Let me talk about the sport of SPORTS for a bit – but keep in mind that the same applies straight across the board.
In any sport, you’re playing a game that is supposedly all about mechanics. Almost all of an athlete’s training in a sport, whether through private lessons or as a team, is mechanics, mechnanics and MORE mechanics.
And then, when an athlete is unable to perform at his or her best, many of these same coaches suddenly come up with the idea that there is a solution to your woes – and it is “mental.”
In fact, you can ask almost any coach the following: “How much of this sport would you say is mental?” – you will almost always hear one of the following answers:
a. “90 percent.”
b. “Most of it.”
c. “Almost all of it.”
The legendary Yogi Berra will go down in history as the one player/manager with the most unique answer.
Yogi said, “Baseball is 90 percent mental and the other half is physical”
In Psycho-Cybernetics, one of the books Dr. Maltz referenced was Better Golf Without Practice. Even though I don’t golf, I bought the book a long time ago (it wasn’t cheap), read through it quickly – and put it away in a safe place.
Last week, one of my coaching members was in town, so I pulled it from my library and began going over it with him.
He was amazed, especially when Alex Morrison, the author, said that golf was 90% mental, 8% physical and the other 2% was…
Really? So buying those super-expensive clubs is only 2% of how well you play the game?
Morrison figured out his method of playing better golf in the early 1900’s – and the book Maltz referenced was published in 1940.
So the mental game is NOT new stuff – yet it IS to most coaches because they don’t know it and cannot teach it.
Lucky for me, I began learning the mental game at the University of Iowa, as an 18-year old freshman. Each fall, a professional coach speciallzing in the mental game, spent a day with the entire wrestling team, teaching us how to take charge of our minds and get the most out of ourselves.
It must not have worked because, under Dan Gable, Iowa only won 15 NCAA team tiles in 21 seasons. It must not have worked because Iowa, under Gable, only produced a roomful of national, world and Olympic champions/medalists.
It was ONLY hard work that helped Iowa win so much. It had NOTHING to do with this “mental game” stuff, right?
When Dan Gable spoke at my seminar in 2007, MOST of what he covered dealt with using your mind, via your imagination, to move ahead of the pack.
That’s why I put everything I had into the Theatre of the Mind program – a series of 7 CDs, 1 DVD, a workbook and much more – that contain a treasure-trove of Gable stories and experiences – HUGE takeaways that have helped me in every area of my life.
In this program, I tear the veil away from all the mysteries of how to use your mind. I make it super-simple for you to use and implement.
Whether you want more success in the classroom, board room, home, office or ball field, Theatre of the Mind will take you there and give it to you.
When this program was initally released, it ran for $139.95. But now, for a limited time, you can snag your program for $99.95 – a whopping $40 off.
Unlike other audio programs, you will want to listen to Theatre of the Mind again and again. And this isn’t ME saying so – it’s the people who got the program and did so.
Why listen more than once?
Because Theatre of the Mind is like a great move. A classic. Each time you watch you gain deeper insight, deeper understanding and a deeper connection between your mind and the whirld you’re creating each and every day.
Like a great movie – a classic – the information in this program will make you smile, make you laugh, make you cry and make you go “Aha, Eureka. That’s it. That’s what I was doing when I was at my best and I didn’t even realize it. Now I can duplicate this type of success in other areas of my life, too – over and over again.”
Claim your copy of Theatre of the Mind NOW and watch your life grow in ways that will boggle the unimaginative minds of those around you.
