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.

Fantastic book. Offers great insight to not only how some of the most elite athletes operate. But how the everyone day person can elevate their performance in what ever area
This is absolutly essential with your sporting endevours, especically in Golf (golf focused but applies to all sports). If you're a young person making your way into life an absolute must. Really works on explaining about the process to succeed and not replying on a certain result, the result will take care of itself
I'm an elite athlete of 10 years training age and this was totally awesome! Instant performance results. It's golf heavy, so I just adapted to my own sport when necessary. Very informative and the best phycology book I've ever read outside Uni. Fully worth it. Read it 3 times already.
"love it every time"
i learn and relearn the lessons of self leadership every time i listen to this book.
This story is a wonderful "pep talk" helping everyone achieve their potential and greatness and to find and nurture the exceptional person inside them. Although I don't play golf I really enjoyed the book and the stories and the way it has been narrated by the author.
"Must read for any competitive golfer."
A great starter or boost for anyone looking for a smarter approach to lower scores.
"Amazing book with great concepts"
If anyone says this book is "just for golfers or athletes" they honestly missed the whole point of it. I loved this book and will definitely reread it in the near future.
Dr Rotella has great insight into performance dynamics. He hit home with me on several fronts.
"Real coach with useful advice"
Bob Rotella has plenty of experience coaching others to succeed and gave great advice in his book. This is the coach I wish I had when younger! I don't usually listen to a book twice, but I'll listen to this one again as it applies to so many areas of life. He got a little religious at the end which I didn't love, but he did it tastefully and provided value there too. Even an atheist can understand the importance of using the talents and circumstances life has given, and the importance of believing, especially in oneself. So I give his book 5 stars!
"A must read for competitive athletes"
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.
Very easy listening! It made my daily 30 min work commute fly by! I will definitely listen to the book again
"mental help in sports"
There are alot of good takeaways from this book. Great for a sports person looking for help with a mental side of the game.
One of Bob Rotella's best books! Practical, understandable,Inspiring! This is a book for sports minded and non-sports minded people.
"feel very empowered"
great listen and really helped my focus on doing the right things and has certainly helped my Golf game improve
Bob never fails, great read for sports and business minds. Will read again and again.
"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.
