Welcome to ZONE! I've spent most of my life as an elite athlete, including a couple of decades in the thrill seeking sport of freestyle aerial skiing. I’ve been lucky enough to experience many magical moments of being in the ZONE. A place where I was laser focused and deflecting all distraction. Where internal chatter was quiet and controlled. Where I felt in flow and my movements were executed with precision and purpose. Where I felt light and energetic, my breath was full and slow. Where I performed at my best. This is the ZONE. A beautiful internal place of being in flow.
On the flip side, I've also had (many) moments where, despite my best efforts, I wasn't in the ZONE. Where my thoughts were clouded, and I succumbed to distraction. When my breath was shallow and fast, when I felt out of control and made mistakes.
Sometimes we just have a bad day, or moment, or performance. Growth is in letting it go. Growth is in humility. Growth is in learning from it and always trying to find a positive intention behind every situation.
