Archery is not 90% mental nor is it 90% physical. To reach your peak in archery or in any sport you must establish a balance between the mental and physical aspects of that sport and to do that the athlete must create and operate a balanced mind-body system that employs what I call Present Process Thinking.

Description

Archery is not 90% mental nor is it 90% physical. To reach your peak in archery or in any sport you must establish a balance between the mental and physical aspects of that sport and to do that the athlete must create and operate a balanced mind-body system that employs what I call Present Process Thinking. Planning to Peak in Archery addresses that by illuminating concepts in these critical areas: forming the proper perspective for high-performance archery, understanding and planning for the major aspects of the mental game, overcoming target panic, establishing a proper competitive attitude, and, lastly, building your own unique, innovative written plan – a focus map – to guide and control your performance thoughts.

Remember, random thinking produces random performance and random results.

Athletes who want to peak, PLAN THEIR WORK, and WORK THEIR PLAN!
