Nonetheless, I have no intention of sitting still regardless [of] what anybody says. I am not banned from life. Period. I will continue to push myself and push others. There are a lot of other physical challenges out there and I plan on finding them and testing myself and continuing to spread the LIVESTRONG message worldwide.
I feel it’s helpful that I reintroduce myself. My name is Lance Armstrong. I am a cancer survivor. I am a father of five. I’m a native Texan. I am the founder of Livestrong . And I won the Tour de France seven times.
…taught me one of the key ingredients to success: visualization. before any race, workout or other big event be sure to find quiet, relaxed alone-time to release your nerves and meditate. review your big day through your head. see the obstacles - and see them being overcome. feel, breathe and think as relaxed as you truly want to be, come that moment. watch the occasion step by step from start to finish in your head until you’ve crossed that finished achieving the goal you’ve previously set. watch the results unfold just as you’d planned them. feel great, feel relieved and smile.
at this point, you know you’re ready for your big moment.
today throughout my transition run throughs (as i train for my second triathlon) i revisited this technique. having faith in my training, knowing i’m capable of so much more than i ever have been, physically i put my mind to work.
…i visualized my race, my speed and my strength. i visualized the finished line and my success. and because i enjoy visualization as much as i do, i visualized the guy that finished just seconds behind me after i out kicked him in the final 200 meters put his hand on my shoulder… he asked, “where did you come from?!” … i responded, “spotswood.” —
thanks coach, for teaching me years ago, things i still carry with me today that help me strive, achieve and repeat.
Champions do not become champions when they win the event, but in the hours, weeks, months and years they spend preparing for it. The victorious performance itself is merely the demonstration of their championship character.
