From Dr. John F. Murray (December, 2009)
is a great source of inspiration and I love helping people improve,
whether in giving a speech or conducting a workshop, in a clinical situation calling for psychotherapy, in using stress
management techniques, or in high performance work where
the goal is to compete better and win more in business or sports. As
far as sports, I was lucky to grow up in South Florida in the early
70s, and my passion intensified listening to Don Shula’s wisdom as
legendary coach of the Miami Dolphins. My dream at age 10 was to bat
4th for the Yankees and quarterback the Miami Dolphins to a Super Bowl
win. Dreams have become reality as I’ve coached and played tennis
worldwide, worked with many pro athletes and teams as a sports
performance psychologist, helped NFL quarterbacks overcome slumps,
coached tennis at major tournaments like the Australian Open, trained
athletes at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, worked at UFC 100 in Las Vegas with mma fighters, and developed a unique
system for including mental performance in the scoring of a football
game – the Mental Performance Index or MPI – that has almost perfectly
estimated the relative performance of teams in the past 6 Super Bowls.
I’m absolutely convinced that solid mental training is a necessary and
huge key to success, and an often overlooked advantage. If you just
want to cope better with life, a family situation or a relationship,
psychology can help too, and the performance psychology focus is an
extremely positive approach and quest for more success that many enjoy.
overwhelming goal is to help my clients become the best they can become
in whatever they are doing. Many are still not aware of the
huge benefits available to training the mind properly. As such, one of
my passions is to spread the exciting truth that taking care of
thoughts, feelings, actions and sensations professionally is the key to
so much more success as well as a solid solution to many of the
problems that exist in sports and other competitive areas. Take a free mental
test and I will personally evaluate it for you. Sign up for a free
newsletter and you will hear from me at least monthly with other
periodic updates. Call or email now so that we can start making you the best you can become! This is for both teams and individuals, in business and sports, and in anything that demands you be your best. firstname.lastname@example.org
