Role Models | The Mental Game | TopVelocity Baseball Forum
August 28, 2011
Hey guys just wanted to post something about the mental game today. It’s about role models. How many of you have role models? Post here (make sure they are not MLB players, because everyone here is a baseball fan) with a description of why. It’s so important to have role models because not only do you have someone to look up to, but it helps with other aspects of the mental game. If you have a role model you can really feel them. Think about how they BREATHE, they way they WALK, the way they TALK, the SWAGGER they have. You can get your visualizations from these things. You can also focus on their inner dialogue. What they would say in this situation.

I will be giving a talk about how to choose role models soon and I want to get you guys’ opinion on how you would choose your role models. Since you guys haven’t said your role models, I’m going to start by giving one of my role models.
One of my role models is Steve Nash from Pheonix Suns (NBA). I like to have more sports role models than not because of the fact that you can totally see how they will respond to a tough situation. I chose Steve Nash because he’s one of the humblest guys in the NBA and because he’s not the person who makes the plays himself. He usually passes the ball around the team and gets lots of assists. He has also been an MVP before, which means he can be a one-man team when they need him to be. However, I know learning from MJ or Kobe Bryant will be much better because they are more aggressive and much stronger, but Steve Nash suits my personality more than the others.
