There is a big difference between good athletes, and CHAMPIONS.

Aside from your basic abilities in speed, strength, control, and whatever else is required to master in your particular sport, what's going to set you apart and truly excel is in whether you have developed MENTAL TOUGHNESS.

Even the fastest, strongest, and most skilled athletes will underachieve if they concentrate on the wrong things, are unable to quickly let go of mistakes or bad breaks, lack self-confidence or motivation, or can't handle the pressure of competition. Mental toughness is a way of training your mind right alongside your body, so that you can focus easily, are resilient to failure and set-backs, and know how to address fears, tough opponents, nervousness, slumps, and any other obstacles that come your way.
