Albert Pujols Baseball Tips: 5 Baseball Success Principles.

Let us know who you’d like to see in the next Baseball Principles Episode in the comments below.

When I think about an approach to hitting that young kids would benefit from understanding, I think of Albert Pujols.

His set-up is simple, he uses his lower-half better than anyone I can think apart from Bryce Harper. He’s selectively aggressive and plays the game the right way.

My favorite was tip #5. “All it takes is one swing to click”.

I’d love to hear what you’re was. Let me know in the comment section below!

Why ballplayers need entitlement & a sense of belonging.

 

This game is so emotional it’s crazy. As ballplayers, we need a high level of belief about our abilities.

This belief is the foundation for high performance on the field and in the batter’s box.

That is why I enjoy working with young ballplayers. I get to teach the youth about principles that make self-actualized individuals.

When I think of a player with a HIGH level of self-belief I think about Jose Altuve. He’s in many ways an anomaly.

Jose Altuve has had to overcome the limiting beliefs of people that have accessed his project-ability. His size –  I’m sure has been a challenge. It’s very rare to see players with his physical make-up, make it as far as he has.

I would consider him a pioneer and a legitimate role-model for smaller ballplayers.

The only way he’s been able to transcend these challenges is by stepping on the field with a belief that he belongs there. Period. He tells himself a positive story about who he is…

…that he is just as good as the players he’s competing against.

This is important and for most players, the master key in reaching and accessing hidden potential that can take their level of playing to a whole new level.

I had a conversation about this with a baseball parent recently. Here is what else I have to say about this very important topic.

Enjoy!

Play The Game With Reckless Abandon Like Hunter Pence

Play The Game With Reckless Abandon Like Hunter Pence

 

Have you ever heard the saying that “the guy on top of the mountain didn’t fall there”?

It paints an accurate picture of a truth about hitting that has stood the test of time.

To be the best, to be on top, takes a strategy and the courage to journey and overcome challenges that guide you to where you want to be.

Being a hitter is a journey.

Becoming a good hitter is an adventure that takes time and sacrifice.

This is one of the many lessons I strive to impart on the hitters I work with everyday.

Another one is the ability to stand in the batter’s box while feeling and being un-stifled.

To be free. To play this game with a certain level of trust that allows us to tap into our true potential. When we are hesitant, stuck in our head, we become victims of “paralysis by analysis”. It happens to the best of us.

In this swing analysis video, I’ll break down Hunter Pence and how he plays the game with this level of certainty because isn’t that what we want?

We play this game to achieve certainty. Certain that we are capable. Certain that we can perform and live up to societal expectations. This can be a good and bad thing but we’ll save that topic for another day.

Watch this video with Hunter Pence & leave a comment to tell me how you are going to play this game more freely. I want to hear your thoughts.

Enjoy!

Bo Jackson, Integrity & Self Actualization.

 

So the other week, I spoke a little bit about my experiences with the temptations of steroids, how I avoided them and what it means to play this game with integrity and self-actualization.

Thanks for all the emails that were full of positive feedback.

I appreciate the love guys. I really do.

I received one email from a player who was actually going through these issues as we spoke.

I’d like to answer some of those question by going deeper into this issue.

Again, I appreciate all of the positive feedback lately.

You guys are awesome.

Well, I’m on my way to the facility to start giving lessons.

I hope you enjoy this video!
