Jayhawks UnstoppableThe power of affirmation turned out to be slightly stronger than the magic of Cinderella Sunday afternoon in Detroit. The Kansas Jayhawks defeated 2008’s Cinderella Davidson 59-57.

As reported in the Kansas City Star, KU coach Bill Self has been delivering a powerful affirmation to his team: “You are unstoppable!”

In an outstanding article titled For KU’s Bill Self, This Moment is Everything, Kansas City Star writer Joe Posnanski wrote:

“To understand how much today’s NCAA Tournament game means to Kansas basketball coach Bill Self, you first have to understand this: Every single day, in one way or another, he tells his players that they are unstoppable.

Every day. Sometimes he yells it during practice. Sometimes he tells them in the locker room before the game. Sometimes he announces it on a bus ride. Sometimes he just pulls a player aside, wraps an arm around the player’s shoulder, whispers it in his ear. Always, though, the message remains.

You cannot be stopped. You cannot be blocked out. You cannot be screened. You are too strong. You are too tough. You are too fast. You have come too far. You have worked too hard. You have sacrificed too much.

You are unstoppable!”

In a year when the NCAA tournament’s big shots wound up on top of the heap, this tournament was not without its incarnation of Cinderella. Tiny Davidson College came into Sunday’s game against the Kansas Jayhawks with 25 straight victories and consecutive victories over “major conference” champions Georgetown and Wisconsin.

For most of the game Sunday, it looked as if Cinderella might punch her ticket to next week’s Final Four in San Antonio. A host sharp shooters led by tournament phenom Stephen Curry and a tenacious defense kept the top-seeded Jayhawks baffled and off balance all afternoon.

Kansas was sparked by senior Sasha Kaun who scored 13 points and grabbed six rebounds. At times, Kaun seemed to be the one Jayhawk really willing to mix it up with the scrappy Davidson team. 

In the end, the Jayhawk nation was forced to hold its collective breath while Davidson’s Jason Richards launched a potential game-winning three-pointer at the buzzer. The shot was wide left and KU survived its toughest challenge of the tournament. 

Kansas became the fourth and final #1 seed to advance to next weekend’s Final Four – a first since the NCAA began seeding teams in 1979. #1 seeds UCLA, North Carolina, and Memphis all comfortably advanced to college basketball’s biggest weekend. That set the scene for perhaps the most history-rich Final Four ever assembled.

Kansas coach Bill Self, who had led Kansas, Illinois, and Tulsa to a combined five Elite Eight appearances without a Final Four appearance, finally cleared that hurdle Sunday and reached the Final Four.

At least for another week, Self and his team are, indeed, unstoppable!

You’re unstoppable too! It doesn’t mean you always win or that you are perfect, but you have within you a tremendous power to aspire to and be more than you are. As Bill Self says, “You have worked too hard. You have sacrificed too much. YOU are unstoppable!”

Be positive Be peaceful Be prosperous!

Today’s Affirmation:

“I believe wholeheartedly that I am part of the solution in my life and in my world.”

Over the past several months, I’ve been conducting an Internet survey on how people use affirmations. My goal is eventually to use the research to write a book about affirmations.

I’ve been a little surprised by the results of the survey. Only 43% of people who use affirmations report that they are using some form of audio affirmation. Of those using audio affirmations, less than half are making use of mp3 affirmations. That means only 18% of affirmation users are taking advantage of the MP3 format.

The proliferation of iPods, MP3 players, and MP3-capable cell phones makes it easier than ever to take affirmations and positive thoughts with you wherever you go and use them whenever you want. The great part is that you don’t even have to have an MP3 player or iPod to take advantage of it.

But why audio affirmations and specifically MP3 affirmations?

9 Reasons MP3 Affirmations Rock!

  1. Play flexibility – as compared to other audio formats, MP3 affirmations are the most flexible. They can be played on an array devices – iPods, MP3 players, MP3-capable cell phones, MP3-capable PDAs, your computer, or even burned to a CD – while tapes and CDs are limited to devices capable of playing them.
  2. Select flexibility – MP3 affirmations are often available as individual tracks. This allows you to select only the specific affirmations you want rather than having to pay for affirmations you will never use.
  3. Save money – as compared with any other types of audio affirmations, MP3 downloads save money. They can often be purchased as individual downloads like a song from iTunes rather than as expensive packages.
  4. Mirror negative information – audio affirmations mirror the way you get most of your negative information (through sound). Audio affirmations directly counter the negative audio information that accumulates as you go through the day.
  5. Save time – audio affirmations – unlike read affirmations, visualization board affirmations, subliminal software, and spoken affirmations – do not require you to set aside time to use them. Your full concentration is not required. They are perfect for multi-tasking. I often listen to affirmations while I’m working, exercising, or doing other activities. In fact, I find this kind of passive listening some of the most beneficial. You absorb the affirmations the way you absorb words to a song you didn’t even know you were listening to it.
  6. Increase enjoyment – listening to affirmations can be very enjoyable. This is especially true when they are set to music. You can easily create an affirmation playlists on your MP3 player or your computer’s media player or mix the affirmations in with your regular music playlists for added motivation.
  7. Privacy – with headphones audio affirmations can be used virtually anywhere without anyone else knowing what you are doing. Again, other affirmations forms do not lend themselves to this kind of privacy. Books, websites, and computer screens can all give away what you are doing.
  8. Use anywhere – with the previously mentioned portable devices, your affirmations can go with you to be used exactly when and where you need them. Take your affirmations into the locker room before the big game. Listen to them on the way to the big sales call or even while you wait for your meeting. Listen to them when you’re relaxing in the hammock. Absorb your affirmations along with “the sun” while tanning. Anyplace your portable device goes, your affirmations can follow.
  9. Better for the Environment – MP3 downloads have one very specific advantage over their CD, DVD, and cassette tape counterparts. They are far more environmentally friendly. Read this article describing the impact digital media – their production and disposal – has on the environment. Downloadable MP3 affirmations are “the green way” to get your affirmations.

The MP3 revolution can make your affirmations more effective, easier to use, and less expensive. Are you taking advantage of it?

Be peaceful Be prosperous!
