Journeys Driven by Mentality



Beyond the Surface


This new article series brings you long reads of exclusively conducted interviews with athletes and performers from various backgrounds. We get into the psychology behind the performance and the psychology behind the person. It is fair to say that to succeed and achieve at a high level, requires a specific mindset. To be able to bounce back from adversity, adapt to unexpected situations, motivate yourself and perform with confidence are all facets of performance that originate in the mind.
