Summary

A basketball coach turned business consultant shares high-performance secrets and shows how you can build the mental fortitude necessary to stay on top of your game.

What makes the best the best? Ultimately the best are where they are because of the mindset, habits, and rituals they have—both in their respective “arenas”, but also in private, during the unseen hours. Success isn’t something that happens to you. It's something you attract and you create. Successful people do the little things better than everyone else because they know all the big things arise from them. The highest performers in all walks of life have taken full ownership. They got to where they are and have stayed there because they have chosen to establish, tweak, and repeat positive habits. They understand that you can’t be selective when it comes to excellence, that how we do anything is how we do everything.

Based on his years as a successful basketball performance coach—training superstars like Steph Curry, Kevin Durant, and Kobe Bryant—and a speaker and trainer to major companies like Pepsi and Amex, Alan Stein brings you the keys to lasting, unimaginable success. The secret? Return to the basics. They're simple, but they're not easy. But the truth is that more connected, productive, and influential leaders and teammates find long-lasting success not with big flashy changes, but with the accumulated of the little things.

Sustain Your Game teaches you how to bring your A game to every area of your life. With advice from top CEOs, journalists, social scientists, and more, you'll learn the framework for how to beat stress, stagnation, and burnout. Sustain Your Game will help you be the best in your arena, wherever that may be.

I am thankful for this book

As a pregnant athlete and business women - who started stalling because my life was turned upside down when I could no longer compete - I find this book amazing. It took me right back into the athlete mindset, which I can use in my everyday life to optimize my routines, relationships and goals.

Eventhough I did a lot of mental training over the years, this book has taught me things and given me the necessary reminders.

Most importantly a reminder about how your mentality is either your limit or your strongest asset. I choose asset. And when I find myself in doubt of that, I will give this book a re-listen.

Great Read !

Loved it! Both books (Raise Your Game & Sustain Game) spoke numbers to me and I have taken a lot of your advice and utilized the various strategies and ideas that you have provided in your books in my life. I am a teacher/dean of students/Middle school AD in a small town in Wyoming and your books have worked well for me in each of those areas. I love when the author also does the voice for the audio!

Alan Gifts the World another gem!!

I have read Alan’s other book Raise your Game probably a dozen times, I have had the pleasure of chatting with Alan a few times but this review comes from an overall sense of fulfillment and enjoyment of this book.

In Sustain Your Game, Alan tackles a few different points of contention in personal and professional life. I think he does a perfect job of having the points flow and connect but I especially love the chapters on Burnout.

I am a young professional and a lot of friends and colleagues of mine are in a weird place coming out of Covid-19 Pandemic. Many have a bit of an identity crisis, the chapters on Burnout illustrate a lot of what causes these issues and offers up concrete solutions for mitigating or alleviating them. I was most impressed by how none of these chapters played a blame game. In this genre many books will direct those feelings inward, as a measure of ownership, often discounting or ignoring external causes entirely. I appreciate that Alan tackled it from a place of validating the feelings and offering structured ways to help!

Overall I was just impressed by how the book achieved so much, and so succinctly. At no point did chapters feel like fluff, everything had a purpose and everything was presented perfectly for the points it addressed.

If you’re a coach, parent, teacher, or manager this book is a must read. If you’re not any of those things I’d still recommend this because it accomplishes so much all at once. Thank you Alan as always for your great work! I can’t wait to give a copy to someone else to check out!
