" In sports, mental imagery is used primarily to help you get the best out of yourself in training and competition. The developing athletes who make the fastest progress and those who ultimately become their best make extensive use of mental imagery. They use it daily as a means of directing what will happen in training, and as a way of pre-experiencing their best competition performances."

I've got hope, I've got dreams and I have aspirations.
I don't need to climb mountains; I don't need to build nations.
What I do need is the courage to look deep inside,
Cos I'm me and from me I know I can't hide.
I don't wish to fly, I'm quite happy to glide.
I am who I am and I'll be me with pride.
