The Downward Spiral
After you enter the downward spiral and are confused for 25 to 30 minutes, you’re toast for the day. This is due to your brain injecting cortisol into your system, which is a hormone that kills performance at every level.
After 25 to 30 minutes of injection, there is so much cortisol in your system, it takes 24 hours to get it out.
On the upward spiral, the DHEA hormone begins to be injected into your system when you become engaged, which is where confidence comes from. And that hormone is a performance enhancer and allows for entrance into the zone.
