Have you experienced times during a game or event when you found yourself spontaneously moving to the right place at the right time, doing just the right thing?
Almost as if you knew where the “ball” was going to land and as you moved in that direction, the “ball” follows you… and there is nothing logical about this – the knowing was not based on any form of analysis.
Or have you experienced the joy when your body spontaneously moves effortlessly in the moment and you achieve extraordinary results without being able to logically explain how it happened after the event?
Many reporters who question champion sportpeople about how they were able to perform the amazing feats in the field/pool/track etc., are surprised when the answer is commonly “I don’t know. It just happened!”
When you experience high states of Zone, this answer is not a surprise. In very high states of Zone the mind is quiet. Thinking does not take place and movement is spontaneous. Therefore, there is no memory of the “how” as it was not consciously thought through.
This is the way champion sportspeople achieve extraordinary success in sport.
It is called “being in the Zone.”
Unfortunately, many sportspeople don’t know the mechanics of what puts them in the Zone and how to step back in if they happen to fall out of it. Most sportspeople are also unable to step into the Zone outside of the sporting arena – in relationships and every other area of their lives.
The more I engage in using the key Zone Tool the more pleasure I get out of it. It’s something I can use for the rest of my life to benefit me and my family. The value for me has been a priceless experience. I just wish I had the training 10 years earlier – it would have been a much more enjoyable career. Matthew Bode, Adelaide Crows (Australian Football League)
