Why Am I Hopeful? Come to EXPECT Success.

Colts have beaten Chiefs in the playoffs 3 of the last 11 years.

Fandom has its price. Only one team wins each year in a given sport… so, 1/32 or whatever, is pretty slim that your team is gonna win. But, you know what? This is out of your control. And I think you have to separate yourself away from the outcome. We can only control, what we can control… so concentrate on becoming the best that you can be, and expect the best.

As a Kansas City Chiefs fan, I find myself always optimistic leading up to the games… then halfway through, you just feel it slipping away. This whole situation is something that is out of my control?

There are only a few things that you can control in your life. So, you better take care of those.

Take care of your body. And you won’t need to be hopeful of good health. You can expect it, because you have prepared for it. You work out consistently.

Take care of your relationships by putting effort into the relationships you have, so you don’t have to hope that other people love you. They love you, and they know you love them. Come to expect success in your personal life.

Come to expect success in your life and everything you do, because you are constantly preparing for it.

Believe in yourself, and make yourself the best YOU that you can be. Don’t worry about the Jone’s in the world. Come to expect success.

Do the necessary steps to insure your success. Don’t hope things might happen. Demand it out of yourself to MAKE it Happen.

Now, when dealing with your sports teams. I know its tough, it certainly is for me… but you have to detach yourself from the outcomes of things that you can’t control. Even if it almost makes you cry. All you can control, is all that you can control. So, concern yourself with those things.

Seriously, as much as the Kansas City Chiefs, the Kansas Jayhawks, and the Kansas City Royals let me down and ‘Break my Heart’… and sure, it’s disappointing… but, we can’t control these things. So, control the things you can… and come to expect success.

Come to EXPECT Success.

Heh. This was tough to write, as I sit and watch the Colts beat the Chiefs in playoffs for the 3rd time in the past 11 years. Man. But I realized, hey, I can’t control this. What I do has absolutely NO bearing on the outcome of the game. Nothing. I can sit and watch poor performance, and poor play calling… but what can I do? Nothing. I can only sit in pain and misery. So, separate yourself from your fandom.

And concern yourself with things that better your life.

Come to EXPECT SUCCESS. Go get it.

Jim Mora had a few comments on the game.


I didn’t realize that he was such a Chiefs fan!

Time to focus on an extremely successful 2007!
