Thanks to organic communications with the muscles, the unconscious brain is already aware that the body is at its limit, and this always trumps consciously received information in the end. In this regard there is an important distinction to be drawn between willing a performance and believing in it in the specific sense of believing that applies to this discussion. Willing is wanting. It is an overt effort to believe that a coveted goal will be achieved. It is what we might call a topdown phenomenon. A goal is born at the conscious level, and then the mind tries to make the body believe it can physically realize that goal, yet the body may know itself to be quite incapable of satisfying the mind in a given case. Every athlete on the starting line of the women’s 1,500 m final of the Olympic Games believes she can win the gold medal in the sense of wanting to believe it willing it. But only a few of them believe it in their bodies; only a few believe it in the sense of being confident that it can happen.
