Dear Curler,I guarantee that if you do the four simple things I tell you to do in the next 4 weeks, you will make a quantum leap in your performance on the curling rink.

Skeptical? Maybe so. But what if what I’m about to tell you is true?

You are invited to join a NEW four-week, private, online mental toughness home study program revealing how you can perform your best under pressure. It’s called Mental Toughness Training for Curling, and thanks to the magic of the internet, you can access my step-by-step strategies for maximum curling achievement right away!

Lisa’s on-line mental toughness programme has allowed our athletes, on an individual basis, to gain the mental toughness skills so necessary in today’s world of high performance curling. It’s a winner!Bill Tschirhart, Provincial Coach, Curl BC
Former National Development Coach for the Canadian Curling Association
Former Director, National Training Center for Curling
You can have everything–all the skill it takes–but you will never achieve your goals if you don’t have mental toughness…and Lisa’s teaching of it is a must for anyone interested in excelling at a high level. The way Lisa teaches mental toughness allows you to understand it and apply it practically in a short period of time.Ron Meyers, Former Director, National Curling Development Centre

You Will Learn:

Week #1
How to Achieve Maximum Confidence

Being mentally tough is about one thing: how to handle fear and performance anxiety in your most important games.

You’ll get step-by-step instructions by me on how to create positive emotions and master negative emotions using the latest cutting edge research.

You’ll check and re-fine your existing strategies for dealing with frustrating emotions. If you don’t have any strategies, this course will help you create some.

You’ll also start to look at what’s working and what’s not working for you to create and keep maximum confidence in big games right away.

You will discover the following:

  • Mark Tewksbury’s mental secret for capturing an Olympic gold medal in swimming (it will surprise you!)
  • What your competitors are doing to put pressure on themselves—and how you can avoid this trap
  • How great curlers create an internal environment for themselves in which they do not feel pressure
  • The 10 strategies to gain confidence that never work—yet athletes always try
  • Four killer strategies to reduce your performance anxiety in curling
  • The truth about negative emotions in competition and how you can use these emotions to your advantage
  • Why trying to get rid of fear causes you to choke (and what to do instead)
  • Why criticizing yourself destroys your confidence
Mental toughness training provides a distinct advantage over those who don’t do it. Working with Lisa enhanced my ability to focus on the right things so I had consistent peak performance. With our team, she taught us an effective way of assessing how, when and why we were performing well so we could figure out exactly what we needed to do to be successful. We were able to totally prepare for big competitions by planning and problem-solving. Instead of worrying “What if we fail?” we realized, “We’ll do well if we do this,” which gave us an emotional security blanket. Before doing mental toughness training with Lisa, I thought so many things were out of my control…and now I know they are in my control. I just have so much more inner peace of mind.Joanne Siptka, Finalist, Olympic Women’s Curling Trials
The on-line mental toughness lessons were amazing. I have learned a lot about myself and how to deal with certain situations in a different manner. I’ve learned that being upset with yourself is a natural reaction and there are effective ways to deal with that. I can’t think of a single thing to change in this course. Thank you, Lisa.Jennifer Vejprava, Alberta Junior Champion

Week #2
How to Deal with Distractions and Adversity
If you’ve been curling for any length of time, you’ve had bad things happen to you: a poor start, surprising ice, a difficult opponent, or lack of team unity.

Most curlers are not in control of their performance. If circumstances are good, they perform well; but when things don’t go their way, they tend to perform poorly. The very best curlers know exactly how to re-focus when bad things happen to them in competition.

This course will show you exactly how to identify your stressors and how to overcome them so you can bring your “A” game no matter what.

You will discover the following:

  • Why you criticize yourself while competing—and how to do this constructively rather than destructively
  • Which stressors or “distractions” bother you the most
  • Four breakthrough methods for handling adversity when you encounter it in competition
  • A simple, yet surprisingly effective method for staying resilient in the face of distractions
  • How to channel frustration and disappointment and turn them into a peak performance

Week #3
How to Gain the Mental Edge


How to Handle Curlers Who Treat You Poorly or Underrate You

All curlers know that there’s nothing like an excellent start to put them in a confident, relaxed frame of mind. A great start takes pressure off you and allows you to have fun while competing.
In this training, you will develop a customized, dynamite pre-competition routine that will get you psyched right from the very start of your event.

