In Response to Re: Where Do You Go When You're At The Top Of Mt. Everest?
[QUOTE]Laz.....OMG!!...welcome back....you've been missed, my friend! Lady B sends her regards and is asking about your gorgeous cat.... Now about our favorite QB: has it occurred to you that TB may be suffering from a crisis of confidence that stems from the fact that he is still thinking about his knee and that is affecting everything he does on the field - technique, calling signals, etc. He has to climb Everest again....while he is thinking of the toughest portion of the climb...the last 1,000 feet where there is no oxygen...he is still stuck in base camp trying to decide which route to take...the southeast which is the "easier" one....or the "northeast" route which is the least-taken route and is what we expect out of Tom Brady... Until he faces down whatever reservations he may have about being on the field, forget about climbing Everest (aka winning the SB)...he may not be an effective mountain climber (aka nfl-qb) ever again..... Will he overcome said crisis...until proven otherwise, I think so....

, and B
- First, Thanx for the Love ALL. No hiding in shame lol...Like I said earlier, I'm trying to take reality checks these days (sorta); To realize this is
Cyberspace-Famous Freud quip-"ALL I need in this world is a trusted friend and a hated enemy
,"-Well, I'm trying no longer to get worked up about fantasy monikers, second person realities, and trying to put all my Love and Hate towards real things...less road signs, more hills and curves; a tough road to take for any of us in a post modern world.
: Your Post-Recently I came across a NY bestseller, kind of an inspirational read that many of You might have heard of, called "The Secret
." Someone should send it to Brady. It delves into certain immortal truths that we all should perhaps contemplate more often. The simple jist of it is such that "Thoughts are REAL THINGS
." We've all seen and heard of people with ESP, Don't believe in that? Well, We've all heard of how simple energy, no matter the form it takes, can never, be created or destroyed, It's just maleable, ever-changing... Don't buy into that? O.k., We've at least all been around certain people who exude an air of confidence, or have extreme sadness and/or anger, and YOU, yourself feel it in some way or anoher. Simply put, these things are catchy.
And onwards... The main premise is that, "Like attracts Like
." What this means is that within these 'things that are thoughts', Positivity attracts Positive, Negativity attracts the negative. The Book gives the example of people who have gone from dirt poor to Billionaires, then lost it all, Then have worked their way back up to great wealth again. Point is, These people formulated their will and all their conscious and unconcious thoughts, strivings towards, or what-have-you, Towards ONE singularity-for them, I was the making of money. Then
just as they made their vast fortune, they let suddenly let the thought of losing their wealth into their heads, or just keeping it at all, and bam, ALL gone. Without their wealth now, They had nothing to lose, and set to work once more on that simple one-sidedness of getting it back, without any of the fear, the negativity of loss...
Sorry guys, Didn't go into this Frontburner discourse as a Book Review, Belenus kinda has that way upon me... Anyway, IF You're unable to read between the lines, Here's the Brady and Patriot's part
: It seems since Brady and Belichick's great fortunes of the mid to early decade, ALOT of their energy has gone into Trying NOT to get beat, rather than Trying simply to win...Heck even IF it's not alot of their energy, even IF it's just letting in the negativity of, "We CanNOT lose," rather than, "We WILL Win," the difference is appreciable. As it was stated, Thoughts have no, ZERO concept of Right or Wrong, or in this instance, grammatical conception. Meaning (according to the novel): IF You say to yourself, "I WILL Look good today
," Your thoughts hear, "I WILL Look GOOD today
," BUT IF
You're saying, "I WILL not look bad today
," Your thoughts hear the same reciprocal thought, "I Will NOT be GOOD today
Same goes for Brady throwing the football to the other players that he's no doubt influencing (like ANY of the team players/leaders): IF He's (Brady for example) going into the process of, I hope I don't get hit or injured, OR I hope He doesn't drop the pass, OR I hope we don't just get a field goal on this drive-These THINGS will undoubtedly be no just more likely to occur, But rather, and just as expectanctly (in one's head) become that certainty.
Again, For those that aren't into that riveting psychological take B just had me digress upon you (just kidding B), The simple fact is that the Pats HAVE to somehow and someway (not very easy to do as a team of pro-athletes, but the winners DO do it)-come together as a team, and more importantly, start influencing each other under the singularity that, "We ARE the best his world has to offer at this sport, and Noone on this planet can even touch us
." Again, a simple impossibility IF You're at the very least, worried about getting knocked out of the game...of note
: To the poster who said the Pat's were'nt in that elite tier of The Cowboys, The Vikings, The Packers, The Redskins, The Raiders and The 49ers-I'm only
33 years old, and have only been watching Pro-Football for a little over half my life, so I don't know much about those guys except that a) I think their still in the League, and b) my team most often beats them, so c) who cares who they are?
