by Rick Bowler How much time do you spend developing your mind? Athletes excel at different rates. This has seemingly been attributable to genetics, lucky breaks, or whatever other labels people put on talent. Some say a talented athlete is blessed. I believe that everyone has been blessed with talent. The difference is what we do with it. Successful people know that they got that way by applying themselves. Nowadays we have specialists who teach hitting, pitching, fielding, and every other aspect of the game. These specialists have developed excellent drills for physical performance on the field. And yet, in a game that is 90% mental, how much practice time is spent doing actual mental conditioning? Usually, responses vary from none to little. Some coaches say they work on the mental side of the game while they are doing physical drills. That is not necessarily the case, but they want to be able to say that they do, indeed, work on the mental aspect of their players game. This CD will allow you to use the advanced techniques of Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Hypnosis, visualization, and deep relaxation ... to discover your inner winner. Hypnosis is a state where you can access the part of your imagination that allows you to visualize easily. If you want to hit a baseball better, for example, you can visualize yourself from an observer position, hitting a baseball. Just see yourself hitting a baseball. Now, if you were to see what you would actually see, hear what you would hear, and feel what you would feel, if you were actually hitting a baseball, then you could do that perfectly, in your imagination, and it would be as if you had actually done it perfectly. Your subconscious mind cannot tell the difference between an actual event, and one that is vividly imagined. It would be as if you had hit the ball perfectly in real life, in real time. When you imagine yourself as being confident, seeing the ball well, and executing the perfect swing, that becomes a message to your subconscious mind of what you want, and a vivid memory of what you have done in the past. Practice does not make perfect. Perfect practice makes perfect. Your mind operates like a computer. You receive programming every day, whether you are aware of it, or not. You can remove, or override, any negative programming, and replace it with positive programming chosen by you, for your success. Are you doing everything you can do to make yourself a better baseball player? Take the time to invest in your mind. Take this opportunity to develop the mental aspect of your game.
