Genuine confidence is an absolute necessity if you want to reach your potential. I’ve worked with Lisa as a personal mental toughness 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, OLYMPIC COACH, WOMEN’S HOCKEY
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
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, OLYMPIAN, WOMEN’S HOCKEY
Lisa’s mental toughness online program made me a 2 time World Champion. I was ready to conquer every possible distraction in international competition. I played my best, even in the most high pressure moments.
LAURA WARNER, TEAM CANADA, RINGETTE
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 Lisa was the person who could help me identify the root of my downward spiral. 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, OLYMPIAN, WOMEN’S SOFTBALL
After mental toughness, I am now a better player physically and mentally. I am able to apply my focus for success. The program put everything into perspective for me. Christine Parris-Washington

CHARMAINE REID, OLYMPIAN, BADMINTON
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, UNIVERSITY BASKETBALL
Your information on mental toughness saved me a great deal of money. You made it so simple, be your own mental toughness coach! In the past I would wait for other people to tell me how good I was. Now I can create this confidence from the inside. My national show is at the end of the year and I know I will turn pro. Thank you!
JOELLA BERNARD, FINALIST, USA WOMEN’S HEAVY BODYBUILDING
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, NATIONAL DEVELOPMENT COACH FOR THE CANADIAN CURLING ASSOCIATION
Mental toughness gave me the edge that I needed to become an elite curler. I had always been a good player, but weak mentally. I was able to overcome the one major obstacle that stood in my way. The mental toughness that I now have has helped in sport, life and my work. I am now better prepared to deal with people, because I am more confident.
BRAD KUHN, ELITE CURLER & HIGH SCHOOL TEACHER
I am 47 years old. Since I was a kid I liked to play tennis but at that time was expensive for my parents and they couldn`t afford it. Two years ago I had the chance to start having lessons, I thought that for this kind of sport you must start when you are a kid, but I was wrong. Soon I started to play matches and now I am playing in local tournaments.
I have to play to 18 years old kids sometimes, and at 47 this is very tough but I like the challenge. Today against all predictions I won a tough match and I know your book helped me do it. I was most of the time down in the score, but I won anyway 4-6, 7-6, 7-6. For the first time I was able to maintain focus in the important moments in a very long match. Thank you very much!
DANY URRIZA, TENNIS PLAYER TIERRA DEL FUEGO, ARGENTINA
Mental toughness has the athletes confront their Inner barriers and access their self-confidence. I’m a better coach today because I know how to look beyond the x’s and o’s of the game. I relate to my athletes better.
SHAWNEE HARLE, HEAD COACH UNIVERSITY OF CALGARY BASKETBALL
At my World Triathlon Championship, your words were in my head throughout the event. I kept thinking about rhythm throughout the day. When we spoke, I told you my goal was to be top 10. I finished 9th. I finished with a PR. My previous fastest time in a race of this distance was 5:47. I was hoping to go 5:45. I finished in 5:39.
I am thrilled. Another exciting part is that my husband and I finished the race together. This has never happened before. Very cool that it happened in the World Championship. You really helped!
GAIL LOHMAN, TRIATHLETE
Lisa, you won’t believe the impact “The Courage to Win®” had on my Junior Varsity Boys High School Volleyball team (gr10-11).
It seemed whenever the team was in a playoff, they just could not win. For 2 full months we worked at skills and techniques to get over that hump of not being able to win the big games.
Nothing seemed to work. Here in front of me was an offer to purchase an Ebook, the exercises take only 7 days. I will be honest, I was very skeptical, but it was local to Calgary and I really did not have anything to lose, except the cost of the book! I purchased the book. In 5 minutes I walked through the visualization with them, breaking down the skill to very simple components having them see themselves performing the skill through their own eyes.
In a matter of 3 weeks the team went from not being able to win when it counts to losing not being an option, and our focus the entire time was never the win, but rather playing OUR style of game. I can’t say enough about how this program has positively impacted my approach to coaching.
COREY COWPER, VOLLEYBALL COACH
Lisa, thank you! My golf game is much more consistent. I am shooting 81-84 almost every time out. I am much more relaxed and able to experience my swing much more clearly. I have also begun to develop greater confidence in my short game. I am so confident I am eager to play with players who can beat me!
ARLENE YOST, GOLFER SAN LUIS OBISPO, CALIFORNIA
Lisa thank you so much for the Courage to Win! My competition was awesome. I won!!!!!! I also did a new personal best. Now my goal is to do it again at Nationals!
I am a lawn bowler of three years and have improved dramatically since purchasing these. I have had many comments on how well I am playing. One of the men at our club told me today that he loves the way I do it. He said every time I go out, I go out to play. How good is that! I won the two bowls singles internal Club tournament, beating the girl who has “always” won it. I am loving it!
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
Thank you very much miss Lisa for The Courage to Win® in Sport. Now I know what I need to do, I was missing a few steps. Thank you again, your answers have made my day!
With the use of Lisa’s guidance, I have learned to manage the emotions causing the stress, and I have been successful in losing 45 lbs. I have never worked with a more intelligent, talented, inspirational, and committed professional whom you gain an immediate respect and trust for. With Lisa Brown, problems are just solutions waiting to happen.
