Attention High-Achieving Student Athletes...

How To Build Gameday Confidence Without The Anger, Frustration, Mental Breakdowns

Don't Think Yourself Out of Succeeding


"Michael Cooper has changed my son's life! He as gone from a player/person who was unsure of most everything he did, to one that is confident, decisive and certain that he can achieve any goal he sets."

Dear Devoted Parent,

You are very fortunate.

Your child has been gifted with the physical attributes to compete at a very high level. They love the competition and are always striving to get better.

That grit and determination can serve them well throughout their life. 

Of course the competition has never been more heated and intense pushing you to turn over every stone in search of that camp, clinic or trainer that can give them an edge.

Here’s the problem.

Your athlete can be the most talented and have all the right physical features but if they do not have the correct mindset they will not be successful…in their sport…


one small setback can set off a chain of negative consequences 

They want to be the best. You want the best for them.

You want them to be determined, confident and mentally well-adjusted in order to take on whatever the world throws at them.

Your student athlete is good at their chosen sport. With all of the success they’ve experienced, one thing we know is…

There will be setbacks and disappointment. 

Your child won’t always be at the very top of their game (none of us are). A couple of bad games or matches in a row can suddenly cripple their confidence.
Your heart sinks. You want to fix it. So you reassure them that “it’s only a game” and “it will be better next time.” The truth is, they are used to winning and are completely, mentally, unprepared to deal with these unexpected consequences.

They are crushed.

And you’re really not sure how to get them 
to feel good about themselves again.


The stress, anxiety and lack of confidence seeps well beyond the field.

You may have already noticed (or have even dealt with) some signs that there is a growing, underlying problem…

…mood swings

…angry, unexpected outbursts

…grades quickly falling

…arguing and fighting with siblings and other family members

…your “baby” is no longer the “happy go lucky” kid they used to be
You want to uncover the root of the problem and find a solution but you are surprisingly stonewalled by the very person you love so much and want so desperately to help. 

Make no mistake about it. 


  • A recent survey by American Psychological Association found that 30 percent of teens reported feeling sad or depressed because of stress and 31 percent felt overwhelmed. Another 36 percent said that stress makes them tired and 23 percent said they’ve skipped meals because of it.
  • On average, teens reported their stress level was 5.8 on 10-point scale, compared with 5.1 for adults.
  • Suicide is the SECOND leading cause of death for college-age youth and ages 12-18.
  • This is alarming! 

Don't think "going pro" means immunity 

The hard truth is that only 6.5% of high school football players end up playing in college. Only 1.6% of college players get drafted by the NFL. The other major sports have similar stats.

This isn’t meant to be a dream killer. It’s meant to be a wake-up call. 

Your young athlete may be the cream of the crop and actually make it to the pros.

Did you know that 78 percent of NFL players are bankrupt or facing serious financial stress within two years of ending their playing careers?

It’s clear that with the negative consequences of financial, relationship and legal problems along with major health issues and even suicide…there is something essential missing amongst elite athletes.


Even if things today seem okay…don’t fall into the trap of being an ostrich parent …sticking your head in the sand and pretending that it can’t happen to you.

It can.

You know that it’s never too soon to give your child the best life skills and mental training available. Sadly, it can be TOO LATE.

there is a powerful & permanent solution!

The pressure that comes from wanting to constantly do well and “be the best” doesn’t have to cause paralyzing stress and gut-wrenching anxiety.

As a matter of fact that pressure can become their biggest ally and most sought after friend. 

It will actually BOOST their performance in everything they do!

The problem is you and your loved one are missing the “secret formula.”

I am going to share it with you. A formula SO POWERFUL it literally transforms lives.

Your high-achiever will learn to:
  • Squash those negative voices in their head
  • Break out of any mental bond holding them hostage
  • Find their concrete purpose and stop drifting
  • Develop laser focus and unwavering confidence
  • Sustained happiness and fulfillment
  • Change how they think permanently 
Until now I have reserved this little known knowledge for my high-paying clients. 

Today, I am presenting it to you.

who am i and why should you listen to what i have to say?

My name is Michael Cooper. 

I don’t expect you to trust me. You probably don’t know me. 

All I ask is that you give me 1%...a cracked door if you will. I plan to earn the other 99% from you. Fair enough?

I want to be clear. I am not some know-it-all guru or some puffy celebrity trying to leverage some notoriety. 

I am however, one of the world’s leading authorities on helping peak performers become even better…not just in their sport but by mastering the entire game we call life. 

I have personally guided and mentored some of the world’s finest junior, amateur and professional athletes, along with prominent corporate leaders.

Of course this wasn’t always the case. 

When I was only 4 years old I started BMX bike racing. I also started playing both baseball and football. I was immersed in all three sports for the first decade of my life.
I traveled all over the country and learned quickly about winning and losing as well as the pressure to perform on big stages. 

When I was about to turn 10 I made the decision to stop racing and focus my attention on baseball and football. I was doing extremely well. I thought I was on top of the world.
At 11 that world suddenly crumbled to dust when my parents got unexpectedly divorced. I was upset and extremely angry.

