9781582703886: Stillpower: Excellence with Ease in Sports and Life

Fuel Your Performance, and Life, with the Clarity of Stillpower


For years, athletes, coaches, parents, and organizations have searched for the secrets to optimum mental performance. However, in spite of a myriad of tools and techniques, success and contentment continue to be as elusive as ever, until now. Garret Kramer’s Stillpower offers a revolutionary explanation for this predicament and provides a basic, yet dynamic, approach for the future. In an accessible style, Kramer reveals the innate principles behind consistent achievement and highlights the misalignment between the experiences of all performers and the strategies of the coaches, psychologists, and experts who are hoping to help them.

Stillpower uses real-life examples to explore such questions as: What is “the zone” and what must we do (or not do) to get there? Why do we need to understand the difference between insight and intellect? Is goal setting really useful? Why doesn’t willpower work? And why do the best mentors focus on a person’s state of mind and not behavior? Virtually all of us—athletes and non-athletes alike—are looking outside of ourselves, trying to unlock the keys to happiness, freedom, and excellence with ease. Stillpower encourages us to look within to finally find the answers.

From the Inside Flap:

Fuel your performance, and life, with the clarity of Stillpower

For years, athletes, coaches, parents, and organizations have search for the secrets to optimum mental performance. Today, however, in spite of a myriad of tools, techniques, and theoretical models, consistent success and contentment are as elusive as ever. We see young athletes pushed so hard that 70 percent quit organized sports by the age of thirteen. Every day a high school, collegiate, or pro athlete makes headlines for his or her errant behavior--not to mention, talented and industrious players repeatedly failing to deliver in ''clutch'' moments.

While many insist that athletics is a great way to learn life lessons and expand life skills, this development is not taking place. Now, in Stillpower, Garret Kramer provides a revolutionary simple explanation and understanding. In a fluent and readable manner, Kramer reveals the innate principles behind consistent performance and success. And he highlights the misalignment between the experiences of athletes and the strategies of the coaches, psychologists, and performance experts who are trying to help them. Stillpower uses real-life examples to explore such questions as: What is ''the zone'' and what must we do (or not do) to get there? Why does an athlete need to understand the difference between insight and intellect? Is goal setting really useful? Why doesn't willpower work? Why do the best mentors focus on a person's state of mind and not behavior? What is the connection between the qualities of compassion, competitiveness, and resiliency, and one's thoughts and level of well-being?

Virtually all of us--athletes and nonathletes alike--are looking outside of ourselves, hoping to un-lock the keys to happiness and success. In Stillpower, Kramer encourages us to look within to finally find the answers.
