At times I wonder about the key to really tapping into mind power. What does it really take to move though those mental blocks? There is more to this than mental conditioning.
I recently watched a YouTube video talking about Allison Streeter, a long distance open ocean swimmer. I was fascinated my her story and achievements which all stem from mind power.
Allison Streeter is know as “The Queen Of The Channel” She has 43 solo crossings of the English channel, one triple crossing which means she swam from England to France to England and back to France. She also completed 3 double channel crossings.
You might mistake this woman for a machine especially when you look at all the world records she hold. She holds the title of crossing the English channel more than anyone in history.Here is the formula behind her success of crossing the channel so many times. She says its 10% physical and 90% mental… that’s a whole lotta mental power to cross the channel. She believes you can do more than you think you can and I agree. We all have the potential to exceed our wildest expectations.
How does she really keep going? What is her focus? According to Allison, when she is in the water she focuses on the next arm stroke. Just like working towards your goal, you focus on the next thing to do to ensure continued success on your journey.
She really loves taking up challenges especially when people say it can’t be done. This attitude may be responsible for all her world records. Allison says “I have a really good ability to concentrate. In the channel, you can’t think too far ahead or you get overwhelmed. I just take each hour as it comes.”
