What can we do during the off-season to get recharge and get ready? Some of us will take some needed time off; others will revamp equipment. The rest focus on the indoor season that’s quickly coming upon us and begin shooting scoring rounds as soon as they can. We look at this new season with optimistic eyes, thinking this year it will all come together.
During this transitional phase is a great time to look inward. If your equipment is shooting pretty well, the only way to make huge significant change is to work on the mind. And everyone admits that archery is primarily a mental game. One of the best ways to work in this area, is what I call Mind Tuning. Tuning the mind can give you a significant jump in performance. This is because we seldom work on the mind. Most people only look to their form or bow tune for answers. They never think about cleaning up their minds to improve their game. This is mostly because there aren’t any well known methods to do this until now.
Hypnosis is a fast efficient way to tune the mind. What I mean by this is that you clean out all the old programming that holds you back. This information consists of your personal stories that you have collected over time. The stories that don’t serve you anymore. These simple stories that consist of events or misunderstandings that happened at a time when your mind was wide-open, usually in early childhood. This is the time when people define their world in simple but powerful ways. These stories act as rudders guiding us through our lives, influencing our behaviors, and personal self image.
Fortunately through hypnotic techniques, the stories can be changed or neutralized in a way that is beneficial to your personal wellbeing. Once liberated from these restrictions, your performance potential grows exponentially, you are no longer held back by yourself. You get out of your own way.
Let’s take a moment and think about this for a minute, the only thing that changes from arrow to arrow is you. Once your shot execution has reached a decent level of repeatability, it doesn’t change that much between shots. What does change is our perceptions and needs. Like when we are shooting clean and the need to keep this going grows harder and harder. The truth of the matter is nothing has changed--an arrow is still just an arrow. The only thing that changes is you. The things that steer you off your course are the stories in your mind. So clean up the mental disharmony, dissolve the obstacles, and simplify your shot.
The off season is the perfect time to do this. We all now archery is 98% in our heads--so why not take this opportunity to set these important changes in motion. We all know that any change we implement takes time to integrated behind the bow--so don’t let this time evaporate. The time is now!
