We don’t quit, we don’t cower, we don’t run. We endure and we conquer. – Kobe Bryant.
I see myself as a student. Trying to learn everything. – Giannis Antetokounmpo
These basketball giants know something. They know that their will to be great and their determination to be great was as much about their mind as it was their body-type, their coaches, or their teammates. There is and was something within them that gave them the strength to grow well beyond their peers on the basketball court.
Student-athletes: Are you growing as much as you want on and off of the court? Are you finding it hard to remain excited and engaged in the game that you once loved? Do you find yourself on a roller-coaster of emotion while you are on the court during games or practices?
Parents: Do you find yourself walking on eggshells when you are around your student-athlete and the topic of athletics come up? Do you ever wonder if your student-athlete’s participation is “worth it?” Do you ever think, “This is crazy!” and are worried that their experience is hurting them?
People of all walks of life seek professional coaching when they are in a moderately healthy place in life, yet have a desire to move from where they are toward some place they expect will be better for them. As an athletic mental strength coach, I typically coach two types of student-athletes. Serious athletes that want to raise their game to another level and be mentally strong and healthy, and serious athletes who are finding their athletic performance hindered by various forms of performance anxiety and mental distress.
Athletic Mental Strength Coaching is a proactive intervention in self-development that is specifically designed to promote healthy balance, strength mindset and lofty desired outcomes on and off the court or field of play. Athletic Mental Strength Coaching is focused on the present to achieve what you want in the future, and it is designed to help people who are functioning well enough to move to the next level.
