Keith BarrosLisa 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!!
Most athletes are crippling their mental toughness. They are literally killing their sports confidence without realizing it. Here's why: because the sports psychology they are using is incomplete... and if you don't know about the missing pieces, you will not win consistently no matter how hard you try. My name is Lisa Lane Brown and discovering these missing pieces made me a three time World Champion in my sport. I also found out the reason why virtually every athlete, coach, and sport psychologist does not know about them. When you discover the reason, you will shake your head in amazement that you did not think of it first. Simply enter your name and email address and I'm going to teach you the missing pieces you need to get the courage to win.
