A short note to my friends who are still involved in Malaysian Sports or those who think they know the ills that plague our sports scenario.

While we believe that sports should be free of political influence, free of racial barriers, free of personal attacks, that really has not been the case.

Just because Lee Chong Wei lost in the final, some have questioned his committment while others have gone a step further by alleging that he fixed the final. So to all I seek you to ask yourself if its really the interest of sports you have in mind?

Each of us has a little voice in our head. It is the voice of our sub-conscious, judging self.

On a daily basis, we engage in self-talk; we comment on each situation we encounter.
We discuss events and plans in our minds. Our commentary is both positive and negative.

Positive thoughts and planning support the accomplishment of our goals.
Negative thoughts and comments undermine our self-esteem and self-confidence, and negatively impact our ability to accomplish our goals.

It is important to listen to your voice. You can change its tone by believing in yourself and in your ability to accomplish your goals and resolutions. Use this unconscious critic to positively support your goal setting success.
