Improved mental ability means improved sports performance. Athletes who excel do so not just because of their physical abilities but because of their mental awareness, preparation, and skills as well. The Mental Athlete will help improve your overall performance by providing the tools, guidance, and practical insight you need to sharpen your mental skills.

This conditioning manual for the mind will help you:

  • Further enhance mental strengths and address weaknesses through effective self-assessments
  • Increase confidence in personal abilities and avoid the fear of failure
  • Heighten awareness of inner-thought processes and learn ways to improve them
  • Be free of inhibitions to initiate action and to respond intuitively and positively to challenges.
Take full advantage of your physical skills by fully developing your mental skills—the aim of The Mental Athlete!

It contains exercises, tests, and worksheets that help you move through the steps of mental achievement.
