Some get stoned, some get strange, but sooner or later it all gets real. - Neil Young
There's an indescribable joy in optimal performance, at performing at one's best.
That moment when you feel that you've finally internalized all the learnings of the past training sessions, when suddenly everything falls into place and you feel that .... you're flying!
Today I had by far my very best windsurfing session ever! On the way out - leaving the coastline at my back surfing towards the wide ocean - I gained a lot of speed, since I finally managed to completely lean backwards (being hooked with the harness) while I had most of the weight on the back foot.
Like that the weight passed from the board to the sail and it literally felt as if I was flying!
What an incredibly moment!! Right now I feel as if I was high, haha!

Gimme the peak!
Oh yes, one can definitely get addicted to these type of highs.
If you've been there once, you only want to repeat it over and over again.
Today the way back to the coast was rather arduous. When the waves came from the right, as well as the wind, both pushing the board into the same direction, it was hard to get into the right flow and gather way.
However, the way out was 100% fun!
Right after finishing the turn I quickly brought myself into the perfect position, hooked the harness and wohoooo took off!
I was getting so fast flying over the water surface that I sometimes needed to stop and hold on for a moment in order to take a deep breath, assuring that I wasn't dreaming, haha!
The ultimate rewards of peak performance are found in breaking through to a higher level of development in oneself. And that was exactly what I experienced today.
These breakthroughs bring a sense of freedom. Internal resistance falls away, and often, our sense of self with it. Absorbed in the task at hand, we access more of our innate potential. - Scott Jeffrey on Peak Performance
Now peak performance can be reached in whatever field of interest: business, arts, sales, mathematics, writing, just to name a few.
Peaking means that you're able to awake the very best inside yourself in order to become best at something.
It's all there, you only need to release it!
Look the world in the eye and go peaking!
Happy weekend, steemians!
