I noticed really strongly yesterday how futile it is to keep telling myself and telling myself whats important to remember about doing a move while I'm trying to do it. I dont know if many of you do that.. you keep thinking that if you phrase the self instruction a certain way it will be like a secret password and then you'll OWN the move forever and ever. I was trying to settle down and be emotionless while learning to lurch around in small increments, like around a foot at a time (thanks for the motivation Bloodhound!) Well I was sometimes doing it and sometimes not. And then the inner talking began, and after every scrubbed attempt I'd remind myself what to remember. And so on and so on. Sometimes I'd cook up a new formula in my head to allow me to do it. Nothing ever worked for very long. I mention all of this because the answer is all about sublimating the process-- and NOT about throwing more words of 'inspiration & hope' at the situation. Like was said about Andrew looking cool calm and collected in a pic on another thread, and Kevin saying emotion is for suckers.. really, it seems that putting the entire operation as far away out of reach of words is the best way to approach making a move your own. Theres a vast difference between talking yourself into pulling off a move once out of ten attempts, and really owning it. And you cant own a move by using words. Or emotions either I suppose. I dont think nervous energy plays a very big part in high-end trials. Anyway, those are some thoughts to sublimate and then throw away. As is proper.
