Every baseball player has hidden potential within them that’s waiting to be discovered and put to use.
Have you ever wished that you could just press a button and become a better ball player?! I know I have……..!
Well, I don’t have a button you can press but I do have 3 ways that you can dramatically improve your performance on the field so that you can begin to play better baseball, and stand out on the field like the way every player truly desires.
Look in the mirror and affirm your goals
A huge part of realizing your dreams as a baseball player begins with BELIEVING. We may think that we have confidence in our own abilities. But do we this same confidence at the subconscious level?
Is there even a small part of us that doubts we will have the ability to
- hit 90+ mph fast-balls and make it look easy
- earn a baseball scholarship
- get drafted
- come back from an injury in time
- become the best hitter in the league
Having faith in our abilities is a process though. One that comes only when we put in the time and effort.
Hours of practice will convince us that we have trained well, and the abilities that we are striving for will come in time.
So how do we convince ourselves that our goals will be achieved when no matter how hard we try, it still feels like we won’t be good enough?
Affirm them to ourselves in the mirror until we have convinced our subconscious mind!
When we have beliefs that are created on that level, no obstacle, person, or setback can convince you otherwise.
Here is a great affirmation that you can use while looking at yourself in the mirror.
Write your dreams down
The first step to eventually making the adjustments needed to become a better ballplayer begins with getting CLEAR with what it is you truly want to accomplish.
Why write them down? Because it allows you to become objective with what it will take to play at the highest level and dominate.
Also writing it down will help you to reinforce what you’re goals are so that you don’t get distracted by the many obstacles that baseball provides.
You wan’t to hit for more power? Write it down!
You wan’t to run a faster 60 yard dash? Write it down!
You wan’t to hit over .400 this year? Write it down!
You wan’t to get drafted or earn a baseball scholarship?……..Get the job done in the class room……and then right it down;)
Write your goals down and post it on your wall, so that it becomes a daily reminder!
Don’t forget to enjoy the game
Have you ever noticed that baseball just seems so much easier when you’re having fun?
You have better hand-eye coordination, enhanced accuracy, and it just seems that you get all the right hops, and good breaks on the field.
All is well when you’re having fun!
So why don’t we have fun more often?!!!!
Why do we let, failures, and adversity take away our natural ability to play this game like it’s a gift!!!??
Why are we focusing on things we can’t control? ( bad umpires, bad weather, bad coaches).
Why not smile, and focus on the ONE thing we can control?!!!
Did you know that when you smile, your body releases specific endorphins that have a huge impacted on your physiology?!
Next time you get a bad break, smile and know that things will fall in your favor next time. That is what baseball is all about. Continuing on after failure after failure.
It’s your turn
Are you going to tap into your hidden potential?
Will you finally become the player that you truly want to be?
What are some things you’re doing right now to make sure you’re getting better?
