I was surprised to discover that there seemed to be at least two identities within me. One was playing tennis; the other was telling him how. It was easy to that the primary feeling in the relationship between these o selves was mistrust. Self 1 didn't trust Self 2 to hit the 11, and precisely to the extent that he lacked trust, he would to force Self 2 to conform to his verbal instructions.
When I was on a streak, there was no talk in my head at Once I became aware of Self 1, it grew increasingly obvious that this judgmental little voice barking away like a drill sergeant inside my head was not the best thing for my tennis game. Self 1 was more of a hindrance than the great help he wanted me to think he was.
Thereafter I began looking for ays to decrease the interference of Self 1, and to see what ppened if I trusted the potential of Self 2. I found that lienTcbul3"qluet Self I and let Self 2 learn and play without iterference, my performance and learning rate improved igruficantly. My Self 2 was a great deal more competent than elf 1 gave him credit for.
Likewise, I found that when, as a acher, I didn't feed the instruction-hungry Self 1 of a tudent with a lot of technical information but, instead, jsted in the capacity of fa's Self 2 to learn, the progress ofmy tudents was three or four times faster than average, and they learned with much less frustration. In short, I found that Self 1 - the verbalizing, thoughtproducing self - is a lousy boss when it comes to control of the body's muscle system. When Self 2 - the body itself - is allowed control, the quality of performance, the level of enjoyment and the rate of learning are all improved.backducendispci.ga

Although after a time I realized that Self 1 was really a composite of different ego-personalities that would surface at different times, it was still helpful to group all these elements under the identifying label of Self 1 as the source of our interference with our natural selves. From this realization, a number of Inner Game concentration exercises were developed for tennis players. Some readers of 77K?
Inner Game of Tennis have associated Self 1 and Self 2 with the popular two-hemisphere brain theory, equating Self 1 with the rational, analytical left hemisphere and Self 2 with the intuitive right hemisphere. I don't make the same association because both right and left hemispheres are part of the human body.
I look at Self 2 as the total human organism, the natural entity. Self 1, on the other hand, does not actually have a physical existence; he is a phenomenon of mental self-interference who can and does interfere with both right- and left-hemisphere functions. Selfdoubt, for example, can be as crippling in a mathematics test as in a tennis-match, on a golf course or in singing a song.
But when the mind is concentrated and absorbed in what it is doing, interference is minimized and the brain is able to function closer to its potential. When Self 1 and Self 2 are clearly defined in this way, the basic premise of the Inner Game can be expressed in a simple equation. The quality of our performance relative to our actual potential is equal to our potential Self 2 minus the interference with the expression of that potential Self 1. Or: Performance - Self 2 potential minus Self 1 interference. The process of decreasing his control in favour of Self 2 proved to be a challenging one, which required the development of concentration techniques designed to keep Self 1 occupied in noninterfering activity and to consciously allow Self 2 to hit the ball.
Once Self 1 was focused in a concentration exercise, his interference with Self 2 decreased significantly, and performance instantly improved. In explaining it to the student, I would emphasize at the outset that this technique was primarily for increasing concentration and not for improving results, although improved concentration could only help performance. Then I would ask the student to say the word 'Bounce' when the ball bounced on the court and to say 'Hif when it made contact with the racket.
The object was simply to keep in visual contact with the ball and to say 'Bounce - hit, bounce - hif aloud with as much accuracy as possible. After letting go of their concern about results, most students would fmd evert at the Beginning stages of this exercise that their concentration was stronger, that they Returned many more balls than usual, that they hit balls they formally could not reach, and that in general their tennis was more effortless.
On difficult shots he might say 'Hif considerably after the ball had actually touched the racket; the tension in his voice was audible as he hollered 'H-i-i-it,' retreated, and took a defensive stab at a deep backhand. Sometimes I would intervene to remind the student that the only game he need play during this exercise was 'bouncehif - 'Forget about trying to get the ball back over the nest, and just play bounce-hit. When the bounce-hit became accurate, the body would move more fluidly and with more coordination; often, to his surprise; the student would see that he was hitting with more power as well.
Players were almost always surprised by their experiences: 'In order to really get into the bounce-hit accurately, I had to forget about all the things I usually tell myself about how to swing'; 'I was just doing bounce-hit, and somehow my body managed to get to the ball and hit it better than I thought I knew how.
