The Triathlete’s Mind Game by Dan Schaefer Ph.D

Imagine, for a moment, that you are standing on the beach preparing to enter the water for your swim.
Looking out into the water you see it covered with floating debris. Fifty gallon drums, railroad ties, slicks full of garbage, plastic debris & other junk.

How well would your swim go?

Allow your mind to run out to your biking and your marathon course. A broken road, construction material, washouts. You get the idea. Many discover that their Mind Game, at times, spreads debris over a playing field or a business environment.
The obstacles, as described, can be seen quite clearly and with some effort can be cleaned up and removed. Consider the impact if all these obstacles were invisible.
You can only control what you can see, hear or feel.
Dan Schaefer, PhD and CEO of Peak Performance Strategies offers the following survey to help you gain your competitive edge. The survey will highlight the debris that may contaminate your performance. The Mind Game Strategies will help you maintain control and to keep it off the course.
