When you sit there alone, in your own thoughts, what goes through your mind? Thoughts of self doubt or thoughts of security. What do your dreams look like? Do you dream in black and white or color? Is there light or darkness in your eyes? Pay attention to that. Being alone is not a bad thing, it just gives yourself time to align yourself properly. Use that time for preparation.
