They aren’t willing to be patient. They aren’t willing to question themselves and take responsibility for getting it wrong until they get it right. They’re not willing to do that because there are too many shiny objects around. There are too many easy ways out. There are too many ways you don’t have to do the work.

Dealing With Racism | PS Clips | #AASP Ep.048
Do You Have A Losers Mindset? 👉🏽 https://perfectsoccerplayer.com/areyouinthegame A question I get asked about from time to time is, how do I deal with racism and racial abuse?     I know some of you are wondering how to deal with this issue, especially if you’re being racially abused during a game.    Personally, I just laugh.   Now don’t get me wrong, I don’t find the words or language they use to be funny.    What I think is hysterical is they think they are going to have any effect on me with what they say. Because when they use that language with me, what I really hear is:   “I’m super scared of you and I know that one day you’ll pass me if I can’t somehow convince you to stop working” In the #AskASoccerPro Show 11 year MLS vet Quincy Amarikwa breaks down the MSL (Mental Strength League), an ongoing game that he believes he and everyone else is a conscious or unconscious participant.   This is a philosophy and mindset he has developed, refined and implemented over the course of his life and now 11+ year professional soccer career...   And what he attributes to finding success in his personal, business and soccer endeavors… Resulting in the creation of the “Amarikwa Process.” A 7-step mindset process Quincy refers to when tackling any endeavor or meeting new, temporary obstacles.  Join him live every Thursday at 6PM PST on the @Perfect_Soccer Instagram account to learn to develop your mental strength and get your questions answered:   http://PerfectSoccerSkills.com/Instagram Full AskASoccerPro Show Replay here:  http://PerfectSoccerSkills.com/AASP Don’t have time for a full episode?  Catch all the best clips from the AASP show here:  http://PerfectSoccerSkills.com/PSClips Be sure to grab a free copy of Quincy's soccer book - The Perfect Soccer Player Blueprint; where you’ll learn to Master The 9 Keys To Soccer Success, and become the best player on the field:  http://PerfectSoccerSkills.com/PSTM The largest issue players run into is knowing how to properly manage their time and get the most out of their training.   Which is why we give access to our full accountability and time management document for FREE.

Shooting Tips | PS Clips | #AASP Ep.048
Do You Have A Losers Mindset? 👉🏽 https://perfectsoccerplayer.com/areyouinthegame I spend my time working in the extremes so that I can “find the balance.” Most of the time when followers are asking me questions, they haven’t first properly defined what their actual problem is…   Which is really what the problem is… Not being able to clearly define your problem.  The better able you are in defining your problem, the better able you’ll be at finding or creating a solution. Problem-solving should really be redefined as problem describing. If when I ask you to describe your problem you say something like “I don’t know” or “I can’t really put it into words” chances are you haven’t spent any time doing that… Working to put it into words.  Unless you can say that you’ve already spent 10 hours trying to define the problem and are still unable, you have yet to put in enough time to solve your problem. What you’re really doing is hoping that someone else does it for you.  If you’ve spent that much time trying to define your problem, and you still can’t put it into words, at least then you’ll have a body of work for someone else to work with and better help them, help you.   The more you put this into practice the faster you’ll find solutions to your problems. Once you realize you can find solutions to your problems on your own, you’ll not want to waste time waiting on others to give you the answers. You’ll know how to find them for yourself, which is empowering.   👉🏽😶👈🏽 #MSL @MentalStrengthLeague In the #AskASoccerPro Show 11 year MLS vet Quincy Amarikwa breaks down the MSL (Mental Strength League), an ongoing game that he believes he and everyone else is a conscious or unconscious participant.   This is a philosophy and mindset he has developed, refined and implemented over the course of his life and now 11+ year professional soccer career...   And what he attributes to finding success in his personal, business and soccer endeavors… Resulting in the creation of the “Amarikwa Process.” A 7-step mindset process Quincy refers to when tackling any endeavor or meeting new, temporary obstacles.  Join him live every Thursday at 6PM PST on the @Perfect_Soccer Instagram account to learn to develop your mental strength and get your questions answered:   http://PerfectSoccerSkills.com/Instagram Full AskASoccerPro Show Replay here:  http://PerfectSoccerSkills.com/AASP Don’t have time for a full episode?  Catch all the best clips from the AASP show here:  http://PerfectSoccerSkills.com/PSClips Be sure to grab a free copy of Quincy's soccer book - The Perfect Soccer Player Blueprint; where you’ll learn to Master The 9 Keys To Soccer Success, and become the best player on the field:  http://PerfectSoccerSkills.com/PSTM

