Michael Neill talks with Denise Holland about pressure? How is it sportspeople often comment that they need to feel under pressure to be able to perform well? What’s going on with this perspective and is it healthy? Is feeling under pressure helpful to athletes? What happens to the physical body and mind when human beings continuously feel under attack, threatened, or frightened? In contrast, is there an optimal state of mind and body for sustainable high performance? Often we witness sparks of genius appear out of no-where and in many cases when the chips are down, what’s behind this human phenomenon? Is it true that pressure is an inside job, that circumstances, people and situations can never be the cause of feeling under pressure? If so, this is well worth investigating further, don’t you think, nothing and no-one to blame for your experience or behaviours!
