In an effort to share different athlete development stories from a range of professional sports, PAADS will be posting stories on a monthly basis from active
and retired athletes. By sharing these stories we hope to provide athlete development specialists, aspiring elite athletes and others with a snap shot of how
athletes view a range of issues related to personal and professional development.
Canadian born Indy Car driver and former Dancing with the Stars contestant, James Hinchcliffe talks about the importance of mental strength, the power of visualization, how being grateful changes your perception of your sport and how he relaxes away from the track.
Sage discusses how his ability to network impacted his racing career and how he believes an athlete's ability to network impacts how they are perceived. He also discusses how he uses a sports psychologist to be in the best possible mind frame to perform at a peak level.
