“I am well aware that there are many fine self-improvement books available. Psychologists, motivational speakers, religious leaders and business professionals write them. A competitor writes this one. The Mental Management® System is not based on psychology; instead, it is 100% based on competition. I did my apprenticeship in the arena of Olympic pressure. My credibility is not based on the course I took in college; it’s in my gold medals and the medals of my students. It’s not theory; it’s simply what works. My goal in this book is to share with you the mental techniques that I have discovered and used to win.”
~ Lanny Bassham from With Winning in Mind
This is another one of those books that I just happened to stumble upon and I’m glad I did. I picked it up as I was feasting on mental strength training books. It’s *really* (!) good. (Stunningly good, in fact.)
Lanny Bassham is a world-class athlete turned mental training coach. He shares his wisdom from the perspective of a guy who has been there and done that in the competitive arena—winning an Olympic gold medal and a ton of other championships. (He’s the third in medal count for the USA for all shooters.)
Lanny’s also a great story-teller and a precise teacher. He’s been at this for over four decades and it shows. He created what he calls the Mental Management® System and has trained everyone from PGA golfers and Olympic champions (and teams) to the FBI, Navy SEALs and Miss America contestants.
With Winning in Mind is the no-nonsense distillation of his Mental Management® System. It’s *packed* with Big Ideas. If you’re feeling it, I think you’ll dig the book. Get it here. Learn more about Lanny at www.mentalmanagement.com.
For now, let’s take a quick look at a handful of my favorite Big Ideas!
