“He’s in the zone!” Sports fan or not, there's a pretty good chance that you’re familiar with this expression. “The Zone” is that special place where an athlete is locked in, so to speak. If you’ve played sports, you may have had your moments in it, but we tend to recognize and remember those who do it on the biggest of stages. It’s like the night Reggie Jackson hit 3 home runs in the World Series on 3 consecutive pitches, or when Michael Jordan dropped 63 on the Celtics in the playoffs. You can feel that they’re in a different place. It’s as if they know they’re experiencing rarefied air, and they know that they’re going to be successful. You might hear an announcer suggest that they must be “unconscious,” when in actuality, the truth is that they are fully conscious, just on another level! You don’t have to play professionally to know what it is to be in the zone. In baseball, the ball looks like a beach ball coming to the plate. In basketball, you get a rhythm going so sweet that you can almost see the ball swishing through the net before it ever leaves your fingertips, And in golf, you feel like you could take every swing blindfolded. That is the zone. Every sport has that potential experience. You see plays happening before they do. You are fully present. Confident. Fearless. Grounded.
