Olympic Champion, John Naber comments on Lanny's new book "Freedom Flight"

“Lanny Bassham knows first-hand what it takes to be the best in the world at something. “Freedom Flight” proves that he knows how to teach these secrets as well. Lanny’s interesting and insightful fable is filled with useful strategies to help anyone have a better outlook on life, correctly react to adversity, liberate their thinking and find their God-given calling. Buy, read and share this remarkable book.”

John Naber, Olympic champion, sports broadcaster, lecturer and author (“Awaken the Olympian Within”)

Allen "Butch" Chubb wins GOLD!


I just returned to the US from a trip to Europe and I wanted to share some information with you. I recently won the individual Gold Medal at the 2008 "Silberne Patrone" German Grand Prix in Olympic Trapshooting at Thannhausen, Germany. I started using your system early last year and since then I've won two Grand Prix Gold Medals. I can't speak highly enough about the quality of your product and the methods in which you instruct your pupils. I've been instilled with a new level of confidence that was sporadic in my earlier career, but it's now constant and sustaining. I want to once again thank you for your fine array of products and wish you continued success in all of your efforts to make "Champions". Attached is a photo of the podium presentations for your enjoyment.

Best Regards,

Allen "Butch" Chubb

Another Testimonial from a PGA Golf Instructor on Mental Management

I've research the mental side of golf since the early 1992. Read books, listened to CD's, and many seminars to find out what are the keys to success in this area. Lanny's insight cuts to the chase and combines all the important keys. The Mental Management process is not only very effective but simple to understand. Thank you for sharing your knowledge as a competitor and helping others reach higher levels in all areas of their lives.

Focus on Solutions, Not Problems - article by Heather Sumlin

Focus on Solutions, Not Problems

It is common for people to think about problems and quite tempting to dwell on them, discuss them with your spouse, share them with friends, etc. Many of us spend a lot of time thinking "poor me" or "why me". The question is - does this way of thinking prove to be productive and beneficial or does it prolong the problem's existence?

When I grew up my parents were ultra positive almost to the point of complete annoyance to me as a teenager. My parents ran 4 businesses at one time when I was young which makes me realize I must not be near as productive as an adult as they were. They owned a horse ranch, an International Shooting School, Mental Management Systems and a large networking business. There was no challenge too small for my folks and despite obvious challenges and hurdles they faced, they never gave me an impression that there was stress or worry in the home. They never talked about problems that I remember and I never felt like anything in life was impossible or unreachable because of it.

Another benefit to growing up in the home I did is I met some of the most amazing and successful people when I was young and their influence has helped me greatly. What I noticed the most from my childhood as well as from current teachings around the office is that problems are not the issue, focusing on problems is the issue. When we stop for a moment to think about how we can move the boulders in our path, solutions present themselves. If we dwell on the problem the boulder remains. Focusing on solutions creates a vision of hope and motivation to find an answer. Instead of stating "I can't do this" start asking yourself "How can I make this happen" and allow yourself to believe you will find the open window.

So the challenge this month is to focus on solutions and try your best to not dwell on problems but seek for answers to solving them.
