Make Your Mess Your Message

I think the reason so many kids struggle with identity and through adversity is because these two truths have not yet sunk it… Your mess becomes your message Your are more than an athlete Eight years ago I started working with a lacrosse player named Lara. She went on to play at a major D1 school. In early 2018 she learned her career was going to be cut short. She was forced to medically retired due to a long-term injury that finally took its toll on her. She was devastated. Lost. Confused and lacking clarity of purpose and direction. She had incredible, supportive parents, however she was still shook up and in need of guidance. ​ Why? Despite parents who told her otherwise, her identity HAD

Riley's Why

Hi, my name is Riley Johnson, I am a junior at Urbana High School and soon to be a Racer, as I am committed to play D1 soccer at Murray State in Kentucky.

My Kid's Self-beliefs Are Holding Them Back

A teacher named Judy decided to accept a position at a new middle school. Upon arriving, the administration assigned her a classroom of about 20 children. All semester, she taught them VERY challenging material. At the end of the semester the children were given their exam. Her children absolutely crushed the test. Their scores ended up being the highest in the entire school. The administration, SHOCKED and confused, came to Judy the day after scores came out... “How on earth did you get those students to perform so well! As you know, these were the least intelligent kids in the whole school. They scored lower on the test from last semester than anyone else. They’ve been in the directed clas

Meet Greg, The 19 Year Old LEADER

There are some kids out there who truly do want to step out and LEAD. Like Greg. They feel it on the inside, they want to be different. Greg, in my opinion, is the perfect example of a high school kid who went against the grain, tapped into his true capacities, and became THE athlete, student, friend, and family member he was SUPPOSED to, not the one that society and followers influenced him to be. That objective is hard to obtain alone... Greg is in the process of overcoming that Need for Acceptance that holds so many of our young people back from becoming leaders. How? 3 years ago him and I started meeting WEEKLY 1 on 1 for some high-performance mentoring sessions. At the time, Greg strugg

This Young Lady Was Crushed...

Sarah is a young lady I work with. She just got home from her freshman year of college, she was crushed… Here is what happened: 1st: A knee injury in the fall that set her back about 8 weeks. NOT GOOD when you are on a scholarship and the coach EXPECTS you to produce results on the field. 2nd: She was the victim of a form of some not-so-nice senior “bullying” that took place. 3rd: she was called into the coaches office, where he proceeded to tell her the following: “You are not as hard of a worker as I thought you were.” “Maybe you are not cut out for college lacrosse.” I understand that coach THOUGHT this way the way to motivate her, but it is not. Not even close. Those words penetrated her

The BIG 3: Confident, Courageous, Successful

PARENT GOAL #1: NOTICEABLY MORE CONFIDENT To me, this means a kid does not question themselves as much as they used to. It means that they have a better understanding of who they are and why their contribution to sports, the team, or in life actually matters. To know your kid is making progress with their confidence I believe you would begin seeing them respond to adversity and circumstances that are outside of their control, BETTER than they used to. Coach doesn't play them, they experience an injury, girlfriend or boyfriend dumps them, and it does not shake them QUITE as bad as it used to. More confident would mean you see them quickly turning to focus on what they can control opposed to s
