We want to be confident, relaxed, focused, and instinctive when we are competing, but HOW?! 😬🤯🤷‍♀️

There were so many times my coaches or parents were like, "Paige, just be confident out there!" And all I could think was... okay, that's great, I wish I felt like that, but I DON'T!

Don't you worry, girl. I'm going to give you some how to's! 👏

It is all about your mental preparation.

Think about it like your practices, lessons, extra work all week. You are practicing your skills, building strength, and working on your conditioning.

Mental preparation is just mental conditioning. Working on your mindset!
