We all have a need to perform, whether it is in high-pressure situations, careers, or interpersonal relationships. Up to now, strategies and tactics to meet this need – particularly in terms of our daily habits and disciplines – were left to intuition and non-repeatable methods. Today, research is developing rigorously tested methods for improving performance in any domain, and we are beginning to quantify the physiological states that are associated with performance. We believe the same skills that elite trainers and coaches use to train mindset can help people pursue bigger goals and maintain key relationships.
