Ah, Mental Toughness, where do I begin. Well for starters, not many athletes work on it. The ones that do, I believe are easily identified. They are the ones who hit the big shots, hit the game winning home run, break a key tackle for that extra yard or simply do what is necessary for their teams to win. They oveflow with emotion and joy with their teammates and the next play, you are not able to tell if they are winning or losing. They do not bring the previous emotion into the next play. If you are this kind of athlete, you are a rare breed. Then you have the other side of the spectrum. They are the ones who turn the ball over in the closing seconds, make an error in the ninth inning or miss a coverage assignment and get beat for a touchdown. How do they handle it? They get annoyed with themselves, blame everyone from the refs to their teammtes and will never learn from their mistakes.  Then you have the player who is learning how to develop mental toughness. They learn from their mistake and then go into the next play with the confidence that if they get another opportunity, they will come through. Mental Toughness is looked at as unique. I believe it is  although it should not be. All athletes need to develop this trait to succeed in any aspect of life. To help our athletes and the youth in general, I have created a FREE Conference Call where you can call in from the comfort of your own home and listen in on a 30 minute call discussing various topics ranging from Self Esteem  to Dealing with Adversity. If you are a serious athlete and want to reach beyond where you thought you could go, this call is a MUST!!!!! You have to do things that other people don't want to and will not do in order to reach your full potential.

In addition to the conference call, I am available for 1 on 1 sessions and for group sessions as well. In my heart and soul, I believe that this is the most important aspect of training to anyone, not just athletes, striving to become successful. It is hard work and at times it seems like it is not working. I can promise you that if you stick with it, you will be amazed at the way you start to look at pressure. You will not understand why people allow their minds to let them fail. You control your mind, you control your life.

Please take your mental toughness training just as serious as you take your physical conditioning. The greatest minds in the world are all in print and now, all online. Learn what they do and how they do things and set yourself apart from the average people who are just trying to make the team. Get up every day and know you are the best you can be. Don't wish it were easier, wish you were better; and don't wish, demand from yourself a non-negotiable attitude of WHATEVER IT TAKES.

If you do these things I am suggesting, you will be known as:
