reason? In a word — desire.
Most people either lose their desire to succeed, don’t have the desire to succeed, have the wrong desire attached to their goal or don’t know what their real desire is.
The last 2 are where most people fall — they may want to achieve certain goals — but don’t have the right desire attached to their goal or don’t know what their real desire is.
Your desire is what fuels your success. If you don’t have the desire to achieve your goal, you’re not going to achieve it.
A goal without a desire is like driving a car without gas. You’re simply not going to get anywhere.
If you want to achieve your goals you need to have the desire to achieve your goal or you have to have the right desire associated with that goal.
What’s Your Desire?
We all want a lot of things and we all would like to have a lot of different things in our lives. But wanting and desiring something are very different.
For example, you may want to make more money, but what do you really desire?
If you think that money will give you more time, more security, more freedom then what you really desire is freedom, security, more time and perhaps a comfortable lifestyle.
You want more money but you really desire something completely different, something that you think having more money will allow you to achieve.
Realizing and understanding your core desire is critical to your success.
If you’re setting a goal to make more money, but don’t know what you truly desire then you may find that you’re not making the progress that you want because there is no real desire!
And this is only because you’re not focusing on your desire — you’re not using the Power of Desire.
After he lost his most recent fight Mike Tyson said: “I lost my desire, I’m not hungry anymore. I’m wealthy, my kids have money, I have nothing to fight for.”
Tyson’s desire to fight was to be wealthy and make sure that his family was financially secure. Filling his ego with the notion that he was heavyweight champ didn’t matter anymore.
Since he had the money, fighting wasn’t necessary to him and there was no desire to fight. He wanted to make some more money, he wanted to come back and be champ again but he had no real desire.
Muhammad Ali, on the other hand, had a burning desire to be heavyweight champion of the world. His desire wasn’t money — it was fame.
That’s why he always came back — until his body could no longer fulfill his desire.
Having a desire is what fuels your ability to succeed. You may want to make a million dollars, but what is it that you truly desire?
If this is your desire then this is what you need to focus on regularly, especially when you think about taking steps to make a million dollars or what ever amount you want to make.
How to Work With the Power of Desire
When you have a desire, you have power…
And you can use this power to direct your mind and subconscious mind to help you achieve your goals.
Whatever it is you want to achieve you can instill the desire within you to make it happen.
How? It’s really quite simple.
If you want to be in a relationship then think about why you want to be in a relationship. Saying that it would be nice isn’t good enough. You have to ask yourself why it would be nice.
If you don’t have a desire to accomplish your goal then you have likely chosen the wrong goal or you don’t clearly understand why you want to achieve that goal.
Once you know what you truly desire you can begin working with this power by continually sending the right messages to your subconscious mind.
When you do this, you instruct your subconscious mind to create the situations you want to help you achieve that which you desire.
These next steps require that you pay more attention to what you think, say and do.
It’s great to have a desire but if your thoughts, words and actions are in conflict what you desire, you will not succeed.
This means having beliefs and attitudes that allow you to fulfill your desire.
You can’t desire to have a better life and then believe that it’s difficult to make more money and improve your life.
You can’t have a desire to be married and have a belief or say that it’s difficult to meet the right man or woman.
If you have a belief that is in conflict with what you desire then you’re really defeating yourself before you even start.
I suggest that you keep a notepad and pen handy so that you track your thoughts, words and actions.
Then change that thought, word, or action so that it does support your desire.
When you do this you start to redirect your mind and instruct your subconscious mind to create the life you want.
When you have the right desire and when you properly instruct your subconscious mind you virtually guarantee your success and you essentially become unstoppable!
Don’t waste another moment creating the life you don’t want. Remember — this is it. This is the only life you have.
