Self-confidence: how do you get it and how do you keep it? It is the mark of a champion. That secret ingredient that all great athletes seem to possess, regardless of what level they compete at. Self-confidence is that intangible factor that keeps an athlete working hard regardless of how many times he/she may fail or how many obstacles get thrown in his/her path. Self-confidence can give an average athlete the courage and focus to defeat a stronger opponent. Self-confidence can motivate you to attempt and accomplish the impossible. Likewise, lacking self-confidence, an athlete will consistently perform way below their potential. Low self-confidence can kill an athlete's enjoyment of the sport and turn him/her into a dropout statistic. Self-confidence: how do you get it and how do you keep it? I will tell you!
Emotional Eating happens when we look to food for comfort when we are stressed or upset. Oftentimes overeating is a response to emotions such as sadness or loneliness. Lots of us do it. The problem is that it leads to weight gain and poor health, which leads to more stress, which leads to more emotional eating. It's a vicious cycle. If losing weight were simply a matter of willpower, it would be a lot easier to do it. To lose weight and keep it off, most of us need to develop different ways of dealing with the gnarly emotions that triggering overeating. From my best selling Emotional Eating eBook will explore the 6 steps that helps make change possible.

Dr. Michelle Cleere Dr. Michelle's passion is unlocking the power of the mind so that elite performers can play better and happier. She coaches athletes, musicians, academicians, business leaders and other people who need to perform consistently at a high level. Performance Psychology Ph.D. Dr. Michelle holds a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology and a M.A. in Sports Psychology. She serves on the faculty of JFK University. Her research focuses on how the mind can be trained to improve performance and endurance. Her competitive spirit as a college basketball player and amateur triathlete inspired her to explore sports psychology to improve her own performance. Her big a-ha moment came in 1997 when coaching a team of amateur triathletes, most of whom were beginners. Simple mental skill training, perspective shifts and emotional support yielded almost magical results across the team. People who hated running learned to power up hills with mantras. People who were terrified of swimming in open water overcame their fear with visualizations. Everyone completed their race-including the woman who showed up to the first practice with a snorkel mask and fins-and most kept competing. Since then, Dr. Michelle has helped hundreds of athletes who compete in sports that require a high degree of mental endurance and toughness such as tennis, golf, triathlon, marathon, cycling and beach volleyball. She has also worked with concert musicians, academics competing for tenure and business executives. Collaborations and Publications Dr. Michelle collaborates with Dr. Oz, the National Academy of Sports Medicine and Sharecare. She writes about elite performance and the mind-body connection for Triathlete Magazine, USA Triathlon, United States Professional Tennis Association, Professional Tennis Registry. She has authored two books: Shifting Gears: How Women Triathletes Balance Life with Sport and The Experience of Participating in a Triathlon.
