  7. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jan29_Post.mp4 One of the most sought after experiences among competitive athletes is the flow state. Musicians and other performers experience this on a different level. The flow state is when you are operating at a very high level of competence, but you are unconscious. Not in a trance, (or passed out) but you are flowing without needing your conscious brain. Most of us experience the flow state while doing more mundane things like doing laundry and making grilled cheeses. These are things that are learned skills. Learned to the point of unconscious competence. Meaning we can do them without our brains. But for pros, whose careers require they practice for hours a day, they do this with HIGHLY trained skills. Not only highly trained skills, but highly trained skills used in a competitive environment. When your making a burrito or folding your clothes, the burrito ingredients or your unfolded clothes just sit there. They aren't fighting against you. But in a competitive sport, you have ZERO idea what the other guy is going to do. So when you reach a flow state in this environment, it's like magic. A continuous unfolding of uncertainty, the mathematics of which are too complex to solve even with the most powerful supercomputers. Yet here's our ancient monkey-brain, flowing like a dream. This is a bit different for performance arts. For performing, it's more like folding your clothes. Meaning there isn't anybody in your face trying to mess you up. Sometimes the opposite. If it's appropriate, and the audience is watching, you can use their energy to enhance your performance. And since this is unexpected, it's very much a flow state. A friend of mine did this while on stage. He was in a play that he'd practiced a kajillion times. But one night, when he was about to drop a "punchline," he broke a cardinal rule of acting. That is to NEVER beak the fourth wall. Breaking the fourth wall means looking DIRECTLY at the audience, or the camera. He said he didn't know WHY he did it. He just felt it, in the moment, spontaneously within the flow state. Instead of looking at his partner, he calmly turned directly to the audience and said it. And EVERYBODY, even the director, said it was PERFECT. Something you can never predict or even explain. You just gotta feel it. There is a way to CREATE this feeling in others. Conversationally. The natural FLOW state. Where one idea simply slides right into the next. All they need to do is follow your words. And they can passively enjoy one of the most sought after human experiences.

  8. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Aug11APost.mp4 Way back when I was in high school, my buddies and I loved the movie, "Mad Max." Not the Road Warrior, which came up back when I was in high school. But the original, part one, Mad Max. With a then completely unknown Mel Gibson. On some of the tapes we'd get, they would dub over his native Australian accent with an American one. My buddies were serious motor heads. They LOVED the part where Max saw his car for the first time. With the "blower." The part that would force air into the cylinders, and give his car some extra oomph. When he was chasing bad guys, he'd have a secret switch on to turn on the nitrous oxide injection. Another way to get more "power" in his engine. One of my personal favorite scenes was when Max was looking at his engine the first time. And he kind of went into a "trance." Staring at the engine, with its blower and massive power. You can hear some guy in the background, who was noticing the tranced out look on Max's face as he was impressed by the engine. "He's in a coma, man!" Meaning his "consciousness" was turned off. That he was so entranced by this magnificent engine, his brain was so focused, he no longer was paying attention to anything going on around him. When psychologists study this effect, particularly in sports, they call it the "flow state." When a highly trained athlete is so "on" during any competition, their conscious mind becomes a barely conscious, "watcher," enjoying the performance. This same thing happens when you're in a conversation with a close friend, or even if you're in deep rapport with somebody you've just met. The words are flowing back and forth, without needing any kind of thought. When you conscious mind is merely watching and enjoying the process. Kind of like a line from a Beastie Boys song: "Like a dream I'm flowin' without no stoppin', sweeter than a cherry pie with ready whip toppin'..." The line, of course, describes what it's like to be in the "flow state" while spontaneously rhyming on stage or on the mic. This is the height of human potential. The flow state. Where you are interacting with others in some way, conversationally, or competitively, and your conscious mind takes a back seat. To watch and enjoy this rare but extremely hypnotic state. And if you've ever gotten close to this state, or if you're a coach and you see your players getting close to state, you know it's much more of letting go. You can't really DO anything to get closer to this state. It's a matter of letting go and trusting your unconscious. The one thing that will KILL this, and stop it before it's even started is anxiety. Get rid of anxiety, and put yourself into a coma, man! Learn How: https://mindpersuasion.com/anxiety-killer/
  9. The idea of being congruent is very compelling. It's also one of those words that can mean different things to different people. A related word is resonance. If you are a little kid on a swing, and you "resonate" the frequency of your legs to the natural frequency of the swing, you can get some pretty big oscillations. Of course, little kids DON'T think: "Let's see, first I'll need to do some trial and error testing to elicit the natural frequency of this swing. Then I'll use that as a feedback system and attempt to oscillate my legs at that same resonance frequency. If I'm successful, then theoretically I should create a maximum level of oscillation." They don't think. They just naturally swing their legs until they get higher and higher. And when they decide to jump out, they also DON'T think: "Ok, timing is critical. I need to exit this system at the simultaneous maximum of my oscillations while taking the cosine of my exit with respect to the ground to achieve a maximum of both vertical height and horizontal distance." They just leap out. This is how life is SUPPOSED to be. We aren't supposed to stand there and use calculus to plan every action. We are supposed to resonate naturally with the systems around is, and achieve a maximum amount of benefit for the minimum amount of effort. This is EXACTLY why kids love swinging on the swings, and jumping out. With very little effort, (swinging their legs back and forth) they can literally LAUNCH THEMSELVES up into the air. A temporary ESCAPE VELOCITY from the ground. But for some reason, when we grow up, we lose this ability. In fact, this natural "flow state" is so rare, it's considered a physiological and psychological anomaly. This is one of the drawbacks of living in a modern society. On one hand, we've got tons of cool stuff. But the cost for this is the TONS of data hitting our senses. So much it's VERY HARD to find that natural resonance that comes from being fully CONGRUENT with our nature. But if you were to find a local park and get on the swing set, you would remember how to have fun. That is, if you allowed yourself to. And with a little conscious thought and understanding, you can recalibrate your inner resonance system to the modern world. And reach that coveted flow state much more often. Learn How: Ego Taming
