Break Through All Barriers and Develop Unlimited Internal Power
February 7th, 2013
Over the last couple days I’ve written close to 5,000 words.
After taking a semi-retirement break for the past four years, during which time I progressively wrote less and less, I began to wonder if I “had it in me” to go back to the old days of cranking out 2,000 words per day (my benchmark).
I put the “doubting Thomas” thought to rest yesterday with the following admonition: “Furey, writing 2,000 words is no different than an email. Mentally pretend you’re writing an email – but keep going and you’ll be fine.”
This process of tricking my mind into thinking of writing as nothing more than email writing – which is really nothing more than writing what you’d be saying out loud – increased my productivity big time.
So I’ve just given you the first of six ways to get more done in less time. Let me spell it out again anyway, along with four other factors that really, really work – and fast. One thing you’re going to find is that none of the ways you’re about the read about are your standard “make a list before bedtime.” Yep, that works too – but it didn’t make the Fure-cat’s list for this round of six because almost everything I’ve written here cannot be found in writing anywhere else:
1. Simplify Whatever You Want to Do Into Smaller “Mental” Chunks – at one time, knocking out 2,000 words of copy per day was easy. But when you’re elbows haven’t had grease on them in a while, you may feel like you’ve lost your touch. If you can reduce whatever you’re doing to nuggets, then it doesn’t feel like you’re eating the whole chicken.
Want to walk three miles but feel lethargic? Then tell yourself you’ll walk a mile – better yet, a minute. Bet you can’t stop after a minute, either, because you’ll quickly lose track of the fact that you said you’d walk for a minute.
2. Follow Your Breath – No matter what you’re doing, you cannot be as effective if you’re holding your breath or taking shallow breaths. Your breath is your power. Remember that. Deep breathing gives you energy, it gives you life, it helps you effortlessly get more done. As you read these words, note how you’re breathing. If shallow, be like a child again and bring your breath down to your lower belly. Doing this completely changes your
mood and gives you juice to get more done.
3. Hide Your Gadgets – I know you may think you get more done when you carry your “smart” gadgets around with you – but I’m willing to bet the opposite is true. I can pinpoint the day, time and year in which I became less productive – and believe it or not, it’s when I bought my first “smart” phone. Although I still have one, I’m moving closer to the day I destroy it and refuse to get another. For every minute of increased productivity you think you get from using a “smart” gadget, I’m willing to bet you lose three minutes doing non-essential stupid stuff that contributes almost nothing to making you a happier, healthier and more successful human being.
4. Drop Off Social Media - Yep, I gave social media a whirl – and within a month of using it, I realized it was a gigantic rabbit hole. As someone recently asked, “Where did people suddenly get all their time for social media?” Great question, eh. Currently, I have one Twitter account – and I’ve posted one time in three or four years. I’m on LinkedIn – and I rarely use it more than once a month, and for no longer than a minute or two. I dropped my Facebook account a few months ago, and let me tell you, I feel great about this. Social media stinks. It kills productivity. And anyone who thinks it helps you make moohlah is sadly mistaken. You may make some dough using it, but it’s a far cry from being the best way, the fastest way or the “smartest” way.
5. Stop Eating So Much – Okay, this one will get a few people riled up, and that may be a good thing. But hear me out please – and entertain these words with an open mind.
How much time do you spend each day preparing to eat, eating and getting back to where you were before you ate? A lot, right. If you go out to eat, you drive to a restaurant, sit and wait for food while playing with your “smart” device instead of talking to your friends or family. Then you eat while texting and taking phone calls and seeing the latest on social media sites. Then you drive home. That’s a lot of time, my friend. And if you prepare, cook and eat at home – there’s cleanup afterward.
So what to do? Stop eating completely?
No. Just cut one meal per day out of the picture. Skip breakfast or dinner. Or skip lunch. Or don’t eat after 6 PM. Whatever suits you best. But give yourself an hour to get creative things done instead of eating and PRESTO – you’re going to be in awe of yourself.
