Greatness is available to all but only pursued by a few. Over the past 30 years, many great sports achievements share a common thread: Dr. David Cook.
Join Cook as he illuminates, through colorful stories about the mental performance of champions – including the San Antonio Spurs, many PGA players, the University of Kansas basketball and track and field teams, and more – the three strongest predictors of greatness: focus, passion and mental toughness. While that may sound simple, implementation has proven elusive for most competitors. Cook shares the specific techniques and journeys of athletes like Tim Duncan and Steve Kerr (NBA Champions), Steve Lowery (PGA Champion) and Scott Huffman (American record holder in pole vaulting).
Cook brings audiences into the locker room, behind the bench and into the boardroom as he shares the hidden principles of “greatness,” captured in his new book by the same name. This unique vantage point and the stories that unfold will inspire and equip you on the journey to your dreams.
