After your injury, you've been cleared to go back to your sport. You are training, competing, and still struggling. Maybe you don't feel like you are performing your best. Your confidence is down.

"I'm not good enough." I hear this all the time and I have struggled with self doubt too. It happens to the best of us. Self doubt creeps in your mind and can take you into a tough place to pull yourself out of and perform your best. Athletes beat themselves up over their lack of being not good enough. Reframe and move your thoughts into new energy and see what happens. Connect with me if you want to learn more.