6. Use Theatre of the Mind to Wake Up Your Mind – If you’ve ever had a good day, a day in which you got a lot done, having more days like that can and does happen by magic. But not on it’s own. You create your own magic by using the power of self-image psychology; by taking time each day to go review your best days in the Theatre of Your Mind. When you review your best days, a really cool thing happens. You get more of them. And if you emblazon what you want to do today with the energy of your best days, you’ll feel like you’re sliding through life instead of rubbing against sand paper.
Theatre of the Mind is taught in detail in the Zero Resistance Living System – which is currently available for 75% off – and you get 7 superb bonuses when you claim a copy today.
Follow the six ways listed above and you’ll be writing me a “thank you” in short order.
P.S. Am I officially out of semi-retirement. Not sure yet – but it appears I’m leaning in that direction.
February 5th, 2013
I’ve been thinking about something that’s pretty cool and doesn’t happen very often for most of us.
What is it?
Well, I turn 50 in May.
Think of it. Turning 50 on the 5th month of the year. As well as the 5th day.
It boggles the mind.
So I’ve been thinking about having an “Energy Seminar” around that time – not to celebrate my birthday, but to teach you everything I can about ENERGY – the positives, the negatives – the things you need to know to live life to the full.
This seminar will cover details on psycho-physical exercises that expand your field and help you get stronger, smarter and healthier. It will cover nutrition and relaxation techniques for better sleep and stress-free living.
It will also cover the unseen dangers permeating our environment, and what you can do to protect yourself from them. These dangers include a growing concern about EMF, or electro-magnetic frequencies and their effects on your health, mind, etc. If you use an i-phone or any other so-called “smart” device, you really better attend this event to find out more.
This seminar will be unlike anything you’ve ever attended before – a Furey trademark. And it will also give you the tools you need to improve your life in ways you cannot yet imagine.
More information will be available soon – and if you like this idea and have any requests on things you’d like to see covered, please let me know.
In the interim, make sure you take me up on my 75% off special on the Zero Resistance Living System – and all the bonuses that go with it.
Having gone through this course before the seminar will help you between now and then – and make more of what I’m teaching immediately accessible.

17 years ago I wrote about motivation versus focus. If you have this book you’re a member of a VERY small group of people. I put it to bed for a number of reasons – one of which was that I felt the title turned people off.
Twas titled, How to Achieve What You Want Without Positive Thinking.
When I told people the title, I got a lot of laughs. As well as a few arguments.
One person, who hadn’t read one word of the book, got upset and told me that positive thinking was the key to success, that you had to have goals, and so on.
I told him that the book had plenty of “positive” information on goals. This went in one ear and out his rear end.
He didn’t want to hear what I had to say. He just argued and argued.
So I gave up trying to talk sense into him.
If I were writing this same book today, there’d be a number of changes. I’d present some aspects of the book in a much more palatable way – but the essence is still pretty much in line with how I think today.
Here are some examples:
• Rah, rah, rah motivation does not improve performance, for the most part.
• Positive thinking is ineffective in the way it is delivered – especially in the work force and with young children.
•There’s a monumental difference between being FOCUSED and being MOTIVATED. And FOCUS trumps motivation so often they might as well not even play anymore.
• There is a place for motivation – but without focus – it doesn’t work.
• There is a place for positive thinking – but without focus – you won’t get anywhere.
• People are far better off looking at where they are and comparing it to where they want to go, than they are ONLY looking at where they want to go.
• You cannot drive anywhere in this world without knowing where you are in relation to where you want to go.
• If you refuse to acknowledge “where you are” you have no power to change.
• Most positive thinking advocates cannot handle the truth. They’re not athletes. They’ve never gotten up to read their own box scores in the paper – along with the rest of the city, community or country.
• Real players are forced to “read the box scores” even when they aren’t positive. And this reality check either makes them improve – or they quit the game.
• He who can “read the box scores” and stay focused on the goal he’s set for himself is the person I’m betting on.
