About the Art of competing

"There is a logical story to the way the course has been laid out. This Part one of the Art of Competing is more about the preparation and laying the foundation for how you will compete.

It is natural for a competitor to want to build his or her mental toughness. This Course starts with building your mental toughness and then goes onto the tools you need in order to implement your knowledge.

Fear is a natural component of human beings, and of every competitor, so once an athlete is mentally tougher we needed to tackle the fears that often interfere with toughness.

Mindset College shows you how to recalibrate fears into manageable boxes. It is a unique way of looking at fear and very effective. Having helped athletes overcome fears, often results did not match the progress until I realized that there was a problem of fears from the past resurfacing. Only when the athlete understood and dealt with this residue did the mindset change and athletes began to fly. 

Once an athlete has fears and doubts under control they can begin the process of building locker room power.

Have fun with this one!"
