Description by World Renowned Coach April Hartsook
The only thing the truly sets individuals apart from one another is their ability to conquer their minds. Distinguishing fear based, from fact based actions and responses, allows us to overcome obstacles and achieve desired outcomes. Our thoughts are masterpieces of mental indulgence, always demanding us to harness their power again and again. Inviting us to dig deeper, expand broader, and evoke the necessary change from within, for profound personal growth.
Often times we see the world as our competitor and our enemy. In reality it is the image of the world that we fight, and it is that image that paralyzes us. How we see it, and how we believe it sees us. The goal in life is not simply to exist; it is and should always be, to overcome: self, adversity, ego and fear. My role as a change agent on this planet is to teach individuals that change begins with a thought that is then followed by an action that is different from the way they have always done. In order to cease their repetitive nature and comfort of dysfunction their thinking must be altered. Only then can they embrace the possibility of a once un-achievable result.
Kevin and I are very similar in the thought/action principle. Hence the reason I believe he asked me to write this foreword. After all, great minds think alike!
The Mind Game of Competition is an action required book designed to educate, teach and invoke action to
achieve greatness. Kevin Seaman has written a step-by- step guide that enlightens your journey by providing essential lessons and tools necessary to become a true champion in your life. Drawing on the synergies of the physical, mental and emotional aspects of competition, Kevin provides solution driven principles that will transform your thought processes and allow unbelievable results. I have spent many years writing and teaching similar ideals and principles, and I found myself motivated and inspired as I witnessed his alternative applications to those very same ideals.
This book helps provide you with an understanding of who you are at this moment, coupled with an uncovering of who you want to be moving forward. Every lesson is designed to help you utilize the tools around you in order to become all that you were meant to be. In the ever-changing realm of competition, Master Coach Kevin Seaman provides the insight and initiative required to carry out all of your ambitious goals, no matter how unattainable you once thought they were.
This Mind Game of Competition invites you to carve a distinctive path of unbelievable success for yourself. Competition is everywhere in all things, but application of the lessons found in this book can and will allow you to overcome anything. Go deep within your mind and learn how and why you think the way you do. Apply new techniques to propel and energize you forward, all the while reminding you that navigating this labyrinth we call life requires information, coupled with action.
I have always proclaimed if you Want Different Do DifferentTM. I invite you to delve into this book deeply, process its contents again and again, and then apply them to your life on a daily basis. Stop fighting the world and start conquering yourself!
