From best-selling author Bob Rotella, America's preeminent sports psychologist, a groundbreaking guide to success in all aspects of life - not just sports - from business to relationships to personal challenges of every variety.
Acclaimed sports psychologist Bob Rotella has advised everyone from professional golfers to NBA superstars to business executives on how to flourish under pressure and overcome challenges. Now, for the first time, he's distilled his decades of in-depth research and practical experience into a potential-unlocking guide for everyone.
This exciting audiobook is not a collection of Rotella's theories; it consists of performance principles that have proven themselves in countless competitive situations, in arenas from which only the strongest minds emerge triumphant. 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 consulting 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.

Loved this book. No nonsense and straight forward. Bought it because I thought my daughter, who is a competitive swimmer could benefit and ended up learning so much myself. Highly recommended.
Although I don't play golf, basketball or baseball this book delivered on it's point to educate the reader on the champions mind.
If I was a golfer I'd probably rate 5stars on all three (Most examples Mr Rotella takes are from golf). I do recommend this book highly to every competitive athlete out there.
Yes, well thought out and inspirational.
Very concrete approach to success and what it takes to achieve it.
His concrete approach and analysis to the characteristics that produce results.
I enjoyed the entire book! It seemed to fly by.
Excellent stories and insights into how Dr. rotella trains his clients to achieve greater success through focus, determination, and enthusiasm. This book is particularly helpful for Golfers and Golf fans.
For the non Golfers, there are still examples from other sports, such as college basketball that make the lessons enjoyable. However, far and away this book caters to the Golf population so read on if you love golf but try something else if you do not.
"Useful for golf and life"
As with all Dr Bobs books, there is fantastic information in "How Champions think"
Dr Bob has a relaxed style of reading and gets his message across in an unhurried manner.
Practical, impactful, just plain great!
I've already recommended this to everyone I can!
Looking forward to listening to it again.
"Great book for golfers, business or sport"
Listene to this book pretty much all the way through in a couple of sittings and loved it. Clear delivery backed up by evidence and inside stories from the people Dr Bob works with makes this a clear and easy listen that can be put into practice.
I have been back and listened again a couple of times since and I keep picking up new areas to work on.
The clear delivery and easy to follow ideas
His own knowledge and background
will give you a understanding of how to be be the best at what you do and what steps you need to take to become a champion.
