Part I. WINNING PROGRAMS

A metaphor I frequently use is that the mind is like a remarkable TV set or a super biocomputer with the capability of running a diversity of programs.

If what you are tuned into, what you are thinking, doesn't empower you or give you an edge, then change the channel. Tune into positive, empowering programs.

You're the boss. It's your biocomputer.

You are in control.

Performing under pressure is learning how to run positive programs on our biocomputers. Section One (Chapters 2 and 3) is about creating and running positive programs. It discusses thoughts and images about ourselves as individuals and performers that enhance performance and make us less vulnerable to the limiting effects of pressure.
