The Power of Mindset
I am still riding high from that win of the West Indies Cricket team in India of the 2016 World T20 Championship.
That the men’s team and the women’s team both won makes it all the more sweeter.
As I watched the video of the men’s team celebration in Eden Gardens and continuing on the bus onway to the hotel, it hit me. The power of Mindset and positive visualization.
One of the players and an aspiring DJ, made a song called “Champion” .. Wi a champion “. This song has been the theme song of the team and is done with a specific dance at every opportunity for celebration.
That stunning victory in the last over despite the odds, was inevitable. As self declared champions, they had to find a way to win. Hitting four sixes to win just had to happen.
As I watch, I declared it myself but just couldn’t believe it was happening.
In contrast I am noting that the Bangladesh team had the batsman with the highest score in the tournament and the bowler taking the most wickets in the tournament, yet they lost the match that would have taken them to the semifinals. It was a match which they lost in the final over. You could say they snatched defeat out of victory.
As a new comer, did they not have the belief? Did India the home team who defeat them have the stronger belief?
These are the things that came to me as I though about this Championship and the outcomes.
Having the right Mindset and positive vision of what you want to achieve , no matter what it looks like are absolutely essential to reaching your goals. As they say, see your self there, live the dream before it even happens. Give gratitude for it as if you already have it.
I may not have a song but I am really working at having that mindset and keeping a vision alive with gratitude.
How do you keep your vision and goals alive?
