Of course, they have some of the best players but they also have ones who ooze confidence – and optimism.
That’s how they manage to win games when seemingly dead and buried. They simply keep believing. They stay positive and trust themselves to deliver.
At the end of a week dedicated to Mental Health awareness that’s no bad thing for all of us to remember.
Optimism is another key element of good health and enabling us to achieve feats – in all walks of life – that we might otherwise fail at.
It reduces stress and anxiety – something most people have encountered in lockdown – it’s good for the cardiovascular and, in turn, helps prevents injuries and more serious illness, such as heart disease.
Some of you might have been doing longer and tougher workouts than ever before – like a first lengthy bike ride in years.
Tackle this with a negative attitude, then it’s something you’ll struggle with, and you’ll be turning around barely before you even get started.
Jump on the bike, however, with the attitude that you can succeed and complete whatever distance you are attempting – and you’ll be amazed how that will help keep you going during the tougher moments.
Thereafter, you’ll be flying. The return leg will feel downhill all the way as you speed home.
Stay safe and healthy!
