Are you supersticious?
Many racers may have certain regular habits they go through to assure themselves of a safe, successful outcome. Here are some examples:
- wearing a specific pair of “lucky” socks (or other piece of clothing)
- getting into their race car going through a specific series of motions
- putting on their helmet or driving gloves in a certain way
- using a specific good luck charm or talisman
Do these methods work? I’m sure it’s up to the individual. Probably it’s best explained that these routine methods give the racer a sense of predictable outcome, a point of normalcy, & a stable foundation to start from.
Such is life…
If you feel secure in what you’re going to be doing, confidence follows. Your activities in life seem to flow – you’ll be “in the zone”. This can consistently happen using visualization techniques. That is, you go through a specific timeframe of succesful actions in your mind (like picturing a movie/slide show of a successful racing session). Practiced often, this is an excelent way to work toward successful results.
Racing Ready believes you create your own luck & success in life, but using good visualization techniques can’t help but to skew your results to the positive side of your life!
