So I have been in Mongolia Land for 24 hours and the sad thing is: I slept most of the time. The travel and jet lag hit me hard and I think I went outside for a total of 3minutes yesterday. So what are my thoughts of Mongolia? Well, my hotel is in the middle of the city, so there isn't really anything pretty to look at. I can see huge mountains in the distance that look like they have potential. The hotel is fair, WIFI is only in the lobby and only my phone works down there- so I will be posting this blog after everything all goes down- probably when I am back in the USA.
Pre-competition I usually have something insightful to say, and honestly, all I really want to do is compete. I have trained hard all summer long, and no matter what happens if I put in my absolute 100% I should be happy with my results. I got to keep reminding myself that this is only the beginning of my four year journey to Rio, and that not everything is going to go exactly my way. If it was a smooth and easy road everyone could do this, and I am ready for anything and everything.
I was given a book before this trip, it is called "THE SECRET" and I have only read the first 10 pages but I already know why he has given this book to me. Something that really stood out to me was- "If you see it in your mind, you're going to hold it in your hands." Your thoughts are so powerful. Everything you think honestly affects you. That is why I believe it is extremely important to stay positive in any situation that you are given, because in the end something positive will happen to you. "Your thoughts become things."- And I will make the Olympic team and I will hold a medal in my hand. If I think like that for the next four years what is honestly going to stop me?
