So I’m taking it one step at a time and just achieving small goals will hopefully one day make me a 90-minute player.

“The way I’ve been brought up to is take critiques and turn them into positives in my game.” Alex Morgan

9.) An Alex Morgan Quote About Self Doubt:

13.) Worrying Less Leads to Facing Fears:

“Well I think for one, female pro athletes need to get paid—on the field or on the court, no matter their playing surface—they need to get paid equally. But also having female sports accepted throughout the world is something I want to see happen. Although soccer is not only accepted and embraced in the US, other countries don’t have women’s soccer because culturally it isn’t accepted for women to get dirty and to play sports. I think there’s a long way to go, but the US is setting a standard for other countries to follow and I think corporations and the federation can step up.” – Alex Morgan
