What to do if a coach intimidates or scares you

Have you ever had a coach, boss, or parent who always talked shit to you, overreacted over your mistakes or made you feel small every time you messed up? I think we all have dealt with this at some time of our lives. However, when we allow them to get to us, and we get scared and overly cautious, that’s when things begin to fall apart. We have to plan for how to handle our emotions and overcome. In this episode, I show you how.

No more excuses. This is a 2.5 hour, 16 step process for how to set up a master plan for your 2018 goals.

But for those obsessed with doing what it takes to get everything that you want from your sport and life, this is your solution. People thought I was crazy for laying this shit out for you in the way that I did, but I’m tired of seeing people struggle with the excuse of not knowing how and not having the money.

How to be supremely confident on gameday: Killer Instinct Series Part 1

Most high performers fold under the lights, they get overwhelmed with anxiety and worry when the results matter most, and it affects not just them but their teammates, their employees, their customers, and everyone involved. If you want to dominate under pressure, that means you’ll have to go against your natural instincts, which is to run from that pressure. You have to teach yourself to be poised….in this episode I give you an inside look into my live coaching program where I break down the mindset standard that high performers must have and how to create your legitimate recipe for maximum confidence.
