Hey Lou, how do I go about getting mentally prepared for Nobles’ Day?

Young grasshopper, in order to leave the field on Saturday with the sweet taste of victory on your tongue, you must keep your eyes on the prize. Whether an ISL Championship is on the line, or it is just another game, focus is the key to a successful Nobles day conquest. At the end of the day, you have to play your game just like you would any in other one. The only difference is that the adrenaline will be flowing and that the heat of fierce competition will seep through your veins. “If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten.” –Tony Robbins. Play your game.
As far as preparation goes, make sure to eat a balanced breakfast full of fluids and lots of good carbs for energy. Go out there and leave every ounce of sweat on the field. When you wake up on Saturday morning, you have to look yourself in the mirror and say, “I look like a champion, and I am going to leave it all out there today for my team.” Have a winning attitude. Remember the great Mustangs that came before you, and work to continue their legacy. As far as mental preparation goes, I would suggest listening to pump up music with a mix of some DMX and Beethoven. Watching motivational videos on YouTube is a great way to get pumped up. When you get off the bus at Nobles, breath in the air around you and feel the orange and blue blood gallop through your body. Never back down; pursue victory until you cannot stand anymore.
On Friday, go up to someone you haven’t talked to before and very sincerely wish them luck at Nobles day. Sometimes a small gesture of kindness is all that one needs before the inferno of competition burns brightly.
As the great Mr. Keating from Dead Poet’s Society instilled, “You gotta do more. You gotta be more!” Strive to go out there on the field and make that extra pass or run that extra yard. Whatever it may be, go hard or go home. At the end of the day, if you are not determined, what can you do? You must believe in yourself and your teammates.
I will be watching from the sidelines on Saturday, and I hope my advice will get you fired up to give it your all and go out there to fight the good fight and bring victory back home. Go forth and conquer! Best of luck and let’s go Mustangs!!!!!
With love and kindness, yours truly,
