Full Throttle reveals the true key to world-class success in any endeavor—whether it's the world of business, sports, or anything else. Over many years and many personal experiences with people who are the best at what they do, author and expert on human performance, Gregg Steinberg has learned one incredibly valuable lesson—when you master your emotions, you can master anything.

The ability to control your emotions is the single most important ingredient for a healthier, happier, and more successful life. Ultimately, your emotions control your performance. When fear and anger consume you, your potential for success is limited. When you live your life to conquer daily challenges with vigor and excitement, you unleash your full range of talents and let yourself soar.

Whether you're a CEO or a world-class athlete, an administrative assistant, or a salesperson, emotional mastery will give you a big leg-up on the competition. Six vital emotional strengths make up the very core of emotional mastery; conquering them will make you the master of your own universe:

  • Awareness—understanding your own emotions is the key to managing them

  • Preparedness—winners plan for the best outcome but prepare for the worst

  • Bravad—you must turn fear into apositive action

  • Connectedness—connecting emotionally with the now leads to better outcomes

  • Drive—knowledge and intention is not enough, you must be truly committed to succeed

  • Balance—the journey is long and difficult; balance will help you stay the course

Each section of Full Throttle explores one of these vital emotional strengths and gives you the tools needed to gain mastery over your emotions. Chapters include inspiring success stories of individual achievement, exercises and drills to help you enhance your emotional strengths, and important tips that will help you succeed in any particular achievement situation.

Conquer yourself and you can conquer any challenge. Full Throttle gives you a coherent, long-term system that will help you thrive on the inside in order to soar on the outside.
