There are so many facets to this photo that I adore, taken almost two weeks ago. @gpcaustralia #sydneycup
I wanted to firstly withhold my impetuous nature whilst I relished in the typical post-competition "high" and all it's fruition, so I could take the time for:
Now time has elapsed, and what goes up must come down I wanted to voice my thoughts all while in a traquil environment (such as by the pool in Thailand) and with an unceremonious mind.
I've also forgotten how much i love to write in this moment.
Anyway... This picture incapsulates that brief sense of overwhelming stillness and silence (and yet what feels like eternity) where it is like you have this esoteric, recondite moment with your own self that is complex to explain and yet so simple.
My thought pattern went little like this: 'Here is where I must remain certain and trust my ability. Rely on every bit of training I have put into this. Bank on every rep, every set that has lead me here- to assess and measure my supreme strength- How cool is that! Off topic. Okay think. Quickly. Erase any self-doubt that may paralyse my mind and hinder any thought pattern. Remember. Each and every fine detail. Details- hip angle, knees, brace, muscular contraction. Contract. Yes. Contract everything! I have been here before I can do it again. Breathe. Dont forget that...' I'm sure most of us who have been in this positon might know what I am talking about. But for those who may be unfamilar. There is a reason I have developed such passion for #powerlifting. It's these moments we have with ourselves that really make it special.
This translates into life. Where we must put faith in ourselves. Commit. Attempt everything with 100 percent effort. Practice. Invest in you. Be all in. No 70/30 business!
To some close-minded/short-sighted people this may seem just like going in and lifting some heavy weight. It's so, so much more than just that. Well, to me it is anyway.😂 Id love to teach my passion to anyone who is interested.
