“To be the best, you must overcome your inner and outer opponents.” — Henrik Hjarsbæk.

This is a SportsEpreneur Podcast where I have an introspective conversation around soccer (football) and mental training with sports psychologist and mental trainer, Henrik Hjarsbæk.


By going to a mental trainer, you learn to deal with pressure, fear, and nervousness. You learn to perform well even when you have negative thoughts, low self-esteem, and experience disturbances. All of these training areas help you beat your opponent both on the inside and outside.

Specifically in this episode, we talk about how to apply mental training to the game, the uniqueness every footballer has on the pitch, journaling your feelings, youth soccer, the goalkeeping position, Henrik’s time playing with top football clubs in Denmark, his transition from footballer to mental trainer, and much more in this wide-ranging sports and mental training discussion.

We hope you enjoy this episode with Henrik Hjarsbæk.
