The Physiology of Excellence

This is my “depressed stance.”  When you’re depressed, it makes a lot of difference how you stand.  The worst thing you can do is straighten up and hold your head high because then you’ll start to feel better.  If you’re going to get any joy out of being depressed, you’ve got to stand like this.

Charlie Brown

“It is madness to only prepare yourself physically and leave your mental frame to chance. The difference that makes the difference is learning how to feel strong in your mind as well as your body. Every athlete should understand that you don’t have to have a gold medal around your neck to feel like you’re a champion.”

Roger Black

This was developed by John Grinder and is simplicity itself. It is also exceptionally powerful. In a nutshell, Grinder said that our behaviour (what we do and how well we do it) is inextricably linked with our mood and thinking, our posture and our breathing.

The fastest way to change our state is to change our breathing. So, if you’re stressed, you’re likely to be taking fast and shallow breaths. Change your breathing to deep and slow breaths! Then alter your posture. Posture and breathing are closely linked to how we feel. For example, it would be almost impossible to feel depressed when we are breathing calmly and standing upright with a huge smile across our face.

Then adopt a state you feel would be a useful one to have. For example, if I start to become nervous when I’m presenting, I move into deep breathing techniques, stand more upright and then ask myself the question “what would a better state be to be in?” If the answer is confidence, I fake it! I act “as if” I was confident. Strangely enough, a couple of minutes of doing all this and I notice that any nerves I did have are either totally disappeared or “at worst” lessened considerably.
