    psyching up at short notice

    Hey guys, i have a contest tommorow and i need to get psyched up, because at the moment i just cant be bothered. Which is appalling because im the one who is organising transport etc.
    I have had a lot of uni work on recently, along with the stress of impending graduation and the real world. Add girlfriend trouble and you have major contest apathy. Another problem is that most of my team are injured so there are only a few of us going, none of our best fighters.

    Normally before a contest i am totally up for it, so this is very out of character

    anyone else ever had this problem?

    if i cant get focussed then i will be tempted not to fight at all, as i will surely lose.

    any advice?

    Sorry to hear of your troubles. What kind of contest is it?

    As for advice: Watch your favorite UFC or Pride beatdowns. Download the MMA highlights clip from this site's download section. Listen to some aggressive music - Children of Bodom usually puts me in the mood to beat someone up.
    There are no wrong threats, only wrong answers. (Strategy game truism)

    try a battle scene from braveheart

    or some beatdown music like slipknot or chimara

    or think of your opponant anally raping your mom that could do the trick

    it is just a judo comp, so it isn't even violent

    it will be a weight categoried round robin in the morning, then a team event in the afternoon, then a ceileidgh at night

    freddie foxx is now on the stereo, full blast and i will watch some cro cop highlights soon-- dont have braveheart (despite being scottish)

    Your brothers are injured, Drunken.

    They are counting on you.

    Nothing matters but the contest.

    It is where your true worth is made known.

    All else is distraction. Focus warrior. Focus in your mindseye.

    You are the Fighter.

    You will forget all else and do this.

    No one can stand in your way.

    YOU WILL SUCCEED.

    YOU WILL BE VICTORIOUS. ..... FIGHT DESTROY WIN
