There’s no question that no matter what the field, the mental game matters just as much (if not more) than the physical. Two time Olympic medalist and World Judo Champion Jimmy Pedro certainly believes that visualization and mental goals for success are an absolute necessity for anyone who is truly serious about accomplishing something great.
According to Jimmy Pedro, goals must be real. They can’t be hopes or dreams, or it just doesn’t do you any good. He advocates the need to see your goals, to visualize them, and to truly believe you can be the person that accomplishes them all.
