Even the most physically gifted athletes struggles in competition when they lose control over their thoughts and emotions. This book arms athletes with the tools they need to understand, manage, and maximise their mental and emotional forces - factors that often determine who's an all-star and who's an "also-ran". Kauss looks at how athletic performance fits into each client-athlete's lie experience. His "total athlete" system takes into account each athlete's internal strengths and weaknesses instead of applying a predefined set of mental training exercises. The author presents five case studies illustrating real challenges faced by real athletes. He helps readers identify the people and events in their lives that have either contributed to their success or in some way undermined their sport performance. Once they have pin-pointed these underlying factor, he teaches the athletes how to develop individualised mental training packages that will help them perform their best no matter how difficult the challenge. By analyzing and then rechanneling these forces in positive ways, athletes are better able to reach their potential.
