Become The Dragon


Recommended Posts

The time has come to clear your mind.

Find a quiet place, choose a comfortable position and focus on your breath. Close your eyes and turn your attention to your breath. Notice how it feels as it enters and leaves your body. You don't need to control your breath; simply observe it.

Thoughts and emotions are like clouds passing through the sky. Some are light and fluffy, while others are dark and stormy. These difficult emotions and memories—misery, loss, heartbreak, letdowns—are like those dark clouds. They're real, they're here, and they can feel incredibly heavy.

The first step is acknowledgement. Notice these dark clouds. Don't pretend they're not there. This isn't about denial. It's about saying, "Yes, we've had many years of disappointment. Yes, it's been tough."

But don't stop there. The next step is crucial: don't get entangled in these clouds. Don't let them define the team. Yes, they're part of your sky, but they're not all of it. There are also clear blues and stunning sunsets; victories, camaraderie, growth, resilience.

When you find yourself ruminating on a painful past or a series of losses, gently but firmly guide your attention back to the present moment. This is where your breath comes in — it serves as an anchor to the here and now.

As your body relaxes, visualize yourself in the middle of a football stadium. The field is empty, and the stands are silent. This is your domain, the Jets' home. This stadium has seen losses and victories, it has heard cheers and sighs. All of these experiences have shaped you.

Now, imagine a dragon soaring above the stadium. It's powerful, it's confident, it's the embodiment of fearlessness and strength. This is the new Jets, the Dragon. As you watch it, feel its energy seeping into you, filling you with a renewed sense of purpose and determination.

Imagine the dragon lands onto the field, its presence commanding and awe-inspiring. This dragon is not just a symbol of power, but also of transformation. It has risen from the ashes of past defeats, just like you are doing now. It has learned from past mistakes, it has grown stronger, and it has risen above.

Visualize the Jets as this dragon. Feel the power coursing through your veins, the strength in your wings, the fire in your belly. This is the Jets. You are no longer the Jets, you are the Dragon. Feel the shift in your mindset, from fear to courage, from defeat to victory, from being the underdog to being the top dog.

Now, visualize your first game as the Dragon. Feel the energy of the crowd, the anticipation, the excitement. You are no longer the team that others look down upon. You are the team that others fear to face.

You are the Dragon.