• He who reads the “positive box scores” and gloats about how great he is, is NOT building his self-esteem. He’s setting himself up for a beating.
• You’re far better off remaining neutral and staying focused when times are good or bad – as everything is subject to the whims of change without a moment’s notice.
• Take pride in your accomplishments. Relive them in your imagination and quietly go about your business creating more of them. No rah-rah sis-koom-bah is required when you’re focused.
• Be like Mark Twain’s character who had “the quiet confidence of a Christian with four aces.”
• Or, as another saying goes, “Speak softly but carry a big stick.”
Well, that pretty much covers much of the book. You now have the Cliff Notes.
At the same time, if you really want to know HOW to FOCUS like a laser and create one success after another in any area of life you choose…
well then, I strongly advise you to get yourself a copy of the Zero Resistance Living System – now available for 75% off the normal amount -
and it comes along with 7 kick-butt bonuses that’ll take you further than you’ve ever gone before.
Jump on this NOW, my friend, and watch as your life changes for the better.
January 28th, 2013
Many of you have wondered “where I’ve been” the past few years. You used to get an email or two from me each and every day, all year round. And then, all of a sudden, things slowed down.
Well, without getting into all the details, when I temporarily lost my vision in the summer of 2007, I began to look at a lot of things in a different way. Although I AM still very much interested in business, you could say that I’m not interested in the same way – or to the same extent.
Fortunately, because of great customers and fans like yourself, I could take time off and devote more energy to other matters – most of which have had
nothing to do with business.
Being that my wife and I are blessed with two young children, and both are athletes as well as students, I realized I better devote more time to them,
starting NOW. I realized that it was one thing to teach others what I know about the “mental game” and such – but if I don’t do my best to pass this same
know-how onto my children, then I would feel very sad, indeed.
And so, three years ago when my son, Frank, took up baseball, I began to convert what worked for me in wrestling, martial arts and business into something that a young boy could understand and use. The same I’ve been doing for my daughter, in the sport of swimming.
In the three years that Frank has been playing ball, he has continued to enthrall me, as well as a lot of other people. And my daughter isn’t far removed from being in the same position.
As an example, on Saturday, Frank smacked two home runs in one game, both of which sailed about 100 feet past the fence, landing in another ball field.
And yesterday, he pitched a total of five innings against two very good teams, and not only did he allow no hits, runs or walks – he struck out 12 of the 16 batters he faced. The only player to reach first did so on a passed ball after he struck out.
You know you’re doing a good job when the coaches from the other teams come up to you and congratulate you for your skills. This happened after both games yesterday.
At the plate, Frank wasn’t as hot yesterday. He struck out a couple times in the semi-finals. But do you want to know what I’m most proud of? When Frank hit his homers or struck out the others, he remained cool, calm and collected.
The same happened when he struck out. He didn’t pout, whine or cry when things didn’t go his way. Nor did he gloat when did well. He took it all in stride, keeping in mind the idea that every at bat is a new season – and every pitch is the only pitch you’re focused on.
Now, you might think that my son is this way naturally, but you’d be wrong. It wasn’t all that long ago that I wondered if I would ever be able to break him of his tendency to get upset at himself – even in practice. Truth is I never broke him of the habit; he broke it himself. And that’s the only way any habit gets broken.
YOU DO IT YOURSELF.
All the wisdom in the world cannot and will not help you unless YOU DECIDE to let it in – and follow it. Until good advice is internalized, nothing happens, no matter who it comes from or who said it to whom.
The late great Vince Lombardi, who had a dog-eared, highlighted and underlined copy of Psycho-Cybernetics in his library, used to give a talk entitled, “Why I’m Teaching My Son to Be an Athlete” – or something similar. I think I could give a similar talk – but I’d definitely include my daughter in the speech.
As a physician friend in my hometown in Iowa, used to tell my Dad and me, “You learn more from sports than you’ll ever learn in the classroom.”
Ditto for good martial arts training.
