My 1st book Mental Toughness Training for Golf: Start Strong Finish Strong took 2 1/2 years to complete, because I had the security of a being a professor.
On the other hand, The Hinge was written when I had the awesome idea to “pursue my goals and dreams.” I began writing on August 1st, 2012 and it has been a difficult 15 months. I am an all-in guy, so I couldn’t write some here and there. I wrote every day….2 hours every day and some days I had nothing more than two sentences because the research took over. It sapped much of my strength because after writing for 2 hours every day, I would still think and obsesses about it…Honestly, financially, not a good decision either. (If you decide to write a book, have a steady income coming in…)
However, I have been blessed to share the unique concept of Mental Toughness, because it only takes one! One purpose of my life was to write this book. That is why I set the goal for The Hinge: The Importance of Mental Toughness to become the #1 Sport psychology book! I was fortunate enough to capture 38 stories of Hinge moments and have two Olympic Gold Medalists endorse the book…I was also able to have a fantastic book produced by Teri Capron of Fresh Design. I really believe that it can impact thousands of coaches, parents, teams, and athletes, but not without your help. I thank you all who can support the book, spread the word, and share your Hinge Moments.
