Qigong Training Stuck In A Rut?

by Marcus on July 27, 2011

I first wrote about this subject (Qigong Exercises Going Nowhere Fast)over a year ago because nobody else in the Qigong multiverse was talking about it.

Fast forward 13 months and still nobody is talking about it. But I believe it is one of the major reasons why so many people quit practicing Qigong.

It’s not a question of ‘if’ this is going to happen to you, it’s a question of ‘when’. I first became aware of the solution to this problem after reading a book called ‘The Inner Game of Skiing‘. The timing couldn’t have been better.

I was stuck in a deep rut at the time. No matter what I seemed to do my training just seemed to be getting worse and worse. No results, no motivation, unable to relax, unable to enter a good QSoM, increasing levels of frustration. And then I found the answer.

Quite simply: I’d reached a plateau in my practice.

The solution to plateau’s is to keep practicing.

In fact if you ask any professional of any discipline who has been practicing improving skills for a long time, they recognise when they are entering a plateau and the get excited.


Because they know that plateau’s are the precursors of progress. This holds true from Qigong to Skiing and everything in between. So the next time you feel your training is going nowhere, get excited!
