Mental Fortitude

"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.

ATTITUDE

I ran across this company motto awhile back from Active Sports Inc. It is powerful and speaks volumes, I wanted to share... ATTITUDE "In addition to friendship, attitude is one of the few things in life where we have a true choice. We cannot change what is fated to happen or the actions of events or other people.
