This week on the Way of Champions Podcast, we have a
discussion with Lindsey Wilson from Positive Performance Training
about the importance of the mental game for athletes of all
ages. Lindsey works with athletes and coaches to unlock player
and team potential through mental performance training. As an
athlete, Lindsey had the privilege to play on many successful teams
and collect an impressive athletic resume along the way. As a
mental training coach, Lindsey has developed mental performance
training tools and techniques for universities, teams, and
organizations across the globe.

Min 43: How do coaches recognize when a problem is a mental
health issue, not a "optimizing performance" issue
Min 50: The power of visualization
Min 59: Learn to be a mindset coach
As the Co-Founder and Product/Program guru for Positive
Performance, founded in 2008, Lindsey felt a strong call to help
other athletes optimize their mindset and fulfill their potential.
Today, the Positive Performance team provides athletes and teams
with high-quality, easy-to-digest, complete mental training
programs, as well as resources for coaches, parents, and athletes
to help them maximize their potential.
Some of Lindsey’s accolades include two Big 12 Women’s
Basketball Conference Tournament Championships while at Iowa State,
won a regular season Championship, and made it to the Sweet Sixteen
twice. Playing on three NCAA tournament teams, Lindsey was an
honorable mention All-American, an Academic All-American, and was a
three-time All-Big 12 conference player selection. In 2003, Lindsey
graduated with honors as the second All-time leading scorer and
All-time assist leader for the Iowa State Cyclones. Lindsey was
drafted by the WNBA Connecticut Sun, and played professionally in
Europe and the Middle East for 8 years. She has been described more
than once as ‘relentless’ by opposing coaches- something that makes
her far more proud than any official accolade.
