Nurturing a Fighting Mentality-books?

Hey UG....I competed for the first time in years this past weekend, and while physically I felt very prepared, mentally I was feeling weak and had to really get inside my own head to have any confidence at all.

I know that a fighters mentality can't be COMPLETELY "learned" and that for the most part you either have it or you don't. But, I do believe that for most people who actively participate in combat sports that a fighting mentality can lay dormant until a fighter realizes the tools necessary to really bring it out.

Consistent competing is important in building that confidence also, but what books have you guys read that go along this route? I am a cerebral type of athlete and I think I would benefit from reading a few books along this line.
