Publisher's Summary

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.

    "MUST HAVE"

    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

    "Awesome!"

    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.

    "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.

    "Great for Golfers, not as Great for others"

    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.

    "Profound revision of life"

    The articulate messages by Dr Rotella left me feeling reborn and validated in so many aspects of life. The messages inside the book are of all equal value and importance. My largest take away is from the numerate processes and tools Dr Rotella outlined for healthy mind and body. These determinants have immediately opened my eyes and helped allow me to pursue my goals with a newfound sense of aspiration. I would recommend How Champions Think to anyone and everyone. Truly excellent literature. Thank you Dr Rotella.

    "Great book for golfers, business or sport"
    Would you consider the audio edition of How Champions Think to be better than the print version?

    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.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The clear delivery and easy to follow ideas


    What does Bob Rotella bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    His own knowledge and background


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No
