Super Bowl XLV will be played in Dallas this year. The 2011 Super Bowl teams are the Green Bay Packers and the Pittsburgh Steelers.  It will be the big sports event of the year in Dallas.  And yes, people will be hypnotized by watching the game live, or on TV.

So what do you think? Will Ben Roethlisberger get his third Super Bowl Ring, or will his off the field personal problems from earlier this year in any way be a distraction for him? Or will Aaron Rodgers with his laser precise arm be winning his first?
 ,,,
And when did either of them win their very First Super Bowl? You’re probably thinking, wait a minute, Rodgers hasn’t won his first yet. Really? You think he hasn’t?  I’ll give you a hint, it has something to do with hypnosis!
,,,
For some reason, it got me to thinking about one of the great athletes of all time -- Joe Montana. So here’s a question for you. Do you know how old Joe Montana was when he won his first Super Bowl?

To continue reading, please go to: You probably think you know. And would probably bet money on it. Wouldn’t you? Don’t put the money down yet. The answer will be towards the end of this article – the real answer that is.

How old were you when you FIRST reached the height of your success? Whether it’s business, football, hockey, baseball, basketball, soccer, tennis, golf or whatever – think about that question for a few moments. Were you in your twenties, thirties, forties? Older? Twelve? Younger?

“Confidence doesn't come out of nowhere.

It's a result of something...

hours and days and weeks and years

of constant work and dedication.”

How much of your game / sport is physical?
,,,
And how much is mental?
.,,,
According to Yogi Berra – “Baseball is ninety percent mental and the other half is physical.”
,,,
Most athletes tell me their sport is at least 50% mental. But how much of your time is spent doing mental practice? And how much physical?
,,,
The difference between an elite athlete and one just one notch down the ladder is just one step. The elite athlete spent more time on the mental game than the one on the next level down.  And sometimes, it can be measured in 1 /100th of an second.  Think Michael Phelps!
,,,
You better believe every winning Quarter Back who ever has or ever will play in the Super Bowl, or on any NFL team, or college team, and probably most high school and younger have spent a lot of time on their mental game. And not just Quarter Backs, and not just Football Players either!  And you can bet they had a Mental Coach that taught them some Self-Hypnosis techniques to stay Focused and boost their Confidence!
,,,
Athletes have a sports coach and many use personal trainers for the physical. But how many utilize a Coach to help them with the mental game?
,,,
Only the ones who really want to be on top of their game. The ones who really want to move to the next level above their teammates and opponents.

“Setting a goal is not the main thing.

It is deciding how you will go about achieving it

and staying with that plan.”
Tom Landry
,,, 
Here’s how Joe Montana responded when after he finished a speech, someone in the audience asked him how old he was when he won his first Super Bowl.
,,,
“Twelve years old, and I’ve won a thousand of them since. All but four of them, I explained, took place in our backyard in my hometown of Monongahela, Pennsylvania, a few miles down the road from Pittsburgh.”
...
Winners, I am convinced
imagine their dreams first.
The want it with all their heart
and expect it to come true.
There is, I believe
no other way to live.
Joe Montana
,,,
You see, Joe Montana knew the secret of making dreams come true. He played every game, every scrimmage, every practice as if it was a Super Bowl. He started preparing for a Super Bowl in his Mind when he was twelve years old! And he was always competing with himself to do better than he had before.
,,,
And that’s my story and I’m sticking with it!
