Episode 045

Deep within the subconscious mind lies a system of mental networks that govern us during times of peak performance. For the world's greatest competitors, a small margin in mental edge is the difference between wins and losses, and the highest performing athletes are always seeking an additional edge. Enter Elliot Roe, a leading expert in Mindset Optimization for High Performers and the world's #1 Mindset Coach for poker players.

In just the last 3 years his poker clients have won over $50,000,000 and nearly every major tournament title, including the World Series of Poker Main Event. 

His clientele also includes Olympic medalists, UFC Champions, Hollywood Actors, Business executives and wall street traders. 

His unique mindset coaching system leverages the power of hypnotherapy to eliminate fears and breakthrough mental roadblocks allowing you to operate in a state of peak performance every day. His app, Primed Mind, is a form of guided meditation; allowing you to experience transformative visualization, goal-setting, and relaxation techniques.

The lead into this episode was fascinating, as it was our first Skype conversation while on the Save the Deena Tour. We spent a few days scouting out co-working spaces and prepping for quality internet in Cartagena so we could dive deep into the sports psychology of a mind coach. Then Elliot gave us access to his Primed Mind mindset advantage app, and we floated away. Be forewarned, this is truly a powerful tool to visit your own psyche in an attempt to lose negative thoughts and improve confidence. The app really shows you the powerful potential behind hypnosis.

In this episode we learn about how hypnotherapy works, the effects of past bullying on fear, as well as preparation techniques to exploit edges in high-pressure situations. Besides diet and exercise, we also discuss how to pick up on cues on many athletes fail to recognize, and avoiding self-sabotaging behavior.
