“Suddenly I realised that I was no longer driving the car consciously. I was driving it by a kind of instinct, only I was in a different dimension…”

Ayrton 1992

“Suddenly I realised that I was no longer driving the car consciously,” he said. “I was driving it by a kind of instinct, only I was in a different dimension. It was like I was in a tunnel. Not only the tunnel under the hotel but the whole circuit was a tunnel. I was just going and going, more and more and more. I was way over the limit but still able to find even more. Then suddenly something just kicked me. I kind of woke up and realised that I was in a different atmosphere than you normally are. My immediate reaction was back off, slow down. I drove back slowly to the pits and I didn’t want to go out any more that day. It frightened me because I was well beyond my conscious understanding. It happens rarely but I keep these experiences very much alive inside me because it is something that is important for self-preservation.”

“I am able to experience God’s presence on earth. God gives me strength and life is a present that God has given to us… and that we are obliged to keep it, to handle it carefully.” Faith needs work, like everything else. It’s about individual self-realisation. Senna’s faith provided him with an armour of self belief.

In the Zone and Beyond...

Getting in the Zone

  • What being in the zone means
  • How being in the zone manifests itself
  • The relevance of goals and visualization to getting in the zone
  • His most inspiring interview
  • The importance of self-talk
  • Whether his research has led him believe whether or not everyone can get in the zone
  • How to get in the zone

25 years on Senna’s sentiments are truer than ever

Ayrton 1992

It is 25 years since Ayrton Senna memorably remarked that ‘the rich cannot afford to live on an island surrounded by a sea of poverty.’ It was Brazil, his beloved home country, that inspired the sentiment.

from

http://clydebrolin.com/blog/25-years-on-sennas-sentiments-are-truer-than-ever

and

https://www.facebook.com/craig.lock.31

Senna’s former physiotherapist Josef Leberer recalls: ‘During my first year with him we were driving through São Paulo when we saw a favela and I asked how he felt when he saw these people. He said it was very hard for him and it hurt a lot, but that you have to be powerful to effect any real change and he was not there yet. He was already doing things for the children even if none of it had become public knowledge. That convinced me he was capable of great things because he wasn’t doing it for the benefit of sponsors or for photoshoots. He wanted to do it.

‘His sport became a vehicle for him to reach a position to help change the world. That wasn’t the case when he started out as an 18-year-old but he had a driving force that kept him going. The more he did it the more he found out why. He was a sensitive man and a thinker who used to carry a lot in his head. He saw the real world and he could see there was so little he could do to change any of it. So his approach was to change himself.

 

You be the change you wish to see in the world!”

– Mahatma Gandhi

Senna Knew Winning Isn’t Everything!

Ayrton 1992

Ayrton Senna loved winning too, of course: he was obsessed by it as champions are. But what separates him is that he came to realise there was more to life – and that is why people are making films about him today. He had the visionary mystique to know in a world of plenty you do not have to have ‘have-nots’ to have ‘haves’.
