What is the Real Target?
We tend to think about goal setting in this way: I set a great goal, work for it and once I achieve it, I will feel great, I will be happy, I will be complete. My experience and science says that we have it the wrong way. The first work we need to do is to create the inner environment of feeling great, being happy, connected and complete. Then and only then we have a better shot at achieving our desired outcomes. Our first and most fundamental work is to learn how to create our Zone of Genius and relate to our practice from that state.

And the description did not vary much by culture, gender or age; old and young, rich and poor, men and women, Americans and Japanese.
The Meaning of a Ritual
The difference between a routine and a ritual is the content. The form could be the same but the content is what sets them apart. In my case, developing new practices around my breath, my sensations, a closer connection with my body and a sharper and better directed mental focus were the source of my inner transformation. Mastery, is the ritual of creating the internal body-mind state to perform at our best to the requirements of the situation.
The Quality of the Experience
This process not only transformed the quality of my inner experience while playing tennis, it also improved my external achievements and it had an important impact in my life as well. I consider this to be my biggest GIFT to the younger players and probably one of the greatest gifts of high performance.
