WAY OF THE BEAST - What has to happen for you to have fun?

Uncategorized Jun 29, 2020

I’ve always been the first to admit…

I didn't become a mental coach or mentor because I was the perfect model during my career…

But I do my best each day, to be a guide I wished I had during my career.

There are lessons that I didn’t learn until I was 25 or 30…

I believe that if someone had reached or explained to me when I was in middle or high school would have made a massive impact on my journey.

No doubt I would have been more successful, but even more importantly, I would have enjoyed the journey and been more fulfilled through it.

FUN & FULFILLMENT are one of the core lessons I teach now, and after sharing it on last night’s video call with my PRIDE Members

I woke up this morning wanting to write about it and share it with you as well.

If COVID-19 has taught Athletes anything, it’s the simple joy of just BEING on the field or court, along with the simplest activities of playing catch or taking shots or hanging with...

The Strength behind a Player's Limitations...

Uncategorized May 31, 2020

Early in my career, while playing at the lower levels of the minor leagues…

I had a teammate who hands down was the best defensive shortstop in the league.

The dude would get to balls that I had never seen anybody get to before…

And game after game he’d do things I didn’t even know were possible on a ball field.

He’d run down a ball in the hole to his right…slide, field, and throw…all in one motion.

Other times he’d field an awkwardly bouncing hopper up the middle and somehow spin and chuck it to first before it looked like the ball was even in his glove.

But, what was most interesting about this superhuman defender…

Was he barely had average arm strength and was the slowest player on the team.

(In fact, we used to tease him that the scouts clocked his times from home to first with a sundial)

At first, I just admired his spectacular performance…

But eventually, I decided to ask him…how do you do it, man?

He...

Practice Vs. Performance

Uncategorized May 25, 2020
 

One of the biggest lies in the sport's world...

is that Talent + Hard Work = SUCCESS.

Both are absolutely needed...

Yet an athlete can be oozing with talent and be the hardest worker in the room...

But without confidence and belief in themselves...

They'll never achieve the level of success they're fully capable of.

Doubt, fear of failure, and the inability to handle pressure will be the limitations to their success...

Not how fast they run or how hard they hit or throw.

If you have a son/daughter with big goals in sports...

And they're not playing as well as you think they could/should...

Or you're looking to give them an edge when they get to higer and more competitive levels...

Check out Jason's Mentorship & Mindset live video training calls...

Dedicated to teaching athletes (best ages 12+) advanced mental performance strategies and helping them develop unstoppable levels of self-confidence on and off the field.

Focus on your Athleticism first

Uncategorized Apr 06, 2020
 

 

Hey, Jason here.

For most Athletes, it's easy to go practice their skills (they love their sport & it's fun)...

But for the Athletes that I personally mentor in the Elite BEASTS -

I'm constantly reminding them to focus on improving their Athleticism FIRST.

Yes, I want them to constantly work on refining their technique, too...

But the quality of their long-term success will depend on how much physical talent they can channel into those mechanics.

This video clip from the Group Call was made during COVID-19 (I sure hope that's passed now, I miss my Starbucks)...

But, the message applies for Athletes at any time of the year.

Until next time,

Do the work, trust the process, and stay hungry!

Champions act like Champions before they become Champions

Uncategorized Mar 25, 2020
 

Hey Guys, Jason here.

No doubt for Athletes these are frustrating, & perhaps even boring times...

But, for the Athletes that can maintain their motivation -

That can keep focused on their big goals and the areas of improvement they have for themselves...

This is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for players (& teams) to pull ahead of the competition.

This week I wanted to share a clip from last week's Elite BEASTS Mentorship Call -

Where I help a Highschool Softball player gain some extra motivation to get her at-home core exercises in...

In it, I ask a series of questions that I use to guide Athletes to bring extra energy and discipline to "boring" or unmotivating tasks (& it works just as well for homework as it does for workouts lol)...

And also, explain why "Champions are Champions before they become Champions."

Check out that video clip above -

And for those that want to make the most out of these current circumstances...

And are ready to use this time...

A High-Performance Strategy to Practice at Home

Uncategorized Mar 20, 2020
 

Hey guys, Jason Botts here.

For Athletes of all sports, one of the most vital keys to great performances is...

GREAT TIMING.

Now, when I work with Athletes, I teach them that great timing comes from great trust in their skills (& themselves)...

And that the simplest way to improve trust is to get present in the moment (& not allow any negative thoughts or doubt to show up).

Here's a quick video I put together explaining this BEAST lesson and also sharing some examples of how Athletes can practice it around the house during these challenging times.

And for those interested in registering to receive the new 12-day Mental Skills Online Course (just $7) I created for Athletes to use these current circumstances to their advantage...

You can get started here with this link -

Until next time,

Do the work, trust the process, (have faith in this time), and stay hungry...

LIKE A BEAST!!

An Assignment to Elevate your STATE & Elevate your PERFORMANCE

Uncategorized Mar 12, 2020
 

Hey, it's Botts, Buddha, & Stella here (you'll understand with the video)...

But this week I wanted to give out an "assignment" to help you elevate your performance results!

It's a simple task - one that I give to all the athletes I personally mentor and coach this time of year.

Won't take long, but will have a huge impact on how you play this next week (IF YOU COMMIT TO DOING THE WORK).

This will help you whether you're currently "slumping" or already kicking butt and want to take it up another notch!

So, grab a sheet of paper and a pen...

Find a quiet place where you'll be able to use your imagination...

Push play...

AND don't get distracted by all the sweat pouring down my face (it's smoking hot already in South Florida hahaha).

Until next week -

Do the work, trust the process, and stay hungry...

LIKE A BEAST!!

The Cheat Code to Athletic Success

Uncategorized Mar 03, 2020
 

 

I tell the Athletes that I mentor,

"That visualizing is the 'cheat code' to get better, faster."

That an Athlete every day must close their eyes at least once -

And imagine themselves more successful, and in bigger situations, with better skills...

That's what trains their brain, and their beliefs, to show up in those moments.

Yet, an effective visualization process has less to do with what's visually imagined...

And more about what's being felt in the moment.

When visualizing, an Athlete's number one focus should be increasing the positive emotions in their body, because...

Their emotion is what fuels their brain to make what they see a reality.

And before games, that's what puts them into 'state' to play their best.

Watch the video above to get more tips and info, on how to fire up your visualizations with more emotion, so you too, can improve even faster.

And for those that haven't received it yet,

Stay Calm before the ATTACK -

Uncategorized Feb 19, 2020
 

Whether you're a Hitter or a Pitcher (or an Athlete of a different sport) -

There is so much a Ballplayer can learn and model from the hunting style of a TIGER.

Tigers don't live in open valleys - they can't stalk and run down their target like Cheetahs.

Tigers don't live in groups - they can't work as a team to run down and trap prey like Lions.

Tigers are known as "ambush hunters" - they must stay calm, patient, and still -

Waiting for the right moment to leap and attack.

This week for the PLAY LIKE A BEAST Blog - I share a video clip from my Elite BEASTS Mentorship Call the other night -

Watch the video above - to see me share more about HOW Ballplayers can get the most out of their physical talent by playing like a Tiger. 

Until Next Time,

Do the work, trust the process, stay humble -

And PLAY LIKE A BEAST!!
