Publisher Description

Performed by Trevor Moawad with a foreword written and read by Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson

From a top mental conditioning coach—""the world’s best brain trainer” (Sports Illustrated)—who has transformed the lives and careers of elite athletes, business leaders, and military personnel, battle-tested strategies that will give you tools to manage and overcome negativity and achieve any goal.

He knows how to win.

More, he knows the many ways-subtle, brutal, often self-inflicted-we lose.

As the most trusted mental coach in the world of sports, Trevor Moawad has worked with many of the most dominant athletes and the savviest coaches. From Nick Saban and Kirby Smart to Russell Wilson, they all look to Moawad for help finding or keeping or regaining their competitive edge. (As do countless business leaders and members of special forces.)

Now, at last, Moawad shares his unique philosophy with the general public. He lays out lessons he's derived from his greatest career successes as well as personal setbacks, the game-changing wisdom he's earned as the go-to whisperer for elite performers on fields of play and among men and women headed to the battlefield.

Moawad's motivational approach is elegant but refreshingly simple: He replaces hardwired negativity, the kind of defeatist mindset that's nearly everybody's default, with what he calls ""neutral thinking."" His own special innovation, it's a nonjudgmental, nonreactive way of coolly assessing problems and analyzing crises, a mode of attack that offers luminous clarity and supreme calm in the critical moments before taking decisive action.

Not only can neutral thinking raise your performance level-it can transform your overall life. And it all starts, Moawad says, with letting go. Past failures, past losses-let them go. ""The past isn't predictive. If you can absorb and embrace that belief, everything changes. You'll instantly feel more calm. And the athlete-or employee or parent or spouse-who's more calm is also more aware, and more times than not ... will win.""

Love it!

I’ve been following Nick Saban’s statements in press conferences and YouTube speeches for many years. What he preaches is in alignment with Trevor’s book and research. You can’t go wrong…I’ve listened to it now twice in 1 week. May Trevor rest in peace.

Mostly biographical not enough technique

Probably great for athletes. I’m not into sports and I wish I had known this was a book about sports and not a self help book. The jargon just didn’t resonate with me, no offense to the author. The examples provided don’t expand on the methods but more so serve as illustrations of overcoming defeat by winning and write more like a biography. I was Hoping to get some real life situations and illustrations of what it means to think neutrally to overcome such scenarios.
