More and more people are realising that, as with all areas of life, your results in sport depend crucially on your ability to use your mind effectively. Certainly many elite sports performers say that the mental aspects of the sport make the difference between being a champion or not. The way you use your mind determines the level of success and fulfilment you gain from sport, whether at professional or recreational level. Ahead of the Game is written for sports coaches, athletes and players of all levels who want to learn some leading edge yet tried and tested techniques and approaches to using your mind more effectively, and helping others to do the same. It draws on many of the techniques from Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), proven methods to achieve success. Ahead of the Game takes you through the techniques and approaches step by step, and is full of practical exercises and examples of how these techniques have been used with athletes so that you can adapt the techniques to suit you.
