Transformation Tuesday – Mindset!

{{ TRANSFORMATION TUESDAY }}

Last year during the Super Bowl, things were a little rough if you were a New England fan (which I am)… you probably remember, as it’s still being talked about 😉

I was in an establishment full of people who started to lose a little faith, down by 25 points in the 4th. I don’t blame them; it was ugly. But I was one of the ones that stayed calm, and believed.

Now, I don’t say that to puff myself up or put anyone else down, but rather to show a TRANSFORMATION within {MYSELF}.

See, years prior, sports and trailing scores always put me in a negative mindset. I know, you would think as a diehard New England/Boston sports fan, I would know it isn’t over til its O V E R, as we have seen proven TIME and TIME again. But for much of my life it was hard to keep the faith in that sometimes. Most times…

Last year during the Super Bowl is one of the first experiences where I stayed completely positive, and I think we all remember what happened… we went from a quiet, sullen crowd to a LOUD and RAMBUNCTIOUS one, because we DID come from from down 25 points to WIN the Super Bowl, in truly dramatic fashion, again giving credence to ‘it is NOT over until it is OVER’, 00:00 remaining.

And I get it – it isn’t always {easy} to stay positive, but I’ll tell you this – it sure creates a {{better experience}} than writing them off, being down, and acting defeated before the clock hits 00:00. It wasn’t easy, but I told myself comebacks have been done before; this isn’t over yet. Belichick is a master, oh and I mean, you know who my quarterback is, right?! 15:00 minutes for Brady is like 3 hours for anyone else! Let’s just call a spade a spade – that is THE GUY you want when your down!

Obviously, my staying positive doesn’t affect what happens on the field but again, I created a •M U C H• better experience for myself by BELIEVING.

And I did it again this past Sunday – it wasn’t looking good, and people were starting to get nervous, but not me. I knew things could happen. I knew it wasn’t over. I KNEW we had plenty of time and I KNEW we could do it.

{{BELIEVE}}

And we did, which got us to the Super Bowl! Do I hope this Super Bowl is a little less dramatic? … maybe!

But I also look back and appreciate how far I have come, how much work I have done on my mindset and eradicating my negative thinking… it was a HUGE feat, and I have worked really hard on it, and it’s nice to have such a fond memory of a time when it would have been E A S Y to slip back into my negative, defeatist ways, but nope, I stayed positive!

Sometimes, the biggest transformations take place •WITHIN•.