No matter how mentally tough you are, your environment affects you. You need to feel that you have the support of your coaches, teammates, and family in order to pull off consistently great performances.

This course will give you specific strategies for gaining the trust of the people around you – and for handling any problems they might throw your way.

You will learn the following:

  • How to “psyche up” the day of the game so you are relaxed, confident, and totally prepared to win
  • What your “second reaction” is and how it can suck you of confidence and energy
  • What to do if you lose your confidence the day of the game
  • A professional musician’s method for laughing at negative emotions (that he learned playing the Grammy awards!)
  • How to get the support of your coach, parents, and even competitors
  • Exactly what to say and do if a coach or parent is being cold to you when you need their support
  • What you should be paying attention to during your most important competitions to win
This whole concept of me being able to manage feelings of low confidence is very timely for me. It’s nice to be reminded that doubt and fear are normal. It has taken much pressure off of me.Susan O’Connor, Canadian Mixed Curling Champion
Mental toughness training was a great course! I really like the way Lisa explained all the concepts–they are easy to read and understand.I loved the examples from other athletes. Many were the same as mine, and I liked knowing my answers weren’t weird. This course has helped me gain a lot of confidence in every day life and in my sport. I wouldn’t change anything about this course.


Marliese Miller, Junior World Curling Champion and Olympic Trials Competitor

Week #4
How to Handle Failure So You Come Back More Confident Than Ever

I’ve been in private practice with athletes for over 16 years, and their pattern is always the same: they call me about 3 weeks before their provincial, national, world, or Olympic championship to prepare for it.

This is a good idea, but what’s equally important is doing mental toughness training after a major failure.

All good athletes experience failures; however, it’s how you emotionally handle these losses that will determine whether or not you will leave them in the past…or re-create failure for yourself over and over again.

You will learn:

  • Michael Jordan’s secret to creating unstoppable self-confidence
  • Why most athletes refuse to visualize success in their minds
  • A unique way to program yourself for immediate success
  • Why the very best athletes lose confidence and how to avoid this syndrome
  • How to respond to failure so you are more motivated than ever

Here’s exactly how the online Home Study program will work:

Within minutes, you will receive an e-mail from me containing your instructions for the training. The next day, you will receive your first mental toughness lesson. It will give you specific mental  strategies you can apply immediately, including mental toughness assignments for the week. Seven days after receiving your first lesson, you will automatically receive your second one. This format continues until you have completed all four lessons. To gain full benefit, you’ll want to devote two hours to this course every week for 4 weeks.

How much will this cost? If you attended one of my seminars, the training would cost you at least $500 and there would be limited time for your questions. If you came to me for in-person coaching, the fee for 4 weeks would be $2000 and up, because my hourly fee is $300.

But for this exclusive, limited, Home Study online program, the tuition fee is only $97 plus GST.

Imagine waking up every morning knowing exactly how approach your most pressure-filled bonspiels… knowing how to re-create your best performances… knowing how to handle disappointment so you get more mentally tough each season… knowing you are reaching your potential as a curler.

You probably spend 10 times this much each season on equipment, coaching, and travel expenses. Isn’t it time to invest in your mental game too? Aren’t your curling-related goals and dreams worth it?

100% Money Back Guarantee

Is the course guaranteed? Absolutely. Sign up now. If you’re not happy with the course, tell me and you can have ALL your money back – no hassles.

The only request I have is that you complete the entire course, including all the assignments, before deciding.

Think about this guarantee for a minute: it’s exactly the same as taking home a new car, test driving it for 2 weeks, then returning the car and have the dealer say to you, “OK, here is all your money back… and, by the way, you get to keep the car too.” It’s the same thing, because I can’t take back from you what you will learn from me in 4 weeks.

To Your Success,

Author, Mental Toughness Training for Curling

PS: Join me in this course, and I will teach you EXACTLY how to apply mental toughness training to curling for maximum results.

What would your life be like if you had the ability to perform at the upper limit of your talent—consistently? This is the mental toughness ability that separates curlers who reach their goals from curlers who do not.

