"YOUR MIND IS A POWERFUL THING. WHEN YOU FILL IT WITH POSITIVE THOUGHTS, YOUR LIFE WILL START TO CHANGE. (Author Unknown)
This past weekend, I had a big race on Saturday. It was a brand new track, so I took off school Friday to practice, so that I would be prepared. Friday was not a good day...mentally I wasn't confident in my riding. I tried to ride hard and fast, but the thoughts in my head were making me go slower physically. I ended the day feeling discouraged.
RACE DAY/ I set out with a NEW mind set.... the first race I was at the gate happy and joking with friends, and all around in a better position in my head. I was feeling confident and when the gate dropped I was off!! The difference in my riding today from the day before was crazy. I went on to qualify for Regionals.
IF YOU put yourself down in your mind and think negative thoughts, YOU WILL get negative results. This is not just about racing....this is about LIFE!!! You HAVE to think positive and have a strong mental fortitude to conquer anything. Your ONLY limits are the ones you put on YOURSELF!
