"I Am A Competitor!"
The Conquest Identity Cultivation Process:
Developing The Subconscious Dominance Impact Pre-Disposition
When you say, "I Am A Competitor," what specifically are you referring to? Do you mean you "play"/perform as a certain persona, or at a certain level? Do you refer to a specific part of yourself who does certain things in certain ways - and with a certain type purpose or outcome in mind?
Are you (in your mind) distinguishing yourself from other competitors, and asserting a particular identity (or aspect of your identity) embodying characteristics clearly pre-disposed toward confidence, performance power, commitment, engaging opposition, personal excellence and triumph impact's congruent expression?
You've probably never thought about the dynamics contributing to the notion "I Am A Competitor" to the depth the preceding sets forth.
So, just what do you mean when you say "I Am A Competitor?" And, what would happen if you did begin to answer and define all the initial questions I posed -- yes, so you did come to define your competitive self and identity to this broad, and implicit a degree?
What would happen? You'd become a self-reinforced, self-driven, purpose fueled performer - someone who naturally, boldly, and deliberately determines what they will do ... and then (instinctively) becomes the embodiment of power, conviction and will who then demonstrates the compelling champion's intensity and performance involvement -- and then clearly does it!
And this champion's intensity and involvement is the commanding physical generation of full mental/emotional forcefulness - laser driven toward decisive competitive conquest!
Got your attention now? Yeah? Thought I would. In fact, any lesser (or "watered down") definition of "I Am A Competitor" (one that does not fully define and answer the initial questions I posed) - will not lead to the competitive identity inclination I just described.

The Conquest Forcefulness Of Your Competitive Identity:
If your current "I Am A Competitor" concept is non-comprehensive and/or component specific (to a degree where power seemingly rivets through you when you consider this aspect of yourself), the following process will help you dramatically strengthen this idea so you experience a measurable performance enhancing mental shift.
Understand that your competitive identity is literally a performance instigating foundation from which unfolds essentially all of what you do, how you do it, and the quality of impact and results you produce through your competitive expression.
You can deliberately subconsciously establish, build-up, reinforce and embed a more success commanding, conquest compelling competitive identity; you can internalize pre-dispositions toward competitive expressions that (individually and collectively) instigate performance actions and impact notably beyond the levels your current "I Am A Competitor" self-definition registers.
I tell you this from more than 28 years working with pro players and competitors in every professional sport.
So, how do you structure this performance magnifying "I Am A Competitor" identity shift -- where you broaden, deepen, strengthen and seriously empower your competitive self concept - and do this in a manner leading you to generate action power and capabilities notably superior to where "I Am A Competitor" tendencies within you customarily would?
Glad you asked. And what follows is the answer. Now, you'll subconsciously internalize the component and attribute ideals that collectively incite a "conquest/driven to prevail" competitive identity moving you to express the fullest and most commanding degrees of skill, impact and ability you personally embody.
And as you engage, and continue with the following process, you'll find your level of competitive skill, ability and triumph/impact capacity is decidedly more vast than you likely ever realized!

The "I Am A Competitor" Conquest Identity Cultivation Process:
I encourage you to engage this process one hour before you retire each night. Here's what to do:
- Sit or lie comfortably upon your back in an area where you're sure you won't be disturbed
- Take 3 L-o-n-g D-e-e-p breaths, inhaling through your nostrils, and exhaling slowly through your mouth
- After you've exhaled the third deep breath, begin reading each of the 10 upcoming "I Am A Competitor" performance impact factors. Read each factor slowly and thoughtfully, getting a strong internal feel for its overall meaning.
When you're done reading each individual factor, gently close your eyelids down, and f-e-e-l its meaning and energy flooding you -- all of you. Then, feeling this, let your eyelids open and proceed to read and integrate the next "I Am A Competitor" impact factor in the manner just outlined.
Continue on in this manner right through "I Am A Competitor" impact factor #10.
- After you've read through all 10 "I Am A Competitor" impact factors (as outlined), clearly imaginatively project an impression of yourself the striking reflection of a magnitude peak performer. And experience this impression the physical embodiment of all 10 "I Am A Competitor" impact factors mentally/emotionally blended together ... and inwardly fused:
Let yourself notice what envisioning this physical presence indicates you (as an athlete/competitor) now feel you:
- Can do!
- Decisively, unquestionably will do (within your personal game/event involvement)!
- Next, imaginatively project this self impression standing in front of a full length mirror. Look directly into your eyes as the embodiment of this full magnitude peak performer ... and clearly, decisively notice:
- The degree of power you sense surging through you
- The level of ability you sense you possess
- The level of skill capacity you sense you possess, and have at your disposal
- Your level of resolve to take charge, strive forward, generate competitive dominance ... and Prevail!
- After you've completed #5 as outlined, let yourself momentarily savor the sensations of extreme ability and power you experience freely flowing through you. Then, easily let your attention focus on your breathing, inhale deeply, let your eyelids open ... and s-t-r-e-t-c-h.
Then, feeling the compelling sense of confidence and strength gleaned from this process, let yourself mentally/emotionally unwind, and prepare for sleep.
When you get into bed to sleep, then just let yourself deeply relax, and drift off into a soothing, peaceful slumber - thereby allowing your subconscious mind to naturally absorb all of the new action commands, and self concept attributes, you've just imbued it with.
