Predictions at this site are not written with the purpose for betting. Do this at your own risk and discretion. Life is choices and changes often, based on one’s thoughts and choices. Predictions and analysis at this site will give you a glimpse into thoughts and choices and how important they are in our performance in life. An insider look into the background thoughts collectively and individually as they relate to winning or losing and building excellence in performance.
All things are interconnected. Our bodies and our minds and our spirits have no separation. They participate as a unit in everything from lifting a glass of water to drink, to our daily work processes; whatever it is we do. Here you will see the three operating as a collective in sports.
If one hones one’s ability to listen to the spiritual aspect in self “actively”, you will benefit in all ways; be it in sports, relationships, career, business success, self development, health and happiness, and peace of mind (priceless.)
Heralding the next frontier in Sports is the integration (and full utilization) of body, mind and spirit to maximize performance and support greater health and well being.
I can empathize with the German team when after doing so well and performing so strongly for many games, when they lost to Spain and had their confidence shaken a bit. In my case, making predictions, I was also so sure that Germany would win and after such a number of accurate predictions in the World Cup, getting the German/Spain game wrong, was also a bit of a shock to the system. Though I know that nobody can perform at 100% all the time, that’s impossible, it can take one aback and shake one up some. I understand fully where the German team are coming from and how they’re still in recovery.
New updates are in, as its hit the news that Paul the Octopus has chosen Germany to win in Third Place Finals. A new drama is unfolding. How will that affect the team/s and the confidence levels and their mental climate? Will it impact the game?
Update since I wrote the Uruguay/Germany game post:
As I newly learned about the latest news of Paul the Octopus’ latest pick of the German flag to win, I asked about its impact.
Question: Will the Octopus predicting a German win, and their subsequent belief in this myth and the superstition, now give the team enough of a boost to believe they can overcome and beat Uruguay? Will it impact at all, how the German team performs?
Answer: Yes, it could (turn things around for the German team), indeed. Their lack of confidence in themselves needed this boost and now they have one, albeit it from a sea creature that is used to picking around seaweed not flag posts! So yes , belief in the myth, could give Germany the added and necessary boost it really needs to see past this last flawed game with Spain. Will it be enough, you’ll have to check back in closer to the game to observe any subtle changes.
Oh Paul, you didn’t! :-) (Happy for Germany though, that they’re getting an added boost.) Now you do need to check back in for updates! I’ll look at this whole situation again and how the teams/game look, about an hour before the game starts.

I will try to post an analysis on the Finals game, Netherlands vs. Spain. Check back in before that game begins.
Below is the game/team analysis on the Third place finals game and winner. I’m still learning how the nature of predictions work and the strange twists and turns that can come at last minute to impact games (Latest example: Germany/Spain game result). I had dismissed and minimized it myself before the game, the negative impact of the Octopus superstition and its prediction against Germany, and the resulting fear which was created, bringing out negative thoughts, doubts and memories of losing to Spain in the past. So as I’ve learned that anything can happen in the last hours to impact a team and change the game around, check back in here to see if I can see any changes on the Third place finals game, before that game starts. If I don’t post again on this game, this goes:
Uruguay vs. Germany July 9, 2010
Something has been taken out of Germany; they’re not quite their former selves. This “setback” in their last game against Spain, really made them feel quite small. It’s going to be hard to recover newly, in time for this game. They appreciate having come this far but they had really hoped for more and better from themselves than this last game showing with Spain. It’s a “hiccup” but they’re still feeling the hiccup in their throat and it won’t be easy to remove it in time for their next game with Uruguay. Though they’ll appear stronger for sure than what they did against Spain, it will not seem like the same German team that beat Argentina or England or Ghana. Something has been taken out of them in this last game against Spain.
That said, Uruguay has been more and more building and feeling refreshed from some time off. They are looking to beat Germany and feel strong enough to do so. They are feeling confident and quite able. So look to Uruguay to have a slight edge in winning this one and overpowering the German team in this upcoming game. They will not do it overwhelmingly but with enough to take the game and win Third place in the finals.
It’s a good match up but I see the image of a dog running with its tail between its legs, not as assured, not as confident, still carrying the past concerns and past failures, still too fresh in their memories (German team). This doesn’t help with one giving their strongest performance they are capable of, even if one tries very hard to do so, to put out, as they will try. Something (then) is always a bit missing, something is still a bit off, not complete (in Germany’s play). It’s going to be hard to shake off (their last experience/performance with Spain, etc…) in order for them to have a more ‘winning mindset’ in this next game with Uruguay. Unfortunately so, as they are a talented team when they feel strong and have confidence.
Why a Uruguay win? Uruguay will press Germany harder and make them have to come back to protect themselves more regularly and they will capitalize on Germany not feeling as strong as they normally do. That confidence from Uruguay (and lack of confidence still in Germany still recovering) and steady push and more forceful striking from Uruguay will make Germany run about more to do defense. They’re not at their very best, in just defending; no one is. The German team needs to be able to create enough good opportunities of their own, to strike. By keeping Germany busy in defending, Uruguay knows the German team will have less steady opportunity to strike themselves, they’ll be more at a disadvantage then.
Mental Climate of Germany coming into this game:
Tired, they’re worn out and still “feeling it” from their last game with Spain. Just exhausted but more mentally/emotionally spiritually tired of it all. It was a hard game to lose when the team was so close to the finals point. They will just have to suck it up and do their best they’re thinking at this point. Sorry about the past, having a hard time shaking it off very completely. Not looking forward to this last game in the World Cup, as they usually do (look forward to playing). They’re devastated and collapsed from their last loss with Spain still. It will be a hard game for them to go out and play with their heart and soul in it. Justifying their collapse rather than analyzing their fears that tore them apart in the last game. It’s hard to win when you’re still feeling bad about your last performance. The mind can only hold one key thought at a time and the main thought in Germany’s mind right now is to control the ball and let’s not lose like we did with Spain. Fear of losing (again, like that) is not a healthy thought to carry into this game along with their frustrations and disappointments from the past. Alas Germany will still have some of these lingering thoughts too dominant in their minds as they enter into the upcoming game with Uruguay. Doubt, concern, worry, wishing it could be over, the game done and find some peace and comfort at home.
Mental Climate of Uruguay coming into this game:
Determined. We’ve come this far to let it go now. We can do this. If we really focus on Germany’s weakness and push them off their rhythm (kind of like Spain did) aggressively pushing them towards defense, we may have a chance in this one. We can’t slacken or let up towards the goal. Similarly we need to be very good on defense and protecting our goal post. We can do this. We’re not afraid. We have come this far and no one expected that from us. So here we are. Let’s have fun and get a win in for Uruguay. Third place is a fun medal to win and bring back. It says we are still winners, even if in Third place. Happy, ready to go, willing to put out their best in this next game. Determined.