Capturing Your Value | PS Clips | #AASP Ep.048
Do You Have A Losers Mindset? 👉🏽 https://perfectsoccerplayer.com/areyouinthegame Are you capturing your value?   Most people don’t know how to capture their value, much less express their value to others. Did you know that value is subjective? If you aren’t able to capture your own value, you certainly aren’t able to communicate it to others. What do you see as your measure of value? Is it physical?

Best Quotes From Episode: You can plan for A to work out, but you are also doing the work for if A doesn’t work out. The smartest person in the room will definitely let other people believe themselves to be the smartest person in the room; if that is what they feel they need to be successful. The dynamics of something, once it turns into doing it for money, changes the dynamics of what it is you are doing. Your experience is going to be typical of the average person’s, unless you are willing to do unaverage things. However I can take responsibility for the failure or the shortcoming, I’m going to do that, because doing so gives me the power over my future.

How To Get People Out Of Your Head | #AskASoccerPro Show Ep.042
In today’s episode: 00:00 - 02:01 - Introduction 02:07 - 07:56 - Having a hard time balancing school and soccer? Listen up! 08:00 - 17:58 - It’s about the discipline 22:13 - 26:24 - What drives Quincy to help others? 26:33 - 32:52 - Self interest will hurt you in the long run 33:41 - 39:53 - Are we getting mentally obese? 40:36 - 48:57 - How to get people out of your own head Best Quotes From Episode: At some point in life you will have to rely on your education and knowledge. Keep that in mind the next time you list your priorities. Learn from the mistakes of others. Everybody works to make money to live. If I can help you figure out a way to generate money doing the thing that you do in your free time, that to me is good business. Self interest benefits the individual but hurts the collective in the short term, but in the long run it’s the opposite, the individual will hurt while the collective will benefit. These days information is not considered valuable because you technically don’t have to work for it, you just open your phone and there it is. Be open to the idea that you can be wrong and it will still be ok Eye for an eye and the whole world goes blind, know what I’m sayin’? Don’t block out what people have to say, hear it, understand it, be grateful for it. People who want you to fail don’t tell you the truth If you’re not willing to invest in yourself, you will have a hard time accomplishing pretty much anything. In the #AskASoccerPro Show 11 year MLS vet Quincy Amarikwa breaks down the MSL (Mental Strength League), an ongoing game that he believes he and everyone else is a conscious or unconscious participant.

Best Quotes From Episode: Motivation will eventually run out. Once motivation is gone, what is going to drive you to do the things you know you need to but don’t want to? I am in control of my mind, I get in my own head and I am only focused on beating my worse self and nobody else. You can’t prove everyone wrong all the time. The better and the further you get, the more people will want to see you fail Most people live their life trying to impress other people and end up not doing the things that THEY like. People that are hating on you are literally paying you with their time, be thankful of that.

