Convincing Your Youth Athlete They Need Mental Toughness Training

I have been following you for a little while now and I have to say you have great stuff! I'm really impressed with the resources you are offering. As a former Olympic medalist
in rowing I understand the importance of the mental component of competition and training.

I'm wondering if you can help me, help you, make $97? I'd love to buy your program for my son but so far he has said he's not really interested.

A little background: he's a big 15 year old basketball player that is really good but could be so much better. #1 issue is assertiveness. It's getting better and when he "turns
it on" he dominates. Many times he shrinks from the moment, plays tentative, and generally does not live up to what he displays in practice. I could be wrong, but that seems to
be mental thing, not physical. I showed him the video you have where you talk about the basketball player and perfectionism and I think it made sense to him. I have had him
speak with a lady I know that does mental training (another Olympian) and she gave him some exercises that he said helped. His coach understands and has been giving him some
ideas on preparing mentally.
