How to compete and have fun too

Aug 30, 2021

What's the point of playing sports if it isn't fun anymore?

Sometimes, I think back about my time playing sports and wish that I would of just had more fun. Don't get me wrong, I had so many good memories playing, but I also was so dang hard on myself that I lost sight of the reason I played in the first place. Fun.

It doesn't have to be competitive OR fun. It CAN be both! You can be competitive and have fun too.

It’s about embracing that failure WILL happen.

It's about knowing you can get through anything.

It's about being goofy and creating positive energy with your teammates.

It's about giving it all you have and if you look dumb, who cares?!

It's about being in the present moment.

It's about celebrating all the hard work.

It's about lifelong bonds with teammates, coaches, and your parents.

When I think about this concept of balancing being a competitor and also having fun while doing that, I think about the Women's College World Series. Every year it comes on, I watch the...

Kick Off for The Confident Athlete is SOON!

Aug 26, 2021

Omg!

I can't believe it's next week!

I am SO excited for the group of girl athletes that are about to begin The Confident Athlete (first official call is on Monday)! I have girls from all over the country: Florida, Tennessee, South Carolina, Louisiana, Oregon, Kansas, Arizona, Indiana, Alabama, and MORE!

What's so cool about having girls from different sports, teams, and locations, is they start to see that they aren't alone. They are all going through the highs and lows together. Something about that community, support, and togetherness that creates confidence!

163 girl athletes have completed The Confident Athlete program and have had so much growth, mindset shifts, and confidence built like...

Taking leadership roles

Having more fun competing

Moving past mistakes easily

Having the hard and scary conversations with coaches

Being brave and asking for help

Consistent results and stats

Crushing goals and dreams

This is just a handful of wins from the girls who have been a...

How to help your daughter step into her confidence!

Jun 27, 2021

How to help your daughter step into her confidence!

Have you ever thought about how your choice of words affect your athlete? The phrases you use to cheer her on? What you say to her after a game?

Have you ever said any of these things (you're not in trouble haha)?

Stop dropping your shoulder!

Don't lose her!

Why would you go for that ball?

Your stats are on fire!

You are so talented!

Even though these seem like pretty harmless phrases, there are more positive, empowering, confident ways to say these kinds of things.

They might sound like this...

Keep your shoulder up and stay tall!

Go right after her!

What are some wins and challenges from the game today?

Your effort and your attitude was on fire!

Your hard work is paying off!

The words, thoughts, and things we tell ourselves are so important because...

What we say and think is what we believe!

So, we want to say, share, and think what we want to happen in games and practices rather than the opposite.

It's a really simple...

When my dad is yelling at me for making a mistake after the game, but I already know and beat myself up over it. 🤡

Jun 20, 2021

When my dad is yelling at me for making a mistake after the game, but I already know and beat myself up over it.

I know you know what this feels like haha! It's all fun and jokes when it's not happening, but when you're in the car feeling like total crap, it totally sucks. It creates a wedge between you and your dad/mom. You're all mad, frustrated, upset, crying, all the things.

There is a solution to this!

It's called boundaries and communicating them with your parent!

Boundaries are set to create space for you to work through your thoughts, learn, and then have an even more productive conversation when BOTH of you are in a better headspace to chat about the game.

You HAVE to set these boundaries, meaning you have to share the boundary with your parent.

It looks like this…

Dad, I appreciate you so much and all the time you put into me playing softball.

After the games, I'm like a crazy person and really need to work through some of my thoughts and emotions before we talk...

Why you are having a hard time believing in yourself...

Jun 13, 2021

Answer: You are letting your old beliefs trick you.

First off, it's not your fault. We all have old beliefs that try to hold us back from our full potential.

Bad News: You are going to have negative thoughts, negative beliefs, doubts, fear, worries, all that bologna.

Good News: You can overcome them!

1 The next time you have an old belief, negative thought, doubt, fear, or worry... I want you to get CURIOUS!

Example:

Belief: I'll never be a forward on my soccer team.

CURIOSITY: Why do I think that? Where is that coming from? When did I start believing this?

2 Journal and answer those curious questions to work through those old beliefs.

Example: Because the other girl playing forward is really good. Because I've been playing midfielder for so long and my coach has never put me in at forward. I don't even know, but I keep thinking it.

Insight here: If that girl can do it, so can you, but it starts with your beliefs (next step). Maybe you haven't even had a conversation with your...

How to have confidence when you're the younger athlete playing up

Jun 01, 2021

I know you are playing up an age group. Playing with the better competition. Pushing yourself to be better.

I also know that surrounding yourself with older and more experienced athletes can be a confidence killer if you're...

not playing as much as you want

keep comparing yourself to your teammates

keep comparing yourself to the athletes on the other teams you play

constantly feeling like you're never going to be good enough

I want you to remember this... your journey as an athlete is long, like a marathon. If you are putting yourself on teams that are out of your comfort zone, it will pay off in the long run.

It is going to feel challenging. It is going to feel sucky. It is going to feel hard.

Keep learning from your challenges.

Keep learning from the suckiness.

Keep learning from the hard times.

You will be so proud and amazed with yourself when you are passing up other girls because you stuck to it. You fought for it!

Focus on being grateful for the challenges, the suckiness,...
