Ben Crane and Mental Management

Ben Crane, PGA Tour Player

"Mental Management has been one of the driving forces behind improving the pace of my game. They have helped me develop a consistent program that is helping me reach my potential as a player. This isn't sports psychology - we are trying to achieve mental consistency in an inconsistent game."

Ben Crane stopped by the office yesterday for a follow up and gave us this quote. We always look forward to working with Ben - he is a great player and more importantly a wonderful person. Good Luck to Ben next week at the Byron Nelson.

Troy and Lanny Bassham will be attending the Byron and working with some players there.

Congrats to Joe Maddox!

I (Heather Sumlin) had the pleasure of training a few high school seniors who have big goals in acting and musical theater. The audition process can be a stressful situation. Thousands of kids audition and very few are accepted into the top schools. Acting Coach Mary Anna Dennard is a fan of Mental Management and recommends her students to me for training. I did some One on One coaching as well as a large group seminar for students and parents to attend which was a great success. Here is just one example of the success of the program:

"I had an amazing experience this year auditioning for Musical Theatre Schools. Last year I only got into one school and I really didn't like it there, so I decided that I was going to reaudition this year for more schools. Heather and I talked about so many things. As you can imagine I had alot of insecurities built up from the rejection of last year. Heather started me off with the CD "What Every Stage Performer Needs to Know FIRST About the Mental Game" it really opened my mind to what performing was really about. You had to be strong mentally, no matter how much talent you have. If you can't deliver what God gave you, then what's the point? Without Heather I don't think I would have been able to clear my head enough to truly be all I could be this audition season. She really helped me to understand more about God's plans for my life and taught me to put my faith in him always. She led me to find the confidence that I needed to believe in myself again. She was always encouraging and just has the best outlook on life. I once told her that just riding in the car with her made the world seem a little bit brighter! I am happy to report that I have been accepted into a few top programs, but most recently I was accepted into Carnegie Mellon for Musical Theatre. They accepted 7 guys for Musical Theatre this year out of thousands of people! I don't know if I could have been on of the 7 if Heather hadn't have shown me the way! God bless! I love you Heather!!!!"
Joseph Maddox

Thank you so much Joe for sending over this testimonial! He is a wonderful young man and is headed to one of the best schools in the country to pursue his passion!

Who is Lanny Bassham?

Author of the books "With Winning in Mind" and "Freedom Flight - The Origins of Mental Power", Lanny Bassham has been teaching mental training to athletes, business professionals and performers for three decades.

In 1972, at the Munich Germany Olympic Games, Lanny Bassham failed in his attempt to win the Gold Medal in International Rifle Shooting. He had a mental failure resulting in his taking the Silver instead. Frustrated, Lanny wanted to take a course in controlling the mind under pressure. After looking for such a seminar and not finding satisfaction, Bassham began to interview Olympic Gold Medalists to discover what they were doing differently to win.

What he discovered was truly remarkable. Bassham created a system of mental control he calls Mental Management®. Within the next six years Lanny Bassham dominated his sport, winning 22 world individual and team titles, setting 4 world records and winning the coveted Olympic Gold Medal in Montreal in 1976.

For the past 30 years, Lanny has been teaching Mental Management® to Olympians, business owners, Fortune 500 Corporations and the elite of sport and business community. Lanny Bassham is recognized as a teacher of the world's best in the area of mental preparation for sport and business.

Understanding Pressure - by Lanny Bassham

“How can I avoid the pressure that I feel when competing?” This question or something like it comes up a lot from competitors. In fact, I might have asked that same question early in my career. We are conditioned by the commonly held idea that pressure is a bad thing. If it’s bad then we need to avoid it.

That idea presented a problem for me because every time I competed in a big competition I felt pressure. I didn’t feel pressure in training very often. Interestingly enough, it did not seem to cause my scores to go down but it presented me with concern and caused increased anxiety when it occurred. In my more than forty years as both a competitor and a coach I have known only a few athletes that say that they do not feel something different in competition. For many, the effects of pressure are so destructive that they cause poor focus at critical times. However, many elite performers find that the pressure of competition is useful, even essential, to the attainment of their best performances.

My answer to the question of avoiding pressure today normally sounds something like this. “You should not want or need to avoid pressure. Pressure, or the stress of competition as some call it, is not something you need to avoid. It is something you need to use.”

First we must realize to control something we must understand it. The negative effects of pressure seem to be more prevalent in performers that have trouble winning. You can hear them talking about butterflies, being tight and the infamous choke. The good side of pressure just doesn’t make it as topic of conversation in a negatively charged world, but it should. Pressure, simply put, is neither positive nor negative. Pressure is like air. Too much and you have a hurricane. Too little and you suffocate. But in the correct amount it is the breath of life.
