Unlock the secrets of mental toughness as mental health coach Lauren Johnson joins me, Bree, to discuss the transformative power of resilience for both adults and children. Together, we peel back the layers of what it takes to cultivate grit in the face of life's curveballs. With insights from her experience with elite athletes, Lauren shares strategies that apply not just on the field but in the intricate dance of parenting. We tackle the art of redefining success and the importance of fostering a growth mindset, ensuring that every setback becomes a setup for a stronger comeback.

Have you ever considered that your approach to challenges could be your child's blueprint for tackling their own? This episode is brimming with guidance on instilling a resilient mindset in our children—a legacy far more enduring than any material inheritance. We examine the significance of language in shaping our kids' perception of effort and failure, revealing how subtle shifts can open doors to boundless learning opportunities. By teaching them to focus on the process rather than the outcome, we prepare our young ones for a lifetime of meaningful achievements.

Lauren received her Master's Degree in Performance Psychology and has worked with various leaders and organizations including: the New York Yankees, Google, the US Women's National Soccer Team, Johnson & Johnson, Mass Mutual, the FBI, Square, and others.
