There are many ways to get ahead in the body game. Learning to use your body in different ways always results in a new body perspective and new movement options as it expands your view on what is possible for you.
There are many ways to arrive at these new body perspectives. Some perspectives are easily gained as you learn skills that are easy for you to master due to a high level of function capacity and easy skills. Other skills might be more challenging where many times lots of work has to be put in. During the hard work phase you would make little discoveries along the way, and learn to use the levers of your unique body, or the length of one limb versus another.
Another way to discover these perspectives is through the guidance of someone who has been through the learning curve and understands how to be the tour guide, developing the journey for the new practitioner of the skill.
Another way that helps gain the new body perspective is putting lots of thinking into its mechanics by constantly thinking it over and over, realizing there is something we don't know about it since we can't perform it, and looking for that component that will make everything seem different.
There are many examples of this process in many skills. Complex skills have their common pitfalls, a good example would be the entrance from standing on four into a bridge. Say a practitioner has a good open bridge. Many practitioners have a hard time rotating the shoulder correctly to get in and out of that position. While focusing on the movement of the shoulder could be confusing at first and lead to various falls or wrong positions, a simple que to use the head and look at the hand which is on the floor as you invert your head prior to placing the second hand down can make an easy fix, and open a new way of moving with great ease creating a way that wasn't accessible before and one where great complexities can be added.
As we progress in life we gain new perspective, learning a new language we learn a culture and perspective. As we learn how to better use our body we learn body perspective, our senses sharpen, our ability to understand other bodies grow with it. Looking for new perspectives is a substantial way of searching for and filtering inspiration and gaining complexity.
Enjoy the journey! Enjoy where you’re at!
