Emotional Intelligence: From Flooding to Zoning and
Blue Print to Tennis Success
These books are the result of Dr. Valverde's research and professional experience working with professional, college, and junior tennis players since 1988. They explain the latest breakthroughs in the understanding of brain functioning and the application of this knowledge for mental toughness training.
These are motivational and practical books that will help you become aware of your unproductive inner scripts, their influence on your performance and the way to change them for the achievement of your goals. During this process, you will have the opportunity to pursue excellence through the integration of your mind and body. To achieve this, several powerful techniques and state-of-the-art mental systems are explained and discussed.
Trains your mind to enter the peak performance zone by leading it into optimal patterns: Beta for alertness and focus; Alpha for relaxation and creativity; Theta for meditation and learning; Delta for sleep. It also promotes hemispheric synchronization, the magic flow state.
Eighty to ninety percent of your attitudes and behaviors are controlled by your subconscious mind. Consequently, you are stuck with the habits and limitations of your past unless you deliberately retrain your subconscious mind. Even if you are consciously aware of a new or better way to do things, the possibility just bounces off of you if it is not consistent with your subconscious script. In order for you to retrain your subconscious, you need to reach a state of mind called Theta; in Theta the subconscious mind is most susceptible to new information. The theta state of mind is an elusive one and obtained voluntarily only by people who have trained their minds over long periods of time. However, with the Light and Sound System, you can achieve the Theta state of mind to retrain your subconscious mind.
These CDs utilize powerful visualization techniques and positive affirmations proven to help tennis players achieve optimum states of mind for peak performance. They will help you learn to enter into the peak performance zone and maintain your focus in clutch situations. You will learn to win the real battle that is within yourself, between your doubts and fears and the belief in yourself. Dr. Valverde believes that tennis is a great vehicle for learning about the complexity of the interactions between your mind, body and emotions. These CDs will teach you to see tennis as a microcosmos of life and to develop the mentality of a champion, so you can play with confidence, determination, great concentration and courage.
In addition to all the benefits described above, you will have the opportunity to train at the Valverde Excellence Center and experience its unique holistic approach that integrates all four components of the game – physical, technical, strategic and mental. This training focuses on all the details and is on a one-to-one basis in order to maximize its effectiveness.
