Misty Copeland’s Mental Strength Applies to Golf Too

The inspiring, supremely talented, and beautiful Misty Copeland, who made history as the first female black principal ballerina at the American Ballet Theater, appeared on the “CBS This Morning Show” last week launching her new book, “Ballerina Body: Dancing and Eating Your Way to a Leaner, Stronger, and More Graceful You”.

What’s this got to do with golf? Copeland’s message is by no means confined to eating and exercise; she equally credits mental strength and says it pertains to sports and performance of every kind. 

“I think it’s so important to be mentally and emotionally prepared and strong. And I think every woman, every person can relate to that,” Copeland said. “That it’s not just about physically being strong, but believing in yourself. And feeling beautiful on the inside, and truly accepting who you are.”
