You'll learn how to "seize your season" and become more fully alive... become powerfully certain that you can make your vision come true... put aside distractions that don't matter, identify the price of your vision, and pay it... claim your success, and actually enjoy it!

 

Discover The Secret to Becoming a Champion— Regardless of Ability, Speed, Schedule, Stats, Critical Acclaim or AP Polls


Here's a hint: true success has little to do with what others say about you and everything to do with what you say to yourself.
When you or your team possesses the ability to think about success, competition and winning in ways that are more internal and less external, amazing things begin to take shape.
If you're looking for better performance from your team, look at the internal playbooks of your team members. I have a long history of helping college and professional teams and athletes clear out their mental clutter so they can increase their own level of trust in themselves and their abilities.
Mental clutter can manifest itself in many ways, including:

* Doubts about performance
* Fear of failure
* Past disappointments, frustrations and losses
* Judgments of themselves and others
* Personal issues that have nothing to do with sports

Any combination of these can clutter up the minds of your players at game time, which almost always results in players who aren't living up to their athletic potential when you need them the most.
