What is the difference between winning and losing, or succeeding and failing? The difference in the results you get is the state of mind you are in at the moment you fail or succeed. For example there are empowering states of mind that tap into our real power like: courage, certainty, confidence, joy, love, positiveness and faith. And there are destructive disempowering states like: fear, lack of faith, doubt, anxiety, frustration, hatred and confusion. So the results we get at the moment we are doing something depends on the state of mind you are in, if you are in a empowering state most likely you will succeed but if you are in a disempowering state most likely you will fail.So the key to any success is learning to know how to direct and manage your mental states. One simple method I use to help my clients who are in a disempowering state of mind is simply to take a deep breath and while holding it replace that negative thinking by replacing it with a positive empowering state. For example if you are feeling frustrated while holding your breath close your eyes and think or remember a time when you where feeling joyful or happy, try to remember the whole situation, remember the people, faces, situation etc. the more details the better. Now try to stand the way you were standing, smile the way you were smiling, laugh the way you were laughing, if you do this and repeat the process a few times your state of mind will change and your frustration will be gone. It's a small but efficient exercise in mind control.

Or just say to yourself: i will do this, i can do this, i am strong, i am capable, whatever, say something about you that is the opposite to what you are feeling.
For example, if you are feeling weak say: i am strong, if you are feeling fear, say: i am courageous, if you are afraid that some kind of event happens, you say to yourself: i love my life even if (....) happens
