I have been fascinated by the idea of brain tuning since my first encounter with the legend Mind Coach to the elite, Don Macpherson.
Don is the mind coach and the secret behind the next level success of world class Formula 1 drivers, Snooker players, Premiership Rugby Players, Football stars, Tennis and Golf champions.
Over time I was very keen and fortunate to receive the odd words of wisdom which I took with open hands and to this day they continue to serve me well.
I'm only surface deep with the understanding of Don's Mind Coaching.
Don is well known for his brain tuning techniques that take individuals to a high level of performance by successfully managing their monkey minds. A buddhist concept dated back thousands of years. Read more about the monkey mind at Don Macpherson's website- www.donmacpherson.co.uk/the-mind/
I found this tip very recently to be a real hit home lesson to think about and apply.
Focus on the process...
"When things aren’t going well, the Monkey goes into overdrive. Focus on the process and go back to basics. Golf is a good example - the game is just you and the Monkey. Just like a golfer hitting the balls into the trees and assuming that that is the end of his round, we might make a mistake in the first minute of our driving test and think that we’ve failed. But it isn’t necessarily so. There are 17 more holes. When you make a small mistake - for example in the driving test - the key thing is not to make another more serious one immediately afterwards as a result of allowing the Monkey to distract you. Focus on the process - in this case, the driving - not on history".
