Summary
Understanding the sports psychology concepts of motivation, anxiety, focus, and arousal is essential for achieving high levels of performance in sport. This video examines the effects of repetitive training on motivation and the internal and external factors that can affect it. Sports psychologists and coaches discuss the effects of anxiety and the pressures, both intrinsic and extrinsic, that athletes often feel. Athletes and their coaches also discuss physical and social stress, how to manage it, and how to turn it to the athlete's advantage. This is a helpful visual learning tool for athletes and coaches who are searching for the "zone of optimal functioning" (the phrase from which "in the zone" is derived) and who want to improve performance through an understanding of positive and negative motivators.

Summary
"A roadmap for high achievers to harness restlessness, roadblocks, and distractions into a productive drive towards personal and professional fulfillment. Many people reach success by deliberately being their own worst critic and obsessively double-checking their work; or by pushing their feelings aside. This strategy is seductive because it does work, at least up to a certain point. The problems arise once you advance beyond school and early career stages. The higher you climb, the more complex projects and issues in your life become. Meanwhile, you may have become so good at putting your emotions aside in certain situations that it's hard to reconnect with them. This is when the old tools no longer suffice. The "somewhat OCD" tendencies we pride ourselves on, or rather, the "Nervous Energy" we possess, can become mismanaged, and lead us down a rabbit hole of excessive self-criticism, anxiety, and pessimism. In Nervous Energy, Dr. Chloe Carmichael outlines nine tools with step-by-step instructions that can help you harness your Nervous Energy in order to live a more productive and fulfilling life. If managed correctly, the nervous energy that some people label as anxiety can actually be a source of stimulation, productivity, and fulfillment-and Dr. Chloe Carmichael has tried and tested methods for making this happen. If you've ever felt a sense of excess energy that you didn't quite know how to direct, or felt that your creativity and motivation was being drained by constant analysis paralysis, Nervous Energy is for you"-- Provided by publisher.

Summary
"Mike Hayes has lived a lifetime of once-in-a-lifetime experiences. He has been held at gunpoint and threatened with execution. He's jumped out of a building rigged to explode, helped amputate a teammate's leg, and made countless split-second life-and-death decisions. He's written countless emails to his family, telling them how much he loves them, just in case those were the last words of his they'd ever read. Outside of the SEALs, he's run meetings in the White House Situation Room, negotiated international arms treaties, and developed high-impact corporate strategies. Over his many years of leadership, he has always strived to be better, to contribute more, and to put others first. That's what makes him an effective leader, and it's the quality that he's identified in all of the great leaders he's encountered. That continual striving to lift those around him has filled Mike's life with meaning and purpose, has made him secure in the knowledge that he brings his best to everything he does, and has made him someone others can rely on." -- Amazon.com.