How To Deal With Toxic Teammates | #AskASoccerPro Show Ep.039
In today’s episode: 00:00 - 02:39 - Introduction 02:40 - 10:59 - A quick Perfect Soccer update 12:07 - 17:56 - The hardest thing to deal with as a pro 18:06 - 25:38 - Asking for more playing time 35:11 - 40:03 - How much training a day do you need to go pro? 43:27 - 45:15 - Relationships between coaches and players 50:09 - 55:12 - Dealing with toxic teammates Best Quotes From Episode: Depending on the way you assess and make decisions,  there is information that might be useless to someone, but very valuable to you. Results should speak for themselves, stats don’t lie but people can use the stats to lie. The hardest thing to deal with as a pro is not getting the credit you think you’ve earned. This is where your mental strength comes into play. If you learn how to manage your time, you will have the extra time you need to learn the other things that will help set you apart from your competition. Work with optimism but prepare with pessimism. Any adversity you face is just an opportunity for you to grow and improve. Nobody has your best interest in mind if they don’t teach you how they beat you! The more you practice your craft, the more your confidence will grow. Negativity is just someone else’s insecurities projected onto you. In the #AskASoccerPro Show 11 year MLS vet Quincy Amarikwa breaks down the MSL (Mental Strength League), an ongoing game that he believes he and everyone else is a conscious or unconscious participant.   This is a philosophy and mindset he has developed, refined and implemented over the course of his life and now 11+ year professional soccer career...   And what he attributes to finding success in his personal, business and soccer endeavors… Resulting in the creation of the “Amarikwa Process.” A 7-step mindset process Quincy refers to when tackling any endeavor or meeting new, temporary obstacles.

Always come with a perspective of open mindedness and a willingness to learn. One of the biggest reasons why players feel nervous before a game is their lack of confidence in their abilities due to lack of preparation. Making mistakes is required if you want to improve. Your job is to learn from your mistakes and not repeat them. Making small steps of progress, over a period of time will add up to big results. Money makes things easier for people. Even If you don’t have it, that just means you need to work harder. In the #AskASoccerPro Show 11 year MLS vet Quincy Amarikwa breaks down the MSL (Mental Strength League), an ongoing game that he believes he and everyone else is a conscious or unconscious participant.   The MSL is a philosophy and mindset Quincy has developed, refined and implemented over the course of his life and now 11+ year professional soccer career... And what he attributes to finding success in his personal, business and soccer endeavors.   As a result of the MSL, Quincy created the “Amarikwa Process,” a 7-step mindset process he refers to when tackling any endeavor, or, meeting new, temporary obstacles.

Look at adversity as an opportunity to prove your worth and dedication to your goals. You can’t change someones mind, only they can do that. Taking responsibility might be scary, but it is also freeing because now you have the power to overcome whatever it is that you did wrong. You never really know what a game will be like, you need to prepare to be prepared for anything.

In today’s episode: 00:00 - 05:33 - Introduction 07:56 - 12:00 - Biggest decision of Quincy’s career 12:51 - 14:47 - Does height really matter? 14:48 - 16:03 - Messi or Ronaldo? 19:57 - 22:55 - I’m in your head 27:46 - 32:24 - It’s all part of the process 43:09 - 47:36 - Learn from those around you Best Quotes From Episode: With so many things that can go wrong, dwelling and feeling sorry for yourself is a waste of time that can be better spent figuring out solutions to your current temporary obstacles (“problems”). Not making a team, or getting cut is part of the process, it’s those who can learn to overcome this quickly that will achieve their goals. It takes the “MSL” mindset to even have a chance of making it, and even then it is not guaranteed.

Little issues compounded over time turn into big problems. You need to do the work especially when you don’t feel like doing the work. You can go over all the technical drills and spend all your time practicing but at the end of the day it’s all about who wins the mental strength battle. If you can keep a clear head during the negative moments you will shine during the positive ones. Sometimes a “slap to the face” can do wonders for people. If you compare yourself to others you will never measure up because you’ll never have all the information. The only person you should compare yourself to is who you are and the work you’re putting in to become who you want to become. In the #AskASoccerPro Show 11 year MLS vet Quincy Amarikwa breaks down the MSL (Mental Strength League), an ongoing game that he believes he and everyone else is a conscious or unconscious participant. This is a philosophy and mindset he has developed, refined and implemented over the course of his life and now 11+ year professional soccer career...And what he attributes to finding success in his personal, business and soccer endeavors… Resulting in the creation of the “Amarikwa Process.” A 7-step mindset process Quincy refers to when tackling any endeavor or meeting new, temporary obstacles.

