dc.description.abstractThere are a number of factors that contribute an individual’s level of subjective well-being (SWB) during their college or athletic career. Researchers agree that two integral predictors of SWB are an individual’s level of grit and their ability to utilize a growth mindset (Hou et al., 2021; Albert et al., 2019). However, work regarding student-athletes’ subjective well-being related to their grit and mindset is limited. This thesis examines the role that established self-regulatory processes (i.e., grit, counterfactual thinking, and mindset) contributing to student-athletes’ levels of subjective well-being within their present environment. The present study explored the relationship between these constructs in Division 1, 2, and 3 student-athletes (N = 75) across Central Texas using simple ordinary least squares multiple regression and indirect effects analyses. Findings showed that grit alone was the sole positive predictor of well-being in student-athletes, accounting for approximately 30% of the variance in SWB scores. Collectively, these results suggest that grit may serve student-athletes well, as they pursue long-term goals both within and outside their athletic domains.
