Our next blog focuses on developing the best mindset for success, despite mistakes, emotions, and fears.
While many books out there provide a great deal of information and lessons by some of the world’s best practitioners, researchers, teachers, coaches, and performers, Mind Gym: An Athlete’s Guide to Inner Excellence by Gary Mack and David Casstevens provides performers with a resource guide to jump into action and get to work on their mental game. Mack and Casstevens wanted to create a mental game resource with exercises, lessons, and questions for athletes and performers to work through, much like they work through their conditioning routine in the weight room. Over the next six blogs of this series we will explore what the inner game is, think about actually living out our performance dreams, creating a mind-set for success, and then finally getting into our performance zone. Our first blog focuses on getting started with the inner game.
