45 Years of The Inner Game

In 1971, while on sabbatical from a career in higher education, Tim Gallwey took a job as tennis professional in Seaside, California. While teaching on the court one day, he realized that many of his instructions were being incorporated in the student’s mind as a kind of “command and control” self-dialogue that was significantly interfering with both learning and performance.

In 1974, initial experiments and their surprising results were published as The Inner Game of Tennis. The book surpassed expectations of both author and publisher by selling over one hundred times more copies than predicted and soon became a New York Times Bestseller.

The Inner Game takes place in the mind, and is played against rivals very difficult to be defeated, such as nervousness, lack of confidence and fear of failure. Even great leaders, athletes and normal people fight against their inner enemies to achieve success and high performance.

How can we maintain concentration in situations of extreme pressure? How can we fight with our inner voice that insists on stating “you are not prepared and you are not doing a good job today”. The concept of the Inner Game offers concrete ways for you, regardless of your area of focus, to be able to concentrate on preventing insecurities from interfering with your main goals and high performance.
