We need a certain amount of stress to encourage us to attain our goals, however, we want this to be directed towards positive action.  By using your mind in the right way, both your conscious and your subconscious mind can find safe routes and solutions, leaving you free to enjoy your life, be successful at what you want to achieve and allow your body and mind to function in harmony.

Doubts and uncomfortable feelings are there to encourage you to look at all your options, to help you make the correct decisions. We need to listen to these feelings as they give us valuable insight about ourselves. For any performance or action to be effective you first need a clear thought and positive mind set to make the most of your potential, whether it be in the sports field, public domain, exams, work, relaxation or everyday life.
