"That Winning Feeling" is all about choosing your future as a rider - and perhaps as a human being. Encompassing the areas of dressage, eventing and show jumping, Olympic candidate Jane Savoie presents a revolutionary approach to riding by which you can train your mind and shape your attitudes to achieve higher levels of skill than ever imagined. Psychocybernetics, the science of positive mind power, will show you how to replace your negative perceptions with creative, constructive and practical ideas. The book deals with such concepts as luck, worry, dreams, 'loser's limp', commitment, criticism, frustration, and inspiration. You will learn relaxation exercises that will not only ride you of stress and tension, but will also enable you to benefit fully from the use of 'imaging' as a working tool to achieve desired ends. And you will skilfully invoke the 'as if principle' to think and behave 'as if' you are already experiencing your wants and needs. In the chapter on 'The Power of Positive Speech', the author explains how words, and word-images, play a major role in determining your actions. For instance, if you say 'challenge' instead of 'problem', you will definitely enhance your performance. Conversely, if you speak negatively, you will decrease your chances of success. The 'Training' chapters of the book take all the general ideas and principles and apply them to specific situations. The book's final chapters deal with competition, focusing all the tools and techniques learned earlier on actual performance. We all have dreams. How many people are fortunate enough to live them? Jane Savoie not only knows how - but shares with you all her insights, creativity and inspirations so that you too can experience "That Winning Feeling".
