  1. Finding Joy on the Journey by statting up all the new you are trying. If something is not in the 8, 9, or 10 range, honor that and try something else to see what your stat is. The Stats Tool is a great way to measure how much you enjoy an activity and recognize whether or not you want to continue doing it.

  2. How 2 Change and share it with the people in your life. Live It to Give It – share your commitments with those around you so they can be on the journey with you. 

  3. Criticism 2 COMPASS10N. Choose to be a CHAMP10N and step into being the new change that you want to be, rather than going against yourself.

  1. Seasons Tool. We do not play our sport 12 months year round – breaking our time up into “Seasons” gives us the ability to celebrate the short term wins and figure what works and what doesn’t. It also helps us to make commitments throughout our seasons and reach our goals.

  2. Anchor in purpose. Find your why. What commitments to you have and why do you stick to them? Find what you can control and be for yourself and others.

  3. Challenge your brain to go into forward focus. What do you know and where do you want to go with that? It’s not about a feeling – it’s about the process of getting to the commitment that you honored. Push through your fear rather than completely avoiding it.



  1. Anchor in truth to enter into love. When you honor your truth that you are feeling, you will be able to accept it and then find a way to change your feelings to a place of love.

  2. Faith is unseen. This is something that is not tangible, which can be hard for competitively great athletes who are used to measurable statistics and winning. Inside competitive greatness, there is an unseen component – the faith component – which is important to have to be able to create positive self talk and move into the love component.

  3. Write down the things that you are grateful for. Gratitude is a great winning strategy to reenergize yourself and recognize what’s in front of you. Once you have things written down, you can take a look at them whenever you want.

  1. VIS10N. Change is hard – it is important to remember that we cannot change everything we want all at once. Find a starting point where you can have concrete action and anchor in new thinking to create forward momentum.

  2. Honor diversity. Be open and curious to bridge the gap between wanting to go for change and the nervousness of trusting something unfamiliar. Have your questions ready and know what you are looking for when building a CHAMP10N culture. 

  3. COMMUNICAT10N. Understand what your athletes and team members need to feel supported and have those conversations early and often.
