Form doesn’t exist: Reset your mindset
Unpopular opinion maybe but I don’t think form exists in sports and the like. If it were to exist it is entirely mental. Your performance on day one doesn’t magically carry on to day two, and thinking it does could be disastrous for any athlete.
In saying that, if you had a positive experience on day one, that positivity could brush off onto day two in a positive way, but I don’t think that has anything to do with your physical body.
I believe it was Roger Federer who has a method of hitting away the bad energy by physically swatting at his side, and this enables him to reset his mindset and start over. This is how it should be done, not some belief in something that is entirely imaginary.
When you’re feeling in a funk, don’t blame your form or the situation, do something to reset your mindset, your ‘form’ will be glad you did.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Hi, I’m Tim Bunting AKA the Kiwi Yamabushi, a New Zealander who became a Yamabushi Ascetic in the Dewa Sanzan mountains of north Japan. I’m part of the Yamabushido team, and we host life-altering Yamabushi training on the Dewa Sanzan (website link). People come to us for the ultimate mindfulness experience, to reach the next level, or simply connect with nature and themselves.
I’m on a mission to summit all 100 Famous Mountains of Yamagata Prefecture to spread the splendour of this fabulous location, and in dedication to all those who lost their lives out in nature, including my father.
On my daily blog I post thoughts of a practicing Yamabushi that I hope people can use to better themselves and live as fulfilling a life as possible.
