To know our body is one of the first steps toward experiencing the Zone. Once aware of his body and confident in his abilities, the athlete may be more detached. This detachment is often expressed by the idea of letting go. When he broke the barrier of the four-minute mile, Roger Bannister was feeling “completely detached.” Some things cannot be enforced. You must release or free yourself and let them occur. We don’t try to fall asleep; we just let go. Similarly, to be successful, you don’t have to consciously try to focus on winning; you just have to be absorbed in the experience. To let go is to finally trust your body, surrendering to the movement, being absorbed by the task, separating from the result and being only in the present. Chris Evert summarizes it well: “It’s that knowledge, that confidence, and also that freedom of just letting go, letting the strokes flow.” And the undisputed master of letting go is Tim Gallwey, author of The Inner Game of Tennis, which says in essence: Knowing when to think and when to let go is the key for tennis at the peak of your potential.
