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, people 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 person'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.

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.
