Power Athletes

Much has been said and written about peak athletic performance, yet few are able to perform consistently at the level they wish. They have their days when they are “on” and their days when they are “off.”

Instinctively, athletes know the answer lays in the “mind,” but don’t have the precision answers needed to control the power that determines whether they are going to be “on” or “off.”

We at Ability Consultants, Inc., have addressed this issue successfully for more than four decades; indeed, the research that led to the development of the techniques and processes of KNOWLEDGISM™ began with the endeavor to enhance athletic performance.

As an example, when athletes are at the top of their form, they speak of being “in the zone,” or of being “focused,” “in command,” or “in control.” When they are not doing well, they speak of losing their “concentration,” or of “not being focused,” or “not in command.”

Few realize that what they are actually speaking of are the natural spiritual abilities to direct their attention, command the presence of their full awareness, and exercise full volition over their well honed skills.

We have long observed, for example, why elite athletes often fail at the critical moment.  I saw it with the golfer Greg Norman.  For me, it was an unforgettable example of how a champion athlete’s thinking and loss of presence can sabotage his power.

It was in the 1986 US Masters Tournament.  This below from wikipedia:

“Norman buried the birdie putt, his fourth straight, to tie for the lead. Norman hit a perfect drive on 18, needing birdie for his first major championship. However, Norman pushed his approach shot into the gallery and missed his 15-foot (4.6 m) par putt. Nicklaus had stormed back, shooting 30 on the back 9, to win his sixth Masters title and became the oldest Masters champion at age 46.”

I actually saw Greg Norman freezing up and resisting what he did not want to have happen on that approach shot . . . and I knew the moment I saw that he would screw it up.

It was a case of creating what he did not want in order to resist it.

At ABILITY CONSULTANTS, INC., we teach athletes proven exercises and processes that put the athlete in command of his or her dynamic presence, in control of his or her domain of attention span, in control of his or her determining of power and the directing of that power across their chosen activity.

It is the key to getting the exact outcomes you intend and want.

Athletes who know these secrets have at their command the ability to stay at the top of their form.

Dynamic Presence

Dynamic Presence
The Key to Competence, Performance & Mastery

The dictionary defines dynamic, in part, as: relating to energy or physical force in motion; energetic, vigorous, forceful; relating to or tending toward change. Thus, there is a dramatic difference between dynamic presence and passive presence.

But most stark of all is the fact that many individuals have no presence at all.

Individuals quite frequently are not willing or able to be present — the circumstances are too trying, the task too daunting, the pressure too much, there are unpleasant sensations or moods involved; and the individual fades away. He or she loses “it”. He or she can’t find the thoughts that were there a moment ago. The control of his or her mind, abilities and clarity of thought is lost. His or her power to reach, persuade, and accomplish is diminished, even lost.

Athletes refer to it as “loss of concentration” — and with it goes the loss of their power to win.

With loss of presence goes loss of power. It is that important a subject. Any honest person who is aware of his or her own feelings innately knows this.

Ability Consultants, Inc., especially addresses this subject with proven techniques that restore the ability to be powerfully, knowingly, dynamically present.

With the power and ability to be dynamically present restored, an individual can manifest his or her thoughts, project them powerfully, persuade others, and accomplish his or her visions. The individual is alive again, reaching, interested and successful.

And for athletes, it means they can truly deliver on the performance they promised themselves.
