“My kid is amazing in the cage and in practice, but once he steps on that field, in the box, or on the mound, he/she falls apart!”
We have heard this over and over again from parents. It’s why we have put so much energy into training the whole person with our weekly talks, journals, and training techniques.
It comes down to this: If your athlete’s default is to think below the line, as Collin talks about in the video, then he/she has to learn and create the habit of always thinking above it! It is not easy and it isn’t guaranteed that success will follow. However, we promise that athletes and parents who always think worse case scenario will see that come to reality more times than not.

- • When have you had success?
- • How have you earned the right to be confident?
- • What’s one DO statement?
What you say to yourself is 10 times more powerful than what anyone can say to you. Take ownership of your self-talk. Recognize when your inner-critic (bad wolf) is popping up. Come up with a self-talk plan and make it more positive. Negative thinking will never serve or help you. Remember, the most powerful voice is your own.
Thoughts become things.

“Consistent positive self-talk is unquestionably one of the greatest gifts to one’s subconscious mind.”– Edmond Mbiaka
