  • PSYCHED UP

    Closing the sale. Asking for a raise. Nailing the big presentation. Of the 2,000 hours you work every year, your success or failure is determined in the couple of dozen crucial hours when you need to bring your absolute best. Will you?

    The last few minutes before a major challenge can be terrifying. Ever wished you knew how to make sure you ace the make-or-break test, audition, or interview?

    We often feel the most powerless just before we?re expected to act powerful. As you?ll learn in this life-changing book, practice might make perfect, but perfection is useless if you can?t summon it when it counts. Pulling off a great speech or the pivotal at bat also requires the right kind of mental preparation.
