Mistakes are a part of your success journey. Did you know that you’re more likely to succeed when you make mistakes than when you don’t? You need to change your mindset and see failure as part of your success process by mastering your mental game either as an athlete or in any other profession you’re in. 

In this episode of Girls Gone Healthy, I have Bryn, a mental skills coach who’s been helping high school, college, and professional athletes to master their mental game over the last several years. She’s a former divisional athlete in the tracking field and high school basketball player who has first-hand experience in knowing what being on and off your mental game can cost you.
