From bestselling author Bob Rotella, America's preeminent sports psy-chologist, a groundbreaking guide to success in all aspects of life - not just sports - from business to relationships to personal challenges of every vari-ety. This exciting book is not a collection of Rotella's theories; it consists of performance principles that have proven themselves in countless competi-tive situations, in arenas from which only the strongest minds emerge tri-umphant. It's a book full of insights that you can learn and use the next morning - in the office, the classroom, or wherever your quest takes you - told not in abstractions, but through case studies and stories drawn from Rotella's years teaching sports psychology, counseling athletes and con-sulting for Fortune 500 companies. It explores how to keep the mind from holding you back, whatever your physical gifts or other talents. It's about how to make a commitment, how to persevere, how to deal with failure - and how to train your mind to create a self-image that promotes confidence and accomplishment.
Any successful life starts with how you see yourself. And with these pearls of wisdom from the nation's preeminent sports psychologist, you can learn to achieve the success of your dreams.
How Champions Think, in contrast to Rotella's previous books, is not golf-specific or even sports-specific. Instead, Rotella, who's counseled everyone from business executives to NBA teams, is aiming at a broad general readership. Here are pearls of wisdom gleaned from decades of experience as the nation's preeminent sports psycholo-gist that are applicable to business, relationships, parenting, artistic achievement and more.
Rotella is a longtime house author whose prior books have consistently sold well - total North American sales approach 1 mil-lion units. He has a devoted following and unmatched credentials and How Champi-ons Think has the potential to expand his readership into new territory. Read less
