Fuel Your Performance, and Life, with the Clarity of Stillpower

For years, athletes, coaches, parents, and organizations have searched for the secrets to optimum mental performance. However, in spite of a myriad of tools and techniques, success and contentment continue to be as elusive as ever, until now. Garret Kramer’s Stillpower offers a revolutionary explanation for this predicament and provides a basic, yet dynamic, approach for the future. In an accessible style, Kramer reveals the innate principles behind consistent achievement and highlights the misalignment between the experiences of all performers and the strategies of the coaches, psychologists, and experts who are hoping to help them.

Stillpower uses real-life examples to explore such questions as: What is “the zone” and what must we do (or not do) to get there? Why do we need to understand the difference between insight and intellect? Is goal setting really useful? Why doesn’t willpower work? And why do the best mentors focus on a person’s state of mind and not behavior? Virtually all of us—athletes and non-athletes alike—are looking outside of ourselves, trying to unlock the keys to happiness, freedom, and excellence with ease. Stillpower encourages us to look within to finally find the answers.

Synopsis:

When the going gets tough, stillpower—not willpower—is the best response. In this revolutionary yet simple paradigm for performance, you will find the zone from within, achieve excellence with ease, and uncover the clarity of mind to succeed on and off the playing field.

In Stillpower, Garret Kramer reveals the innate principles behind consistent performance and success. In an accessible style, Kramer highlights the misalignment between the experiences of athletes and the strategies of the coaches, psychologists, and performance experts who are trying to help them.

     Using real-life examples, this profound book aims to help not only athletes, but all individuals perform with freedom and ease by looking within themselves for the keys to success. While other books attempt to improve performance with quick, external fixes and short-lived mental strategies, Stillpower offers a permanent solution—instincts, inner wisdom, and insight.

     Stillpower’s message is clear: When we stop trying to will ourselves through our troubles or barriers, the solutions become intuitively available. With Stillpower, excellence is so much closer than you think..
