Powerful Mental Techniques to Get Really Good — Faster

What Are The Mastery Practices?




These are the mental methods allowing you to more quickly reach skill masteryEach is worth learning separately. Together, reduce time wasted and money lost in the practice phase of the skill building process. 

There are four mastery practices:

    • Reflection, 
    • Visualization, 
    • Meditation, and 
    • Self-Talk.

A fifth one — Mindfulness — is optional; but it's well worth learning. Of the four, it is the toughest to master— but that makes it valuable. 

Why Learn The Mastery Practices?

It Works. Mental rehearsal has long be a used in sports psychology. 

It's The Only Way To Build Mental Skills. This is the case for motor skills and is likely to be true with pure mental skills such as listening.  

It Reduces Practice Time. Mastery Practices take you from novice to mastery in less time — they function like catalysts.

It Compliments Physical Practice. The brain does not distinguish between mental and physical practice. 

Separately, these are useful. Together, they're down right powerful.

Who Can Benefit




Athletes

You can't be world class unless you know — really know — how to use the mind to practice. It's as simple, and as complex, as that. 

Students

Most university degrees are way too much theory and not enough practice. Learning skills are better done with coaching outside the classroom.


Coaches

General coaching skills are valuable. They can be even more valuable if one knows how to use the mastery practices.

Managers

You have to learn what the competition (other managers) don't know to stand out. 

Hi Potentials

The best companies identify their high potentials. And one-way to get on that list is to keep learning. It makes you adaptable and more promotable.

Executives

Sure, in an 80-hour work week there is not much time available. But that doesn't mean one should give up on learning something new.

    Charles Lennox-Wright (1876-1932): Catching a Dream

    Description

    "Nurture your mind with great thoughts, for you will never go any higher than you think." -- British Statesman, Benjamin Disraeli


    Our thoughts are a major reason we fail to get desired results. Yet, few individuals know how to improve the functioning of their most important asset -- the way their mind thinks. They never learned the long known self-talk techniques from psychology and Buddhism that improve thought and individual performance.

    Your mind is like a garden. But rather than growing beautiful flowers, the winds of thought instead carry the seeds of weeds. Rather than seeing something beautiful, you have a tangled mess. But you can clear the weeds by using self-talk. 

    This class focuses on how to better use your self-talk to cultivate thought patterns that produce better results.
