Female Tennis Player: Achievement

“Tennis skills and fitness are obviously important for performance, however the strength of your mental game to stay focused, and deal with nervousness often determine the winner. One of the most important abilities that I gained through working with Ahead in the Game are the mental skills and perspectives for resetting between points. I have learned to manage my emotions more skillfully, and put my mindset on what I need to do to win, not worry about losing.”

“I work in an environment that involves juggling many projects simultaneously, dealing with a variety of clients and often facing the stress of tight deadlines. I found the m.SOAR program as taught by Tara to be extremely enlightening and helpful not just at the corporate level but also at the personal level. This program teaches you how to better manage your attention, to cultivate meta-awareness, all of which offer tremendous spin off benefits in areas such as stress reduction, improving mood and well being, etc. This workshop has been frankly life changing for me.
