Failure sucks right?!
But, guess what? You are going to fail. Everyone fails. It's not all rainbows and butterflies.
It is what you do in times of challenges and failures that defines you as an athlete.
One of the girls in my program who has been working day in and day out on her mindset and confidence had an AMAZING weekend hitting. Doubles, singles, hard hits, all the feels!! So what do you work on?
Here's the straight up truth though... You have to practice these mental training tools diligently! It has to be routine for you, just like when you...
These are 3 tools you can start doing in your games right away to be the best, to feel amazing while competing, to create success, to get the game winning hits, to boost your batting average, to make those ESPN top 10 plays!!!
1. Visualization! See yourself succeeding at the skills and opportunities you have in your games and practices. Get your free download to practice visualization here!
2. Routines! Creating pre-game and pre-performance routines. When you have a routine that you've done over and over again, it makes you feel in control and confident! Get your free download to create your own sports routines here!
3. Demeanor! Act like your are the baddest, best player out there! Show up BIG! When you act and show up like this, it will translate into how you actually feel and perform.
My senior year of college, I decided to forget what had happened, stopped letting the past define me, and just played softball and GUESS WHAT?! I had my best year ever! Not just like rah, rah, I feel happy, but I doubled my batting average and I felt like I couldn’t be stopped.
I mentor girls on the mental side of the game because I want them to feel and play the way I did my senior year.
So how do you do that?
Let go of the batting average.
Let go of the stats.
Let go of the opinions from other people.
Let go of the pressure.
Just try it. For one weekend. What do you have to lose?! You’ve got this. Love the game you play again. Enjoy every second of it. Just play!
