Unlock the keys to happiness and freedom, fuel performance, and achieve excellence in sports and in life with the clarity of stillpower—finding the ultimate zone within.
What if everything you’ve been taught about performance is wrong? When the going gets tough, stillpower—not will power—is the best response. For years, athletes, coaches, parents, and organizations have searched for the secrets to optimum mental performance. Stillpower offers a simple, revolutionary, yet dynamic, approach for the future.
Stillpower uses real-life examples to explore such questions as: What is “the zone” and what must we do (or not do) to get there? Why do we need to understand the difference between insight and intellect? Is goal setting really useful? Why doesn’t willpower work? And why do the best mentors focus on a person’s state of mind and not behavior? Virtually all of us—athletes and non-athletes alike—are looking outside of ourselves, trying to find the secret to success. Stillpower encourages us to look within to finally find the answers.