If you don’t implement the lessons you learn from others for yourself (take risks), you will never truly know if what they taught you is true or not. Just because it didn’t work for me, it doesn’t mean the same won’t work for you. Everyone’s experience is their own. To best be strategic with your time, first learn from the mistakes of others.

PRINCIPLES - Why I HATE Running And Still Play Pro Soccer | #AskASoccerPro Show Ep.032
In today’s episode: 00:00 - 06:52 - Introduction 06:54 - 07:42 - Can virtual football help players develop? 07:46 - 11:51 - I HATE running 12:02 - 15:03 - What does rest mean to Quincy 17:48 - 20:04 - Starting for the last team, or warming the bench for the first? 20:27 - 24:09 - Quincy’s purpose in soccer 30:33 - 37:16 - How Quincy gets wiser Best Quotes From Episode: The MSL in one sentence: Doing things you know you need to, to achieve and do the things that you want to. For anything to stand the test of time it has to be built on a foundation of principles. Something that holds true when things are good AND when things are bad. Relevancy is directly correlated to knowledge and your ability to extract it’s value at a certain point in time. For example, knowing how to produce vinyl records is much less valuable today than it was 30 years ago. Just because something is rare does not make it valuable. Knowledge becomes wisdom when you learn how to pass it onto others so they can create the same experience for themselves. You will never be able to progress if you are not self aware. In order to get “there”, you need to know where are you going, and that is where setting goals comes into play. Success does not come without sacrifice, and most people aren’t willing to make sacrifices because they choose short-term comfort over long term happiness.

When Do You Know If You’ve Got What It Takes? | #AskASoccerPro Show Ep.031
In today’s episode: 00:00 - 04:56 - Introduction 05:09 - 09:14 - Don’t ask Quincy this! 13:08 - 21:33 - How to maintain success 27:35 - 29:00 - How to boost your confidence level 29:01 - 33:24 - Can you afford your mistakes? 36:39 - 38:52 - How to see future problems? 47:26 - 49:15 - When do you know if you’ve got what it takes? Best Quotes From Episode: Learn how to learn. In this age of information, that is one of the most valuable skills you can develop. Reaching success isn’t a guarantee that you’ll be able to maintain it. Never allow yourself to become complacent. Confidence is the result of putting in the reps. Most people don’t put in the reps because they are afraid of making mistakes. Can you afford your mistakes? How do you know? At the end of the day, we’re all investors. Everyone may not have money to invest, but everyone has time. Never be afraid, or ashamed of asking questions or for help.

Don’t Let Fame And Money Take You Over! | #AskASoccerPro Show Ep.030

Best Quotes From Episode: You are much more likely to regret not doing something you want to do, than to do it and fail in the process. Most people spend their time avoiding making mistakes, and I believe that’s a mistake, because mistakes are validations of progress. Reaching success is one thing, maintaining that success is a whole different ball game. You will have to make sacrifices in your life, the difference is whether you choose your sacrifice or not. Confidence is a process, one that starts with seeing something that you’re afraid of and doing it anyway.

You can rest for weeks and prep your body with all the right things, but if you are not mentaly prepared, that physical strength will be gone as soon as you step on the field. 4.

That moment when you skip something thinking it doesn’t matter, is a moment that will help you decide if you really want to make it or not. 6. You don’t need talent to work hard, but if you work hard long enough you develop talent.

How To Maintain A Good Mindset When Injured? | #AskASoccerPro Show Ep.028

Use the resources around you to the best of your ability, creativity will help you both on and off the field. If YOU need something, figure out what YOU can do to make it happen and do that. (Focus only on what you can control) Injuries are a part of the game, and they will happen. Accepting that is the first step of keeping a good mindset when injured. Any time spent complaining and blaming anyone around you is energy taken away from figuring out a solution to your obstacle. Playing to win and playing not to lose are two different worlds. Understanding the difference is what winners figure out. It’s easy to be positive when everything is going your way, character is who you choose to be when things aren’t going your way.

