I absolutely love being connected with people like you who enjoy learning and growing and developing as human beings 🙂
I saw a post about mindset this morning that inspired me to share this …
One of the most powerful choices you can make is to clean out the enormous mass of mental and emotional junk that clutters your mind.
Selecting your thoughts the same way you select your clothes each morning is a powerful practice and skill you can cultivate.
If you want to have more control of your softball experience, work on purposefully utilizing your mind, your thoughts, and how you choose to think in ways that are most helpful to you.
It most cases, this is the ONLY thing you should be trying to “control.”
You already know, you CANNOT control …
- your teammates
- the weather
- your coaches
- your parents (or your child if you’re a parent)
- your friends
- where the ball bounces
- the umpires
- how the ball bounces
- the fans
- the strike zone
- your opponents
- whether or not you get a hit
- the outcome of a game
- acts of God
- etc, etc, etc
You can decide which the beliefs you hold on to. You can decide how you choose to see, and think, about things. You can choose different or better thoughts that actually serve you instead of hold you back.
Once you get the hang of this, you will FEEL the difference in your game. AND other people will start to notice that there’s something different about you.
You will stand apart from most players who haven’t yet made the choice to spend as much time on their thinking as they do on their hitting or fielding or throwing 🙂
