Winning Spirit Skating Ebookby Tom Mitchell Ph.D.
Finding Greatness Within: Ice Skating is written specifically for ice skaters wanting to gain a competitive edge and a deeper understanding of themselves.
You can read this book straight through or randomly choose any chapter you’d like. Each chapter stands alone and contains a message, a reminder, an illustration, and a suggested activity. Several chapters have similar themes, but require you to look at them in different ways.
You’ll notice that many times in this book you’ll be asked to write down your experiences. There are Power Notes pages at the back of this book. To make this even easier for you, I’ve created a Power Journal to enhance each chapter. I strongly believe that your athletic journey is worth recording.
Work passionately with the following information. Focus on each chapter and commit to personal improvement. At the same time, be patient with yourself and take the time to let the messages sink in.
Strive for success on the ice and, most importantly, strive to find greatness within.