A year ago, my curling team started working with Lisa with the goal of representing Canada at the Olympics in 2002. In our first year together, we were successful in finishing 2nd on the World Curling Tour, and qualifying for all eight Olympic Trial events in the upcoming year. With a combination of team building strategies, self-esteem development, planning, and the use of techniques to remove our performance anxieties, the team could not be more prepared. Lisa has a natural leadership ability that allows her to get to the real issue and find a solution for it. I have never worked with a more intelligent, talented, inspirational, and committed professional whom you gain an immediate respect and trust for. With Lisa, problems are just solutions waiting to happen.Heather Fowlie, Olympic Trial Competitor
I thoroughly enjoyed this course. The part that I appreciate the most is the feedback on my own specific assignments. I found that to be so valuable. I also really liked lesson #2 that offered a whole array of different techniques for getting “back on track”. The more tools I have in my arsenal, the better!Cori Bartel, Lead, Team Bernard
The course has been very insightful for me as a competitor and as a person (in relationships either with my spouse or fellow teammates or competitors). Forcing me to become aware of my emotions and how to deal with them in a real and positive way has been the most rewarding.Gord Dewar, Canadian Men’s Curling Tour
Genuine confidence is an absolute necessity if you want to reach your potential. I’ve worked with Lisa as a personal mental training coach and have accessed Lisa’s talents in training teams I have coached. Lisa’s work is very effective because she delivers the training at the level the clients need…and it’s the type of training that you take with you and use on a daily basis towards success.Shannon Miller, Coach, Canadian Olympic Women’s Hockey Team
Have you ever heard the adage, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”? Well, I was broke and I knew it. I knew in my heart I had what it took physically to do my job on the pitching mound. Emotionally and mentally, I was taking myself out of any chance of peak performance. Just as I knew I needed a jump start to my mental game, I knew Lisa was the person who could help me identify the root of my downward spiral. The mental game is not a ‘sometime’ thing. It must be on an all the time thing if you are to find success. Lisa helped me “cut to the chase” and identify those things that were holding me back from attaining the mental edge I needed. Together we created a mental plan of attack that allowed me to stay empowered regardless of the circumstances.Lori Sippel, Captain, Olympic Women’s Softball team
 Mental toughness training gives you confidence. It’s helped me play well under pressure and cope with injuries. I think it’s essential if you want to perform to your potential. You owe it to yourself to do mental toughness training, and Lisa Brown’s work is so practical because she teaches you skills you can use right away. Stacy Wilson, Captain, Canadian Olympic Women’s Hockey Team
Lisa Brown has worked closely with me and my teams and I can honestly say that the work she does Is very different from other performance consultants. That’s because Lisa has the athletes look Inside themselves rather than outside themselves to solve their performance problems. She has them confront their Inner barriers and access their self-confidence. In my experience, most performance enhancement work Is really a compilation of nice words on a piece of paper from an Intellectual perspective. I’m a better coach today because I know how to look beyond the x’s and o’s of the game and can relate to my athletes better. Shawnee Harlee, Head Coach, University of Calgary Women’s Basketball Team
Working on my mental toughness with Lisa, I discovered some underlying thinking patterns that were keeping me from getting the results I deserved in competition. With Lisa, I got in touch with my desire, my motivation to win, and ‘the dream’. I was able to focus intensely in training and realized how much I love my sport. Lisa really listened to me…because of her competitive background, she really understood what I was going through.Brooke Harris, Canadian Badminton Doubles Champion
Doing mental toughness training with Lisa has made THE difference in my athletic career–it’s the reason I’m still a successful, competing athlete today. Mental toughness training completely changed my ability to perform AND my confidence level after a year long debilitating injury. Lisa could relate to my feelings and gave me practical ways to deal with my challenges.Kirsten Swan, University of Calgary Women’s Basketball Team
Lisa has helped me develop into a better all around player physically and mentally. I am able to apply my training focus to my mental approach for success. Working with her puts everything into perspective for me. She is very good at what she does, I highly recommend her program.Christine Parris-Washington, Canadian Olympic Women’s Softball Team
I’m crazy at fifty – I’m loving mental toughness training. I feel like a kid again at golf. Also I’m relaxing more and learning more about myself and my emotions. I feel that what I enjoy most is the inner confidence that I get from your techniques which allow me to enjoy life to the fullest when golfing. It makes me appreciate who I am and how great life can be.Rick Grafton, Golf
Lisa, I have a Monkey in my head…you know what mean, I’m sure. So, when in your ebook you tell me I should trust my mind, my Ego is full of doubt. I overruled my Ego, let the Monkey do the deed…and it worked like a treat! Actually, I visualized the shots, then let the Monkey loose. That was yesterday. But today I was so full of confidence thanks to you that I took the short putter out for the first time in 50 years and didn’t twitch a single putt! I rest your case M’Lady.John Blades, Golf
…This season is a breakthrough for me – I read your book and until I did, I never thought that it was possible for me to get over my negative feelings. For the first time since I was a teenager, I’m enjoying golf again and achieving better scores more consistently than I did even at my peak as a junior player. Thank you for giving me the tools to feel good about how I play this truly excellent sport…Jackie Richards, Golf
“It’s a day and night success story. I bought your book, Breakthrough Golf. It was interesting and I skimmed through it pretty quickly, then read the putting tips. I had to hurry because the following day our Club Championships were being held…a two day pressure packed affair guaranteed. I tried just ONE tip from the book on the weekend. My score was 81 — my lowest score of the year!I had the first day lead. I was in a zone — relaxed — having FUN! Sunday I stayed right there and shot 82 — to win by two strokes. Hey, a nice trophy and gift certificate. Big thanks to you–the lovely Lisa Brown for flicking the switch.Amazing. My handicap fell to 14.Much thanks and love,

