I was the best player on my high school basketball team. As a freshman.
And it sucked.
It sucked so bad that I started playing bad to try to not stick out so much.
That didn’t work either.
See that’s the thing with sticking out. You either stick out and that’s hard. Or you play small and that is WAAYYY worse.
Does my story sound familiar? If you are an ambitious, motivated person, an athlete-minded badass who puts 110% into everything you do, chances are, you’ve had to make a similar choice: Stand out and risk being ostracized OR make yourself smaller to make others around you feel comfortable.
Making that choice sucks. You shouldn’t HAVE to make that choice.
Here’s the good news and the bad news (I'll start with the bad news)
The bad news is that we can’t always control who we are around, and we definitely can’t control other people. There will be people that inhibit your...
What if you could create a business that helps people and makes money?
That gives value to others while getting paid what you’re worth; and to do all of it in a way that feels honest and empowering? Do you even believe it’s possible?
And I know that because I did it (I do it) every day.
Now, before you can say, “Well, Lindsey’s an extrovert” or “She must just really like selling” or “She has a business that sells itself”, let’s take a little walk down memory lane.
Trust me, this whole selling thing does not come naturally to me, and I’ve ‘failed’ more times than I can count. For years, I cold called college...
If you are here, you are probably either already practicing mental training with your team OR you fall into one of the two categories:
If you have a healthy appreciation of mental training, you may have even tossed around the idea of bringing Positive Performance (or another mental training expert) to your campus to work with your team.
While bringing another coach in to train your athletes has its obvious benefits, I want to propose another option, one that you may not have thought about before: Why don’t YOU become the mindset coach for your team?
Before diving into these benefits, I want to first address the coaches here who...

When I was in my mid 20s, I became really interested in doing mindset work. My ongoing research and conversations with friends and colleagues ultimately led me to meeting Dr. James Hollingsworth, a trained hypnotist, and the first person to ever introduce me to the immense impact of hypnotism and guided visualization. One thing Dr. Hollingsworth taught me is that the best way to learn about and understand hypnotism is by experiencing it firsthand.
I remember the first time I was hypnotized so clearly; it sticks out in my mind. I remember what the room looked like, the overwhelming feelings that surfaced, and the ultimate relief. Truthfully, the first time I was hypnotized, I started crying. I was so present. I remember being blown away by my own mind. I had years of mental training behind me, I was no stranger to the power of the mind, and yet I was still surprised. It was different. I couldn’t believe I was able to have such an extremely powerful experience just by tapping...
