Yesterday prior to the start of the Tour De France I watched on TV how they literally catalogued all the Sporting downfalls suffered by the Brits this year.
Cricket to World Cup and Wimbledon.
I also read (what I have read several times before in different books) there is a possibility the Great Depression could have been avoided if it wasn’t for the collective negative consciousness at the time.
Could people focusing on fear and doubt and speculated and calculated accounts in the press only escalated the negative down turn?
As I mentioned earlier I read this a long time ago and it has always played on my mind, could our recent economic downturn been avoided if there wasn’t so much focus from the media etc ‘how we were all going to hell in a hand cart’?
The two presenters jokingly quirked how the Prime Minister David Cameron was to believed to be rocking up to the Grande Depart as all hopes were out for other events. They joked he went to the World Cup but obviously were out of that but then he went to Wimbledon but now Andy Murray is out of that so I believe he’s coming to the Tour de France.
I jeered at my TV (you know I’m not the only one …. I’m not the only one am I? Oh who cares !! any way) “Hey guys cut it out, jinx it why don’t you !!!
Well now, unfortunately it is all history and Mark Cavendish is out of the Tour De France.
I won’t deny I am gutted but as Mark humbly refers to in his Guardian interview he has friends returning from Afghanistan or who have lost limbs so compared to that not having excruciatingly exciting sprint finishes to watch is small fry.
And there’s always next year !!
But just a warning guys because as I have read in “As a Man Thinketh” by James Allen this morning “A person is limited only by the thoughts he chooses” or as T D Jakes said on Super Soul Sunday “I Am no greater than the thoughts I think”.
So lets have a ‘Collective Consciousness of unlimited potentiality’ and believe that Everything is Possible, especially greatness in everything we put our attention on. After all it all a case of perception. Something is only good or bad because we label it that way.
