Today, I thought it appropriate to examine the opposite of positive energy flow. And right now, in the heart of the MLB Playoffs, there’s no better subject than baseball.
Two nights ago, when Detroit was beating the Yankees, a relief pitcher was on the mound for the Tigers. When the pitcher felt uncertain of his next pitch, he stepped off the mound to collect his thoughts, to which the announcer wisely said: “You cannot afford to throw a pitch when you’re thinking a negative thought.”
You need clear mental focus on a positive result. Not half-focus. Not one mental picture of a strike and another of giving up a home run.
One mental picture. One thought.
What you think about BEFORE you throw a pitch is far more important than the type of pitch you throw. A positive mental picture leads to positive results most of the time. A negative mental picture leads to negative results most often.
Now let’s talk about losing.
One of the great things about sports is how, regardless of how good a team supposedly is, regardless of how they look on paper, regardless of whether or not we think victory is a “no brainer” – we still play the games.
At the beginning of this year, before the baseball season even started, pundits were saying that Boston and Philadelphia were “automatics” for the big show.
Both teams are now out of contention for the World Series.
Boston put together an unprecedented swoon in September and failed to make the playoffs.
And last night, the Phillies, who were already arrogantly looking forward to their next opponent, a major mistake in any endeavor, lost the best-of-
five-games series to the St. Louis Cardinals ( a Wild Card, no less).
I, as self-proclaimed Zen Master of Picks, chose the Cards over the Phillies before the series started. Incidentally, I also picked the Tigers over the Yankees and the Brewers over the Diamondbacks. The only wrong pick I made was taking the Rays over Texas (which I attribute to wishful thinking rather than gut-level psychic skills).
Last year, I picked the eventual winner of every series, including the World Series.
Although my picks aren’t infallible, my success percentage is far better than baseball experts who’ve played, coached, analyzed and critiqued the game for decades. They’re even better than Paul Reddick, the Master of MPH, and a Hall-of-Famer combined – (by the way, Paul owes me two steak dinners for betting me that the Red Sox would make the playoffs.).
How can this be?
It’s quite simple: I sense the energy fields surrounding the teams.
I do not read their stats or look at who’s best on paper. All I do is sense the “field.”
No, not the playing field. The energy field of the various teams.
By doing this, I can pick the winner at least 80% of the time. I think any Vegas gambler would be happy to have an accuracy rating like that,
Now, there are times when I start to question whether or not my picks are correct. Before the start of last night’s game, for example, I asked myself, “How can you pick the Cards to win with Halladay on the mound?”
My answer: We play the games for a reason.
Halladay pitched a gem of a game – and lost, 1-0.
More importantly, though, if you looked at his eyes in the 6th inning, despite pitching superbly, the lights were dim. He already looked defeated.
I called a friend and asked him to look at Halladay’s eyes. “In one word,” I said, “describe what you sense?”
“Beaten down,” he said.
Two words, and he was correct.
Two innings later, I called him again. “Did you see the expression on the catcher’s face?” I said. “Did you see his eyes?”
“Yep,” he said.
“What did you see?”
Keep in mind the score was still 1-0 at this point. Yet, the eyes of the Phillies gave it away. They were done.
Not only that, the Phillies’ players energy field gave it away long before the game even started.
The Phillies energy was already flowing downhill before the playoffs even started.
Question: Could their energy field be changed? Could their FLOW be adjusted?
Question: How long to change the direction of a person or a team’s energy field?
Answer: Not long at all. In less than 30 minutes if the person is willing to listen, learn and apply.
I’ll be showing how to reverse the flow or increase the positive flow at my November 4-5 seminar in Clearwater, Florida, called THE FLOW.
Why not grab a seat and prepare yourself for the moment in time in which your life goes into FLOW in a much more positive way than ever before.
