Fear is negative-desire is positive
Your mind is your brain-it is better than a computer
Attitude is a frame of mind
Simulation-put yourself into a situation when you last did it
Visualize-dream and know you can do it
Believe-confidence breeds success/winning
Self-esteem-know your own worth/ability/value
Goals, aims, targets-be better than the opposition; beat opponents
You must want to do it-power of positive thinking
Control-convert mental into physical actions. I’ll do the testing; I won’t be tested
Robot-record and replay the good things
Never get tired-just pleasantly weary

Winning is being happy with your performance, even if someone else does it better
