Hinging Moments On Mental Toughness - EP10 w/Dr. Rob Bell

We've all been there- a tragic moment, a failure so utter it seems to change us completely. Or perhaps it's the conversation, so innocuous at the time, that in hindsight was pivotal to the direction of our lives. How do we know when a moment is about to change our lives, and how can recognizing those moments shape our mental landscape? On the other hand, how do we keep cool under pressure when we're out on the court, the field, the stage? Dr. Rob Bell, a sports psychology coach and author of six books including 2020's PUKE & RALLY: It's not about the Setback, It's about the Comeback, speaks to us about the importance of these "Hinge Moments", and shares tips and stories for maintaining mental toughness as an athlete.
