Recently, our MPFO family gathered to attend the Mental Management seminar hosted by Heather Sumlin and conducted by two-time Olympic medalist and World Champion Lanny Bassham. Such an encouraging and uplifting day!! We learned so much about how preparing our minds for competition, whether it is for pageants, sports, jobs, or whatever we may be working toward, is the most critical step because it affects everything else we do to prepare. As we learned about ‘proper’ goal setting, the importance of self-image and the difference between goals and wishes, I was amazed to find that so many of the things I worry about while I’m preparing for competition are things I don’t need to worry about—they are out of my control. What an amazing opportunity to get a peek into the mind of an Olympian and to hear the stories of how Lanny was able to put himself in the position to succeed at such a high level. He even allowed us to hold his gold and silver medals!!!! Wow!! If you have never had the chance to experience the Mental Management program, I would strongly encourage you to e-mail Heather Sumlin and find out more about it.
Lanny and Heather, thank you for a fantastic day!!! I love you guys!!
