Being The Best You Can Be
Performance, practice and momentum.
It is talked about at length in the book ‘The Inner Game of Tennis – W.Timothy Gallwey’ about the simple yet complex formula.
Performance = Potential – Interference
Here it states that your potential is compromised by interference.
Potential here being everything you can possibly be, achieve and create. Pure.
Interference here is commonly emotional, negative and everything surrounding your life and world that detracts away from your potential.
I disagree with this motion.
Performance = Potential + Interference
To insinuate all external factors take away from your potential is false but to overlook them is even more foolhardy.
Negative Interference would be a negative (-2 for example) and a Positive Interference (maximising physical attributes) would be a 5.
This changes the formula from.
80 (Performance) = 100 (Potential) – 20 (Interference)
80 (Performance) = 100 (Potential) – 20 (Interference (25 + -5)).
In this situation the -5 would be something positive.
This change, albeit small highlights that not all changes external of nature than our pure self detract from our potential.
