Muscles Over Mind: A Mental Management System To Master Your Thoughts & Emotions For Competition Success :: Diane Goodspeed

The Muscles Over Mind course is for the dog competitor who wants to excel at every competition! It is packed with detailed exercises – not just theory and concepts – for competitors at any level. Learn how to relax, how to manage your thoughts for confidence and control, how to focus through every competitive situation, and much more. With a touch of theory, a bit of biology, a dab of new age knowledge, and extensive practical experience, this course guides competitors from backyard to podium!

Top athletes in every sport know that mental control is required for an extraordinary performance. Controlling your thoughts and emotions, however, is much easier said than done, particularly at prestigious tournaments and events. Positive, confident thought flow cannot be achieved with wishes or willpower. It is not a matter of wanting to control your thoughts and emotions. Control requires training. You must train your mind – the same way you train your dog to weave or do a running dog walk. There are specific skills and tools needed for mental mastery and, as such, mental control must be part of every competitors training program. Once learned and incorporated into your training and trialing, these skills will change the way you approach competitions and how you compete!

Using her own experience at coaching, years of investigation into sports psychology, and two decades of national and international competitions, Diane has built a system to master the mind! It is fully explained in her book, The Top Dog Advantage, and is a very popular seminar. For the first time, she is offering to teach her system through an online class. By learning her techniques and tools, you will get a huge jump start on your competition at all your competitions in 2017!
