"Everyone can get better! Anyone can get better if they will just believe that they can do something today that will allow them to become better tomorrow! It is our goal and intention to EDUCATE - EQUIP - and EMPOWER you to engage yourself in becoming the athlete, the performer, and the person that you want and dream to become!"

The Athlete's Playbook delivers on the promise of its authors to provide big ideas, important understandings, strengths, strategies and skills that will help anyone become mentally tough. The Athlete's Playbook reinforces that you don't have to be the smartest, fastest, or strongest person to perform at an incredible level - you just have to BELIEVE!

Each chapter of this booklet highlights a different tier of the innovative McGuire-Selking-Ivey Model of Mental Toughness first revealed in the best-selling video of the same name (Building a Culture of Mental Toughness: The Pyramid Model).

The Pyramid Model is made up of these non-negotiable building blocks:

  • Motivation
  • Preparation
  • Focus
  • Emotional Stability
  • Accountability
  • Believe

When the components of each tier are embraced and applied, the opportunity for peak performance is unleashed! As you progress through the pages of The Athlete's Playbook, relevant questions relating to each topic are included that will help the reader advance in their mental toughness mastery.

The Athlete's Playbook also includes personal logs to track your action plan and evaluate your results. As an added design function bonus, this booklet is comb-bound.

Whether you're seeking to dominate in athletic competition, excel in the performing arts, reach the top of your career path or any other area of life that requires a mental edge, McGuire, Loeb, Selking and Ivey have collaborated to develop a true roadmap to success in this book. Learn how to BELIEVE and become the best version of yourself, starting today!
