Having a great rival can also be motivating often a younger sibling becomes the greater player as an adult. During practice, an exciting trick is to set harder targets opposite top. Underpinning success in all martial arts, sports and leadership is stillness of mind. In the ancient martial art of Jujitsu, the first to act usually loses, so both combatants wait. Top baseball hitters and goal kickers make themselves calm and still before striking. Patterned gestures, or anchors below, can assist with this. Success also lies in simplifying what you are doing, in even the smallest things lower opposite. Peak performance appears and feels effortless, so if something is hard work then try varying it slightly, one thing at a time, until it feels easier. Many top performers also mimick themselves, copying the emotional state of excellence from their specialty into other life areas.

To set up an anchor, first choose the state you wish to embody, then recall three different occasions when you had this desired state. In turn, visualise, feel and hear each occasion.

Repeat every day for a while. Trigger the gesture in a circumstance where it is desired.
