In 2000, I was asked to work with a high school football team that had not won anything in 25 years. The morale was down, the motivation wasn’t there. They never had a win so they had no idea how to be a champion. The reason I stepped in was personal…My son was on that team and he was the captain and I wanted them to take pride in themselves and be confident as a team. So I would have them come to my house before every practice and do visualization skills to gain their confidence and self esteem.The administration had approached me because they saw a difference in every athlete that was doing the visualization skills. They wanted to teach the students how to gain focus and confidence to win. I felt I had a lot to offer those young athletes. I took the position and the rest is history… I worked with every team at that school softball, volleyball, basketball, wrestling, baseball and even track and field. I’m proud to say for three years they won championships one after another and the students in that school felt empowered and I felt so proud to be part of their success.