And if you’re fortunate enough to have someone who teaches you the mental game of life – then you can say “ditto” once again.
In case you’re wondering what type of “mental game” techniques and tactics I teach my son and daughter. Well, your answers to that question can be found in the Zero Resistance Living System - an international best-seller that is currently available for 75% off the regular amount.
Plus, there’s seven kick-butt bonuses I’m including in the offer to sweeten the pot even more.
Make sure you take a gander and get this program NOW, as it WILL change your LIFE.
P.S. By the way, one of the things I love is the website created for my son’s 12U baseball coach – check it out here – and if by chance you feel the urge to donate to the team, make sure you mention that you heard about it from me and that the amount should be applied to the 12U program.

Yesterday’s news. Can I believe my eyes?
A couple NFL players from the Oakland Raiders, Tim Brown and Jerry Rice, come clean.
They say Super Bowl XXVII (2002), which our local Tampa Bay Buccaneers won, was fixed.
Now, I know there are a lot of “purists” who are unable to fathom how a professional sport can be fixed. But it’s not all that difficult, in my book. Even more so, “fixes” don’t start in the professional leagues.
Case in point was Ronnie Harmon, the Iowa running back who fumbled inside the 10-yard line, more than once, in the Rose Bowl. I was a young college wrestler at the time, and when I saw the man who NEVER fumbled, cough up the ball three times when the Hawkeyes were close, I screamed at the tee-vee, “That SOB was paid off.”
Indeed, he was.
But that story took a good 10 years or so to emerge, after Harmon had already played in the NFL with the Buffalo Bills and San Diego Chargers.
Whether we’re talking about boxing, basketball, baseball, football, hockey or any other sport – there’s a way to fix the outcome.
I’ve had a few arguments with baseball folks over the years because they claim there’s no way to fix a baseball game. To this I now respond, “Okay, if that’s the case, clear Pete Rose of all charges, let him manage again and make him eligible for the Hall of Fame.”
Think about it. Why was Pete Rose banned from baseball for life? Because he bet on his own team.
Okay, what’s wrong with betting on your own team?
Hmmm. I’d say it’s because you can influence the outcome of the game.
You can fix a game without even playing in it. And that’s what the former Raiders boss is being accused of.
Over the past few years I’ve accurately predicted a lot of winners on the playing field. I’ve made predictions that absolutely sounded stupid. No one took me seriously. Until I won the bets.
Some of the most stunning predictions I made that came true were the Rays sweeping the Yankees in four-straight games while Boston fell to the Orioles, which put the Rays into the playoffs as a Wild Card.
Just last week a few friends called to ask me who would be going to the next Super Bowl. Without thinking I blurted out, the 49ers and the Ravens.
I was nuts. I was dead wrong. The Patriots were 67-0 at home with Tom Brady. There’s no way he could or would lose at home.
Well, he did.
Was the game fixed.
I don’t believe so – but you never know.
Now, I most certainly don’t claim to be right all the time. And no, I’m not going to help you pick winners in Vegas. I like to call games just for fun, and nothing more.
But you may wonder if this type of prediction-making is a skill you can develop or harness.
The answer is yes.
How do you do it.
By freeing your mind and body of tension and resistance. By being free to think the unthinkable, to let go and explore.
Next, you’ve got to be able to think in pictures. You’ve got to see things happening in your mind’s eye, before they happen.
Both of these skills can be developed by using the Zero Resistance Living System.
You follow the exercises that teach you how to give up resistance to the flow of life. You learn to practice Theatre of the Mind, wherein you explore your successful past experiences and imagine more of them coming to fruition in the future.
And you do all of this in the NOW.
You see the past in the NOW.
You see the future in the NOW.
And you relax and let go of tension in the NOW.
When you do this each day – after about a month or so, you start tuning into much more than what your goals are and how you can create them.
You start being able to sense and see what others don’t.
And that’s a mighty fine thing, don’t you think.
