In an upcoming video, I documented my 13-year-old brother’s life. He plays pop warner football and has been since he was 8-years-old. I initially wanted to show and shadow him while he ran through a number of plays that expressed his position and the need for he position in football; however, it has turned into how he manages and balances his life with football, school, home duties, and social relationships. Since the video will not be posted until after a few weeks, I wanted to share this Ted talk presentation by Dr. Sean Richardson that explains what a lot of athletes must have in order to be driven past the normal or average human barriers and that is mental toughness. The link to the video will be provided below. I will also post more about my research and understanding of both mental toughness and agility, please stay tuned ….
