I finally put myself out there and took risks!! I'm so happy! Thank you so much, my mindset changed so much after our talks!
The psychology techniques that I learned from you have proven very valuable in my career thus far, so I thank you for that. You can absolutely say that! But I would add that it has proven very valuable in both my athletic and professional career. I try and apply the same techniques in my finance career and it has been extremely useful! I find that I am able to dial in and focus when it counts and also control my nerves during presentations!
Hi Steve, I've been meaning to email you for the last few months but when XXX won 5A state yesterday on a dive he couldn't do last fall, I had to get it done. To set it up, he led most of the meet with his team mate right behind him the whole time. In high school, he likes to do his high scoring dives first to get in the lead. For state, the divers compete their first 8 dives during prelims in the morning. There aren't many people in the crowd because swimmers have their prelims the afternoon before but the last 3 dives are part of finals when it is very loud and energetic. His twisters are big crowd pleasers but they are also his best so he chooses to compete them in the morning and saves two of his toughest dives for finals when he should be well ahead. Going into the last dive, XXX was in first by just 6 points. His teammate had a front 3 1/2 for his last dive and usually did not score too high because it is such a tough dive. This time he nailed it leaving XXX needing a very good dive on a dive that he has consistently performed but still scared him to do. His high school goal is to win state four years in a row and being the defending champion, there was a huge amount of pressure to do it again. Since he won, you know he did it and I can't tell you how proud I was of him for diving his hardest dive under extreme pressure. You obviously gave him some great tools to deal with his fear so thank you for that. Thanks again, His Mom
Thank you for all you did for me during our Derby Campaign! You're thoughts and advice were priceless.......so helpful!
Many thanks from the bottom of my heart. Words can't express!!! It all worked Dr.Steve!!
I just wanted to thank you for all the help you've given me in the past couple of months. I feel like I have a better mental outlook on running (and life!) than I did before I started.
What I have learned so far should be taught to every student!
It worked! You da man... I had a great rest of the race and finished 4th overall - my best finish by a lot. So even a moderate "beginner's" shift in my focus at the beginning changed my race by quite a bit!!
Hi Steve, XXX has been doing so well lately that parents are starting to ask who has been helping him so I hope it is ok if I shared your contact info with another family. We just got back from CA where XXX won West Nationals. He literally crushed the competition and bettered his personal best score. The skill that gave him the most trouble before has become one of his favorites. Thanks for all you have done for him.