Well, right now you can get the entire Zero Resistance Living System for 75% off – along with 7 extraordinary bonuses that will brighten your day, making what some may call “miracles” begin to happen for you on a regular basis.
Explore the course and see for yourself. It’ll make a believer out of you.
P.S. If you want to “FIX” your future for the positive, then Zero Resistance Living is the key. If you imagine it – then it will come. And you won’t need anyone else to tamper with the score to make it happen. You let go of the resistance to life – and life gives you what you want.
January 15th, 2013
For years I’ve noticed it.
People come into a training with me to learn the Theatre of the Mind process.
Some of the peoples’ faces look happy and excited to be at the event. They’re also curious as to how it will go.
Then there are some who are sort of caught in between happy and sad. You could say they’re in neutral.
Naturally, there are also those who are flat out miserable. They’re in pain and you can see it. They’re carrying heavy burdens of one form or another.
Now, here’s what interesting: All three types of people I just described are in some kind of pain. All of them. Everyone has some secret anguish, some hidden internal scar, some traumatic emotional event that they’re still carrying around.
I’m not judging. I’m just stating the facts. And I can only SEE what I see because I’ve been there too – often. In fact, I’d be lying if I said there was nothing in my entire life that isn’t painful.
For example, I have a mother who no longer remembers that I’m her son. She cannot call me by name, even though I visit her regularly and do what I can to help her regain her brain.
Before I began to work on various energy points, the only words she had uttered in months were “yes” or “no.” That was it.
When I visit her now, most of the time she will speak at least one complete sentence. And she’ll smile or show emotion.
Sometimes she speaks quite a bit. And we’re always surprised to hear her voice.
My father and I view every tiny spark of life still in her, or that comes back momentarily as a huge breakthrough – but in the big scheme of things, it’s still painful to behold. It’s painful to watch your mother being pulled back into the earth.
But here’s the point of today’s message: On a daily basis, after cleaning the outside of my body in the form of a shower, I take time to go within and clean
the inside. I go into my mental movie theatre and observe images of the best days I ever had. Or I take a painful thorny experience and turn it into a rose.
Before I do Theatre of the Mind, my face has a neutral look. Afterward, my face glows.
And THIS, my friend, is the phenomena I’ve observed in my seminars for years. Regardless of whether you enter the room smiling, sad or neutral – you leave with a new face. You leave the room with the weight of the world removed from your shoulders.
The face change is not permanent. It’ll last a few days. Perhaps even a week or more. But if you don’t continue to “clean” on a regular basis, some other pain” is going to get you. It’s going to make you less radiant. It’s going to make your eyes dull.
But the moment you enter Theatre of the Mind and activate your automatic happiness switch, regardless of the pain from your past, regardless of the burdens you’re carrying – life will change for you – and the changes on the inside will be visible on the outside.
They show up in your face. They show up in your eyes. They show up in the field of energy that surrounds your body.
People notice. And they respond to you differently.
So keep this in mind: After every external morning shower, take time for an internal shower. It’ll change your face. And your life.
Discover how to do Theatre of the Mind and much more in the best-selling Zero Resistance Living System – now available at 75% off.
Plus, there are seven super bonuses you get with the package – and every single one of them is life-changing – er, face changing.
Change your face – change your life.
January 14th, 2013
Twas eating brunch this morning when a lovely young lady showed up in her light green animal doctor clothes. She stood at the table next to mine, talking to a couple customers.
Being I was focused on consuming my meal, I hardly noticed the gal. But after I paid the bill and pushed away from the table, I could no longer ignore what was happening nearby.
Leah, the animal specialist, was holding the marsupial on her chest and shoulder. At this point I could no longer contain myself:
“Is that a possum?” I asked.
“Yes, would you like to pet him. Possums are wonderful.”
I walked toward the possum as my wife snapped a photo.
“Too dark,” I said. “Let’s try again.”
The lady says, “Let’s move over here where it won’t be so dark, and I’ll duck so you get a good shot of him.”
