”Gary…just to let you know, I have your book with me in Chile and have used it from time to time to relay stories or utilize quotes as we prepared and won the FIFA U20 World Cup…Well done.”
“My U-14 girls went undefeated for the season and won the A flight this Fall. Our goals were set in August after Golden Goal and they stayed with it. A lot of credit goes to you as they repeated many of the mental skills you spoke to them about throughout the season!”
“I just wanted to thank you for presenting today’s teamwork seminar to us. It was enlightening and helpful. It brought up many areas and issues that we don’t think enough about and act on enough. You involved all the staff and hit on some issues key players in our office needed to hear. Thanks again!”
Wit kind regards,
“Gary wanted you to know the Pierrefonds Cobras finally did it! Our arch-rivals, Lakeshore, have been undefeated for two years running, but on Saturday our girls put through a win in our final cup game to take home gold!
You should know that each and every player had 3 things written on their hands going in to this match:
1. A “D” ( delete button ) on their index finger
2. The word “Focus” on their hand
3. The phrase “+ 1 % ” on their thumb
Our game was amazing! Thanks to you and the folks at Golden Goal for all we were able to take away from our time with you.”
“Gary, I enjoyed meeting you and your program is excellent. Plan on us seeing you again next year to continue our sessions!”

I want to thank you for all the work you have done with our team this season. After our loss to BC we hit a rough patch and I didn’t know if we were going to get back to the level we could play at …our heads weren’t in it. However, you came along and got everyone re-focused. What a difference it made on the field. The changed attitudes on the bench and on the field were all attributed to you. With the mental state and focus you gave us we were able to come back 3 out of 4 games. We would have not been able to do this without you. All your stories and props in your sessions made it fun and taught us things we can use for the rest of our lives.
I feel as though you were as much a part of this State Championship as any of our players. For us, we had an advantage going into the State Championship. We had a 12th player with us in our heads. The Pride is Forever!”
Thank you so much for everything

Thanks for the Character Education sessions you did with my class. The students were engaged in the discussions on decision making and were clearly excited each time you came in. I felt the sessions could be longer. Often the class was in a good discussion and we ran out of time.Your energy and connection with the kids was well suited for your topics. Hope to see again next year.”
This year was a record breaking year for the program and it had a lot to do with our trip to golden goal and the sessions we had with you. I am very interested in having you come up to Northern Valley Demarest for the 5 Leadership sessions and I also asked the head boys coach and he is also very interested.”
Thanks again ,

I just wanted to send you a quick email to say thanks for the great job that you and Rick did today at the soccer expo. My son was a demonstrator at the 1:30pm psychology seminar and I sat in on the program. I do not coach my son, so I was not sure what I would pick up from your seminar before it started. I figured it would be geared towards coaches, however, the more you continued to speak – the more my interest was piqued. Your talk pertained to soccer, but it also held valuable lessons for life.
My son and I talked about Focus, E-A-R and Fear and just had a wonderful talk for the hour and twenty minute ride home. I also just had to let you know that we have been using your “flush” technique today as well. We spoke about it on the way home and discussed scenarios where we could use this in our lives – him in school and sports and me in my business. Thanks again for the great job and my son and I are both looking forward to reading your book.”
