Essential Mental Skills for Excellence in Athletics and Academics
Train Your Mind as Well as Your Body
When we watch performances between equally skilled individuals, we can easily determine which one has superior Mental Skills and uses them to maximize performance outcomes. These are the techniques that enable a performer to get into an optimal level of arousal, a State of Flow, a Zone of Peak Performance: To psych up for competition or to calm down when too nervous. These skills enable competitors to be Mentally Tough, to recover quickly from errors and other disappointments during a performance, and to avoid "choking" under pressure.
We are NOT BORN with these skills, we MUST LEARN them. They are as essential to a comprehensive training program as physical skills and mechanics.
You have a Physical Skills coach . . . you need a Mental Skills Coach to keep you fully competitive, whether in school, the arts, athletics, or in business.
