Dr. William K. (Bill) Thierfelder, President of Belmont Abbey College since 2004, has published a new book. In Less Than a Minute to Go: The Secret to World Performance in Sport, Business and Everyday Life, Thierfelder teaches powerful techniques to perform at the highest level both on and off the field.
As a student at the University of Maryland he dominated the high jump, winning fame as an All-American and National Champion. Later he earned his doctorate in sports psychology. He became a private coach and mentor to the world’s top athletes…and revealed to them his hard-won secrets for success.
In Less Than A Minute to Go, he shares the athletic drills he’s taught the world’s best athletes, from Olympians to Super Bowl stars. He shows how to develop an unyielding focus. And he flags the false motivators which can lead to bum-out and inconsistent performance, and which derail too many dreams of success. He shows how sports can and should engage the highest parts of our nature that, in fact, only when we are so engaged can we truly excel.
And he reveals how sports train and prepare us for other arenas-where we all are players-and how to succeed on and off the field.
