Helping your daughter trust herself

Apr 11, 2022

Does your daughter trust herself? 

👉 In those pressure moments where she has the opportunity to get the hit, make the shot, help her team win…

👉 When all eyes are on her…

👉 To believe she is prepared and ready for game day…

A lot of the girls that I mentor start to lose trust in themselves or doubt themselves because they are so focused on what other people will think if they fail, if they don’t live up to their potential.

One of the #1 struggles that girl athletes are telling me is not wanting to let other people down. Their coaches, teammates, you! 

So, here’s how you can help her trust herself!

#1 - Reminding her over and over again that her opinion of herself is the one that matters the most! 

When I was playing softball growing up, I had coaches telling me I wouldn’t be able to be a great catcher at the Division 1 level. And then, I was the 4 year starting catcher at Northwestern University… Thank goodness, I didn’t 100% believe those coaches and kept catching, doing my thing. 

#2 - Challenge her to think about the things that make her so great…

Examples: 

⏩ I like who I am because…

⏩ I really admire myself for…

⏩ I feel good about my…

Trusting to believe our opinion about ourselves takes practice! Like a skill she practices at her sports practices (throwing, shooting, dribbling, passing, etc.).

We are working and talking about how to trust in weekly Mindset Lessons this week! If you want her to start practicing this skill and learning how to trust herself, schedule her for this week’s lesson!
