These breakthroughs, along with many more, have given coaches and athletes a new approach to handling pressure and winning.
The New Approach
Strength training, conditioning, plyos, and drilling sport-specific skills do not help athletes hand pressure, and never will.
The old approach was physical, The new approach is mental.
Athletes learn how to keep their wits under nerve-wracking pressure.
Doubt is the Enemy
Another WINNING STATE breakthrough was identifying the villain of every athletes performance story. Doubt is the enemy. The superhero is self-belief. Athletes find their superhero with the tactics in WINNING STATE books.
