    The truth is, both are critical for success. If you were to embark on a journey, you would first need to decide exactly where you want to go outcome goal.

As the pianist entered the flow state, heart rate and blood pressure decreased and the major facial muscles relaxed. That means you need to keep your expectations in check.

    To maintain that flow state, one must seek increasingly greater challenges. In a study performed with professional classical pianists who played piano pieces several times to induce a flow state, a significant relationship was found between the flow state of the pianist and the pianist's heart rate, blood pressure, and major facial muscles. This graph illustrates one further aspect of flow: it is more likely to occur when the activity at hand is a higher-than-average challenge above the center point and the individual has above-average skills to the right of the center point. He almost needs the thrill of competition and a match to perform well. Griffith's Psychology of Coaching, Psychology and Athletics, and contributions to The Athletic Journal were written during his time researching at the University of Illinois. This is exhibited in well designed games, in particular, where players perform at the edge of their competency as they are guided by clear goals and feedback.
