Ana Bela Dinis

Nurse specialist in child’s & pediatrics’ health
at Aces Occidental Lisbon & Oeiras Health Center Grouping, Portugal.


When I first came in contact with Dave de Haan and Cristina Rolo, I acquired their book in Portuguese Mental Training in Tennis: applied strategies for success. Although the book has language and examples from tennis/sports, I have been able to apply the knowledge and tools included in this book to my profession as a nurse in the Health arena.

Using Cristina and Dave’s Mental Training book has been very useful and productive, at a personal and professional level.

For instance, I have been able to apply the knowledge and tools available in this book to develop and maintain not just my motivation, but also the motivation of the health professionals I work with.

I learned how to set S.M.A.R.T. goals, define effective goal achievement strategies, visualize targets, as well as how to implement daily, weekly and monthly analysis to monitor the goal attainment process.

My motivation motto is: “get smart, get inspired”. Therefore, no matter what your profession is, I strongly recommend Cristina’s and Dave’s Mental Training book.
