Such fears trigger a domino effect of physiological problems that can undermine our athletic performance, Millman notes: Mindset By Brian Johnson A renowned Stanford University professor helps us understand why having the right mindset affects everything we do.
Our feelings are our feelings. Millman offers up a variety of techniques for better handling our emotions — and for moving more quickly and effectively through the difficult or entrenched feelings that crop up.
We can do the same. You have much more control over your behavior than you do over your thoughts or emotions, so, paradoxically, the best way to master your emotions is to let them be, stay relaxed, and focus on constructive action.
This practice of consciously slowing down to acknowledge and accept your emotions without reacting to them allows you to reconnect more easily with your motivation and willingness to train no matter what your endeavor.
Before you read the rest of this article, try this exercise: Staying relaxed and easy, catch it. Be sure to catch it. Then come back inside, and continue reading. In that same moment your emotions were open, and your body was alert and vitalized.
Millman describes this as a moment of satori. In short, it is an experience of the present moment. Staying focused on the present can be challenging the mind is terrific at time travel!

This realization catalyzed a search for the fundamentals necessary to create success not just in sport but in daily life. For athletes, scores, performance times, or win-loss records often serve as the primary measure of success. Movement skills, themselves, have little application in daily life, but the internal qualities you develop through these activities — mental focus, emotional energy, and the ability to relax the body under stress — can improve the quality of every moment.
Eastern cultures have always known that mind training is essential for physical success. We are only now coming to realize that each culture, with its rich diversity of language and beliefs, contributes to the well-being of the whole. Our potential will blossom in the sunlight of deeper awareness. The time has come to awaken the body mind master — the peaceful warrior — within each of us.
Training, the heart of the athletic experience, can be represented by a journey up a mountain path. The peak represents your highest potential. Wherever you stand on your path, it is wise to have a clear map of the terrain ahead — a way of seeing your position in relation to your goals, a view of upcoming hurdles, and an understanding of the effort required to reach the peak.
Realistic vision, a deep awareness of your potential in a given endeavor, enables you to choose the wisest course and to train for it. From a good beginning, all else flows. For fifteen years I trained with great energy in the sport of gymnastics. Even though I worked hard, progress often seemed slow or random, so I set out to study the process of learning.
Beginning with standard psychological theory, I read studies of motivation, visualization, hypnosis, conditioning, and attitude training. My understanding grew, but only in bits and pieces. Reading Eastern philosophy, including the traditions of Taoist and Zen martial arts, expanded my knowledge, but I still lacked the understanding I sought. Eventually, I turned to my own intuitive experience for the answers. I understood that infants learn at a remarkable pace compared to adults.
I watched my little daughter Holly at play, to see if I could discover what qualities she possessed that most adults lacked. One Sunday morning as I watched her play with our cat on the kitchen floor, my eyes darted from my daughter to the cat and back again, and a vision began to crystallize; an intuitive concept was forming in my mind about the development of talent — not just physical talent but emotional and mental talent as well.
After that discovery I found myself taking long walks alone, observing the forces of wind and water, trees and animals — their relationship to the earth. At first, I noticed only the obvious — that plants tend to grow toward the sun, that objects fall toward the earth, that trees bend in the wind, that rivers flow downhill. After many such walks, nature removed her veil, and my vision cleared. I suddenly understood how trees bending in the wind embodied the principle of nonresistance.
Visualizing how gentle running water can cut through solid rock, I grasped the law of accommodation. Seeing how all living things thrived in moderate cycles, I was able to understand the principle of balance. Observing the regular passing of the seasons, each coming in its own time, taught me the natural order of life.
I came to understand that socialization had alienated me and most adults from the natural order, characterized by free, spontaneous expression; my young daughter, however, knew no separation from things as they really are. Still, such insights seemed more poetical than practical, until, in a single moment, the final piece fell into place.
I was taking a hot shower, enjoying the soothing spray, when my busy mind suddenly became quiet and I entered a reverie.
The realization stunned me: The laws of nature apply equally to the mind and the emotions. This may not seem like a big deal to you, but I dropped the soap. The principles or processes of training were no longer merely physical. They became psycho physical. My perceptions even made a subtle shift: After fifteen years of gymnastics, my real training had finally begun.
All that remained was to put this understanding to use. As I did, the fruits of training began to spill over into daily life. Training became a way of life, not just a means to an end. And the game of athletics became a vehicle of body mind mastery — training for the game of life. This action might not be possible to undo. Are you sure you want to continue?
