Kevin Cottam is an elite figure skating coach and choreographer, and has the great responsibility to do the final talk.
Have you have ever had the experience that you were so concentrated so much you completely lost track of time? How can you get 'in the zone' and reach such a state of flow? It's all about connection. Connection to your mind, body and spirit will help you to get into the zone where everything goes automatically
Visualisation is key for connection with your mind. As a figure skating coach, Cottam told his athletes to recreate the image of their performance in their head before they stood on ice. It's a common tactic used by athletes. The great Olympic swimming champion said he already finished the race in his head before he jumped into the water.
Breathing is the second crucial aspect. How many people pay attention to your breathing, unless a TEDx speaker makes them reflect on it? When we don't breath, we don't live. A connection with this vital energy source is fundamental to get into the zone.
Meditation is another method the achieve this. Seek your internal knowledge and reach your spirit, says Cottam: "you deserve to be the best. Connect with mind, body and spirit and get in the zone". That's where the magic happens.
