As far as I know we have the same amount of time each day.
How the day is spent is the result of our decisions made. Without our daily commitments we might feel that things are happening to us however staying true to our daily promises will create a feeling of power.
We can only take control of the day by honoring our set path and following through with belief it is bringing us closer to our goal.
We are going to lose the game tomorrow. If that is our pledge then the game will serve no real purpose of competing. The decision has been made that something is going to happen to us, in this case a loss.
On the other hand, I may choose to state; we are going to give our best efforts in competition tomorrow and a win will only be deserved by staying committed to this…My desire is to win!
Our self-declarations put us in a position of power.
Understanding that “long days” are a decision of ours and to find peace we must realize that we are in control of the longest and shortest of days.
Yours in soccer,
