I am the owner of a dance studio in which my students compete three times a year. Although my students have always been very successful at the state level, it was not until reading With Winning in Mind in correlation with Freedom Flight that I was able to see my students win first at the national level. I was able to use these tools with my cheerleading squad as well. They too placed at the national level. I recommend not only this book, but Lanny's other valuable tools as well!

After reading this book, I was able to take my archery career to the next level. Most times when I read a book, it will end up on my shelf, and never get cracked again, but this book is different. I read it often, and will always have an 'to do' list while reading, so I know what things I need to work on when I get finished.

Thank you so much Lanny!!!

If you are not a competitive shooter, or a competitive person, don't buy the book. However, if you are a competitive person, and especially if you're a comptetive shooter, then order now!! I've been a competitive shooter for 30 years off and on, and this book really opened my eyes. I have learned things that I should hae seen before but didn't. Now I understand some of the reasons why pistol shooters like Robbie Leatham, Brian Enos, and Doug Koenig (all of whom I've shot with) are consistent winners. They utilized at least some of the aspects of the author's book. Gosh, it was right in fornt of me and I didn't see it until now!! I would bet that this book will make any average shooter improve his scores dramatically if you follow just half of the system presented by Bassham. If you do all of what he suggests, you WILL get better scores. Any wannabe champion shooter must have this book on their shelf... it is to the mental aspects of shooting what Yur Yev's classic book is to the physical aspecst of shooting. My only complaint is that Bassham could have gone a little deeper into the mental preparation techniques and shown some illustrations of his schedules,plans, diaries, etc.

With Winning in Mind is a great book! After having read several books on the mental game (I've read archery, golf, tennis....you name it), I found this book to be the most beneficial, especially for application across all sports. It is short and to the point, easy to read and understand, and effective when you put the principles to work.

Even if you're not an athlete, you NEED to read this book. It will help you improve at whatever you wish to be better at. The Mental Management System is proven and it works!

With Winning in Mind is an amazing book that elucidates some of the tools that show what it takes to get the right mindset, what it takes to truly excel in whatever sport or mindset you are trying to become your very best at. Positive thinking and a mental management plan help you stay in focus at all times and remove any self-doubt and nerves you might have during your performances -- where it really does count. With Winning in Mind demonstrates three areas of ability where one can improve to increase their overall performance; these are the conscious, subconscious, and self-image. As well as explaining the use and usefulness of Directive Affirmations and Goals.

With Winning in Mind takes the narrative within Olympic Shooting while beginning to demonstrate how everything comes into place. This book can typically be read in about 1 - 2 days, it's a short and very entertaining read, I would be very hard pressed to find any faults with the book. It is most definitely a required read for anyone who wishes to excel well at whatever it is they may want to do, as the book covers several topics within for using the tools, such as work, weightloss, habits, time management, etc.

The mental management system works, and it works well, it's that simple!

Discovered this book by accident while doing some research on the net regarding bowling. As a new bowler I was seeking a solution to properly releasing the ball. Essentially, my frustration was building and I was looking for a way to solve the problem with my mechanics. In one article someone alluded to Lanny Bassham's book indicating it was helpful in getting over the mental glitches that often develop when a person is struggling in a sport and just can not get past a problem.

The book is practical and simplistic in its approach. It does not overwhelm you with complex formulas or long meditation sessions to address the problem. To use a familiar term, it is an easy read. I was surprised at just how encouraged I was following each chapter. Further, this is not just a "one time" read. There are many simplistic techniques that you will want to revisit and that will appear more pertinent as you continue to move through the sport/activity that you are trying to improve upon. I liked the book so much I purchased one for my Kindle and also bought a hard copy.

Having read various publications in the field of self improvement, i found this book very easy to read and the information easy to put into practise. The book is given more credibility by the fact that the author has indeed walked the walk. I have used these techniques in competition shooting and as a result have achieved 7 out of 9 Personal bests in 1 season in the UK. OUTSTANDING!

Lanny Bassham makes a great presentation of how "the power of positive thinking" can help you actually change your habits and how you think and feel about yourself. While I believe that if you have deep, psychological issues that you should see a professional, if you have some fears or habits to overcome then his mental management system can help you. His perspective comes from the sports world, where top athletes can win or lose based on their mental attitude, but this system can also apply to weight loss, taking exams, stage fright, and many others. If you can conquer what is sabotaging or holding you back in your head, you can change your whole self-image, and thus change your subconscious performance.

Someone I admire recommended this book to me because they could hear some of my negative self image coming out in our conversations. I'm a very positive person but I was not giving myself credit and it's hurting my career so I decided to read Lanny's book. What an amazing way to explain the mental game and the importance it plays in being the best you can be at anything. I have seen a lot of reviews on this book that relate this to sports which makes complete sense. But I needed this mental management system to help me lead better and I discovered it also helped me parent better immediately. Lanny gives you some real tools to put into practice and it has helped me significantly to take the next step in my career.

It is a quick read and I found myself highlighting a lot of things.
He talks a lot about process which is good. Challenge is finding a process that works for you. He is a shooter, so there is more in this book to help people like that - A task with a very finite life. Hitting a golf ball, hitting a pitch, kicking a field goal. I had some challenges converting to other sports like tennis, skiing, squash where the activity has a Longer duration.
