Since we met Meredith nearly 4 months ago, she has transformed, personally and professionally.
As an 8th Grade Science teacher, Head Coach of a High School Girl's Soccer team, and Assistant Coach of the Boy's Soccer Team, Meredith already had a lot on her plate when she heard about the Mindset Coach Certification; her resources were stretched thin.
Before she began the program, Meredith talked to us about her hesitation surrounding the financial investment. As a recent newlywed, she didn't know if she could afford it.
Ultimately, her passion for mindset coaching outweighed her fears, and she made the necessary sacrifices to invest in her future as a mindset coach and entrepreneur, even though it meant compromising the location of their honeymoon.
Meredith had the perfect combination of fear and hope that lit the fire under her to pursue becoming a Certified Mindset Coach and thrive as a student in the Mindset Coach Academy
Meredith is the proud owner of what...

I'm sure we can agree that nothing is quite as impactful as a good TRUE story of a life changed for the better. Today, I want to tell you about Mark Ehlen; he's one of the coaches in the Mindset Coach Academy who will be graduating with his Mindset Coach Certification (along with his class) in just a couple weeks.
Mark's basketball resume is impressive, he is a heavily awarded, 30-year Division I college coach with a reputation for winning (to put it lightly). Due to his noteworthy coaching career, Mark was also inducted into the Hall of Fame; an honor well-deserved. Although he hung up his head coaching whistle a few years ago when he retired, coaching was never just a career for Mark; coaching is deeply engrained in him.
With a lifetime of knowledge about the game of basketball and a deep respect for the mental game, a traditional retirement story arc never quite suited Mark. As he puts it: "I'm...
In my opinion there is nothing more important than pre-competition mindset work. After all, if you can't show what you can do when the lights come on, who really cares about anything else? Game time is show time.
It's also where many athletes get hung up. In fact, I would say that dealing with pre-game nerves is one of the biggest differences between elite athletes and everyone else.
Elite athletes believe that nerves are a PART of peak performance. Everyone else thinks that pre-game nerves are something to be avoided.
So what to do if your athletes are struggling with pre-game nerves? Do these 2 things.
In this webinar, you’ll learn:
Visualization helps program the subconscious brain to be successful. Here are the 5 reasons you should start practicing visualization today.
Visualizing success in your training or racing and you can subconsciously improve your belief in your abilities. We all compete according to how we see ourselves. Change how you see yourself, and your performance changes. Just take a moment and think of 5 times you were at the top of your ‘game’. Write them down. Then take a deep breath, close your eyes and replay all seven of those instances in your mind.
I'll bet you feel more confident in your abilities and more sure of your enormous potential. It’s powerful stuff. Simple but brings out your BEST you.
Controlling emotions is one of the most important aspects to mental training. Staying calm under pressure, reacting appropriately to adversity, getting hyped for competition, ignoring unhelpful emotions in the heat of the moment....
In college, we used to have a saying. Anytime something ‘bad’ happened we’d just say ‘stories’. If we went to the ‘wrong’ party and it totally sucked, if one of our beater cars broke down on the way to target and we had to hitch a ride, if we went on a really bad date. Our response was always ‘stories’.
In other words, when things didn’t go how we wanted them to go or how we thought they should go, at the end of the day, we’d at least get a really good story out of it.
I’ve been thinking about that a lot recently when it comes to decisions. How in our mind we vacillate on decisions, obsessed with making the ‘right’ choice.
But what if there are NO right or wrong decisions, just stories waiting to be created?
I don’t consider myself a very indecisive person on the whole but life…. Oh man the sheer number of decisions we have to make is unbelievable. Add in kids and a house and a...

So many coaches have the passion for mental training and the intention to do it but they still haven't started doing it. Why? Well, here is what they tell us:
A lot of coaches that come to us have already some mental training knowledge; they learned a few tools sometime during their playing or coaching career, but not in any sort of organized way.
Oftentimes, this leads coaches to feeling paralyzed with indecision. They end up doing nothing because they don't know where to start.
If you are one of these coaches, here is my advice: Doing one thing is better than doing no things.
With the Complete Coaches Mental Training Toolbox, we include a highly detailed user success guide that shows you exactly where to start by doing...
I signed up for an 8 week Improv class last week. Not because I wanted to but because I DID NOT WANT TO.
In the Mindset Coach Academy we are Running Towards Failure this week. Which means we are doing something that scares the s*** out of us. Something we are not good at yet. Something where we will stumble and be uncomfortable and fail and grow.
And I DO what I teach. So, I’m right there with my students, running towards failure. I have to be…. No, I GET to be an example of what is possible. So, I went first. And I signed up for an Improv class.
Much like playing, I know speaking and communication often comes down to practice/preparation and then BEING in the moment, trusting yourself, being totally vulnerable and going for it.
I felt that so much on the court as a player and it was the BEST feeling. But it takes guts to really trust yourself and to really leave it all out on the court. And I feel that way about speaking and selling and just...
If I had a nickel for every coach that agrees with the statement 'sports are 90% mental’ and then spends 0% of their time training like it, I’d have a whole lotta nickels.
But 90% of these coaches WANT to do mental training. So what’s the holdup? Two things- one real and one false. Meaning some of the excuse is not having the right tools, strategy or implementation plan and some of it is MINDSET (meaning the coaches mindset... weird, right?)
So we are going to bust these excuses AND give you a free bundle of solutions in our The Mind/Body Exercises: 5 Ways to Implement Mental Training into your Existing Practices.
I don’t have enough time is the mantra most of us use in our lives. It’s on a loop in our heads and it’s our knee jerk reaction to almost ANYTHING new. We often think of time as this limited resource that is always slipping through our fingers instead of something we can creatively alter to meet our...
As a mental training coach (or mindset coach, as we call it), you cannot affect change in others unless you are willing to do the hard work of shifting your mindset first. It’s not just about achieving goals or pushing yourself, it’s about living what you teach. It's about truly believing and investing in the power of your own mindset enough to live in alignment with your values.
If you are a mindset coach, an influence to others, an agent of change, it is your job to be an example of what is possible.
So what exactly happens when you don't practice what you teach? Frankly, it's not a dramatic shift, it's a slow burn that turns your influence stale. Sometimes, it's even undetectable to anyone but yourself, yet it affects how you evolve and how you impact those around you.
Before addressing the simple, super impactful, actionable ways you build a life that helps you live what...
