Mental Strength: Do you think fast?

 

In the 1930′s a Northwestern grad student in the psychology department, E.F. “Al” Wonderlic, invented the test that came to be known as the Wonderlic.

Each year, nearly 3 million job applicants in every line of work take the Wonderlic.

NFL combine athletes must take it as well.

The Wonderlic is a timed IQ test, consisting of 50 questions, ranging form easy, to hard, and must be completed in 12 minutes.

Each question equals one point.

What’s good?

Well, the average scores in some professions look like this:

Being A Good Teammate

World Class Team Building expert and Sport Psychologist Karlene Sugarman revealed some interesting tactics in our most recent Teleseminar.

Karlene related team building strategies of Bill Belichick, the New England Patriots Head Coach, which she says has a lot to do with their massive success.

So I thought I’d pass it along to you.

Karlene said not only do successful teams have a clear mission which goes much deeper than simply saying:

++++++++++++++++++++++++
We Must Win All the Time
++++++++++++++++++++++++

But that each team member must know exactly what role they play as it relates to the team’s mission.

Mental Strength: If It Is To Be …

I turned on the radio yesterday, as I sometimes do in the car when I am out of CD and audio cassette programs.

A political talk show was on.

The guest was a psychologist. He was on because he was diagnosing 100,000 people suffering from ‘post traumatic wrongful-election distress syndrome.’

No Joke.

Now, whether you are part of the blue party, green party, or purple party, it’s unimportant for this purpose, really.

What is important is the attitude that is expressed:

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Helplessness, or that someoneis coming to the rescue.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Mental Strength Tip: Confidence Equals Concentration

I interviewed a world-renowned sport psychologist a few days ago, Dr. Alan Goldberg.

Dr. Goldberg worked with the UConn Huskies basketball team in 1999 when they won the National Championship over Duke.

Needless to say he knows his stuff.

Dr. Goldberg suggested that your confidence is determined by what you are concentrating on.

For example…

Do you see the distractions in the stands?

Does your mind wander from place to place; looking at the guys walking around the stadium or checking out the cute girls courtside?

Or, do you think about the way you double-faulted on that last big point?
