This episode, I was joined by Grant Porteous, Owner/Life Coach & Consultant at Intentional Life Coaching & Consulting to learn about how to conquer and change self limiting beliefs. It turns out there is a LOT of science behind our ability as humans to rewire our brains and set ourselves on new neural pathways to success. We form 90% of our beliefs by age 7 based on experience. You have an experience, you assess the experience, reinforce it with an emotion, and come to a decision or belief about the experience which then becomes wired into your brain and informs your other experiences going forward depending on how impactful it was. Over time, you will see more and more experiences as aligning with your already developed belief and reinforcing it and not notice the evidence that goes against your belief. (Ex: "I'm no good at relationships; Dogs don't like me; Things work out for other people but not for me; If you want something done right, you must do it yourself, etc.) But NO MORE! It doesn't have to BE this way! We are going to cover FOUR STEPS to replace negative beliefs that limit us with positive beliefs that will allow action and give us room to grow and learn. We also talk a bit about visualization as an important way to cement that new vision of what you want in your mind. Have a question for Grant? E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
There were close games! There were upsets! And our bracket was pretty darn good. ;-) This episode is a recap of the games that took place in Orem, Utah this past weekend at the WFTDA North America West Continental Cup!
PLAYOFF SEASON starts this weekend!! We have researched and compiled data from the 2019 season and are ready to fill out our brackets together! My friend and teammate, Amazon Avenger is a guest on the podcast this week and we are ready to tell you all about the seasons these 12 teams have had this year, players to watch, and if you want a preview of what to expect, we picked a game that is available for streaming for each team that really shows what they're about and what they can do in a close match up. It's cup season, these games could all go either way and the cup bracket is ripe with opportunities for upsets!

RE-DOWNLOAD the episode! We had an audio snafu in the first one and it should be fixed now. If you auto downloaded this morning, delete what you have, refresh your screen, & download again. :-) What does an MVP look like? What are the qualities we can all agree on? What are the reasons your opponent might pass you over for someone else? Is awarding MVPs an outdated practice? Is this a "BS award" that doesn't mean anything as some people like to say? Or is this still a worthy goal players can aspire to as a benchmark in their roller derby journey? This episode does a deep dive into the five factors other teams consider when choosing MVPs at the end of a game PLUS four ways you can increase your chances of becoming an MVP yourself if this is your goal. We are joined by special guests this week from the Small Town Outlaws, Violet Rage and Tabby Katastrophe! Visit our sponsor, Bout Betties at https://boutbetties.com/.

Are the people closest to you holding you back or driving you forward? Are you being influenced or are you the influencer? What do you do with your friends when you decide to be great? This episode asks you to take a hard look at your inner circle and ask if they are helping you achieve your goals and 4 STEPS necessary for your growth as a roller derby athlete and human being.
What does "uncoachable" look like? What does this label mean and what can you do to change it? How can you help your coach help you? How can you help yourself better achieve your goals?
Rankings and Feelings! What affects rankings and what effect does that ranking have on you? This week's Power Through the 4th Whistle Roller Derby Podcast episode discusses WFTDA's release of the June 30th rankings, 2019 Postseason Seeding and Brackets. I talk about the differences between last season and this season in seeding and how this postseason features the most globally diverse competition in WFTDA history! Then I explore what affects your team's rankings in the grand scheme of things and what effect this can have on you and your mindset.
You know it's supposed to be fun, right? Roller derby IS fun. If you are losing the fun in derby, you might be close to burnout. But there's hope!! In this episode, I talk about the 7 SIGNS you might have burnout and 5 WAYS to combat/prevent burnout. (I was NOT able to find the original post from Sandrine Rangeon's training program from five years ago. I can tell you it's 6 weeks of Hypertrophy, 6 weeks of Strength, and 6 weeks of Power.)
This week I got to sit down and chat with Rachel Rotten across the interwebz! Some of the big topics include league management, being a blocker for over 8 years and learning how to be a jammer in front of the derby world, and living with chronic illness and not letting it stop her from competing at a high level in our sport. Rachel Rotten is the longest standing member of Angel City Derby's Hollywood Scarlets.

Our first audience participation episode!! We are talking about bout day rituals or game day routines, whichever you prefer. ;-) What are the things YOU need to be successful? I cover the physical, food/fueling, and mental aspects of the days leading up to the bout and game day itself and all the things I've learned along the way and adjustments made for better success. And if you ever wanted to learn how to wash your gear, wheels, and bearings, I'll give you the tips on how to do that too. Thank you to everyone who sent in answers and told me about your game day essentials! And thank you to our past (and future) guests of the podcast who also chimed in with their responses: Lady Trample, Laci Knight, Rachel Rotten, and Optimus Grime.
This week's episode has a brief recap of the events taking place at La Classique Georgia W. Tush tournament in Montreal, Quebec followed by our topic this week inspired by an episode of Get Ya Mind Right by Niyi Sobo -- The Consequences of Being Soft. When you're afraid of getting hurt, afraid of failure, afraid of losses...that's when you get hurt. That's when you lose. But if you're aggressive and hit the hole hard, that's how you win and make big plays. Plus a story of what I learned from playing my first rugby game this weekend!

Coach Dan returns in this episode! Together we discuss 7 big ways to lose your team's trust (the 7 Deadly Sins of Coaching if you will). Trust is not something you automatically get when you decide to become a coach. Trust has to be earned. And it can be easily lost if you lose your way and slip up. We'll discuss the flip side, how to avoid these pitfalls and honestly communicate with the members of your team. Next week I am asking for audience participation and we are discussing Bout Day Rituals! Feel free to send in your special bout day rituals/routines in a voice message of 1 minute or less by clicking on the voice message link below.
