Today will be a great day, it’s all about projecting your thoughts.
I started today with this thought & ended up doing a bunch ride with Bradley Wiggins, 4th in 2009 Tour de France and Gold at the Beijing Olympics.
As Kevin Costner famously said in the movie, “If you build it, he will come.”.
Well think of your mind like the corn field in the movie, about believing that great things can happen. If you truly believe, it will happen.
Well after waking at this morning, eyes barely open and squinting, I look in the mirror (not a pretty site at 5.00am) and said “today will be a great day”
After running our Melbourne Bootcamp, headed to the office, fired up the computer and started to compose a blog. I went to Twitter to make sure that I had reached the 140 character limit when I quickly looked at the Twitters (I follow some very busy twitterers which equates to a twitter every 2 seconds being displayed).
To my amazement I saw a twitter from Bradley Wiggins, forth overrall winner in this years Tour de France asking “Long Shot anyone fancy a ride at 3.30 from St Kilda” at the very top of twitters.
Now I only follow 2 Pro cyclists, Bradley Wiggins and Lance Armstrong, and I rarely read very Twitter otherwise I would need an extra 24 hours in the day. I replied with a suggested meeting place, bradley replied back with a venue he was familiar with, well 40 other cyclists meet up for the ride as well.
Two and a half hours later we returned and I even managed to get a quick interview.
The funny thing is Bradley would not have continued for riding for 90 kms had no one had shown up as roads can be quite dangerous when riding alone. So for Bradley there was a belief that he would find people to ride with.
So it may seem a bit weird and strange but the very first thought when you ride from your unconscious state in the morning (or afternoon/evening if your a shift worker) is today will be a great day and start projecting positive thoughts
