Tim Gallwey's book, The Inner Game of Tennis, has had a huge impact on Kerr. And he's not the only devotee — Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll is a huge fan and wrote the forward to a recent edition. Tom Brady, New England Patriots quarterback, has also posted quotes from the book on his Instagram.

This book offers key lessons for instances in which the anxious brain might sabotage whatever you are trying to accomplish, while helping readers understand how to stop their mind from getting in the way of their bodies.

Brady highlights a notable passage from a classic bestseller, surprisingly, about tennis. W. Timothy Gallwey's The Inner Game of Tennis: The Classic Side to the Mental Guide of Peak Performance was a phenomenon when it was published in 1972, mainly for its revolutionary take on overcoming the self-doubt, nervousness, and lapses of concentration that can keep a player from winning. As Gallwey wrote, Every game is composed of two parts, an outer game and an inner game. The former is played against opponents, and is filled with lots of contradictory advice; the latter is played within the mind of the player, and its principal obstacles are self-doubt and anxiety."

The source that Carroll cites most often in crediting the inspiration of his coaching habits is Timothy Gallwey’s The Inner Game of Tennis, which is about tennis only in some ways. Although tennis is Gallwey’s chosen craft, it’s easy to see how Carroll found it applicable to football–or indeed, how it can be applicable to anybody’s own ventures in life. Although there are a few tennis-specific chapters here and there that invite skimming for the non-player, The Inner Game of Tennis is a vessel for Gallwey’s teachings on “the art of relaxed concentration.” And, whatever you’re doing right now, doesn’t a place of relaxed concentration sound like a beautiful place to be?

Many players receive books from coaches and toss them in the back of their locker. Others flip through them, dutifully. Kerr read “Inner Game”, then read it again, taking notes. He was hooked.

The book’s basic concept is simple: Our brains often screw up what our bodies are perfectly capable of doing on their own “If you ever watch a tennis player, a lot of them will talk to themselves, explains Kerr. “[Gallwey] was a tennis teacher and he was watching his student one day and thought to himself, ‘Who is he talking to?’ It’s kind of weird if you actually stop and think about it. You’re talking to yourself, right? So does that mean there are two yous?”

What is The Inner Game?

In every human endeavor there are two arenas of engagement: the outer and the inner.

The outer game is played on an external arena to overcome external obstacles to reach an external goal. The inner game takes place within the mind of the player and is played against such obstacles as fear, self-doubt, lapses in focus, and limiting concepts or assumptions.The Inner Game is a proven method to overcome the self-imposed obstacles that prevent an individual or team from accessing their full potential.

Welcome from Timothy Gallwey

changed
corporate
culture?

“Using a skillful combination of audience interaction, reflective questions, group breakouts, lectures, videos and ‘live’ demonstrations, Gallwey’s presentation captivated the group. Any organization that is serious about enhancing its levels of people development would be well advised to consider a session with Tim Gallwey.”

Once upon a time, the Vice President of the largest company in the world took an Inner Game lesson and said: “You’ve found a better way to change.” He hired me to help transform AT&T from an old school monopoly into a modern competitive enterprise.

Using inner game methods, leaders enjoyed creating a new company and a new buyer centered approach to selling. The technicians became as curious as children, losing their fear of seeming unprofessional, while thousands of telephone operators learned to enjoy and truly benefit from their seemingly routine work. For AT&T, this was a game changer. Learn More about Inner Game Corporate Offerings…

Association for Coaching Interview with Tim Gallwey

It is impossible to achieve mastery or satisfaction in any endeavor without first developing some degree of mastery of the relatively neglected skills of the inner game. Most of us have experienced days when our self-interference was at a minimum. Whether on a sports field, at work, or in some creative effort, we have all had moments in which our actions flowed from us with a kind of effortless excellence. Athletes have called this state, “playing in the zone.” Generally at these times our mind is quiet and focused. But whatever it’s called, when we’re there, we excel, we learn, and we enjoy ourselves. Unfortunately most of us have also experienced times when everything we do seems difficult. With minds filled with self-criticism, hesitation, and over-analysis, our actions were awkward, mis-timed, and ineffective. Obviously we all would prefer to have more of the first and less of the second.
