Hi, Brian Cain here.
Over the past 20+ years, I’ve had the honor of working with many of the world’s top coaches, athletes, and executives, including:
Through my experience, I have taken what makes the world’s top coaches and athletes successful and distilled it down into a group of fundamental, trainable mental performance skills that make up what I call The 10 Pillars of Mental Performance Mastery (MPM).
The 10 Pillars of MPM are a proven system that I have developed over my career that will teach you how to train the mental performance skills needed to consistently achieve long term success.
Through my unique opportunities, I have learned that the common denominator of successful teams, athlete’s, and top performers is that you have to be in control of yourself before you can control your performance and I’m ALL FIRED UP to share my experience so that you can become the elite performer you’re meant to be!
Bottom line: My 1-on-1 MPM Coaching Program is the fastest and most effective way to develop the tools and resources needed to overcome the mental barriers that trip you up so that you can achieve your goals and perform at a high level – even when it’s hard.
When I met Brian Cain I thought that training your mindset was impossible, that you only grew mentally from working hard. What I now realize is that you can train mentally just like you train physically. Brian Cain changed my mindset, sharpened my habits, and helped me be a World Champion for seven years.Georges St-Pierre13x UFC World Champion, UFC Hall of Fame
It’s no coincidence that the first year I worked with Coach Cain full time I had the best year of my career. He gives you drills and a way to work on your mental game that is just like going to the ice to work on your hockey skills. I can’t believe it took so long to learn that you can coach the mental game just like the physical game. I won’t play another season without him in my corner.Connor Murphy2011 National Hockey League 1st Rd. Pick, Chicago Blackhawks

I hooked up with Coach Cain when I was in college at SMU. The training I got from him there I still use in my NFL career to this day.

The 1-on-1 MPM Coaching Program is built on the foundation of a deep professional coaching relationship, and we go above and beyond to make sure you feel supported every step of the way.
After your initial 15-minute free consultation, you will be matched up with a coach that is equipped to provide the best results based on your goals, preferences, and profession. Whether you end up being paired directly with me (always the initial plan) or one the Certified MPM Coaches in my network (if after discussion with you we both feel that they are a better fit), you can rest assured that you will receive world-class coaching from an experienced professional.
Through a combination of consistent phone, email, text, and FaceTime, your coach will follow up with you on a weekly and often daily basis to provide continued support and instruction, reflect on your personal goals, and evaluate your progress.
Each training session will build off of the previous one, serving as the foundation of your mental performance training program. In between each coaching session, you will have an actionable plan to implement to completely remove the guesswork and provide a clear, concise roadmap that will guide you toward mental performance mastery.
Everything we do is based around the 10 Pillars of Mental Performance Mastery—a system for achieving that winning edge that has been called the “missing link” in optimal performance. These 10 trainable mental performance skills are what you need to close the gap from where you are to where you want to be—and we are going to help you master each one!
PILLAR #1 – Elite Mindset
Without the right mindset, you will continue to struggle with doubt, thinking you “just don’t have the mental toughness” needed to reach your full potential and get the results you’ve been working for but not yet achieving. As you develop an elite mindset, you will start to see setbacks — things you used to think of as “failure” — as an opportunity for growth, and that makes a HUGE difference. As you learn to grow and train your mindset, you will finally be able to blast through mental barriers that have held you back and realize your true potential.
PILLAR #2 – Motivation and Commitment
No one is able to reach big goals or max out their potential without high levels of motivation and commitment — this is something we know. When adversity comes knocking — as it always does — the level of motivation and commitment one has will largely determine whether they push through and stick with it, or whether they give up. By developing the SKILL of motivation and commitment, you can develop the grit needed to stick with it even when things get hard and you don’t feel like it.
PILLAR #3 – Focus and Awareness
Distractions, negative self-talk, and letting mistakes get to you are a sure way to derail performance. People who succeed don’t do so because they somehow evade trials and challenges. They succeed because they develop a SKILLSET that allows them to overcome the challenges and trials they face — and focus and awareness is a crucial component of helping you do that. With practice, you CAN display a highly trained level of present moment focus and self-awareness so you can block out distractions, navigate adversity, and perform consistently at your best and shine your brightest when it means the most.
PILLAR #4 – Self-Control and Discipline
Elite performance requires hard work and dedication. There’s no way around that. Similarly, the pressures of competition are demanding — mentally, physically, and emotionally. When you begin to intentionally and consistently train self-control and discipline, you will notice that you are better able to:
PILLAR #5 – Process Over Outcome
One of the biggest battles you face is this: finding the energy and initiative to do the day-to-day, mundane tasks necessary to reach your goals, even when you don’t feel like it. By developing the process over outcome skillset, you can redirect focus to what is within YOUR inner locus of control — and drive the actions needed to achieve the desired outcome. This allows you to develop an appreciation of focusing on what you can control, letting go of what you can’t, and aiming for daily improvement.
PILLAR #6- Meditation and Mental Imagery
Whether we’re aware of it — or not — the mental images we create and carry around (both positive and negative) have a direct impact on physical and mental performance. When you begin to train the skill set of mental imagery and meditation, you will notice that you are better able to stay calm under pressure and focus on the present task, rather than getting caught up in the past or future. You will also increase your confidence through and advanced form of preparation, that you competition doesn’t even know exists.
PILLAR #7 – Routines & Habits of Excellence
After nearly two decades of working with the world’s top executives, teams, coaches and athletes, I can conservatively say that a good 50% of elite performance and goal achievement happens OUTSIDE of work out techniques, fundamentals, or any other physical element. Consistently performing at a high level requires the ability to modify behavior and develop the structure needed to execute the plan. High-performers know the power of routine — they know how to build and break habits, and they have a certain amount of structure guiding what they do each day. Those who fly by the seat of their pants or let their feelings dictate what they will do and don’t do are destined to fall short of their potential.
PILLAR #8 – Time Management & Organization
The more automated and organized one’s day is, the more self-discipline, energy, and focus there is to direct toward the most important things. There is a direct correlation between one’s time management and their ability to exhibit more willpower and show up for a competition or workout and be at their best. Every decision made each day is like a “withdrawal” from your bank account. And on the flip side, every decision put on automation, requiring minimal mental thought or energy is like a deposit. Effective time management preserves energy and focus for the things that REALLY matter.
PILLAR #9 – Leadership
Elite performance is a team effort. In order to help you reach your full potential, you have to work on becoming a more effective leader. Learning to become a better leader creates the opportunity to take your success — and the success of those around you — to greater heights than ever before. Many people and teams will fall short because their leadership isn’t strong enough to manage all of the demands that come with higher levels of performance.
PILLAR #10 – The Right Culture
After working with the world’s top performers — in every sport and at nearly every level — I noticed something: The best of the best do things differently that the rest of the pack. There is a championship culture within elite performing individuals and teams that dictates how they treat themselves and others, how they respond to adversity, and their ability to consistently perform at a high level. As an athlete, it’s your job to establish the right culture personally and work to establish this collectively with your team(s).
The best coaches have both the experience and intuition to understand what the mental and physical limits of their clients are.
In the same way, my certified mental performance coaches and I have the skills, talent, and experience to quickly determine exactly where you’re at in your professional and personal journey and develop a systematic program to prepare you emotionally, mentally, tactically and technically for each and every challenge on your list.
During the initial free consultation, we will discuss your goals, needs, and finances to determine which coaching package is the best fit for you. I understand there are budgets people need to work with. If you are willing to do the work it takes to be great, I want to help you to achieve your goals.
