How Conor Mcgregor fight with his mind
(1)You Must Believe You Are Unbeatable.
“My success isn’t the result of arrogance, it’s the result of belief.”
“It's the repetition of affirmations that leads to belief. And once that belief becomes a deep conviction, things begin to happen.”
– Muhammed Ali
“All that matters is how you see yourself. If you see yourself as the king, with all the belts and everything, and no matter what no one else says, as long as you see that, and really believe in it, then that’s what’s going to happen”
If you believe you are unbeatable, you will be.
If you have done any work on your mind then you will know that visualization and affirmations work.
McGregor is a living example of these practices.
He uses and talks about these practices in public and then goes and shows the world the power of these practices.
A lot of self-help advice is empty because they dont back it up with hard work and determination.
This is what McGregor has shown the world.
He has proven that if you have a vision, uses affirmations and back it up with hard work and a focused mind then anything is possible.
(2)Precision Beats Power, And Timing Beats Speed, Every Time.
“Smart work pays best. Trust it.”
After McGregor beat José Aldo a great MMA champion from Brazil McGregor said in an interview:
“Precision beats power, and timing beats speed, every time.”
What did he mean by this statement?
It simply meant that having skills, talent, and power is not enough.
“Precision” for Mcgregor comes from hard work and intelligence.
Therefore you can out-think and out-work your opponent.
You do this by being smart and thinking outside the box.
Combine that with hard work and you will have victory.
“There’s no talent here, this is hard work. This is an obsession. Talent does not exist, we are all human beings. You could be anyone if you put in the time. You will reach the top, and that’s that. I am not talented, I am obsessed.”
(3) There Is No Enemy Or Opponent.
“Life is about improving and getting better.”
McGregor believes that the biggest enemy you have is yourself.
Muhammed Ali had a similar belief.
Your biggest opponent is the guy starring at you in the mirror.
If you can overcome him then anything will be possible for you.
If you master yourself, you become unbeatable.
This is a hard pill to swallow for a lot of men in all areas of life.
They refuse to accept the fact that most of our problems are ones we created ourselves.
“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”
If you have mastery over yourself it means you mastered your fears and have taken control of your subconscious mind by consciously taking control over your conscious mind.
Do preparation in terms of your opponent but the biggest focus must be yourself.
If you can do this the victory will be yours.
(4)Being Your Own Biggest Fan.
“I believe in myself so much that nothing is going to stop me.”
You must learn to become your own biggest fan.
Nobody is a bigger fan of himself than Conor McGregor.
Even Conor Mcgregor Instagram is about Conor Mcgregor being his own biggest fan.
He has figured out that if you don't love yourself then how will others love you?
If you dont support yourself why should others?
When you face the hardest challenges in your life you must always be able to depend on your biggest fan: You!
Start talking to yourself like you are your own best friend.
Encourage yourself,dont talk negatively to yourself.
Unfortunetly most men talk to themselves like they would talk to their worst enemy.
They attack themselves and then wonder why they dont succeed in life.
Next time you make a mistake be nice to yourself.
Because if you won't then who will?
Start loving yourself.
If you are not going to give yourself a pat on the back then who will?
Until next time.
