Patton wrote in his memories that when you give people a goal instead of a way, you will be surprised by how well and innovative they will perform. You can do the same in your practice by putting your partner in an unpleasant situation like several people standing on them (more effecting than the prone position) or being inside a painful level and finding a way out of it. Let them find a way even if it takes ten minutes and you will help each other recognize your abilities and clean yourself of fear.
A person working alone can do the same by working slowly on solving problems like finding your way with eyes closed out of a house or relaxing and balancing in a difficult position like balancing a cup of water on your head as you sit down and get up. You will not develop huge muscles from this practice but you will know to work with what you have at that moment.

The quote

” Don’t tell people how to do things, tell them what to do and let them surprise you with their results.
