He knows how to win.More, he knows the many ways - subtle, brutal, often self-inflicted - we lose.As the most trusted mental coach in the world of sports, Trevor Moawad has worked with many of the most dominant athletes and the savviest coaches. From Nick Saban and Kirby Smart to Russell Wilson, they all look to Moawad for help finding or keeping or regaining their competitive edge. (As do countless business leaders and members of special forces.)Now, at last, Moawad shares his unique philosophy with the general public. He lays out lessons he's derived from his greatest career successes as well as personal setbacks, the game-changing wisdom he's earned as the go-to whisperer for elite performers on fields of play and among men and women headed to the battlefield.Moawad's motivational approach is elegant but refreshingly simple: He replaces hardwired negativity, the kind of defeatist mindset that's nearly everybody's default, with what he calls "neutral thinking." His own special innovation, it's a nonjudgmental, nonreactive way of coolly assessing problems and analyzing crises, a mode of attack that offers luminous clarity and supreme calm in the critical moments before taking decisive action.Not only can neutral thinking raise your performance level-it can transform your overall life. And it all starts, Moawad says, with letting go. Past failures, past losses-let them go. "The past isn't predictive. If you can absorb and embrace that belief, everything changes. You'll instantly feel more calm. And the athlete-or employee or parent or spouse-who's more calm is also more aware, and more times than not ... will win."

You Deserve the Truth: Change the Stories that Shaped Your World and Build a World-Changing Life
Simon, Erica Williams
An award-winning media maker and social critic shares her truth to inspire a generation, teaching how to use the power of story to ask critical questions and build bold, new lives. Behind the social media smiles, many people in their twenties and thirties are living frustrating lives: overwhelmed and exhausted by the gap between their realities and the image they are expected to project to the world. Erica Williams Simon recognized that this generational malaise was a recipe for disaster, one that she was experiencing firsthand.At twenty-seven, she abruptly walked away from a high profile career as a rising political media star. She stepped off the “treadmill to nowhere” to find her own truth, unpacking the advice and cultural norms that had shaped her life as she knew it. Along the way she became “story smart,” was finally able to reject the lies that society had taught her, and rewrote a brand new values-driven narrative that has helped her create a life worth living.You Deserve the Truth is a masterclass in how to challenge the stories surrounding fear, work, money, identity, success, faith, and love that millions have unconsciously adopted. Each chapter includes the heroic and heartbreaking lessons learned from Erica’s journey and during her tenure inside the highest levels of politics, media, and tech.Part memoir, part self-help, You Deserve the Truth provides a blueprint for anyone seeking a new way to live; one that is authentic, empowered, and ultimately world changing.
