Since I was little I always found inspiration in song lyrics, my dad's pep talks, and the endless quotes I would read online. My motivation would sky rocket after analyzing and predicting what the intended message was. But the motivation was like the new batteries you just put in that Christmas ornament that never actually gets turned on...
I have always identified as an athlete, but I have never quite felt confident enough to identify as a great athlete. The reason being, well, I don't believe I ever performed to my highest potential. There was too much noise holding me back. From the feeling of "I need to be perfect", to the fear of repercussion if I ever failed or disappointed my parents or coaches. It haunted me, and unfortunately those thoughts also controlled me.
Though nobody would have ever known, I spent the last 2 years of my athletic college career salvaging all the strength I had to keep playing. I was miserable! I had given everybody/everything around me all my power, and had lost control of who I was and why I was playing. I had a giant "HELP" sign on my forehead, looking for every excuse in the book to determine my fate as an athlete.
Talk about the perfect contestant for a mindset coach, RIGHT?!
I WISH! I only wish I had a mindset coach that could teach me how to reconstruct my thoughts, how to reset my mind when it would turn for the worse, and help me thrive in adversity instead of crumble.
Thats right, I crumbled, and over the last 5 years I have picked up the pieces, and I am better than ever! I have seen myself in the college athletes I coached, and mentored them through the struggles. I have studied the mindset of performers, I earned my certification as a mindset conditioning coach. And you know what, I owe it all to the struggle I faced as a performing athlete. I am forever grateful for my journey and I absolutely can not wait to help you along in yours!
