This month's "Focused" video features insights from Lisa Mitzel's new book, Focused and Inspired: Keeping Our Athletes Safe in a Win-at-All-Costs World.
To build self-esteem and keep athletes safe, teach them how their body responds to nervousness and fear. When you teach athletes the physical signs and to be 'emotionally aware,' they will feel more intelligent, better able to manage their emotions, and feel more in control. This absolutely creates confidence and ease under pressure.
For coaches, parents, and athletes to take steps to enhance the mental and emotional journey and coach-athlete relationship, read my books Focused and On Fire: The Athlete's Guide to Mental Training & Kicking Butt and Focused and Inspired: Keeping Our Athletes Safe in a Win-at-All-Costs World.
