Understand the relationship between three integrally related concepts: process, focus and control. Our hearts need to be possessed by a dream of the person and player we can become, yet that dream needs to be earthed in the reality of measurable goals. Being preoccupied with a score or race time will distract us from playing in the current moment in time. Learn how to identify and set process goals. Focus on those processes and have a system that alerts you when you are distracted. In your pursuit of your dream you need to develop self-awareness and ensure that you have a plan to counter your emotional triggers when pulled.
