In sport there is an increasing awareness of how important mental factors are within athletic performance and it is recognized that physical talent is not the only component which leads to success. At the highest level it is often the mental game which separates the elite performers from the good performers.

Being mentally tough is the desire of every competitive sportsman or woman. It is also what distinguishes exceptional and average performers apart.

“One of the most profound things validated through study after study of many great athletes, is that if you take a group of athletes with equal ability and some receive mental training while others do not, the ones who were given mental training will always outperform those without. Why?  Simple: because those who use mental training skills develop a Mental Edge” - Gonzalez
