The post about archery and Lars Andersens skills will and have many opinions a lot of them I consider hateful, personal attacks and in a real fight with bows they all be dead vs him.
Bruce Lee had that with him also, real life skills used in action.
Talent isn’t much more than spend time doing things until you master the skills needed. I am always dumfounded how ignorant people are about what work it actually takes and its not luck or talent but about mastering skills.
If you know how to make a golf swing the way Mike Austin did as I know then you can replicate his feats with long driving or you can tweak what he did to play tour level golf at unprecedented consistency level.
Modeling means to build models that allow one to replicate the result one does and then take it further. Once understood then you can tweak and enhance the result to suit better as the original model didn’t know how to do that.
The idea that any skill and any result is out there to be mastered is what RBIm is about. That you can be happy, that you can enjoy small things, that you can stay in the moment and find the best performance every time as once known you can train yourself to be able to do such.
It wont mean its easy not simple to acquire such skills.
As I work the same instruction I told Hans for the golf swing I am obviously doing things differently from the start. So I work it then check and find if I do things as I should do. If I don’t adjust until it works. While some would think if one follow a model the result happens directly that isn’t true. It will happen faster however.
I adjusted already a few things, back swing has changed, set up slightly, impact and down swing and such. While this is going on I still haven’t been able to do what I want to yet even if I would play today I do a hell of a lot better than I been able to do before. Its improving, its now better I love that about this model. So this is how I should move, ok that’s different, then this and then that. Naturally this sets up a new coordination a new way to respond to the forces with better feedback. Its almost as the swing builds itself.
As I adjust I check the visual checks the evidence. Then what I am feeling vs what I should feel. Some might think removing excessive movement is a good thing and I disagree with that. The modern swing theory sucks.
Now I know what I am doing what I am working to do that works.
So if I am able to build such a swing I want to have then am I talented or just lucky? Or does it mean its skill based that one can train oneself to have? I guess the talent believer guys will cry in the dark when they go sleep.
Mastering skills is work.
Even if you know what a dyslexia needs to have a working structure to make them have such is a lot of work to make them have it now and then depending what they have with them in the first place. I taken diagnosed dyslexic kids and in less than an hour they are not dyslexic anymore.
Working the swing model I adjust until the things I do works with the model. The feedback I receive I know what its like so by that alone I swing better but since I also have a lot of things I done that are unneeded or excessive I need to wait for them to start falling off. That takes time as I am not fixing my old swing, I building a totally new one.
Once feedback is received the change or new is implemented within minutes. Then you can work the form and structure as you identify that. Its much like step by step and once one layer is laid down we build a new one upon that. Once feel is found and it’s the same for anyone then that feedback will allow you to organize your skills into a fabulous action.
The way people talk about talent makes it more a self helpless talk, well they have talent I don’t then I cant do it or learn to do it due to I lack talent. That’s like madness.
I understand the reasoning though as if you don’t know how people do things of course you will believe such. NLP for example was the really first attempt to decode what people did to achieve result and then build a way to transfer such results to other people.
Its what I done for 20 years, look at people with such eyes to search for clues about what are they doing to be able to do that?
The RBIm 3.0 for example is such an example as it takes mindfulness and consciousness into a new arena.
