Do you want your body to function more like an instrument of success than a slave to the system?
We are conditioned from a young age to use adrenaline and the Fight & Flight System indiscriminately to get more done in our day, and soon struggle to switch off after work, we work longer hours, have sleepless nights, partake in midnight snacks, maybe even misuse alcohol and/or drugs and so on.
Neutralising the Fight & Flight System necessitates behavioural adaptations that are driven predominantly by how we feel about the proposed adaptation. How we feel about it depends in turn on what we think about the adaptation.
This is a very simple progression: Thoughts-Feelings-Action.
Two things about our thought life need to be taken to heart.
the more important/bothersome something is the more we tend to think about it.
thinking of positive things make us feel good, thinking of negative things make us feel bad.
These two things are largely controllable. The key principle: waste less time over-thinking (mental interference), but if you do feel impelled to think, focus on the next step you need to take to manifest your heartfelt goal/vision. The sad truth is that engaging in mental interference on a daily basis will end up rewiring our brains that will lead to ineffective coping mechanisms that may well saddle us with a life style disease.
The silver lining is that this situation CAN be corrected by reversing the order of the sequence of events described above. Mental interference leads our thoughts to spiral out of control, which then makes us feel bad, which then drives us to engage in ineffectual coping behaviours.
The calminthestormsa method directly impacts behaviour, teaching you how to bring about a composed and calm demeanour that will make you feel good and enable you to focus your mind and your thoughts.
When an archer is shooting for nothing
He has all his skill.
If he shoots for a brass buckle
He is already nervous.
If he shoots for a prize of gold
He goes blind
Or sees two targets-
He is out of his mind!
His skill has not changed. But his prize
Divides him. He cares.
He thinks more of winning
Than of shooting-
And the need to win
Drains him of power.
