Champion And Runner-Up!!
My brother and I are both Professional Chess Players. We had been playing quite a few tournaments in India, with success! BUT, the success was always limited to Rapid Fun events. We always used to falter at the Standard Chess Events and Fail!
In the 1st week of March 2013, from 2nd to 6th March, we played a tournament in Mumbai, India. We had our sights set on finishing 1st and 2nd in the tournament, come what may! We imagined ourselves standing on the podium!
After 2 days into the tournament, things turned bleak. We again seemed to be falling short in this serious format. We had drifted back, and seemed far from being 1st.
Then, we changed our thought process! We wrote our goal of finishing 1st and 2nd and winning $500 each!! We wrote this goal on an MS-Excel sheet and started talking as if we had already won the thing! Our thought processes changed and we became much more positive!
Amazingly, 2 days later, we were there! On the Podium! 1st and 2nd! $500 each and a Trophy! 😀
You just have to have the Positive Thoughts and BELIEVE!!
Thank you – THE SECRET! 🙂
