As a former professional athlete I was always in search of “the zone.” The zone and that feeling was, and is, the peak of all performance that all athletes strive for. But often there is something missing, and it’s that something that is revealed on my podcast. I share my experiences as an athlete and life coach. You’ll discover what’s working, how to get there and how to apply these tips to your life. Join me on this journey and be the Genuine Athlete you were born to be.

Michael Huber | "Hey kid, you are more than just an athlete!"
Dear athlete parents: If you need to listen to any podcast, DO LISTEN TO THIS ONE!!!
Because we covered several tabu themes in youth sport and explained what the hell is going on between the ears of athletes' parents.
How the business industry has infiltrated and is abusing the love for sport in youths.
STOP wondering what you are doing wrong; START LISTENING to your own conscious heart mind connection and listen to your kids more than you talk to them. Dear parents, You can do this. You know what is the right thing to do and to allow your kid to enjoy their childhood and still be a good athlete.
But first, build a strong character mentally and to give yourself first and then to your youngster the tools to confront the adversities of losing and having emotional breakdowns. Parents need to practice what they preach, a must one. Otherwise your kid is going to pressure and outgrow you before you know it.
And you young athlete, YOU are more than just an athlete. Your life does not depend on winning or losing, or on your athlete skills more than it does depend on your emotional, mental and well being skills and how you react to winning or losing. Focus on those and you will be more than successful in anything you dive into. Because results cannot be forced or controlled, as they are just a consequence of the WHOLESOME effort you put into.
Control what you can control, yourself and your reactions.
And ABOVE ALL: accept sport psychology into your life NOW!
