Even if you donít follow golf, read on for an amazing story aboutrepparttar power of normalizing.

Hilary Lunke had been onrepparttar 144826 professional womenís golf circuit for only two years after graduating with a Masters in Sociology from Stanford University. In 2003, she had to play two rounds inrepparttar 144827 days precedingrepparttar 144828 US Open just to qualify to play since her cumulative scores didnít automatically qualify her. She qualified by just one stroke.

Amazingly, on July 7, 2003, Lunke becamerepparttar 144829 2003 US Open winner. She won over $500,000, which was over $225,000 more thanrepparttar 144830 2nd place finisher, whom she beat by one stroke.

How did she pull this off? In her interviews it seemedrepparttar 144831 key factor was that she normalized each shot in her mind, takingrepparttar 144832 pressure off. What is normalizing? Itís making a situation or activity seem ordinary rather than extraordinary. If itís something weíre familiar with, weíre usually less intimidated by it.

Your First Step To Success In Every Area of Life!

Written by Jason Oman -

If you want to be more successful in any area of your life, there is one single step you MUST take before anything else. Nothing can affect any kind of positive change until and unless this step is taken first.

Recently I came acrossrepparttar best written example I've ever seen that emphasizesrepparttar 144793 importance of this crucial concept. I don't know who originally wrote it, but I found it in a great book called 'The PowerMind System'.

It's a poem called, "It's Your Fault":


If you hate your job and you DECIDE to stay there, it's your fault.

If someone offers you a better job, but it requires you to move to another city, it's your fault.

If you DECIDE to save no money during your working lifetime, winding up broke and embarrassed at age 65, dependent on charities for survival, it's your fault.

If you DECIDE not to study or read in your chosen field and find yourself never rising above mere mediocrity, it's your fault.

If you DECIDE to spend more money than you make, running yourself into debt by satisfying one capricious whim after another, it's your fault.

If you DECIDE to waste all your time on meaningless activities, neglecting allrepparttar 144794 important things you could do with your life, it's your fault.

If you DECIDE never to read a self-help book and then suffer dramatically because you are ignorant of success principles, it's your fault.
