Born To Pitch | The Mental Game | TopVelocity Baseball Forum
July 1, 2011
Every year around this time I wonder what the new baseball season will bring us.
There seems to be more gimmicks, secrets and tricks to make a the average pitcher go crazy trying to figure out what works.
But the real question is…
Was you born to pitch?
I am not talking about DNA. I am talking about deep in your soul.
Does thinking about pitching keep you up at night?
Does the fear of losing drive you more than the thought of winning?
Do you really want the baseball with the game on the line?
Are you looking for a solution to throw 90 or an excuse why you don’t?
You can spend all the money in the world and it won’t buy you confidence, commitment or courage.
If you want to be great, quit trying to be like everyone else. Stop the comparisons to other pitchers.
You are on this journey and the only real competition is with yourself.
Everyday you have to be better than you were the day before.
Every practice is your playground and science lab. Don’t be afraid to fail and learn.
The truth is real pitchers never really win or lose. Their greatest joy comes from the competition.
Being great is more than a physical gift, it comes with a mindset that anything is possible.
Commitment. Mindset. Action Plan
If that is what you have been living for, Then You Were Born to Pitch.
