Young professional sports car racer Dion von Moltke endorses Dr. Jacques Dallaire's performance program and his new book "Performance Thinking"
CORAL GABLES, Fla., June 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Grand-Am and American Le Mans series rising star Dion von Moltke is on a quest to become a multiple champion at the highest levels of sports car racing. In addition to maintaining a grueling physical training regimen and a disciplined nutrition program, Dion recognized early on that the 'mental game' was perhaps the most critical component necessary for him to achieve his performance goals. His research to find the best solution to help him master this component of the success equation led him to the doorstep of internationally-respected performance specialist Dr. Jacques Dallaire of Performance Prime.
Dr. Dallaire has worked with more than 700 high-performance racing drivers, as well as many hundreds of top-level athletes and high-risk/high-demand occupational professionals from different walks of life. In the sport of motor racing, he has worked with such iconic names as Senna, Mansell, Fittipaldi, Unser, Gordon, Haywood, Bell, Castroneves, and many more.
"I knew that well-developed mental skills were critical to my performance in a race car and learned that Dr. Dallaire has worked with many of the most successful race car drivers in the world. While he doesn't advertise his services and many of his clients never discuss it, I luckily found out about his work from another competitor in the paddock who was willing to share with me what he got from his experience working with Dr. Dallaire. I decided that I had no choice but to contact him and find out more about his performance programs," said Dion. "I'm so glad that I did because the experience and what I learned through his program has truly been life-changing for me as well!"
Dr. Jacques Dallaire shared this observation: "Every one of us mentally sabotages ourselves on a regular basis… it seems to be a trait shared by all humans! However, when we understand how this process of self-sabotage occurs and how we can more effectively control our thoughts, performance improves. My goal has always been to shed light on these issues and provide solutions that work, and Dion has been a top student who has really learned how to incorporate this kind of mental control into his work as a professional racing driver and into his life in general. He has over time, transformed his approach to performance and is developing a level of mental toughness that high-performance people dream of."
Young von Moltke is enthusiastic about the new book just released by Dr. Dallaire. "Dr. Jacques' new book 'Performance Thinking – Mental Skills for the Competitive World…and for Life!' addresses two basic but profoundly important questions for anyone interested in performance like me: How do I mentally sabotage my own performance? and How can I control my thinking in order to optimize my own performance? I am confident that it will help people clearly understand how the way that they think directly influences how they perform and it will help them to learn what I've learned… how to bring laser focus to everything I do, and how confidence plays into how I perform. While I'm not really happy that my competitors now have such easy access to this information with this book, I am excited that this information is now getting out to a lot more people who can certainly benefit from it."
Dion, who has been supported in his racing efforts for many years by PR Newswire and South African Airways, plans to continue to work with Dr. Dallaire as he advances in international sports car racing and strives to establish himself as a household name in the racing world. He has come to realize that the knowledge he has acquired from his work with Dr. Dallaire can help him to transfer this knowledge to other racers and performance-driven clients and he is incorporating the principles, concepts, and techniques that he has learned into the way he approaches his driver training sessions. His clients will be the beneficiaries of his quest for excellence and as he commits to further developing his mental skills and the mindset of a champion, he is confident that it may some day help him to win more racing championships around the world.
