"I practice a skill over and over even if I am afraid of it. Soon enough, the fear starts to fade and is replaced by certainty and confidence. It takes courage and discipline to want to be better than I am today. It takes careful planning, trust in my decisions and plain hard work. I will always challenge myself a step further than my competitors. This is what it takes."
Lydia Lassila, Aerial Skiing.

"Jeff, you are great.  Great in the sense that you can inspire people.  Why?  Because you are inspired.  It comes from your commitment, inner conviction, deep sincerity and gentle humane respectfulness to others.  You are also a rare human being and I only wish we had more people like you on planet Earth.  May you be blessed to continue this great work for many more years to come."
Lakshman Fernando, Lecturer, University of Kelanya , Sri Lanka .
[Speaking after a 5-Day  Sportsmind Mental Mastery training for Sri Lankan national athletes and coaches]

"Thanks again! Your session for our crew was GREAT - we won the Nationals!"
Shelley Oates-Wilding, Olympic Kayaker, NSW.

"As someone who has competed at an elite level for over ten years, I have learnt many skills physically and mentally which work to optimise performance. However I think it has only been in the last few years of my career in the sport of Springboard Diving that I have truly began to understand and utilise mental training techniques for training and competition. It has become undeniably clear to me that no matter how hard you prepare yourself physically, if you don't understand and invest in mental training your full potential will remain unlocked.

Jeffrey Hodges and his Sportsmind program taught me invaluable skills in mental training. I also attended the Coaching Excellence Conference last year which was both educational and inspiring. Jeffrey breaks down his theories and techniques into such easily understandable and undeniable clarity that I found I came out the other side of the two day conference with a complete positive change of headspace, which I have managed to bring to my training and competitions this year.

I recently competed in the FINA Diving Grand Prix in Spain and won a silver medal - my most significant result to date. Earlier this year I also achieved a personal best score at the Australian Open Championships. I honestly believe that without the focus I have put on mental training through the Sportsmind program and the concepts I gained from the Coaching Excellence Conference I would not have improved my diving anywhere near as much, and I would not have achieved my most exciting results.

Any athlete or coach who is serious about excelling in their sport, must invest in mental training. As the standard of all sports internationally progresses an open mind in essential in finding new ways to improve. Mental training is the key, and one that is too often underestimated. The Sportsmind program and the Coaching Excellence Conferences are revolutionary in mental training and will, without question, significantly improve performance in any sport."
Olivia Wright, Diving, Qld. FINA 2009 Grand Prix silver medalist

"Jeff you have given me some very useful tools – your sports hypnosis course is highly recommended for any sportsperson. I am looking forward to the future. Training he mind is one of the keys for achievement – the last key I have been looking for. Thanky you very much."
Stan Motutere, Darts, Qld.

“Thanks for all your help this year, it shows in my riding and comps. I would recommend and I have recommended to others in my field that what ever your sporting field that you take advantage of the Sportsmind course - it changed my attitude toward myself and my sport, allowing me to learn quicker, ride better and view my competitions in a level achievable frame of mind. Even when tired from competing, training and travelling I have been able to stay motivated, this is something I struggled with in the past, now I leave a show and can't wait to get home to start planning and training for the next one. Again thanks. I owe a few good trainers thanks this year but with out this help from Jeffery to start me off, I would not have achieved so much.”
Sue Franks, Equestrian Performer(Reigning), Qld.

"I have found over the years that Sportsmind has given me the tools to make some fantastic changes and achieve great results that have enhanced both my career and my life. Elite athletes need elite minded support to consistently achieve extraordinary results and I believe Sportsmind can offer you the skills to put you in control. If you are an elite athlete or anyone wanting to live your life at an extraordinary level I recommend working with Sportsmind. I believe in it so much I am now learning more about the techniques used to benefit my coaching as well."
Shelley Oates Wilding Dual Olympian and World Champion, Kayaking

"I've been coaching for 8 years, and I've been to many seminars on mental training for elite athletes. The Sportsmind lecture which I and my elite athletes attended was the first that really went into depth ....... My athletes trained harder the day after the lecture, and every session since. I highly recommend Jeffrey Hodges and his Sportsmind lectures are a must for anyone aspiring to more successful sports performance."
Sue Stevenson, Level 2 Table Tennis Coach, 1996 Australian Table Tennis Coach of the year.

