What You’ll Hear in Today’s 15-Minute Huddle:

  • Today’s questions: How are Mindset and Motivation different?


  • To help answer the questions, I’m joined by Andrew Simpson, founder of Player’s Fitness and Performance and a mentor to young athletes. We discuss how mindset and motivation affect student athletes.
  • Why motivation doesn’t last and how we are constantly seeking it.


  • How we as parents can help bridge the gap between motivational changes and mindset changes.


  • The importance of mentors and coaches in your children’s lives who share your values.


  • What a self-limiting belief is and how to rephrase them into questions to help your student athlete change their perception of those beliefs.
