Description - Mind Gym by Gary Mack
Golfing great Bobby Jones said, "Competition is won or lost on the six-inch playing field between the ears." In Mind Gym, noted sports psychology consultant Gary Mack teaches athletes the lessons he's learned about how the mind influences peak athletic performance as much as physical skill does, if not more so. Through forty accessible lessons and inspirational anecdotes from prominent athletes - many of whom he has worked with - Mack shares the same techniques and exercises he uses to help elite athletes build mental "muscle." These engaging stories - covering such themes as overcoming adversity, staying motivated, and following one's dreams - inspire both recreational and serious athletes to perform at their best by choice rather than chance.
