After retiring from my MLB and 15yr Professional Baseball Career -
I chose to Mentor, Coach, and Train up-and-coming Athletes on the most important aspect of their performance - MINDSET - so they too could play into their full physical potential.
After working 1on1 with hundreds of Athletes of all ages and sports - I’ve found that too many Talented Young Athletes struggle to play at the level they're capable of.
Their issue isn’t physical -
That’s why I began giving pre-game Visualizations to the Athletes I mentor - to fully prepare them Mentally and Emotionally to play their best.
Each audio visualization is short (6-8min long) with inspiring background music, and contains a “BEAST” Performance Lesson - allowing the Athlete to see and feel themselves perform successfully in the next game.
Get started now with PLAY LIKE A BEAST 2.0 - In my own journey, as well with those that I Mentor, I can share without hesitation - that an extraordinary Mindset and Mental Toughness will absolutely be needed as much as any physical skill -
But a program developed from the most effective strategies I use with the young athletes I stand with each day to help them accomplish what they never believed they could.
The training lessons found in the Audio's & Videos are the result of me asking myself 3 questions before working with any Young Athlete...
Hey, let's face it. Every Athlete would rather put in physical work than talk about the Mental Game (Myself Included lol). So, over the years I've learned to keep lessons short and sweet. Each audio is downloadable, 6-8 minutes long and set to motivating back ground music. Allowing the Athlete to listen anywhere, on any device, to fully prepare mentally and emotionally for the next lesson, practice or game.
Here's where the BEASTS come in. The brain loves to learn in metaphors and analogies. Having the Animals as our Visual Guides to learn the principles behind Confidence, Focus, Resiliency (etc.), has been proven to dramatically increase recall, allowing Athletes to remember what to do—when they need it most...in the heat of competition.
Visualization is the key to it ALL. For an Athlete to improve they must be able to see themselves make the change first in their mind BEFORE their body and performance will follow. Having each mindset lesson embedded into a Visualization exercise allows the Athlete to SEE and FEEL themselves performing at new levels of success with that skill—training the brain and body to show up in that state their next performance.
"I am on the travel squad for Washington State and have qualified for our conference championship meet. What has significantly helped are the Play Like a Beast visualizations. Every meet has its own unique challenges and the visualizations each focus on certain nuances that help me settle down and focus. "
"I've learned how to elevate the way I play by using my thought process positively. By truly understanding what confidence is and how to visualize, I am now able to apply that not only in games but in my training, goal-setting, and even in school."
"He has helped transform her Mindset and Confidence Level and so so so much more! Jason has done just what his program says it does! THANK YOU and THANK YOU for bringing out the BEAST! Any parent that has a kid/s playing a sport, I recommend Jason! "
"The visualizations help me SO much more than any other mental or physical practice I've ever had!"
"My son Big Kat is 11 and plays club baseball. Kat has changed his focus and thanks to Jason's audios, he has redirected his mental preparation which thus far has equaled great results. Great info and guidance from Jason. Within a week, without changing mechanics, just his mindset, he is killing the ball. "
"ABSOLUTELY love the Falcon from Play like a Beast!!! How can anyone NOT be ready to play at their full potential and be successful after listening to this and applying it to themselves??!!! "
"Jason is the BEAST of all beasts! I love his perspective on “Beast Mode” principles and it’s obvious he truly lives them out in all that he does. I learn something new from each of our conversations and any time I hear him speak. His mindset knowledge and performance-driven coaching goes beyond baseball. His coaching applies to every aspect in life. If your looking to take your game to another level, Jason is the guy who can take you to your PEAK STATE and reach your goals. Unleash the beast from within!"
"In baseball there is so much failure and negativity that it is easy to get caught up in what you didn’t accomplish every night. Jason’s process helped me flip all of my focus to the positive that happened that day. Whether it was hitting a go-ahead home run or as simple as picking up a teammate after he had a tough strike out, there was positive to be found if I just looked for it."
"My Daughter listened to her first visualization yesterday before practice and a playoff game. She brought ur message to the plate and went 3-3 with 2 bombs into left field. She has been in a slump for over a month! Thanks so much!!"
"Parents and players, I can’t say enough about how Jason Botts has helped my son achieve greater heights in his daily life and athletic career. My son, Connor, was struggling as a lead off hitter for his high school team last spring. His average has jumped roughly 100 points and he continues to climb out of the “slump” that we are all familiar with life and on the field. Now, my son has the tools to handle situations like he experienced and can better address these times when they arise. Inevitably, the tough times will rear their ugly head again, but knowing how to address them, they become less insurmountable"
"I’ve been with Coach Botts for two years now, and two of his BEAST groups. Looking back I was a little skeptical at first. As a softball player, I already had a decent amount of success but I was looking for the edge that would get me to the next level that I wanted to play at. After hours of training, visualizations, mentoring and phone calls with Coach Botts, I can honestly say this is the best state my mind has ever been in on and off the field. A lot of people have a hard time believing in the mental game but, I can’t even explain how important it is. Playing at a higher level, you can definitely tell the difference between those that study the mental game and those that don’t. I recommend this training for any athlete looking to get to the next level or reach their goals."
"I like the BEAST group because it helps me be more confident. I like discussing baseball and everyday things with Mr. Botts and the others. The group helps me be more mentally tough and strong everyday, in baseball and life."
"The PLAY LIKE A BEAST program has helped me grow and thrive in both my academics and athletics. Learning how to visualize and control my thoughts has helped me grow as a person and an athlete. Visualizing has helped me in the classroom with tests, on the field and during training. Being on calls with the other Elite Beasts has allowed me to get answers to not only to the questions that I have, BUT ALSO answers to problems I may face in the future. If you want to take your game to the next level, I would definitely recommend PLAY LIKE A BEAST!!"
"Emma joined right after nationals. To share a little, Emma broke her jaw playing high school softball. When she came back from the injury, she just wasn't her normal self. She seemed timid and lacked her normal confidence. After doing her first session with Jason, she was so excited. She felt that she found a mental coach that totally got her. She talks to me after every call and is visualizing more. She is the Cheetah! Anyone who wants to take their child to the next level should contact Jason. I was talking to Emma's travel ball coach today and he was just amazed at how Emma is approaching everything differently and seeing results. She is getting her swagger back and it make me smile so big! Keep up the good work Jason and thank you! "
"During the past year, my son has had both 1-on-1 lessons with Jason and participated in group trainings in the Elite BEASTS program. I can definitely see the difference in him! His confidence and ability to deal with difficult situations - both on and off the baseball field - has improved tremendously!"
This 6.5 minute audio teaches a BEAST Mindset Lesson (the Wolf & Perseverance) and uses the power of visualization to mentally prepare Athletes before they take the field or court
