Olympians Reveal Manifesting Skills

Olympic Athletes Show Manifesting SkillsIs everyone else as enthralled with the stories at the Olympics as I am?

Watching the events themselves wouldn’t be nearly as compelling if we didn’t get to hear the back stories!

And if you’re like me, your ears perk up whenever you hear a hint of deliberate creation in the works.

For example, last night I heard Michael Phelps’ interview with Bob Costas after his final swim at the 2012 London Olympics:

I think a couple days into it I realized the first day that I was super tight like I just kept trying to be intense, and I guess after that I just started relaxing more. I started smiling more. And everything started falling into place. I didn’t feel that great in the water, but I just went out and raced as hard as I could and started smiling and enjoying it. – Michael Phelps

How’s that for “alignment and then”?! Way to get in your vortex, Michael!

(And congrats on your incredible career!)

Then did you hear this story from Chad Le Clos?

South African Le Clos shared in an interview that he had replayed over and over the call of Michael Phelps’ win in Beijing 2008 when Phelps made that last second surge on Milorad Cavic to steal the win for the gold.

Le Clos said he idolizes Phelps and what he’s accomplished in swimming, and he listened to the call of that race repeatedly – in seven different languages even!!

And then Le Clos did that very thing himself this year competing in the 200 meter butterfly! He made a strong late surge to barely out-touch Phelps and steal the gold from him in an event Phelps was expected to dominate.

How cool is that?! From a guy no one was really expecting anything spectacular from!

It speaks to how powerful focus and passion and scripting are.

And how about this? Ryan Lochte, visualizing the perfect race:

And we’ve seen the divers and gymnasts practicing their routines mentally with closed eyes before they step up to compete, rehearsing their success and prepping themselves for an excellent showing.

I’d love to hear your favorite stories of LOA at work with the athletes and their performances.

In the meantime, enjoy the games!

  • that was lovely, Caz.
    I’m watching the closing ceremony now, and loved this highlight from the announcers on the US women’s swim team (for the relay event):
    “The eighth and final gold for the American women ended the week just how it started: laughing and smiling all the way to the finish.” Such a treat!

  • Caz says:

    I see what you did but can’t find out how!
    Correction to the above, his dad died 14 months ago,result still the same though…and I just found this video that some of our champs made about their visualisation & psych prep…all that scripting 🙂

  • Whoa. Look what I just did. !! I always wanted to have nesting comments here! wow!!

  • Caz says:

    Ooh,ooh,another one – Tom Daley has just won bronze in the men’s 10m diving. He’s only 18 & his dad died earlier this year. When he was 9, he drew a picture of himself on the diving platform at the 2012 Olympics.

  • How about this?! US wrestler Jordan Burroughs in January of last year registered this twitter handle: @AllISeeIsGold. And won the gold in London today. Way to be deliberate!!

  • I should totally write a post about that, Namaste! That’s a very cool story. Thanks for sharing his name, I’ll track down details for a future piece.

  • Namaste says:

    Thanks for sharing these two stories, I love stories like this! I read an article recently about Joseph Sylvester, who won the $100,000 Virginia lottery twice in the last 3 months. He’s using deliberate creation (evident from his comments) and isn’t aware of it =)

  • “Whoever he IS”?! Sacrilege, GorgeouSophie!! lol
    He’s also known (in my world) as Hit Hotness. Seriously. Whew. Ryan!! oh my.

  • GorgeouSophie says:

    *snigger* What are you two like! He does seem rather cute though, whoever he is!

  • Oh, that was worth the watch, Nancy! “Swimming fast and feeling good.” (Were those shoes for real?)
    Thanks for posting. 🙂

  • …OK, I know this is an ad, but still…it shows how focus + action (that you believe will HELP you move toward your goal and increase your confidence)works together to create success:
    Many blessings,

  • I’m sorry, Jeannette, I know there was a point to this post, but I just got lost in Ryan’s eyes…

  • “Yes, I can.” Ha! What a great belief to have on board!!
    Love that, Caz. Thanks for sharing – had not seen that interview!

  • Caz says:

    Jess Ennis was interviewed the night before she won the heptathlon
    “Can you you BELIEVE how well it’s going?” Yes, I can,” she replied. “I’ve worked very hard”
    And when her mum was interviewed, she had this to say:
    “I was a bit cautious at first because I didn’t have anything to compare it with. But it soon became clear that Jessica’s main focus has always been that she wants to be the best in the world.
    “She’s so positive. If she wants something she’ll go out and get it and that’s taught me a lot, because I’m not always like that.”
