STACK has offered plenty of advice about getting your body game-ready. However, we have not compiled a manual about dealing with the mental side of competing throughout an entire season. Fortunately, such a manual exists, courtesy of former NBA Rookie of the Year and two-time NBA All-Star Ralph Sampson and Coach Koran Godwin. Their newly-released eBook, Winner’s Circle, is packed with tips and exercises to help you tackle the mental stress of a long athletic year.
Winner’s Circle is a superb guide for athletes looking to improve their mental preparation. It contains advice and tips on a variety of subjects, including the role of a pre-game routine, keeping a journal, maintaining specific eating habits the night before and the day of a game, and how to keep opponents from getting inside your head. The book also covers what to look for when you’re reviewing your performance and the importance of having a short memory before moving on to the next game.
STACK’s Take: Easy to download, the eBook is a simple read with lots of great advice for athletes wanting to enhance the mental part of their game. The tips primarily focus on routines that will prepare your mind and body and get them ready for every game.
