1.    Remember how powerful your mind and thoughts are. Use techniques such as meditation and visualization.

2.    Cry for five minutes then get over it. Acknowledge painful emotions and then move on to the next thing.


1.    Don’t lose sight of you and cling to your authenticity.

2.    In athletics and in life, remember that your 100 percent today might only be a 7 and that’s okay. Consistency is more important than perfection.
