Success always starts with failure – however for some, failure is a speed bump while for others it’s a road block. Do you know the right way to react to falure?

In this episode we meet Justin Su’a (@justinsua), Mental Skills Coordinator for the Boston Red Sox. Justin studied Sport and Performance Psychology at the University of Utah and has been developing a new breed of athlete ever since. Every day, Justin helps athletes bridge the gap between physical strength and mental strength; teaching them how to overcome adversity, and smile in the face of failure. And now he’s here to do the same for you.

As an athlete, we face a new set of challenges every day. The difference is how we react and adapt to these challenges that will separate us from the pack. If you’ve been struggling to take your game to the next level then maybe the answer isn’t more physical training, but instead mental training. When you reach an elite level, 90% is mental and 10% is physical. You are competing against yourself, not against other athletes. With that being said, it’s time to let the master do his work, enjoy.