Tom Leparskas, Windsor Ontario

The course was excellent. I learned so many things and look forward to using and improving on the tools you have given us. I have a much better understanding of myself as an athlete as well as my emotions. The lessons went beyond my expectations!Marcus Kennedy
Lisa, I can honestly say that this course has taught me a lot about myself as a player. It has opened my eyes to a lot of things I do when I play, after games, before games. The whole blame and suppression and just mental control are things that I knew I was doing but not to the extent that you helped me to see.Chantal Corbett, Basketball
This course is changing me. It is changing everything about my life. I have learned how human beings work… not just in sport but in life in general. I have taught my family about the things you teach me. They are mesmerized by what I read them. To understand human emotion changes the way I think and look at myself, and others around me. I am growing.Leah Hepner, Figure Skating
…So much time is spent on the technical aspects of golf…perfecting the grip, the stance, the swing. Lisa’s approach is entirely unique—one that uses your best instincts to improve your game. Since buying her book, I find myself naturally applying her techniques with no extra effort—and getting the results I want!…Maureen Mallmes, Golf
The course has been very enlightening and gratifying. It has moved me further along the road to success and will help me for years to come. I have enjoyed the assignments and the feedback provided. I know that the work I have done with you over the past month or so was part of the reason for my success my most recent high performance camp!Keith Uthe, High Performance Basketball Official
Lisa’s course was incredibly helpful. It’s odd because psychology is my favourite subject in school, but my mental game was seriously lacking. My favourite part would be doing the assignments, I find that they ensure that I’m taking in what is being taught and that I’m applying the lesson on the court.Michelle Stiphout, Basketball
Your book on putting changed my game. With your one tip (where you don’t look at the cup all the time but take a mental picture of the cup and focus on the ball instead) works great. I live and play in Victorville California–from the white tee box, the front 9 is 3236 yards. Yesterday on a par 36 I shot 41 with NOT three putts. My golfing partner (Terry) is amazed how much my putting has improved. Today I had 3 straight putts. I just want to say: thank you, thank you, thank you!Jim Manning, Golf
We had become so focused on the fear of failure that we lost our confidence a lot. The mental toughness training we did with Lisa was invaluable because it allowed us to turn our focus on the game itself. More than anything, Lisa’s training works because she uses a practical approach based on real experience…she even helped me become a better coach to my athletes.Brenda Staniforth, Coach, Canadian Olympic Women’s Softball Team