The longer you procrastinate on the things you know you need to do, the further the competition will get in front of you Doesn’t matter if you have 5 dollars or 5000000 dollars, the process of budgeting your percentage allocation should be the same. Your level of discipline in making decisions with a 5 dollar budget will determine your ability (or lack of ability) to manage 5000000, 50000000 and more.

YOU decide what perspective you are going to take on whatever comes up, good or bad. Thinking positive and being optimistic will help you get started in overcoming obstacles but you still need to put in the work. Thinking isn’t doing. Wisdom is you ability to duplicate your experiences for others, seeing the results for themselves before they do. Even if you know what you need to do, it is much more difficult to actually do it.

Fake It Till You Make It Is Stupid | #AskASoccerPro Show Ep.024

Best Quotes From Episode: If you train yourself to do the things that you hate doing, you are going to create opportunities for yourself to do the things that you love. Trick your mind into taking any negative state in this moment as fuel for personal motivation to get you where you want to go Failure happens only if you decide to give up. If you make a mistake, self-reflect and implement what you’ve learned moving forward, that is not a failure, that’s progress. “Fake it till you make it” may work in the short term, but what happens when people learn that you are faking it in the long term? Most people are trying to make other people like them, and they think the best way to do that is to agree with whatever the other person says in that moment. That hurts you and them in the long term. Short term pain for long term prosperity. You can get whatever you want in life if you help as many people get what they want in life.

What if the future was right in front of you face but you didn’t believe it, does it mean it doesn’t exist? How you interpreted the words being spoken and what the person meant when saying them are two different things. Consistency and dedication over time yield results. No one has your perspective but you, which is what makes it very valuable. You can be the best student of the game and learn everything there is about soccer, but if you don’t apply what you’ve learned it won't matter.

I Love My Haters | #AskASoccerPro Show Ep. 021
In today’s episode: 00:00 - 02:20 - Introduction 02:35 - 03:04 - Thoughts on affirmations 07:32 - 09:11 - How taxing is the travel in MLS 09:14 - 10:08 - Quincy’s 100m dash 11:30 - 13:34 - I love my haters 17:22 - 19:31 - How does one get to Ronaldo’s level? 20:07 - 21:15 - I like to compete 21:44 - 23:05 - Favorite DC United player? 25:57 - 26:58 - Burning out or just being lazy? 29:21 - 33:36 - Making and breaking habits 42:32 - 50:14 - Developing self-awareness 50:15 - 51:40 - Nothing worth achieving is easy 52:59 - 56:13 - Jumping from USL to MLS Best Quotes From Episode: I want to beat you, but I want to beat you when you are giving 100% of your effort so you have no excuse other that I was better than you on that day. Self-awareness is your ability to recognize your strengths, your weaknesses, your advantages and disadvantages. So self awareness is understanding where you are, when you are, and starting to formulate a plan to get to where you want to be. Whatever your course of action might be, you need to have consistency in doing it, otherwise you are set to fail from the beginning. Nothing worth achieving comes easy. If everything is given to you, you don’t value anything. If you don’t value anything, nothing has any worth to you. You won’t have a purpose and you'll never feel fulfilled. It’s harder to get out of that than to start in a disadvantageous position in the first place.

Teamwork: How To Make Better Decisions On The Soccer Field | #AskASoccerPro Show Ep.020
In today’s episode: 00:00 - 01:26 - What we talk about here at AASP 02:55 - 06:25 - Theme of the day: teamwork 06:48 - 08:46 - Wanna score goals as a right wing? 08:51 - 12:11 - How much does Quincy run? 16:59 - 18:12 - Should I change positions if the coach asks? 21:45 - 25:09 -  What is your role on the team? 25:43 - 28:12 - Reading the game defensively 38:36 - 39:55 - Believing you are the best 40:10 - 42:06 - Make better decisions 43:20 - 50:04 - Good players ask for advice too Best Quotes From Episode: If who you were now was enough to get what you want you wanted, you’d already know what you need to keep doing. We need to improve who we are and the things we do, to become the type of person who will earn the things that we say we want. Try not to allow the pursuit of being a goalscorer, cloud your decision making on the field. I believe the way to play the game is to know what you’re good at, you know what your job is, and you do it well. The higher up in the ranks you progress, the less time you have to make decisions on the field. You need to focus on you, and what you need to do to get better. Believing that you are the best is a good thing but there is a difference between self delusion and self confidence. The problems you face on the soccer field are probably the same problems you face off the field. If you are not good at communicating off the field, how would you expect to be good at it in the heat of a game? There are win - win situations all the time, but not in soccer. We can draw, but we can’t both win.

