Think Like a Professional Athlete

In this video clip I talk to Dr. Manny about my new book, Life as Sport, and how anyone can reach their goals using the skills taught to elite performers.

Athletes train not only physically, but mentally to compete against the best in their sport as well as themselves. Life As Sport details evidence-based techniques to calm yourself down and focus your efforts whether you’re on the playing field, the training floor or at home with your kids.

Through positive self-talk, it’s possible to accept defeats as an inevitable part of life and shape them into learning experiences. Surfer Laird Hamilton, in addition to other athletic professionals, promote positive self-talk and enjoyment in Life As Sport.
