by Troy Bassham | Mental Management® systems © 2012 · 99 pages

Troy Bassham is a 4 time National Champion and World Champion rifle shooter. He's also gold medalist Lanny Bashamm's son. Together they share extraordinary wisdom in their Mental Management® System. This book is fantastic. In the Note, we take a quick look at the 12 elements of elite performance.

Focusing on progress and not results is the fastest way to reach high levels of success.
Troy Bassham

“I grew up having the privilege of knowing some of the best athletes in the world in their respected sports. I didn’t just meet Olympic and World Champions, I knew many of these people and learned a lot from them over the years.

I can tell you that the best of the best in sport, business, education, and life, all have one thing in common. They all think differently from the average person. They follow a different set of guidelines and these guidelines, or elements as I refer to them, are what gives them an advantage over their competition. . . .

In life we are competing in many different areas. How well we handle these areas will provide us with an advantage or give us a disadvantage in terms of being successful. This book breaks down the twelve elements that separate the elite competitor from the average competitor. My goal is to give you an advantage and share with you how I used these elements to reach important goals.”

The Basshams have quickly become two of my favorite teachers.

Troy Bassham (the author of this book) is the son of Lanny Bassham. Lanny is an Olympic gold medalist and one of the most decorated shooters in US history. He’s spent the last 40+ (!) years developing his Mental Management® System and we recently profiled his *incredible* book With Winning in Mind (see those Notes).

Troy is an accomplished athlete in his own right—a 12 time National Champion and World Champion in International Rifle Shooting. He’s been helping his dad optimize their Mental Management® System for 20 years and his book is fantastic. It’s almost like a companion guide to With Winning in Mind.

Both Troy and Lanny are great story-tellers and Troy doesn’t waste a word in this densely-packed, 100-page guide to the 12 elements of elite performance. I’ve marked up nearly every page (make that paragraph!) of this great book.

I’m barely going to scratch the surface of the goodness from the book. I highly recommend it if the idea of elite performance appeals to you. (Seriously. It’s awesome. Get it here. And, connect with Troy + Lanny and learn more about their Mental Management® System here.)

For now, let’s have fun exploring a handful of my favorite Big Ideas. Hope you enjoy!
