Good day, Brave hearts!
The wondrous world awakens you and this day of glory calls you. Hail, you skilled and mighty human.
Feel your strong, toughened body. Each muscle responds to the call. The body, so firmly controlled, obedient to that masterful mind, that intense will, that demanding purpose. The body, who no longer wails, rest, pain and injury! The body, silenced and controlled. The body, who’s insistent complaints of fatigue, pain, cold, hunger and heat are now quashed to the demand of the superior mind. Mind over matter is mind over body. Supremely controlled, the body performs dutifully to the demanding mind. Lean and perfect, this body, the only vessel of the mind and the soul, will perform.
Now, the masterful mind, visualizes the result. It sees it’s body execute that turn, complete that course, hit the target. The masterful mind outperforms the body. The specific focus to a goal of achievement. The narrow view, where the world is shut out and the only perception of the senses is the play.
The superior mind, that focused aptitude of skill and courage. Shut out the chaos of the world, concentrate on the objective of this goal. This is the challenge of the day. To visualize the outcome and to control the persistent nagging of the body. To see the result and to demand performance to it. To see the finish, one step at a time, to enact and recreate the desired results. Repeat the performance and follow through. Over and over, until the body understands the training and properly learns the sequence. The focus of the mind, so superior, so specified. An aptitude at it’s highest, driven to excellence. The exhaustive play, the painful concentration, the focus, the focus, don’t loose the focus. A battle won, or a battle lost in the simple shift of focus, loss of clarity or loss of concentration. A distraction, a diversion, a deliberate ruse to disrupt, annoy, upset or abuse, however simple, but perfectly planned to divert attention and set the player off their mark.
Find your finest aptitude great human and focus your fine and brilliant mind on it’s goal. No failure there. A strong and focused mind, a trained and willing body, a spirit to overcome the obstacle. Come brave hearts, to the joy of success, to the thrill of achievement and to the duty to yourselves to live your lives well. Strengthen your bodies, strengthen your minds, increase your spirit, plan your destiny, focus on your goal. Awaken your spirit to the fulfillment of dreams and to the quest for more life, more living.
Call your colleagues around you, develop your support group, find your like-minded, encouraging allies.
This is your life!
Hail, bravehearts! To lives well lived, to destinies achieved and to a call to the order of the brilliant mind.
Hail brave hearts, to your success!
