The world’s best athletes know how to find that higher level of focus and effort every time they hit the field. Part of the reason for this is that at a young age, they were inspired and learned a strategy or motivation technique that allowed them to relax during the big game, but at the same time give a maximum effort. Learning relaxation and motivation strategies don’t always come from former athletes or coaches.
Someone who personifies the ability to give a great performance when it counts most is “The Boss,” Bruce Springsteen. If you haven’t been to one of his concerts (or for some of you, who don’t know who he is), he still performs three-hour sets and brings it like he did when he first hit the music scene some 40 years ago.
In the video above, find out what motivates Bruce Springsteen to bring his absolute best every time he hits the stage. You will learn the balancing act that Bruce deals with in order to put his shows in perspective. As always, Dr. Rob Gilbert and I will break it all down for you, so you can apply it to your game and take your performance to the next level!
