Gold Medal Mental Toughness Success Guide For Swimmers

Welcome to the Gold Medal Mental Toughness program! I am so excited that you have decided to work on your mental game in your sport. Hopefully, you already know that there are three very important areas in your sport for overall success: physical training, technical training (attention to how efficiently you perform), and mental training (how confident and mentally prepared you are in your mind). I have spent many years helping people with their mental game in different areas of their lives. It is very exciting to see the amazing changes they can make. The self directed version of the success guide will enable you to make the changes that you want and need in order to better enjoy your overall experience. The 1st edition of the success guide was designed to be used by my clients in conjunction with their sessions and audios. This edition has been redesigned to enable any swimmer to benefit from reading and applying the techniques, regardless of whether you have a mental coach. All you need is an optimistic and willing attitude that enables you to try something new. Read the guide carefully, have an open mind, and do each of the exercises consistently. You will begin to see changes in your mental toughness and progress in your sport as a result of your mental training. Helping competitive swimmers enhance their mental toughness and improve their performances has been one of the greatest passions of my life. I have worked with athletes of all ages from age group swimmers to Olympians and professionals. Translating how I help athletes into a self- directed book was challenging. However, this guide will help you create mental toughness and enhance your performance. While the guide is available as a standalone product, it is my belief that in order for you to obtain maximum benefit you may wish to use some of the additional resources contained in the book. By purchasing this book you are indicating that you are ready to join the elite swimmers who understand that mental toughness training is just as important as physical and technical training. Read on and enjoy great swimming.

The Swimming Psychology Workbook

THE ONLY SPORTS PSYCHOLOGY WORKBOOK THAT'S EXCLUSIVELY DESIGNED FOR SWIMMERS TO BUILD MENTAL TOUGHNESS AND BOOST THEIR ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE Swimmers hear it all the time... "Swimming is 90% Mental, and 10% Physical" "It's All in Your Head" "The Only One that Can Stop You is You" "You have to be Mentally Tough!" But what exactly do those sayings mean??? Without something concrete, it's difficult for players to understand what it specifically takes to have a mental approach primed for success. And rather than have a debate with someone who knows nothing about mental training or sports psychology... or read about theories and mental hacks that may or may not work off some random website...why not use a detailed, interactive, and engaging workbook that shows and teaches athletes how specific Sports Psychology concepts directly impact their performance in the swimming pool?

And unfortunately in society today all athletes are under the spot light as they are judged by many of their friends, family, and peers by the level of success they have in the pool, which makes it absolutely crucial for athletes to be mentally tough and resilient. Thus, after completing our workbook athletes will undoubtedly be equipped with the Mental Tools to: 1. Develop Supreme Confidence in their Skills and Abilities to Flourish 2. Build Mental Toughness and Resilience to Overcome Obstacles 3. Learn to Handle Intense Pressure and Paralyzing Adversity 4. Conquer their Crippling Fears and Severe Anxiety 5.

Choking Under Pressure During Crucial Moments of a Competition, Sitting on the Sidelines Meet after Meet despite All your Hard Work and Effort, Becoming accustomed to Losing Over and Over, not Stepping Up when the team Needs it Most, and being Unable to see any Progress toward Improving and Reaching Success can be EXTEMELY PAINFUL, DISAPPOINTING, and DISCOURAGING.
