The morning of Sept. 4, I was shocked awake by the heading "No. 1 and done?" on the cover of the "NFL Preview." I thought," What kind of support is that for our local Super Bowl champions? Sounds like the Sacramento-based McClatchy Co. has a bad case of sour grapes favoring the San Francisco 49ers!" 1 and done, indeed!
I shut down that line of thinking and focused on some fundamental truths, such as " Winners dwell on what they want, and losers dwell on what they want ... to avoid"; "If you can't think of something nice to say, people don't want to hear it"; "Good relationships ... put up or shut up!" ; "Are those words intended to predict or perpetuate?"; "Every thought is a prayer. What are you praying for now?"; "The most powerful form of prayer is FEAR - False Expectation About Reality: fear-less.";"What you conceive and believe, you can achieve ... with enough effort and help!"
No one wins the Super Bowl. Teams win the Superbowl, and the Seahawks get it. Since Sept. 4 I've been saying "Repeat, then three-peat." This September I hope to read, "Seahawks poised to three-peat!" not "2 and through?"