A good shot of him we got – and now I can say that my day is already off to a good start. Why? Because I did something unique and interesting that I’ve never done before.
Yep, I petted a possum.
Now, think of this: How often do you do something you’ve never done before. How often are you learning something new.
If your answer is, “Another day, same old shit” then I feel motivated to tell you there is a better way to live. In fact, I believe one of the keys to living a great
life is placing a high value on learning something new. Not once a week or once a month. Not just when you’re in school. Not just when you start a new job. And not just for the first 40 years of your life.
I think your life get immeasurably better when you go to bed each evening knowing that you learned at least three things you didn’t know before.
I say “at least three” – but the truth is there will be many days in which you learn 20, 30, 50 or 100 new things – if you’re open to learning.
There will also be days in which you were so busy doing your job, taking care of your children, putting out fires, etc., that you get to the evening and you haven’t learned anything new.
Well, if you were to ask me, I’d say going to bed with nothing new to stimulate your brain is not a good day. So quick, grab a book, listen to a CD or watch a
DVD and learn something new.
One of the ways to keep yourself on target is a journal. In this journal, write the question, “What Did I Learn Today?”
Then quickly enumerate what you learned. This exercise will help emblazon the new connections you made in your brain during the day. And it will keep
you excited about living life at full throttle, with gusto and enthusiasm.
Keep in mind that learning about yourself is even more valuable than simply learning something external.
For example, when you do Theatre of the Mind work, as taught in the Zero Resistance Living System, you will learn so much about yourself that you’ll have plenty to journal about.
You’ll learn the value of your previous successes.
You’ll learn how to cut negative experiences and the toxic energy that go with them out of your life completely.
And you’ll learn how to put yourself on auto-pilot toward success instead of on auto-pilot toward failure.
Right now you can enjoy the Zero Resistance Living System along with 7 life-changing perks for 25% off the value of the entire program. Go see what I mean NOW.
And if you get the chance to pet an exotic animal anytime soon – do it.
January 10th, 2013
When you hear the words “cut it out” – you may think they have to do with stopping a certain behavior. Sort of like asking someone to “knock it off.”
But when I use these words right now, I mean something entirely different. I’m talking about going back into your past and “cutting out” painful experiences that no longer serve you.
Think about this: If you have an external scar upon your body or face that you don’t like, you can go see a surgeon and have it removed. The scar will no longer be visible.
Well, have you ever thought about doing this for previous memories or experiences that leave you feeling angry, upset, bitter or depressed.
I assure you, if you eradicate an old INTERNAL scar, you’ll feel as if at least one hundred pounds have been removed from your shoulders.
In the Zero Resistance Living System, you learn to get rid of and change the emotional reaction you have to previous personal experiences that left you feeling bad. You learn to change the scar into a star, the burden into a blessing.
And when you do this, your life takes on a color and a direction that astounds others. How is it that you’re now so full of life. How is that now you’re so filled with energy, vitality and power.
You’ll discover the answers to the above when you delve into this course and LIVE IT.
Good feelings will be the order of the day, along with happiness, love and laughter.
And this will be the case regardless of what is going on around you.
Take charge of your life NOW.

Yesterday I wrote about some off-the-chart improvements of a college pitcher I worked with for a few minutes – who broke 100 mph for the first time in one throwing drill.
Well, last night I got some monumental feedback from five additional subjects who learned one of my “Zen” secrets for athletic prowess. Now, before I show you the results, let me preface this info by saying that I don’t know of another pitching coach on the planet who has ever gotten this level of improvement this fast.
In no way is this being said to discredit these coaches. They work their tails off and are great teachers. It’s just that their primary focus is to work extremely hard on mechanics and conditioning to succeed. And although I agree with hard work, mechanics and conditioning, I also believe the hard work mentality can easily overlook what is usually the most important factor in developing your skills.
No, it’s not just the mental aspect I’m talking about. It’s the energetic component along with the mental
Let’s be honest. We are energy. We are electric energy. So it makes no sense to me to see only the physical being worked on while the biggest part of who we are is ignored.
