1) Mental game skills to turn pressure and nerves into an advantage
WINNING STATE teaches athletes that no amount of physical training will eliminate nervousness. The idea is a myth. Athletes learn a new of skills to face nerves head on and turn heart-pounding pressure into an advantage.
4) Mental toughness skills to make hard decisions
Athletes learn that decisions are black or white. We do or we don’t. We go train or we blow it off. We go to class or we ditch it. We study hard for the test or we don’t. As we’re deciding whether to work or slack off our mind plays tricks on us: “You can get away with it just this one time.” What a mistake! The heck with getting away with it. WINNING STATE teaches athletes how to make mentally tough decisions that propel them forward, toward becoming a champion. Success on and off the field takes mental toughness.

In the competitive sports context, WINNING STATE coined the term “flip the switch” to give athletes a simple idea to take into competition. Athletes learn how to switch on a competition process loaded with mental toughness tactics to get the most out of themselves under nerve-wracking pressure.

WINNING STATE teaches athletes how to give themselves an inspiring pep-talk when the pressure is on. Athletes learn self-talk strategies to verbally win the battle between doubting and believing. WINNING STATE provides numerous examples of great self-talk to put doubt in its place and go for it.

WINNING STATE teaches athletes mental toughness tactics to stay poised and composed under pressure. WINNING STATE is the first to make the distinction: mental toughness drives confidence.
