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 the best was as much about their minds as it was their body-type, their coaches, or their teammates. Something within them has given 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 field or the court? Are you finding it hard to remain excited and engaged in the game you once loved? Do you find yourself on a roller-coaster of emotion during games or practices?
Parents: Do you find yourself walking on eggshells when discussing sports with your student-athlete? Do you ever wonder if his or her participation is worth it? Do you ever think, “This is crazy!” and worry 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 who 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 stress, 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.
