The above may sound preposterous. It may even disturb you. How on Earth can I make such a bold statement? “Better grades without studying?” – yeah right.
From a rational, linear, left-brained only approach to thinking about success, you’re probably right. But the right-brain, big picture facts are in.
A student and/or an athlete can make dramatic improvements in the classroom as well as on the field, just by changing the mental pictures he or she carries around all day long.
No, I’m not talking about positive thinking. I’m talking about seeing yourself with “different eyes,” eyes that believe in you, eyes that aren’t afraid of failing, eyes that aren’t criticizing you or putting you down for not having a mathematical brain, or being lousy at spelling or for being a clumsy horrible athlete.
Those who discovered the secret of how you can make RAPID change in your results can vouch for what I’m saying.
For example, let’s take an 18-year old boy, Ryan, who studied for six months and paid several thousand dollars for tutoring with the hope of improving his SAT scores enough to get a scholarship.
Well, the “study harder” method proved 100% futile.
Then Ryan’s father, Randy, hired a “mental game expert” who would teach his son a technique called “Theatre of the Mind.” The technique taught his son to relax and begin picturing himself in a totally different way. Ryan learned how BIG to make himself in the new picture – and exactly what emotions and feelings to draw upon.
Ryan didn’t devote any study time to his SAT test over the next few weeks. All he did was work on his self-image with Theatre of the Mind. And guess what happened?
Ryan retook the test – and this time he did well enough to earn a “Florida Bright Future’s Scholarship” to the tune of $9,000.00 per year. Over four years, that’ll save his “Poppa” $36,000.00.
Now, as I mentioned earlier, this technique doesn’t just make you smarter, it’ll also improve your athleticism. How do we know for sure? Because Randy is also a baseball pitching coach who trains his “young guns” to throw 90 mph (no easy task, to say the least).
With the help of this same “mental game” coach, Randy has helped 18 boys in the last six months break the 90 mph threshold. Two have even thrown the ball over 100 mph in one specific drill he teaches.
So get this: 12 boys had reached what they thought was their peak. They counted on three to six months of hard, hard work to have another breakthrough. But the day the same mental game coach showed up and worked with them, records were broken within minutes.
Over the next two weeks, Randy and this coach had a 100% success rate in improving the MPH (velocity) of every boy who “believed” in what the mental game coach taught. There were two who did not improve – and the key factor as to why was obvious to Randy. They scoffed at the idea of the “mental game.” They didn’t believe it could work – and so it didn’t.
The truth is there are a lot of “mental game” approaches – including prayer – and none of them work if if you don’t believe in them. But even when you do believe in an approach, it’s pretty hard to have a success rate like I’ve just written about.

And remember: There’s no ‘trying harder’ with this program. Simply follow along with the DVD and your results will speak volumes.
