- Lose weight, if needed. Lose the extra pounds of fat that hinder your movements, require extra energy, and put unnecessary stress and strain on your joints.
- Eliminate negative thoughts. If you think you may fail, then you are harboring that possibility. Except failure when it occurs and deal with it, but do not let negative thoughts cloud your mind.
Be friends with your competition
- Hate slows. Desire the best for your friends, and have them desire the best for you. You will improve each other's abilities to levels you never would have reached otherwise. When you compete with a friend, you are relaxed and much quicker in your thoughts and movements. What would be better than always finishing #1 and #2 with your best friend? When you lose to a friend, you are disappointed in yourself, but happy for your friend.
