Apollo Beach, FL – Self-efficacy is a belief in yourself and your abilities. As the poet Virgil said, “They are able who think they are able.” If you believe you can do something, you can do it.
The wonderful thing about self-efficacy is that it can be learned through small positive experiences. A little bit of success can go a long way, and that’s where a coach can really help. Coaching takes you from the present into the future. Now is the time to see who you really are and what you really want. So where do you really want to go?

The NFL season kicks off Thursday, and we'll take a look at the teams we think are on the rise and which are headed for a decline. There are some great storylines to watch as the season approaches - we'll hit on some of them.
Plus, it was a big week for Michael Sam. Yet with the NFL season finally underway, Sam's story will take a backseat until he makes the Dallas Cowboys' active roster and plays in a game. After months of intense scrutiny, it will probably be a good break for Sam to play in the background of the NFL for a while.
ESPN's report by Josina Anderson this week about Michael Sam's shower habits in the St. Louis Rams locker room has stirred quite a controversy about how the media should report on gay athletes, with seemingly everyone from Sam's teammates to his coach to countless members of the media taking ESPN to task. Why is it not an appropriate topic for a report? We'll discuss.
Also joining us will be former Nebraska kicker Eric Lueshen and former Augsburg College linebacker Scott Cooper, both of whom will share their thoughts on the story and what it's really like in a football locker room.
Michael Sam will take the first for the St. Louis Rams for the first time on Friday in a preseason game against the New Orleans Saints. It will be an historic game as Sam will be the first openly gay player to play in any NFL game. The game will be broadcast on NFL Network.
We talk with St. Louis Post-Dispatch sports writer Jim Thomas about what we can expect to see from Sam in this game and where he sees the gay NFL rookie fitting onto the Rams' regular season roster.
The NFL officials are making it crystal clear to teams this week that gay slurs will not be tolerated on the field. While officials have had the ability to determine various actions "unsportsmanlike conduct," this new policy makes those slurs explicitly against the rule and punishable with a 15-yard penalty. Yet other leagues suspend players for the same incident. Is a 15-yard penalty in football enough?
Plus, the Gay Games kick off next week. Outsports will be there covering the Games from Cleveland all week. We reminisce about some of our favorite Gay Games memories and invite you to share yours!
Michael Sam accepted the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the ESPYs with a speech that left people across America in tears. Sam expressed a clear understanding of his role in the LGBT sports movement and in changing our culture. We talk about the speech and the next, most crucial chapter in his story: St. Louis Rams training camp and making the team.
Plus, earlier this week Major League Baseball hired Billy Bean as their first Ambassador For Inclusion. Where does this put baseball in the race to be the most inclusive pro sports league in America?
Former Wisconsin and Kansas football player Brad Thorson came out publicly on Independence Day in a post on his blog titled "Seeing through the fog."
Thorson joins us to talk about his experiences in college football and his brief stint in the NFL with the Arizona Cardinals, his coming out process and the reaction he's received, and finding a home in the sports world with the San Francisco Fog gay rugby team. He'll be traveling to Australia for the Bingham Cup later this year.