Growth Mindset: Why did Quincy choose MLS over Europe? | #AskASoccerPro Show Ep.019
In today’s episode: 00:00 - 06:50 - Introduction and greeting fans 06:50 - 08:02 - Theme of the day: Growth mindset 09:28 - 10:41 - Was is hard to get in the MLS? 10:56 - 14:57 - Advice for utility players 16:16 - 19:46 - Going through college or straight to pro? 20:32 - 28:01 - Overcoming doubt 28:16 - 31:45 - Individual or team rewards? 33:06 - 36:20 - Preparing for college soccer 38:15 - 40:38 - Why did Quincy choose MLS over Europe? 45:06 - 47:10 - How does the game change at different levels? 48:25 - 51:44 - Extremely into the growth mindset 52:28 - 53:50 - There is no avoiding the work 53:52 - 56:07 - What is your WHY? Best Quotes From Episode: Those who doubt themselves tend to spend a lot of time doing so, instead of working on the things they need to do or put in place to avoid that doubt in the future. It’s ok to only be hungry for individual rewards, but know that doing so will require you to be ok with alone. You want to seek situations that force you to adapt, grow and overcome. At the youth and college level the game is fun. Once money is introduced to the equation, there is a different level of expectation from you and everyone around you. Most players can’t adapt because they focus on how they wish it should be, rather than prepare for how it actually is. I approach every day with the effort, motivation and learning eye like it’s my first practice. There is no avoiding the work, there is no special pill or trick, it usually is doing the simple things well, and doing them over and over and over and over... If you need motivation to do something, you are never going to do anything long enough to find success. You need to find a REASON WHY you will do something even when you’re not motivated.

Self Accountability: Patience Is Key, Reminder: We’re Playing MSL! | #AskASoccerPro Show Ep.018
In today’s episode: 00:00 - 04:24 - Introduction 04:45 - 08:03 - Step 3: Self-accountability 09:17 - 11:21 - Hold accountable on the things you hate doing 11:46 - 15:11 - Friendly reminder: We’re playing the MSL 16:19 - 17:26 - Falling back in school, too focused on soccer 18:52 - 22:18 - Break down your goals 23:34 - 27:10 - Do pros have free time? 29:15 - 31:31 - Training as a youth player 31:41 - 34:59 - Useless information is an expense 35:22 - 39:26 - It depends on the perspective you take 42:18 - 45:51 - Not getting enough playtime? 50:52 - 52:50 - The truth hurts 53:41 - 58:39 - Patience is key Best Quotes From Episode: No one should want to achieve your goals more than you should want to for yourself. If you enjoy doing something, at the very least find a way to make it more than just entertainment What separates the players that progress from the players that regress, is procrastination. If you can learn to find purpose and a point of view that will be beneficial to you in the future, every piece of information you take in is potentially useful. If things out of your control are holding you back, you have one option: accept it and decide if the outcome is worth it or not. If it is, stop complaining, if it isn’t, find something else. Slow and steady wins the race, the problem is, people want to win now at the expense of being able to also win later. MSL of the day: Even when I lose, I win! Optimistic futurist! Reaching a 10-year goal is not achievable, work backwards to break it down to actionable steps starting with day 1 In the #AskASoccerPro Show 11 year MLS vet Quincy Amarikwa breaks down the MSL (Mental Strength League), an ongoing game that he believes he and everyone else is a conscious or unconscious participant.
