There are several ways we can become good at stuff. We can practice and using a role model we can gather their aptitudes with failed practice. To do it then compare to the role model and then do it again until it matches the role models result. (Larp) Live action role play.
If you want to learn to be a doctor you practice with mistakes with feedback to what you did and then do it again, if you want to do better golf you practice with mistakes with feedback to what you did and then do it again but all level of performances are depending on skills.
If you break down every sport you finds skills if you break down things like writing books, screenplays etc…or something else there are skills involved that one if identified can practice and improve upon.
NLP for example studied therapy how a really skilled therapists did things that worked to overcome problems for their clients. Those skills were mapped and put into working models (NLP Patterns) that when you practiced those gained skills that allowed you to to achieved results like those therapists had. You then become better than average therapist doing therapy in less time than what was believed to be needed in the field a one week practitioner can sometimes do things 5 years of university don’t even come close to.
In Golf many study golf swings, I don’t. I study how to play golf better. Mike Austin was the chosen role model for the golf swing but I choose other models to play golf. I looked at Nicklaus and others for different parts of the game.
What’s dominant is consistency but none of them can teach you consistency. Even them themselves had issues now and then to do consistency. Nicklaus however had his competitive drive to make him either win or be a runner up. It wasn’t his swing, putting or such but his competitive drive that allowed him to play his best every time. If one look at the wrong thing that people do to succeed and come to believe its the golf swing that makes you a scratch or tour pro then your in trouble.
I found for me a way to hit the ball straight recently, I changed my grip to a split one and then everything started to come together. Everything I cant do with those other grips I can do with a split grip and it helped me identify the back swing and the down swing flaws I have a tendency to do now and then.
Its due I look for patterns things you do that if you don’t evolve and succeed and make progress I then change things to make such progress and succeed.
Most don’t, they cant change due to them believe in the technology, trainer, method etc..or the common assumed belief shared along the community there. I just don’t.
Think about this as, if you do improve it means you never get stuck, if your curve of improvement halts then you need to alter and change something due to your limiting or blocking yourself out. Often due to the belief the trainer put in you to assume to be true. Its common in every sport I checked that people do things there based upon assumed correct beliefs instead of results.
I start with success, that you already can do it, whatever happens to get you there will then be much easier. For example if you cant contain your experience doing things like the zone etc..its due to your not comfortable into letting the brain produce it due to the wrong focus and attention markers like the golf swing technique, positions etc…if the experience is disturbed a lot (compared) the brain cant produce a winning performance experience.
A Mike Austin swing wont transform you into a new Jack Nicklaus or Rory Mcilroy as you need other skills to do that.
Once the skills are there and your able to remove obstacles (habits/Beliefs/assumptions etc..) you learned to be able to sustain your experience over a period of time (zone) you then will be able to be good and do good.
We cant cheat us there, the skills needs to be there so we can focus solely to just play well if its golf or to coach someone into success as a client or whatever else the end result is simple attention to the thing that works to do the skills well.
Such practice however reside on perceived feedback and if you do what many does its easy to be seduced you did improved when you didn’t. I check facts what you actually did do. If your able to do that and not some fictive imagined level you didn’t do or the common I practice like this and I will get better due to the trainer said so and I then check what they do and they are not improving the way they think they are.
I then remove the technique focus and go primal and soon they make putts from everywhere, hit the drives longer and more straight. Better focus allows your experience to produce a better performance.
However many cant do this due to them believe something else makes them succeed and do better that has nothing to do with performances. Then that whatever they come to believe will get in their way to succeed.
I taken diagnosed dyslexics and in an hour transformed them to not be dyslexics anymore.
For the field of science with established technology they cant understand what I done and does and here is the kicker, they don’t want to know either as it makes them uncomfortable with success. So in 10 years time no scientist yet has called me and wanted to study what I do yet.
It’s the best technology in the world out there to handle dyslexia.
Its just make beliefs and assumptions people have about dyslexia and how to help them uncomfortable as they need to let go of old beliefs and assumptions.
Its as true with golf and its people there.
People come to believe reality is built one way, we don’t have the sensitivity normally to argue and check for differences and we accept the leading field what they do and say. If someone does do things differently that works better people still wont accept it as its contradicts the accepted way to do things currently people agreed upon. The brain perceptually do things based upon perception of maps, we are contextually accessing information based upon the context and neural nets in our brain wont be changing soon as a neural net is a signal value so what we do is to build new such neural nets than can draw upon them new information and the essential old one that works to do it.
There is no change or transformation of your performance, life, brain, problem etc..we just build new.
Once you understand that approach I do with RBIm you cant be stuck or limited.
You always build new. You then combine the new with the old that works to produce the desired result.
The brain makes a check to context and since you built a new one then it starts to sue that instead, just like that. The brain don’t make guesses or think it just runs on signal values we receive from the environment and our own thinking. If your own thinking makes you react and respond in a pattern then you build new and bring the new stuff you want and then the old stuff needed will be there also as the brain will fire new neural net threads to support the new action. Due to the nature of neurons and nets this can take some time to stabiles to the individual depending on what it is about.
Its like a tree branch, you plant a new tree next to the old one, the old tree sends a branch to the new tree and you then when you planted it with new information soon are able to increase the signal to use the new tree instead of the old one that slowly fades and the better your able to distinguish between the old and the new one the faster the transgression happens.
If we repeat stuff we grow faster signals in the neural net. If we build new then this interrupts the old signal and we can then adjust to the new. The brain is good doing faster with current information and once we established a new reference the new will become faster soon also.
As I found how to hit it straight I took notice it was a new thing I wasn’t used to do that and become as I played into this idea of accepting when I did it this way then it just went straight. And as I played this was a new experience that I haven’t had before. So as I played and this become accepted to me I then could start doing that and play from that reference. I was able to identify 3 things I did that I wasn’t aware off I did do. That alone allowed me to understand why I was struggling with the other grip and the mechanics.
If you do become stuck, a change of perspective might help, ask someone, read or check a video, or to do a change routine or something else as soon you do that what happens is a change of context is applied. Your moving your attention from the inside of one context to another and then the difference between those allows you to build a new branch and to discover a whole new tree.
