“I enjoy sports since I was a little girl. I started playing volleyball at the age of 11 in a small team in Belgrade, Serbia. As I was growing older, better ,stronger, with help of great coached by my side, my skills became great. I got the opportunity to pursuit my career in United States, to play volleyball and study; my life completely changed. Trainings got harder, pressure got higher, and competition more serious than I was used to. From average athlete like me it was expected to train, and act like a professional. That is when my mental break down happend.
My coach Naomi Washington, former Olympian, was always telling me: “Everything is mental!” I decided to study psychology, and apply my knowledge into practice. I was one step away from loosing my scholarship, but then I set my goal to be the best player they have ever had. From that moment, everything changed. Way to the top was not easy, but I can tell for sure that it was worth it.
The journey I went through is combination of developing mental as well as physical skills, overcoming challenges, and most important, keeping my eyes on the main goal. I would lie if I say I was not scared, but I kept reminding myself that the only opportunity we have to be brave, is when we are scared.
Today, I help athletes and teams to get where they want to be through proven mental strategies. If it was possible for me, I know it is possible for you as well. I know we can make your dreams come to reality; lets get there faster, and easier, by doing it together!” – Ana Privrat
