No pressure, no diamonds
March 26, 2014
Diamonds are made from the very common and ordinary substance carbon (which coal is also made from).
High pressure and high temperature turns carbon into a diamond.
Volcanic eruptions deep within the earth bring them to the surface.
Diamonds are tough. They are the hardest material on earth.
Athletes want to be tough too, along with valuable and special.
But too often athletes shy away from pressure or crumble under it.
One reason is that they don't have the emotional coping skills to manage the pressure cookers that they find themselves in.
There is not a quick fix to solve this dilemma. But we can help.

With the emotional skills to handle pressure, athletes can better go from common and ordinary into something tough and special.