HEATHER RANKIN, FINALIST, OLYMPIC CURLING TRIALS
This past March we made it to the gold medal match knocking off the previous OUA champs in 5 sets. Thanks to your candor, honesty, insight and adviceI was prepared to coach the many different personality styles my players had and be successful. You helped me understand myself this year and what I needed to do. I am way more confident in my coaching ability – thanks so much for everything you did to help me prepare for this year.
CAL WIGSTON, HEAD COACH MEN’S VOLLEYBALL UNIVERSITY OF GUELPH
Lisa, I purchased “the courage to win” about three weeks ago. I read it thoroughly and did all the exercises numerous times. After I had a much better understanding of my anxieties and learned how to focus my energy in a positive way. I just returned from the USA high school Senior National wrestling tournament. Before your material I placed 12th in the state of NJ.I knew I was much better than that. After using your material I just placed 3rd in the country for 130lbs. senior wrestlers. Thank you so much.I will continue to use this focus for life.
BJ YOUNG, MEN’S WRESTLING
I recently ordered The Courage to Win® in Sport ADVANCED Course and quickly absorbed Lesson 1, including the audio. The discussion on why winning is important made a significant impact on me and I shared it with my team. We participated in a bonspiel on the past weekend without having been on the ice this year yet…Our goal was to come home with a winning record having made progress on communication systems …we lost our first game – a close one — but then went on to win 7 straight and take home the Championship Flight prize! After each win we celebrated not so much the win but the satisfaction of knowing the win showed we were “evolving” and “growing” as individuals and as a team. You would have been amazed at how that shift in perception about winning and losing created a positive environment over the entire weekend. Honestly – this one lesson I learned has been worth the cost of the program! Jan Pula

Mental toughness training allowed us to turn our focus on the game itself. It is 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
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.
KIRSTEN SWAN, UNIVERSITY OF CALGARY WOMEN’S BASKETBALL TEAM
Lisa you helped me through a recent Karate competition. I have been above average and even had some moments of triumph and learned something hew from each situation – the new way you are discussing is great! Quite frankly I’ve also take that same mentality as I search for a job right now.
Lisa thank you for giving ME the right focus for a coach – and that is being positive and patient while we work on our skill development even if it means re-teaching something I have already taught them. Sometimes an athlete will lose confidence in themselves, and lose a skill, it is our job as coaches to find ways to help them regain their confidence and belief in what they are able to do. You gave me just the tools I needed to get my athletes to overcome their fears.
TODD SADER, ELITE GYMNASTICS COACH
Lisa I wanted to write and say thank you from my son and myself for The Courage to Win® in Sport and to let you know what a difference it has made in my son’s bowling game.My son, Matt, is a 17 year old High School Junior who has been on his school’s bowling team for 3 years. My son was bowling well at the beginning of the season, was not a varsity starter (5 man varsity team), but an alternate.
We purchased the system at the beginning of the season and he read it over the Thanksgiving break. Within the first week of coming back from the break, he was starting varsity. By the Christmas break he was the number 3 man on the starting varsity squad. He felt the system had helped him to focus and be mentally tough enough to out bowl his competitors and his team mates.
At the beginning of last week he felt he was in a bit of a slump, so on Wednesday night he refreshed himself with it. At Thursday and Friday’s matches, he had high game and high series for his team at both matches.
However, his success didn’t end there.
On Saturday at his home town’s sponsored high school tournament, he bowled a perfect 300 game.
12 solid strikes!
This is only the 6th time in the 24 year history of the tournament that a 300 has been bowled. In the 10th frame, as he bowled the 3 strikes, he had close to 300 people watching him.
A reporter from The Newark Star-Ledger was present and interviewed him. Here is my son’s quote: `I was able to keep my focus, keep my eyes on the target and my hand behind the ball,’ said Barros, who averages 202. `When I was going for my last three strikes, I didn’t realize anyone was here. It was just me and the lane.’
His comment to me after he had calmed down was, ‘thanks for getting me that system, it really helped me to stay focused.’
The system and your email tips have had a huge impact on my son’s bowling career. It really is a great formula!
Sincerely, Keith Barros
I played a practise (1 ½ hr) match with a promising Swiss 14 yr old at our club. He hits the ball hard, wants to become a professional etc etc. I have played him a few times. The last time was a year ago. He beat me then. And, of course, he gets better every year.
I decided to put my pre-match routine in practise, even though it was not a real match. Just to have the experience.
I played inspired, energized from the start.
I also had adopted a “winning” attude. To meet him blow-to-blow on velocity and aggression, come to the net when I could etc etc. Not to wait till he would start to make mistakes or mentally break down.
It was terrific. I played well from the start. But it got to 0-3 15-40. I hang in, kept believing and the tide started to turn. By 4-4 he started to change tactics (as he could not keep up with me at the back of the court!!), throwing balls in the air and so forth. I had the upperhand. I made mistakes too but on the deciding point (a running volley) to get me to 6-6 I played the volley with confidence (visualised before). It was then time. He rather did not want to play the tie break..
I felt great and the champion was fully there. My coach saw a bit, and said, he saw a “different me” on the court. One he always had know was there!
To me it felt Easter Sunday came today!!
