Rehearsal has been used for decades by individuals in various fields to achieve their potential on any given day, under a variety of conditions. Mentally envisioning a series of challenges and rewards, all the way to the goal, gears up the mind-body team to work together at top capacity.
- Rehearsing realistic fatigue, aches and pains, negative messages, doubts, etc., desensitizes one to the challenges.
- A series of small steps. The conscious frontal lobe reprograms the reflex brain to stay focused by breaking down a challenge into segments, one leading automatically to the next to the successful finish.
- As the rehearsal is repeated and fine tuned, the reflex brain can be reprogrammed to move you from one step to the next, instead of responding to the negative motivation reflex due to stress/pressure.