Everything changed for me practically overnight. I felt alone…completely by myself. I didn’t have the formula I’m about to reveal to you.

I spent a number of years drifting through life…drifting without a purpose. I was even homeless for a time wandering the streets with only a ragged backpack.

My older brother was an F-15 fighter pilot. I wanted to be a Seal. I figured I had nothing to lose so I joined the Navy. It was here I received my first powerful lessons in handling pressure and dealing with adversity. I began to learn how to manage my emotions.

Even after moderate success in a computer business and publishing my own magazine, I was still searching for my place in the world.

a "chance" book guides me to the formula

One year around the holidays, my Mother asked me what I wanted. I replied “I want you to get me some books.” After looking at me like I lost my mind, she proceeded to buy me 5 books. Four were text books…history, science etc.

But the fifth book was “The Commonsense MBA: The Seven Practices of Enduring Businesses for the Entrepreneur.” The foreword was by the late Stephen Covey.

That book put me on the path to changing my life. I now had an insatiable love for books and learning.

The first book I purchased for myself practically jumped off the shelf at me. “Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill set me on the powerful course to mental toughness and self-determination I’m on today.

In short I continued my training becoming a Napoleon Hill Foundation Certified Leader. I also studied with Bob Proctor who was the protégé to Earl Nightingale…one of Hill’s students. Under Bob’s tutelage, I became a Life Success Consultant.

Not everyone is going to spend 30 years to learn these essential performance and life skills.

That’s why I’ve taken my more than 30 years of study and hands on work with literally thousands of student athletes and adult leaders and poured the very best of what I’ve learned into the most potent, practical, real world solution for high-achievers…anywhere.

what THE MISSING PLAYBOOK is all about:

The Missing Playbook Mentorship Program is a private online portal to the most effective hands on methodology to guide your youngster to mastering the game of life. 


The vision that you mentally entertain must always be clear, larger and more magnificent than the conditions or circumstances in which you presently find yourself in your material world. It is the vision in your mind, harmonizing with your purpose, that creates the inspiration that causes you to stretch yourself beyond the barriers that hold most people back. The vision you hold also determines the frequency of your cognitive thoughts. The larger and clearer your vision, the bigger, better and more effective the creative and fulfilling ideas will be that flow into your consciousness.


The strategy is an extremely important process in creating detailed plans to achieve success. It is the right strategy that brings the vision to life. Most do not know how or when to Plan, Do, Check, Adjust a high-level plan to achieve one or more goals under conditions of uncertainty. This concept of uncertainty will most certainly apply to both personal and professional life. For that reason, it’s important to understand the keys to successful strategic thinking and workflow management. If you’re going to get things done, you’ve got to know how to maximize this process.


Our minds become magnetized with the dominating thoughts we hold in our minds and these magnets attract to us the forces, the people, the circumstances of life which harmonize with the nature of our dominating thoughts. A positive mental attitude is a must for all who wish to make life pay off on their own terms. Nothing great was ever achieved without a positive mental attitude. To achieve a PMA, keep your mind on the things you want, in all areas of your life, and do not allow your mind to work against you and your goals by developing a habit of thinking about what you don’t want.


Develop a collection of new skills and abilities that can be applied to your personal and professional life goals. In goal achievement, your skills are your tools. Without the right skills, you will only frustrate yourself, waste your time, and spend a lot of time dealing with rudimentary issues caused by the lack of knowledge or lack of skills, as opposed to progressing in your goal.


No matter what energy you put out into the world, you get the same energy back. That’s how energy works. It’s vibrational. Harmonious with one another. Think about it this way. Like attracts like. And considering that all thought is energy in its purest form, whatever energy you push out, you’ll get back.
To date, I have: 
  • Worked with the Napoleon Hill Foundation Leaders, and become a Certified Leader for The Napoleon Hill Foundation.
  • Traveled the globe training some of the world’s finest amateur, junior, professional and corporate athletes and executives. From Super Bowl champs and tennis stars to boardroom billionaires
  • Developed mental and emotional strength in the face of adversity to understand and to teach those who aspire to lead.
  • Unlocked a new meaning to the phrase “living life to the fullest” as I spend my days making a real difference in the world, and in the lives of those who seek my expert guidance. 

Your child is going to learn the art and science of creating a crystal-clear vision and an unflappable purpose. They will know how to set the EXACT goals to get them there.

what is it worth to you?

What’s it worth to you to be able to give your young life traveler the very best tools available to them? To give them the edge they need in this hyper competitive world?

What’s it mean to you to know that they will have the essential high-performance life skills to guide them through adversity and lift them above the dark holes so many others fall into?

Your young athlete is going to learn the EXACT SAME transformational formula others have gladly paid me $25,000 and more for. 


It’s simple really. I have a non-stop burning desire to help others with this life altering information. It literally has taken me from homeless to a world leader in human performance.

Up until now, I could only take on a handful of clients at one time. That hurt my heart and was completely unacceptable to me. Especially when there are so many young people who NEED THIS. 

Your child is the future and hope for this world.
