Renewed Dedication

Circumstances have conspired
to keep me away from the pool table
for more than a week.

Today I played for seven hours...

Over the past two years of part-time focus
I have achieved a winning record
against strong competition.

And I know I can go so much deeper!

I have superior knowledge, creativity, strategy.
I continue to learn and practice and improve.
And, I have a Goal.

I have FIVE MONTHS to prepare for the test.
What will I do to achieve my goal?
What price will I pay,
with no Guarantee of Reward?
What number of hours will I work?
What other challenges will I endure?
How bad do I want it?

I can not know what will happen.
But I know what I have done in the past.
I know what I can do.
I have very good judgment.

In the past I have achieved other great Goals.
Some of them requiring exceptional focus,
and creativity, sense of touch, skill, practice,
high intelligence, judgment...

So, the signs are favorable.
Victory is possible.

I will enjoy that moment!

Hi Mike,
I'm having almost identical thoughts about where I'm at and where I want to be at the US Amateur qualifier. Let's get together and play some sets following the qualifier format.
