Burnout is YOUR CHOICE! Why 77% of athlete’s burnout by age 14 and how THEY can fix it

Click here to LISTEN to the 3 minute audio message: Burnout is YOUR CHOICE! 77% of athletes quit their sport by the age of 14 and it's said that the reason is because of: Parents and Coaches! Now, you might be sitting here listening to this thinking to yourself, "Yeah, that's probably true because I know some crazy sports parents or I know some crazy sports coaches." But I want to give you guys something different today that I believe is equally as important for why an athlete burns out from their sport. And it's not the parents' or the coaches' fault, at least not 100%. See, what I believe is that burnout is a choice. It's a choice that you make when you don't acknowledge how you're feeling

#1 Secret to Staying "In the Zone"...

I love MO. When he visits, life is good. In fact, life is so good it feels like everything I touch becomes gold. MO only comes around every once in a while. He doesn’t just grace me with his presence automatically. I have to work for it. But the cool thing is, I know exactly what I need to do in order to attract him. The Big “MO” is my friend, MOmentum.
