Summary

The global pandemic has completely disrupted how, where, and when we work and added tremendous pressure to individuals and their families. Learn how to refocus and achieve your full potential from one of the world’s top mental performance coaches. In Train (Your Brain) Like an Olympian, Jean François Ménard provides the skills necessary to:  
		
		Remain focused in the face of distractions
		Overcome negative self-talk and replace it with a constructive mindset
		Recover quickly and learn from setbacks
		Be comfortable with the uncomfortable 
		
		 
Elite athletes need to deal with multiple distractions, manage their stress levels, and have robust self-confidence to deliver podium-worthy performances. In our current work-from-home reality, these pressures are also experienced by those of us who are asked to do more with less and work longer hours with fewer distinctions between work and private lives. The pressure to perform at your best and be on the mark is always present, and let’s face it, being consistently great in an environment like this is easier said than done. Whether your performance realm is the playing field, the workplace, the home office, or the classroom, mental strength is no longer simply an asset. It’s an absolute necessity.
		 
Thriving at work and in life doesn’t happen by accident: there are teachable skills that can help you stay positive, stay focused, and unleash your full potential. This book will give you exclusive access to techniques and strategies that help Cirque du Soleil artists, Olympians, and pro athletes become the best in the world.

    'Dark and mysterious ... The stuff nightmares are made of. The atmosphere of the book set me on edge before the story actually began ...

    South Lyon was a tiny, quaint town where everyone knew everyone else and their business. So what went on behind closed doors stayed behind closed doors. Author Patricia Garcia was a terrible student. She had a very hard time grasping what the teacher was trying to get across to her in class. When she entered high school, that was the very worst time for her.
    
     
    She tried very hard, but she just could not take it in. She struggled through high school. When it was time for her to graduate, she was not sure she was going to make it. Her father was so angry at her that he sent her mom over to talk to the principal, to see if she was indeed going to graduate. Her mom was told she would graduate but not by much. The abuse started, and you will see just how she lived through it all. 
    
     
     Her childhood was the beginning of all of the abuse she endured and how she finally broke the cycle of hurt.

    Ending Abuse - As Long as I...

    Letter to the World: Sharon Speaks told family, friends, and church community the childhood sexual abuse of a Catholic priest and her brothers. Now she is telling the world. She journaled the healing, betrayal, loss, the empowerment, the devastation, and the finding of her voice as it was safe.
    
     
    This partial autobiography is a gift of tools and ideas for supporting a survivor. Writing comes, and then poems and songs, as she moves from wanting someone to understand to understanding. We gain a different perspective of why violence, abuse, or assault happens and whether criminal and civil court proceedings help or hinder.
    
     
    Remembering the abuse as an adult, and having it confirmed by offenders, isnt often out there for public discussion. Sharon sees the book assisting families, communities, government law makers, as well as historians. It has a ten year (19922002) perspective of societys ways of dealing with sexual abuse.
    
     
    Whether it be educational curriculum for advisors in law, gender studies, medicine, counseling, social sciences, church and church leaders, family relationships, justice/offenders rehabilitation, domestic violence, cultural studies, residential school survivors, current affairs media, reporters in sports and recreation, schools and universities, seniors, or teenagers, this is relevant. 
    
     
    Society no longer sweeps abuse under the rug when its daily front page news. The book relates to those on a spiritual journey as well as adult survivors of child sexual abuse. It speaks to those seeking self-help or inspiration to support a family members healing. Its here for parents of someone raped or assaulted, or for anyone who has ever felt alone, a loss, or betrayal; it is for anyone who felt different, expendable, who wants to be understood, who feels battered and bruised, used and abused. 
    
     
    Sharon sees this as a letter to the world assisting us, communities and church leaders, to create new ways of being there for children. This is a book where healing happens, joy replaces despair, and there is hope for our worlda reason to go on!
