real estate training: Put Your Game Face On! - 02/12/10 09:34 AM
It's time for the Olympics in Vancouver.  For the past two decades, I've been fascinated by the high level of performance that athletes exhibit under the greatest stress imaginable.  Those that conquer it are called "mentally tough."  Those that don't ... are herein known as "chokers."
Over a decade ago, I had the opportunity to be the Sr. Vice President of LGE Performance Systems (now the Human Performance Institute) in Orlando, Florida, where athletes like Pete Sampras, Monica Seles, Jim Harbaugh, Ernie Els and Olympic speedskater Dan Jansen went to train for mental toughness.
