Stress attacks every aspect of our well-being. Gallwey explains how negative self-talk undermines us, making us believe that pressure is inevitable and that other people's expectations are paramountwhich leaves us feeling helpless and unhappy. But as Gallwey shows, we have the means to build a shield against stress with our abilities to take childlike pleasure in learning new skills, to properly and healthily rest and relax, and to trust in our own good judgment. With his trademark mix of case histories and interactive worksheets, Gallwey helps us to tap into these inner strengths, giving us these invaluable tools: the STOP technique: Learn how to Step back, Think, Organize, and Proceed with a more conscious choice process, even in the most chaotic circumstances. the Attitude tool: If you're feeling resentment, try gratitude. the Magic Pen: Develop the ability to open up your intuition and wisdom. the Transpose exercise: Imagine what the other person thinks, feels, wantsand develop empathy, kindness, and better relationship skills. the PLE triangle: Use your goals for Performance, Learning, and Experience to redefine success and enhance enjoyment. Now you don't have to be a champion athleteor an athlete at allto keep your life in perspective and your performance at its peak. A one-of-a kind guide,The Inner Game of Stressallows anyone to get in the game and win.
