Lanny Bassham; Olympic Gold Medalist and Mental Management System Creator.

Episode 46 is a very interesting chat with Lanny Bassham, the creator of the Mental Management system. His book 'With Winning In Mind' is an excellent book that I read a few years ago and I have found it very helpful with very actionable ideas. A little bit about Lanny from his website:
In 1972, at the Munich Germany Olympic Games, Lanny Bassham failed in his attempt to win the Gold Medal in International Rifle Shooting. He had a mental failure resulting in his taking the Silver instead. Frustrated, Lanny wanted to take a course in controlling the mind under pressure. After looking for such a seminar and not finding satisfaction, Bassham began to interview Olympic Gold Medalists to discover what they were doing differently to win.
What he discovered was truly remarkable. Bassham created a system of mental control he called Mental Management®. Within the next 6 years, Lanny Bassham dominated his sport, winning 22 world individual and team titles, setting 4 world records and winning the coveted Olympic Gold Medal in Montreal in 1976. For the past 34 years, Lanny has been teaching Mental Management® to Olympians, business owners, Fortune 500 Corporations and the elite of sport and business community.
His book defines what you need to think about to achieve mental control and how to do it. To control performance, especially in high-level competition, you need a system to help you in this process. We all say ultra running is 90% mental and the rest is in our head. It's time we all started working more on this aspect of our training. The Mental Management System will help you with this.

Next week's podcast is with Matt Fitzgerald in regards to his book 80/20 Training. I'm sure you'll find it really interesting.
