FEARLESS

“The higher the self-esteem the lesser you focus on your fears of failure”

Over the past 40 years I’ve been a performance sports coach in various sports. I have been involved in coaching several players to achieve very high, even number 1 ranking on the ATP Tennis tour in doubles.

I played tennis on the ATP tour, ranked 270 in the world, ranked 6 in South Africa, ranked number 1 in Germany in +35. Why did I improve with age? My understanding of emotional intelligence improved.

When you start off as a coach, you think it is all in the technique and athletic ability that makes champions, only to be disillusioned in my goals.

Dr. Chevette Scott Alston's Play Attention Program

This summer I ran a pilot program for ADHD students. The components used were to improve focus, working memory, and social skills. I have had a few years of experience using Play Attention with my clients and I chose this program to help with focus. There weren’t many kids. We started with six and ended up with three. The three that were left were all males who had a combined type of ADHD and were functioning within some spectrum of Asperger’s. None of the participants were medicated for...
