"...Please accept my appreciation and gratitude for your Achievement By
Design coaching sessions. I have learned a great deal about myself and feel
I have a much better understanding of the dynamics and structure of human
...As a professional athlete, I believe that your skills and insights on
motivation and performance enhancement are very appropriate for athletes at
all levels. Your skills and techniques have real benefit to professional
players who need to go to the next level of their mental game.
...I feel the greatest contribution your work could make would be in the
area of Youth Sports. Teaching young players at an early age what you have
taught me, will definitely help prepare them to deal with the ‘highs and
lows’ that occur in all levels of sports careers.
...It is a pleasure working with and learning from you. To that end, I would
be happy to recommend you or be a reference for you should the opportunity
arise. Again, thanks for helping take me from Silver to Gold!"
"...On behalf of everyone at UK International Soccer Camps we would to take
this opportunity to thank you for your time presenting the seminar, "Mental
Game Development Coaches Certification" to our staff.
We considered various organizations before committing to your
company Achievement By Design and were delighted with the results. Our staff
still talks about how rewarding the information was that they received, and
all of them have used the materials at some level with the players they

“…If properly implemented, Ted’s performance enhancement technologies
will make a major contribution to youth sports programs. The information is
powerful and enlightening. I have successfully used some of these techniques
in my career as a youth sports parent, coach, and private pitching
instructor. Ted’s ability to teach these performance enhancing techniques is
second to none. Every coach, parent, and league administrator who has the
opportunity to learn these skills, and the personal commitment to use the
techniques, will walk away a better person. Get ready to be blown away and
then go out and make the world a better place.”

"...Please accept out appreciation and gratitude for your presentation to
the CBRC crews, families and friends. Your insights on how to achieve high
performance was very well received and pertinent for individual and team
applications. Through your anecdotes, examples, and exercises, you helped us
to see the difference between a highly successful team and a struggling
team. I believe the rowers learned and can apply your skill to move from
being a group to being a team and then to becoming a high performance team.
Thank you so much!"

"...Thanks so much for your help with our soccer team. The results of your
'mental game' skills training was better than we could have hoped for. The
girls reported back that your exercises for 'managing the fears' really
helped them to stay focused on the game. We believe that your work with us
was a major factor in our winning the biggest game of the season. We
definitely want to use you more! If we can do that well with just one
session with you, imagine the possibilities!"
Thank-you so much for the seminar - Everyone thought it was great.
I know some great communication was established and we all look forward to a
closer more positive relationship. I thought your ideas were fabulous and
easy to understand. Norm emailed me this morning thanking me for finding
you!!! Many of the parents would love to have a class so if you are still
willing let me know.
Like you suggested, Norm practiced with the girls on Saturday --
what they were going to do if they got a goal down etc. and it worked like a
charm!!! We won 3 to 2!!!!!! This is a North Kitsap team that has beat us
twice before this season. The girls were so pumped and it just cracked me up
because I heard both Layne and Vanessa yell "EPIC" several times during the
course of the game!
Several parents game up to me and said - wow, that must have been a
great seminar! You can see from this email from one of the parents that even
the girls gave you credit. I even heard that one of the Dad's wants to talk
to you about doing a seminar for his employees as a result of his daughter's
Thank you again - you are a miracle worker!!

"...After yesterday's game Sonnie made a comment I thought I'd pass on. She
credited the team's attitude and ability to come back in the final two
minutes of the game to their response to the Ted Buffington seminar you
arranged. Having watched this team closely from the start I would have to
agree with her. You picked just the thing that has been the missing
ingredient so far. And, I think we'll see more games come out of their new
found fire done to perfection."
