It all begins in preparation leading up to your battle or competition.
You’ve done everything mentally and physically to hone your skills
and absorb the plan for battle.
Now becomes what is at times, the most difficult part of competition.
Now is the time to prepare your heart and soul for what lies ahead.
It begins well before the game with a thought. I have heard so often that the team that wants it the most will be the victor.
There are many times I really want something, but I am not willing to buy it because it will cost more than I want to pay.
Competition is similar.
It begins with a thought, which then becomes a calculation of what you are willing to pay, and why you will pay.
That calculation brews in the secret place of your mind. There it brews as it morphs into a resolve that resembles a quiet thunder.
It stirs your mind in that secret place called the Will.
It finally explodes with passion, focus, and effort:
An effort that is selfless
An effort that cares
An effort of childlike passion
An effort that demands a state of mind that penetrates the soul
An effort based on love
“For there is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for a friend.”
Love Always Conquers!
