We're honored to have Dr. Jason Selk as a special guest contributor to the CST Blog!
Dr. Selk is considered to be one of the premier performance coaches in the United States. He helps numerous well-known professional and Olympic athletes as well as Fortune 500 and Fortune 100 executives and organizations develop the mental toughness necessary for high-level success. He's also the author of three books on performance.
While serving as the Director of Mental Training for the St Louis Cardinals, Dr. Jason Selk helped the team win their first World Series in over 20 years, and in 2011 he assisted the Cardinals in the historic feat of winning their second World Championship in a six year period. Dr. Selk is a regular contributor to Forbes, INC, Success, Shape, and Self Magazine; ABC, CBS, ESPN, and NBC radio and television; and has been featured in USA Today, CNBC, and Men’s Health. Dr. Selk’s second book, Executive Toughness, is a best-selling business book.
His first book, 10-Minute Toughness , is on pace to be one of the best-selling sport psychology books of all time and was instrumental in inspiring Pat to further refine CST's performance-based training methodology. The book is the first of its kind in that it teaches individuals exactly what to do to be mentally prepared for competition and sports, and it does so in a very user-friendly manner (PS - You can download 3 free worksheets here that accompany the book).
Dr. Selk will be bringing us two new articles over the next several weeks to give us some tips on how to increase performance:
- The "Perfectionist Mentality" is FAR From Perfect!
- Normal Sucks: 5 Ways to Overcome Your DNA and Win
Pat has recommended the 10-Minute Toughness book several times on various social media feeds so if you haven't read it yet, grab a copy!
Welcome Dr. Selk!
