Why This Contest?
“Every day, I get calls from people who want to perform better. These calls come from athletes, coaches and parents of athletes. They also come from people who want to perform better on their jobs, in their businesses and at school. They all want to learn how to be focused, confident, relaxed and mentally tough.
And over the years, I have counseled mentally tough, top achievers from sports, business and the military. Some of my patients have overcome huge obstacles in their lives. I have coached many people who have bounced back from war, from serious injuries, from bitter divorces, from financial setbacks and from many of life’s significant and powerful setbacks.
Some of the people have impressed me with their great resolve, focus, resiliency, spirit and mental toughness when facing very difficult situations.
