The following is an excerpt from Chad Pennington’s forward to Dr. Dan’s book, CLICK! The Competitive Edge:

“In 2007 I had a lot of time to think; that’s pretty much what you get to do when you’re spending time on the bench.  It would have been very easy to hear myself echoing the comments of a lot of sports writers and saying my career was finished or that I’d lost my touch.  But that’s not what I chose to do.

When things click, you know it’s right. It’s magic. But what’s the secret to making things click when YOU want them to?

Instead, I reached out to Dr. Dan Schaefer.  I first worked with Dr. Dan in 2005 after a shoulder injury.  At that point, we used hypnosis and some other techniques to control my self-talk, restore my confidence and help me get back in the game.  But 2007 was when I really took ownership.

In order to stay in the game – and be successful in it – you have to keep it simple.  This is the biggest challenge professional athletes face. With all the variables – media attention, family responsibilities, pressure from friends and business opportunities – it’s so easy for everything to crumble.  

This core concept of who you are – Dr. Dan calls it “You, Inc.” – is important to the longevity and success of your career as an athlete, but the concept goes beyond the football field.  It goes into family life, financial life, business life. In all these areas success comes back to that core concept. If you don’t remain true to it, you can get involved in things you have no business being in.  

The techniques that Dan and I have worked on over the past six years have truly helped me keep my craft at the center.  Without them, I wouldn’t have been able to provide for my wife and three boys. There’s no manual that tells you how to be a professional athlete – or how to convert your success on the field to success off the field.  This book helps to fill that gap.”
