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!
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?

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.
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.”
athletes tell me their sport is at least 50% mental. But how much of your time is spent doing mental practice? And how much
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

how Joe Montana responded when after he finished a speech, someone in the audience asked him how old he was when he won his

since. All but four of them, I explained, took place in our backyard in my hometown of Monongahela, Pennsylvania, a few miles

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.
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!
