howdy2222 ,

Amazing!!!!

These podcasts have helped me out a lot as an athlete. I have been in a slump recently and have been struggling with how to maintain my mental toughness in order to persevere and be successful. Listening I have learned how to trust myself and control my way of thinking. Dr Rob has a way of putting things into perspective and opening up questions about yourself. I have taken a lot of what he has said and implemented it into my daily life.
