Ultimately the fear virus is beaten by maintaining a focus on the steps you need to take to meet your goals, and keeping your mind on positive outcomes. As Peter Gabriel says in the song Darkness:
“When I allow it to be, it has no control over me, I own my fear, so it doesn’t own me.”

Fear will destroy everything you ever worked for. It will stop you not just achieving your goals, but can stop you even trying.
Success is relative. What one person sees as success another may see as failure. However, we all view success as comparative to something else.

Mental toughness is a learned process in which an individual learns to overcome adversity, stand up against the opposition, and the build the belief they can rise to the challenge of achieving their goals.
Coaches create lifelong memories. Our kids today are playing games they will remember for the rest of their lives, and I hope that when it comes to my son he is able to remember the games he gave everything, when he tried new things that came off, and that the score doesn’t take away the feeling of achievement if it’s a game the team lost.
