10-Minute Toughness is a solid mental-training program. In fact, I feel it is the best of its kind… [It is] what the title says: ten minutes a day that connect your talents and abilities to the outcome you are seeking. As a retired NFL player, I can see as many applications in the business world as on the football field.”
Jeff Wilkins
Former NFL Pro Bowl Kicker

“Before learning the mental workout, I really didn’t know if I would be healthy enough to be able to compete in the (Olympic) games. Once I started doing the mental workouts everyday, I immediately started having better training sessions and I knew I was on track.”
Justin Spring
Bronze Medalist in the 2008 Olympic Games

10-Minute Toughness applies to the competitive world of business as much if not more than Major League sports. Applying Jason’s principles have helped tremendously in my own work as well as with all the executives I am coaching. Thanks Dr. Selk. Coach Wooden would be proud!”
Tom Bartow
Former Broker and Corporate Trainer, Edward Jones

10-Minute Toughness literally changed my life. So many others suggest what your end result should be, but not any help on HOW to actually do it. 10-MT is a step-by-step guide to helping people achieve their goals and to be tough when it matters the most. Without 10-MT I never would have been able to go to the Olympics in 2010 and win a bronze medal. I really suggest 10-MT to anyone (athlete or not) who needs help in putting together a plan to reach his/her goals.”
Shannon Bahrke
Olympic Silver and Bronze Medalist

“Whether your “game” is an actual sport, college exam, business negotiation, writing project… (anything), Jason helps you break a goal down from ‘product’ to ‘process’ and turn that goal into reality by creating a 10-minute daily “mental workout” for its achievement. Bottom line: If you want to improve your performance in sports or any endeavor, 10-Minute Toughness has your simple yet comprehensive mental formula.”
Scott Abbett
Author of HardBody Success

“Prior to hiring Tom and Jason, I had nothing in my short term, much less long term pipeline.  I had a whole lot of talking about planning and very little structure.  We were a successful office working month to month. We had a few relationships with attorneys and CPAs, but no real interaction.  If we got a single million-dollar client a year, it was a very big deal.

In less than five months, we have an overflowing pipeline, with over 10 million in potential incoming assets, four of which have more than a million dollars.  I am having regular lunch with attorneys and CPAs, we are in conversation with 20+ 401K plans, and dripping on another 30, with the hopes of landing one in the next two years.  Each plan has at least 5 million in AUM and over 50 employees, some much larger.  I am now on a board of directors at a senior center, and have been asked to be on a council with the local bar association. My wife and I have become more involved in our church as well as a local charity that works with special needs children.  All of which are passion projects that will engage me /us with key leaders and individuals in our community.

What did I change…   I now arrive at my office at 7 a.m., do my mental workout, and get a ton of work done before 9:00.  I only check my email three times a day, only responding to what’s necessary, and close it completely in between.  At 2 p.m. each day I stop and plan the next day, and for one or two hours each weekend, I make sure my week is laid out well, so I don’t have to search for calls I want to make.

Lastly, the first week I started this process I “knocked it out of the park,” the second week I was much less successful and almost felt depressed that I was starting another “plan” and not following through again.  I then remembered Jason talking about increasing success over time, not being perfect.  This allowed me to realize that If I was better three or four days a week, that was a huge improvement, not a failure.”
Dan Calloway
Edward Jones Financial Advisor

I don’t think I’ve ever heard this level of excitement from our group before – and you know that we’ve had some amazing speakers that they absolutely loved.

I really got the sense that Jason cared about our organization and about helping us as individuals be successful. He showed up early so he could hear our President’s speech (which was unnecessary, but totally appreciated – he then drew links in his speech about what our President had said).

I think what makes me the happiest is that Jason really made his content real and accessible for people – he was honest that we would need to force ourselves to practice RSF and doing the success logs. But he made it easy and something that’s not too overly burdensome. And because he included theory, research and practical tips, his presentation was applicable to all learning styles in our audience and I think most people will have taken something valuable away.
