Mental toughness seems to have been preached and praised to athletes as long as athletes have competed...But the problem lies when already "mentally tough" athletes find themselves broken (mentally and physically) after injury. This is where I believe embracing vulnerability can shine. Cue in the work I have discovered by Dr. Brené Brown, world renowned author and Ted speaker on "The Power of Vulnerability". In this solo episode I present a bigger and better offer (BBO) to mental toughness after injury for athletes to embody, inspired by the very relevant work of Dr. Brown.

 Brown's very inspirational Ted talk and backstory to this episode. One day we will bring Brené on the show!

Enjoy!
