“Laura helps you understand what’s going on in your mind when you’re performing well and when you aren’t, so you can actually reprogram yourself to perform the way you want to. It’s amazing!” -- Margie Goldstein-Engle, Olympic show-jumper and eight-time American Grandprix Association Rider of the Year.
One of the more frequent challenges faced by athletes is how to improve their performance. In many cases, the problem is rooted in self-doubt and other beliefs that limit their level of performance. In THE POWER TO WIN (The Lyons Press, December 2004), Laura Boynton King uses self-hypnosis, Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), and Time Line Therapy®, to teach the reader/rider how to stop dwelling on past failures and other negative feelings and images through stress-reduction techniques, positive imagery, and concentration- focusing skills.
Whether the rider feels held back by physical fear (for example, riding a livelier horse or jumping a higher fence than he or she is accustomed to), negative comments from a trainer or a horse show judge, or show-ring performance anxiety, here is a book designed to help replace a "losing" mentality with the winning edge.
Full of valuable advice and illustrated with examples of how the author has helped well-known equestrians, THE POWER TO WIN is a valuable tool for all competitive or recreational riders-indeed, any athlete-at any level, as well as for instructors and parents.
