“The mind programme that helped me win my Olympic Golds.”
Sir Chris Hoy
“Steve Peters is the most important person in my career.”
“Thank you Steve Peters for opening my eyes on how to approach my worries and fears and for simply being the world expert on common sense – isn’t it odd how extremely rare “common” sense is?”
Sir Bradley Wiggins
In this, his first book, The Chimp Paradox, Steve shares his phenomenally successful mind management programme that has been used to help elite athletes and senior managers alike to conquer their fears and operate with greater control, focus and confidence.
Seemingly complex concepts are made simple with the use of memorable analogies — such as the ‘chimp’, that seemingly irrational and impulsive being that inhabits our minds and real-life case studies. Never before will you have had such a deep and clear understanding of your own behaviour and natural responses to certain people or situations.
This knowledge, combined with simple techniques that can be easily incorporated into daily life, will help you to control your emotional impulses and reach your full potential, leading to success at work and a happier, harmonious home life.
