The Internal Martial Arts of Archery
In every Martial art, there is an external expression of the art as well as an internal one. This week we have been focusing on the internal martial art in the form of "positive self-talk". Why wait for others to praise us?
All of the JOAD archers wrote a few positive affirmations on an index card and I asked them to start looking at them daily. I gave them some inspiration in the form of examples such as I am Strong, I Shoot Straight (our motto), my practice methods are sound and will get results, and I can adapt and overcome in any situation, to name a few. We have been working hard on our external art getting ready for the tournament and turning the focus inward was in order as well.
All of the research on high achievement points to the fact that there is great truth in what you believe you can achieve as well as what you think, so why not believe and think about how amazing and whole you are? It's the truth!
See you on the Range!