I’m not a mechanics guy when it comes to skill development of pitchers – but I am an energy teacher -and the fastest way to change your results in any endeavor is to improve the flow of your energy – and stunningly, when you do this, your mechanics tend to automatically improve.
So you know, I’ve gotten similar results with many different types of athletes, as well as professionals in many different industries, just from enhancing their “chi” flow and connecting them to their power centers. Last month I helped a tennis pro the same way as I have these pitchers, and once again, I’m not a tennis guy.
In pitching, to gain five or more miles per hour of velocity, it can takes months of hard, hard work. Or it can take minutes when you get connected so the energy easily flows. Anyway, here’s the scoop from the coach who witnessed yet another miracle last night:
Had 5 guys doing velocity tonight. Used walking torques as our sample drill since its our most athletic maneuver. Had them try 3 times with no instruction. Then I taught them the stuff you taught last night. Here are the results:
Mi: 65 mph increased to 71.1
R: 83 to 90.1
Ma: 47.1 to 51.4
C: 89 to 93.4
I’m in awe and excited.
This will change us.
Now, how’d you like to change your energy and super-charge the results you want in life, like these young men are doing. You’ll find out how with the Zero Resistance Living course, along with the seven gifts I have included. Get yours NOW and change the speed at which you go to new heights.
January 8th, 2013
So last night I’m sitting quietly watching a junior college pitcher train like a madman. He’s focused, intense and throwing the ball hard.
And he’s going for personal velocity records.
He throws several balls at 87 and 88 mph. And the pitching coach is encouraging him big time. But he doesn’t look like he’s got the juice to break any records.
Being there were only two guys training (I guess everyone else took the night off to watch Notre Dame get crushed) and the coach trusts me, I finally spoke up and revealed a couple secrets:
“Could I make a suggestion?” I asked.
“Sure, what is it.”
“Well, first let me ask. Where are you throwing the ball from.”
“From my hand.”
“I know that. But where’s your focus when you throw the ball. Where in your body do you feel a sense of your own energy.”
“In my head,” the young man said, pointing to his noggin.
“That’s what I thought,” i replied.
I stood up and walked toward him. “I’m wondering what will happen if you throw the ball with a different focus, with a different awareness.”
I noted that the athlete was very open to my suggestions, so I continued. I pointed to various power centers on his body (not his head) and gave him very brief instructions on how these centers work. Then I asked him to throw the ball again.
This time he threw it 90 mph.
The coach was blown away and gave me a hi-5.
Then I gave him new mental pictures of what to imagine when he throws the ball. He threw again. Once more, he added more velocity, hitting 91.5.
After this I gave him a different breathing pattern.
Once again, more velocity.
Then the coach switched drills – having him do a “turn and burn” – an exercise that yields maximum velocity. Just like before, the coach and the athlete are all ears, taking in my out of the box, Zen suggestions, applied to baseball.
Five minutes later the young man set another record, throwing the ball 100.2 mph.
Anyone who thinks what you picture in your mind doesn’t matter – doesn’t know what he’s talking about. What you imagine makes a monumental difference. How you see yourself, how you breathe, where you breathe from – all of this matters – and matters A LOT.
In sports today, there’s a ton of emphasis on mechanics. I would say that 99.9999 percent of what athletes are taught has to do with where you place your foot, your head and your hand. But there’s virtually nothing on what to picture, what to imagine and how to really use the biggest mechanism you have – your own mind.
Incidentally, when the athlete focused on the images I gave him, guess what happened. Not only did he throw harder, but his mechanics improved. He moved as one unit rather than a group of independent body parts. And boy, was he ever smooth.
I love it when I witness this change in athletes, especially when it happens in a matter of minutes.
But the truth is that anyone in any endeavor can derive the same sort of positive benefits, once he knows how to use the power of mental pictures – as taught in the Zero Resistance Living System.
