"Walk in the land few ever see."
The reason most accomplish very little is the negative self talk we do to OURSELVES. When facing big weights, a tough competitor, a big presentation or project, or a challenging situation, we hear the fear demon in our head. Many smarter than me know where it comes from, but it is an old aquaintance of mine. My mind constantly replays my two adductor tears whenever it gets hard and heavy. The voices of people who question why i do this to myself come back in a flurry.
Now there are times to listen to your instinct and shut it down. But other times you need to walk away from the voices, fears, and doubts, to a land where there are no sounds, to as Terry Todd once said,"the land where nobody hears your footsteps".
This is hallowed ground. Failing here makes leaves you knowing you could do it and vaguely ashamed but cocky to return. Succeeding here makes you very confident, and deeply and instinctively aware of how to come back to walking in the land again.
When you have been there a few times Time begins to compress, senses become expanded, and you watch as your body does what is trained to do, fearlessly.
