One significant component of The Grooming Alchemist is to support athletes with their confidence and self-esteem, enabling them to become strong athletes. Self-esteem is what will lead them for the rest of their lives. Self-esteem is how a person values themself; it is an essential requirement for one to thrive not only in sports but also in life and experience positive development. Essentially, it is how one perceives their value to the world and how valuable they think they are to others. Self-esteem affects trust in others, relationships, education, nearly every area of life. It arises automatically from within based upon one’s beliefs and consciousness. Self-esteem occurs in conjunction with one’s thoughts, behaviors, feelings, and actions. So, if those feelings, thoughts, and activities can be redirected through services, programs, positive collaborations, or mentorship, one can improve people’s self-esteem.

High self-esteem gives strength and flexibility to take charge and grow without the fear of rejection and failure. Developing self-esteem is the key to becoming a fully conscious leader, athlete, and achiever. The undeniable truth is that the strongest factor for success is self-esteem. One must believe:
• I can do it,
• I deserve it, and
• I will get it.

 

Activity Gap- An Overview
A national study examined trends in extracurricular participation among kids in the U.S. from the 1970s until today, 2020, through long-term data and conversations with 120 young adults across the country. What the researchers found is quite alarming. Income-based differences in extracurricular participation are on the rise, and these differences significantly affect later outcomes. This disparity exacerbates the already growing income achievement gap that has kept poor children behind in school and later in life. Moreover, while upper- and middle-class students have become more active in school clubs and sports teams over the past four decades, their working-class peers “have become increasingly disengaged and disconnected,” particularly since their participation rates started plummeting in the ’90s, the study found.
