Conquering challenges involves pain, and staying on top in sports, school, business, caregiving, or uniformed service invites pain as a regular companion.

Justin Commins is an NCAA national champion and school record holding soccer goal keeper, and a coach of amateur soccer teams in the Los Angeles area. Following a losing season (1 win, 15 losses), Justin and the other coaches adapted lessons from the SRTS app to change the mindset of each player and of the team. Justin credits the following season’s turnaround (10 wins, 5 ties and 5 losses). He then wrote up how he adapted the content from each section of SRTS to create lessons that applied directly to individual athletes and to the team as a whole.
