Hack Your Mindset with Jenni

“But dealing with set-backs is such a major part of what makes a top-class athlete.”Jonty Evans talks about how his dream came true then he had to make some serious Mindset choices to continue his success. Individual 9th at the Rio 2016 Olympics, having to raise £550k to buy his amazing horse Art in 2017 and then his serious fall in 2018 meant his world came crashing down around him.
