Leighton Silva, a Professional Bull Rider from Riverside, California is my guest in this episode.
This will make you re-think nerves in your sport.
This will get you thinking about survival, persistence and belief. Leighton was focused on #1 World this year, he was in the best physical and mental condition until...
Please listen all the way through this podcast, it is essential listening for every athlete. Listen to this and you will put out of your mind what you thought was fear.
This maybe the re-set button in your sport to think, what is the worst thing that can happen and what have I got to worry about? A slow time in the pool a bad golf shot? it will all seem irrelevant after this!

Please connect with Leighton on Instagram and say thanks, he is a true champion for sharing this and be real and raw in this time.
You can also see 'That Bull' in his most recent posts.
Now please sit and absorb this podcast, not everything you hear in my episodes is inspirational, this is a reality check episode. I have got in early with this episode because athletes need to understand, success in sport is not guaranteed, there are many factors at play and if you are willing to confront many of them, you are willing to be a champion like Leighton.
The Athlete's Secret Weapon
Thank you and welcome to my podcast.
I am Stuart Walter, or as my clients call me, the Athletes Secret Weapon.
I am passionate about sport and even more about peak performance. I have the honour of working with some of the finest athletes in the world and now calling them friends.
Every athlete needs to understand the part mindset plays in sport and life and my mission is to have every athlete fully aware of their potential and focused on achieving it.
During my presentations I share this statement and I really get emotional about it…
“I want each of you to believe in yourselves as much as I do now”.
This may seem simple and easily glossed over, the truth is that only a few people believe in themselves and they are the ones that end up making a real difference in the world.
My mission is to
‘Empower people to change the way they think, believe, behave and communicate in a way that empowers others’.
This Podcast will do exactly that. When you listen to me interviewing these incredible athletes and sports associated specialists, you will get to learn the Fundamentals of the human mind. You will realise that these athletes are real people, that have overcome real issues to get real results. these results will empower you to think, believe, behave differently and you will go out in the world and empower others' through your actions and results.
Speaking of results, 36 World Champions choose to work with me for that reason... RESULTS! I know how to get the most from the best in the world.
What you have gone through and what you may go through will be easier when you understand what it takes to get to the top, to stay there, and to transition back into a life.
This journey will take you through the highs, the depth of the lows, the struggles the injuries and the sacrifice of life that is sport.
If sport is 80-90% mental, and a note here… the higher you are ranked, the more it is about belief and trust in yourself and your skills. You are going to be exposed as a person and have every action questioned. You will need a very thick skin to be successful.
So welcome on this journey into the mind and see why this is now the area of massive gains for athletes.
Coaches are now starting to see the advantages of a mindset program because they have a duty of care for their athletes and the results they see, leave them scratching their heads.
I have been in clinical practice now for 13 years and I am now even more passionate about sharing my knowledge, skills and tips while interviewing some amazing humans. They have given up their time to help you understand and they really open up to what they have been through in sport and life. It is very real, raw and emotional…
