Description
John Eliot discusses his book, “Overachievement.” He begins by discussing how he served as a consultant to Rice University’s Baseball team who won the National Championship in 2003. He explains that as the team’s consultant he helped the players prepare mentally both before and after the games and helped them deal with the psychological factors of sports. Eliot goes on to explain that most people do not understand that many of the physical manifestations of stress, such as, sweaty hands and heavy breathing, is actually the body’s natural reactions to preparing to perform under pressure. He explains that this becomes a form of self-intimidation. Later in the interview Eliot discusses self-confidence and the tendency of people to fall into the trap of what he calls the “false God syndrome.” He explains that false God syndrome is the false belief that people who are successful are different then the average person and do not have the hassles that everyone else does. It is this comparison to other people that undermines a person's self-confidence.
