Publisher Description:
Felipe is a young soccer player struggling to find his identity among the elite players in the Mexican fishing village where he lives with his family. He is depressed that he is often overlooked by his coach and peers for the afternoon soccer game where the entire village gathers to watch the young players perform. Many evenings, Felipe complains to his mother about his situation, and one evening she asked him what he was doing to change his situation besides complaining? Felipe decides to change his mindset. With a different mindset, comes a different work ethic, attitude and results. Felipe aligns himself with the village soccer star, Rodrigo, as the two embark on a physical training regimen as they prepare to make the soccer team and perform in the Citywide tournament. Felipe is able to unlock the mental aspects of the game and through positive affirmations, visualization, and perseverance he is able to take his game to levels he had never dared. A window of opportunity, a talent scout from a prestigious academy, a moment of glory, and Felipe's entire life changes in a matter of weeks. #19 takes the reader on a journey from mediocrity to stardom. Unlocking the time tested and proven strategies to help young soccer players perform at their highest levels, elevating self-esteem and self-confidence.
