Many of you have been following Andrew Goudelock and his journey to the NBA.
We are so proud of Drew. He remains humble while expressing great strength
and ability. This is the kind of man the NBA needs. He is a role model that children can
admire and imitate. He is willing to work hard. He is a team player.
He uses Confidence without arrogance. It is an attractive quality. He works on his Mental Game
and knows how important it is to his success.
He loves basketball and has fun when he plays. This is what we teach all the athletes
working with us. It is a game! It is meant to be fun. And, best of all, if you are having
fun you are playing from love-not fear!
Listen to an interview with Drew after working out with the Knicks:

The Sky Is So Alive
By Pamela S Welter
Look Up . . . to the sun – for warmth and light.
Look Up . . .to the moon & stars – for wishes and dreams.
Look Up . . . to crystal blue firmament – for clarity and vision.
Look Up . . . to wispy, floating clouds – for imagination.
Look Up . . . to lightning flashes – for inspiration.
Look Up . . . to light rays and rainbows – for hope and promise.
Look Up . . . to heavenly faces – with gratitude for guidance and protection.
A world awaits. Look Up!
“Someday, after we have mastered the winds, the waves, the tides and gravity, we will harness for God the energies of love and then, for the second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire!”
— Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
French Jesuit Priest and Philosopher
Have you noticed how the energy at tournaments or games is fearful and highly charged? If you are a player, coach or a parent coming into this energy it can affect you. Fear is contagious. Even if you arrived at the competition in good spirits you may find your mood and your energy shifting.
Be aware of the energy around you. Does it feel heavy? Does it feel scattered? Or does it feel light and flowing? When you are in the zone you feel weightless and timeless. It is a wonderful feeling. One worth learning how to achieve.
In my book, Yes, God Speaks to Women, Too! you can learn how to live and play from a place of love. Banish fear! Banish doubt! Banish frustration! Banish anger! Feel the joy! Feel the passion! Feel the love! Live the life you are meant to live!

Have you noticed how much more grandparents are involved in the activities of their precious grandchildren? Thanks to his baseball playing grandfather, little Alex pictured above is introduced to a wonderful sport before he can even sit up! Grandparents (and parents) all over the world are enjoying sharing their expertise with their grandchildren. If you are one of them, be sure to teach them to use confidence from the beginning of their introduction to sports and other activities. Look for tips on how to do this in my new book, The Confidence Factor.
Todays Peak Performance Training Tip:
Just for today, keep your thougths focused on what you want to achieve. Cast aside any thoughts that are fearful or about what you don’t want! For instance, if you are a baseball player wanting to increase your batting average, think only about hitting the ball. Replay images of yourself up to bat, feel yourself hitting the ball, see the ball land where you want it to, and finish with seeing yourself running like the wind making it safely to base. Be sure to feel the smile of satisfaction on your face!
Remember: What you visualize, you can realize!
The No. 1 Virginia men’s tennis team won its third consecutive ACC Tournament title and its fifth in the past six years by downing No. 20 Wake Forest 4-0 in Sunday’s final at the Cary Tennis Park. The Cavaliers won all three of its matches in the tournament by a 4-0 score, becoming the first team in ACC Tournament history to accomplish the feat.
“I am really proud of this championship,” said Virginia head coach Brian Boland. “We lost three of the best players in the country last year in Somdev Devvarman, Treat Huey and Teddy Angelinos. It says a lot about the young men on this team that they were able to step up this season. We have won five of the last six ACC Tournaments, but this one is really special.”
“The team is playing with a lot of confidence right now,” said Boland. “We have played a tough schedule and they have overcome some adversity.”
The Cavaliers receive the ACC’s automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament by winning the title. The field of 64 will be announced on April 28.
