My mind is my biggest asset.
I expect to win every tournament I play.
- Tiger Woods
The quote listed above reminds me of what I said
prior to going to China in 1997, for the World
Shuai-chiao Kung fu Championships.
Each member of the team was asked to say some-
thing to go into a souvenir program.
I said: “I never go into a competition expecting to lose.
I go expecting to win – and win I do.”
Twas cocky of me to say this. But it was how I felt in
my training – so I let the quote stand.
Glad I did.
Expecting to win is not the same as wanting to win.
When you expect to win you have amplified your
imagination. You’ve pushed your level of desire
up a notch.
Key thing to remember is that you have no right to
expect success if you do nothing to bring it about.
You imagine what you want, you see yourself excited

whatever it takes. I’m betting he’s not. He’ll do a little

Frustration is NOT part of the success process. Get over
Do what champions do.
When success eludes them, they focus MORE – not less.
They recommit. They “get tough.”
Today’s world is filled with sissies who want to baby their
way to the top.
Good idea, if applied properly.
What do I mean.
What I mean is this: Observe the baby. Falls down 1,000 times,
gets up 1,000. Eventually learns to walk. But not by a parent
who says, “Oh Johnny, you’ve fallen so many times. You’ve
worked so hard. I think you should try something else.”
The same applies to any endeavor. The more you fail, the
more you fall down, the closer you are to success.
