The Major Problem Confronting All Athletes
Whether playing for fun or as a highly-competitive, top-tier athlete, athletes want to use all of the capacity that they have built due to training for countless hours and spending sums of money on honing their skills. They want to have access to their very best when it counts the most. One of the main challenges is consistency: consistency of performance, consistency of results, consistency of focus, consistency of confidence, and even consistency of fun.
Whatever the game, there is a natural ebb and flow, and unfortunately when the game ebbs – so does our enjoyment, confidence, focus, and the belief that we can get back on track. When our game goes south or the pressure of crunch time builds, we quickly grasp at what we think has worked before, yet something keeps us from finding that zone or flow again.
There is in fact a solution – one that’s relatively simple to understand, but not quite so easy to master.
There are a set of COR.E Disciplines and Performance Influencers that create peak performance. You can think of these disciplines and influencers as the energy of performance. When optimized, these elements significantly raise our ability to perform. Additionally, they provide us a means of getting back into that state of high performance.
As any great athlete knows, high performance is not simply about talent or mechanics.
High performance is a “state” that brings everything together –
it’s where the inner and outer games harmonize and your potential is realized.
When athletes describe a state of flow, of effortless performance, they often cite a connection to everything around them. In his famed book, Flow in Sports, Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi describes flow as “a harmonious experience where the mind and body are working together effortlessly.”

The Long List of Areas You’ll Develop and Master
This is just a partial list of some of the areas critical to conquering the most common challenges that athletes say they consistently face (download “The One Thing” Report for Athletes below to learn the Top 10 Challenges and how COR.E Performance Dynamics helps you eliminate them). Each one of these areas will enhance and optimize your performance level, and are drawn from 5 COR.E program components that you’ll see below. To perform at your potential, you must:
- Develop confidence, feel it during the challenge of sport, and keep it in the aftermath of adversity
- Identify your personally preferred method of practice that yields the best results in the least amount of time
- Learn how to transfer what works in practice to the playing field
- Create long-term, powerful goals and short-term strategies that work toward the future AND have an immediate effect on performance
- Remove distractions in order to develop concentration, focus, alertness, decision-making abilities, and other attributes of successful top athletes
- Develop the understanding of the energy of performance and the ability to shift it in the moment
- Beat self-sabotage before it begins
- Break down any barriers to improved performance
- Create a network and team for success
- Develop a plan for success; implement that plan, be accountable to it, and overcome anything that gets in the way of it
- Develop a personal success formula
- Use your current level of skill to produce the best results you are currently capable of producing
- Create a game philosophy and perspective that creates success both in sports and life
So how will you develop and master the above?
The 5 Components of COR.E Performance Dynamics
Component 1 – Creating Your Game Plan
Most athletes are looking for something more out of their performance or game, but they are either unclear of exactly what it is or have only defined part of the goal and not the complete picture. For instance, a golfer may name a handicap he wants to achieve, but spends no time painting a picture around the type of experience he wants to have while golfing or how he plans to handle adversity. Without this clarity and complete vision, you can struggle to reach the level of performance you’re looking for – and even if you reach your goal, you may still feel like something is missing. Any of this can lead to uncertainty, lack of confidence in decision-making, lack of fulfillment and enjoyment, and feeling constantly bored or consistently uneasy.
Component 2 – Establishing Your Energy & Performance Foundation
When it comes to high performance, athletes are simply unaware of why they perform well one day, and poorly the next. It’s rarely, if ever, the skill level that changes from day to day or even moment to moment; it’s the athlete’s energy that is constantly changing. These up and downs often create a love/hate relationship with their sport that leads to joys and disappointments. Simply stated, spiritually, mentally, and emotionally, they just don’t get from their sport what it’s capable of providing. By understanding the nature of the energy of performance, an athlete can take steps to proactively create consistent experiences, as well as make quick adjustments in the moment when things go sour. Without the right type and amount of energy, the game is lost before it’s even played.
Component 3 – Finding and Harnessing Your COR.E Performance Influencers
How do you make real, meaningful, and intentional changes in the moment in a manner that either redirects your momentum to get back on track or further enhances your energy when things are going well?
This amazing component helps you understand how to solve issues – on and off the course in real time. Waiting to make adjustments after your game is for long-term progress – and of course that is very important. You also need to know what to do in the moment so you can revamp, rethink, and retry on the fly.
COR.E Performance Dynamics helps you understand how to boost your energy and performance as you’re playing. You’ll develop a personal success formula that you can apply in the moment – capitalizing on your strengths, traits, preferences, and attitude. This in turn dramatically improves the repeatability and consistency of your performance.
Component 4 – Mastering the 10 COR.E Disciplines
Where do distractions, lack of motivation or confidence, sabotaging self-talk, and other hexes that plague athletes comes from?
The world’s greatest athletes get their calm, cool swagger from a frame of mind, perspective, or attitude that unleashes their full potential. They have developed an approach to their game that keeps their motivation high, their resiliency strong, and their ability to spot opportunities to excel sharp.
This component reveals the 10 COR.E Disciplines that are instrumental to bringing out your ideal performance state.
Component 5 – Optimizing Your Success Formula
One of the key elements to understand AND embrace: what worked yesterday may not work today, nor should it. You need to know how to evolve as you and your game are forever evolving. You have to continue to refine your approach – keeping what’s working, modifying as you go, and eliminating the elements that no longer serve you.
This optimization process and learning to navigate the evolution of your game takes time. Understanding what is and is not working in your game can be complex, as is determining the real driver behind the changes in your performance. Is it what it appears to be on the surface or is it something else that you’re overcompensating for? This is where real optimization comes from – knowing truly what’s at the core of your performance level and knowing how to mold, shape, and evolve it proactively and intentionally over time.
It’s time for you to play the game as you’ve never played it before.
