Graham Betchart is the director of mental training for Lucid Performance Inc. (@trainwithlucid). He is also the mental skills coach for many elite athletes, including several collegiate and professional basketball players. He has worked with the No. 1 draft pick in the last three NBA Drafts ('14, '15, '16), the NBA Player’s Association, USA Basketball and many other organizations. Betchart passionately seeks to unlock the full potential in each of the athletes he trains.

Betchart talks about what confidence truly means and how to achieve supreme confidence. He wants everyone to understand that confidence is a choice, not a feeling or something that happens to you. To control your confidence, you need to have a good attitude, high focus level, and high effort level. These need to stay constant through success and through failure. Once you are able to trust yourself and no longer fear being vulnerable or failing, then you have achieved supreme confidence.
