Elite performers don’t rely on talent alone. Rather, they harness the power of shifting between complementary mindsets—one for preparing effectively and one for delivering when it counts. In Shift Your Mind, you’ll learn nine key mental shifts to elevate your preparation and your performance like an elite performer. You’ll understand the importance of each of these shifts and when to make them:
- humble and arrogant
- work and play
- perfectionistic and adaptable
- analysis and instinct
- experimenting and trusting process
- uncomfortable and comfortable
- future and present
- fear and fearlessness
- selfish and selfless
Drawing on years of experience working with top athletes and corporate leaders, Brian Levenson outlines his simple but powerful framework used by the world’s highest achievers. Each chapter includes exercises to reinforce core concepts and explore the power of the shift using skills like visualization, mindfulness, and self-talk.
An energizing read filled with entertaining stories and tips that really work, Brian Levenson’s Shift Your Mind is a game-changer for executives, competitive athletes, and any performer seeking to win on the most challenging field of all: the mind.

Meet your coach: Brian Levenson
Executive and mental performance coach Brian Levenson has spent years working with high performers in sports, business, and nonprofits. Again and again he saw something surprising: Talented people were failing to reach their full potential, not because they lacked the skills, but because they didn’t have insight into the mental processes that fueled them.
Brian began interviewing former CIA agents, world-class chefs, astronauts, CEOs, and more to reach a powerful conclusion. The best of the best understand preparation and performance as two distinct mindsets, and they practice both to move seamlessly from drills to game-changing plays and back again.
From those observations to this book, Brian has worked to make his high-performance coaching accessible and approachable. Make the right moves at the right time with Shift Your Mind.
