Brain Creates the Zone

How the brain creates the zone and what is actually happening when you are in the zone which in turn allows for more people to actually trust it and experience it! 

 It is about repetition and anticipating and using this and other research has enabled us to be so much more effective in coaching shooters golfers fishermen and business people to train their brains to anticipate farther and farther in front of where they are. This is the essence of what practice is really about and why doing the same things in the same way with routines is so important. There is a circuit in the brain that does nothing but anticipate ahead of where you are and our understanding of skill is the ability to anticipate farther and farther ahead of where you are and through chunking allows for higher and higher levels of performance with less and less conscious in put. 

 This is one of the most powerful realities we have stumbled on to in order to get people to actually TRUST themselves BECAUSE THEY KNOW WHAT THEY ARE TRUSTING! The other huge thing is they begin to take their practice to higher and higher levels because they understand that they are building their own anticipation circuit and they understand through chunking things together they will improve their ability to perform.