"Jeffrey, your Sportsmind training program takes sports psychology to a level that I didn’t know existed. My expectations were to learn mental skills that would help me perform better. Not only have I achieved this, but I now know myself at a different level. I have analyzed all the aspects that make up me: my thoughts, emotions, beliefs and values. I have learned to take control over them, empowering me to shape my own future. Many thanks"
Lydia Lassila, Aerial Skiing.

"Even though we have not made contact for quite a while, I am still an energetic netball coach following your Sportsmind advice and direction, and our club has gone from strength to strength mainly due to your teachings...... Yesterday I received an O.A.M. which I must state was mainly due to your advice re coaching.  Again, Jeffrey, I must say thank you."                                                 Alan Fairbanks O.A.M., Netball coach, Vic.

"Course was great - all sessions were great - I haven't stopped telling everyone I know about it, "getting in the zone" etc..."
Spiro Anemogiannis, Managing Director, Informa Australia

"The Sportsmind conference gave an insight into usable mental skill techniques with an addition of an introduction into how to use attentional focus to improve performance. The sessions were leading edge, linking the body to the mind with the emphasis on getting the most out of both."
Trent Hole & Shaz Angel, PE Teachers, Balmoral State High School.

"I recommend the Sportsmind conference for other coaches - it opens up some new avenues and reinforces your confidence. I am sure the knowledge I picked up will benefit our program through my daily work."

Sally McPherson, Dressage, Vic.

"Doing Mental Mastery was one of the best decisions I've ever made. The techniques Jeffrey uses are so powerful and the changes I have made have left my mind and body free to progress to greatness. I recommend this course to any and every athlete, no matter what level. It has opened my eyes to the natural strategies of champions - one's we all have within us. Thankyou Jeffrey!"
Rowena Bright, Australian Olympic Skiing team, Winter Olympics 2002.

"Champion Thoughts, Champion Feelings is tremendous! It has already helped me with my coaching, and left me looking to learn more."
Peter Bowler, Cricket Coach, WA.

"My archery has really taken off since the Sportsmind seminar. It gave me a new vision and showed me where I really want to be, and I am well on track. I set my goals for next year, and beat them all at the start of this year! When I was younger I used to be at the top as a junior, and I was quite high as a senior as well, but only in the top 20. Now I have leaped into the top 10! I have shot scores that I have been trying for for a long time, and doing them when it matters as well. I shot at the World University Championships in Madrid, I qualified 16th which I was very happy with, but I knew I could to better. Then came the knock out matches and I stormed through them, drawing with the number one seed. Unfortunately in a 1 arrow shoot off he just beat me. But I shot personal bests all the way through and decimated my other opponents. If I was against anyone else on that field except the no.1 I would have managed to get a medal. Never the less, I am over the moon with my 9th place. This got me sponsorship from a bow manufacturer and has also set me up for shooting at the World Student Games in Turkey next year! Also over this year I won the EuroNations even held in Ireland. And have also qualified for the Senior GB Team for 2005 (subject to a Round Robin next year). This will take me to Poland and Belgium for European matches and Madrid for the Senior World Champs.

Thank you for all your help! "
Andrew Callaway GB University World Team, Archery

"Jeff has created a powerful blend of sport psychology, NLP and hypnosis that delights and entertains. It takes the 'thinking' out of positive thinking making it easy and effortless and provides the tools to make unconscious mastery a reality. Fluently presented, Jeff's a great facilitator. If you have a chance to go to Mental Mastery - take it!"
David Smith, Sport Psychologist, U.K.
