The Secrets of Mental Marksmanship
 

The soldier, the cop, the hunter or the competitive marksman will all agree on one thing, only hits count. Depending on the game you’re playing, it may be more important to be faster or it may be more important to be precise, but in the end it’s the shooter who can achieve his aim – perfect shots on demand, anywhere, any time, and all the time - who wins.

Our newest book, The Secrets of Mental Marksmanship, was launched in 2010.

The Mental Marksmanship book includes chapters on:

  • The Power in Your Mind
  • The Power in Your World
  • The Zone
  • Tools to Increase your Conscious Powers
  • Tools to Increase your Subconscious Powers
  • Tools to Increase your Self Image
  • Advanced Tools - Your Powers Applied
  • The Final Power - The Power of Perseverance

Each key idea in the book is complemented by four stories, one each from the military, law enforcement, hunting and competition. There are about 150 stories altogether and they provide an entertaining backdrop to the main theme of the book: no matter what the application, every marksman who wants to win needs these mental skills.

The Secrets of Mental Marksmanship is published by Paladin Press. Available online at many nice vendors including www.paladin-press.com, www.amazon.com, www.amazon.ca, www.gunbooks.uk.com, www.barnesandnoble.com, www.shootenstuff.com.au.
