The Bulletproof Hitter
Is your kid playing great in practice...
...but struggling in games?
Well if so, I've got a little secret that I want to share with you right now:
More swings in the cage is NOT going to fix their problem.
Neither is pointing out (again) what he or she's doing wrong...
...or suggesting to just "relax" or "stay confident".
It's not that these are bad suggestions or anything...in fact they're spot on.
This is perfect advice....
BUT TERRIBLE INSTRUCTION.
It just doesn't work.
You can't just snap your fingers and *bang*, now I'm a confident player.
But, there IS a better way.
Now, here's something to think about...
What if getting your kid to consistently perform at their best was less about following directions and endless repetitions in practice...
...and more about giving them the tools and steps for them to handle their emotions to ALLOW for their training and skill to shine on game day.
Really think about that.
Because the mind left alone on the field is like a wild beast rampaging through a city.
You can't just talk this beast into behaving...
...or just hope that he goes away.
Action needs to be taken to eliminate the problem.
I'll be honest with you, I was the WORST at this as a player.
I was fortunate enough to make it to pro ball (a year and a half of minor leagues with the Astros) on ability and hard work...
...but I was SO hard on myself.
And whenever I would move up a level - whether it be from JV to Varsity, HS to JC, JC to D1 and finally D1 to minors - I would wonder...
"Do I belong here?"
And I'd wait for the results to show up or not to let me know how I should feel about myself.
And you're not gonna believe this...but that type of thinking...
is NOT helpful!
If only I new what I know now.
Take a look at the following example:
The Jones' vs The Lovejoy's
The Jones' vs The Lovejoy's is a concept I came up with to help demonstrate the two camps or mindsets that us as parents and players operate within.
Although these are not real “flesh and blood” people per se — their traits are absolutely real and based on real people.
You’re currently one of ’em.
Which one? … well, you’ll need to read the rest of this page to discover that.
But know this … one of them is struggling through this baseball process. The other is crushing it.
Meet the Jones family:
and now meet The Lovejoy's
You see, the Jones family means well.
Little Jones loves baseball.
And while he's not the best on his team, he has his moments when he puts it all together when he's really great.
He says that he wants to play in the big leagues someday, and while that's too far off to think about, his parents want to give him every opportunity to reach his goals, whatever that might be.
The problem is that his smooth, quick, carefree swing that he shows at home and at practice hasn't been there on gamedays.
Look at his last at bat:
First pitch, the pitcher comes right at him with a fastball down the middle, and everything about him is slower.
His swing just drifts through the zone, no resemblance to the confident swing Mr Jones has seen him take a thousand times.
"Swing the bat! Be aggressive!" Dad shouts suggests.
Now down 0-1, he already looks tight in the box.
"Why is he standing like that?" Dad wonders.
Pitch comes and he tries to swing harder, but the result is more of a herky jerky swing with no rhythm...timing is all off.
The next two pitches are both balls, he has a pretty good eye most of the time.
Then the 2-2 pitch comes, he takes his hack and again...it looks slower.
He makes contact but it's not that solid. Ground ball to the second baseman for the out. No hit for little Jones.
And this happens time and time again.
Dad thinks "If only he would use his GOOD swing, things would be so much better."
And on the car ride home, Dad really gets on a roll.
He doesn't yell...but he's not exactly calm either.
"What were you doing on that first at bat?" "Just be aggressive" "You know that thing you were doing with your hands in practice this week that worked so well? You didn't do that at all today."
And so is everyone else in the car.
Now, back to the real world...
...and I'll be honest with you, me and my son have been just like the Jones family.
But I finally decided that I didn't want this to be our experience.
I wanted my son to give HIMSELF a chance to succeed, and see what he can do.
And I certainly don't want our baseball experience (which should be peak Father/Son bonding right?) to be be filled with such tension.
So I looked into options.
I read books.
I called on the best minds I could get a hold of.
And I found fantastic news.
There are ACTUALLY steps and strategies that players can use to combat their nerves and play their best baseball.
There is a way to become the Lovejoy's....
In an effort to make sure that my son doesn't miss out on the training that me and my teammates should have received...
I started doing research...
and to be quite honest, I became obsessed with all things thought, brain and self controlrelated.
And what I found is that there are MANY ways for a player to calm the mind and perform with freedom and confidence.
In fact, there were so many good strategies that it made me kinda mad!
Like, this would have been really helpful, ya know?!
And during the Youth Baseball Summit that I hosted earlier this year, I spoke with the most trusted mental skills coaches who are working daily with our multi-million dollar Major Leaguers on getting their minds right...
(because yes, their minds want to play tricks as well)
...and common themes and methods continued to come up....
...very helpful methods that WE'RE NOT EVEN SHOWING to our young ballplayers, let alone helping them put into practice.
And in the year 2019 with this being such a problem, this just isn't okay for me.
Imagine if I sent a kid out into the forest and said, "Go kill a bear."
...and gave them no tool or weapon to accomplish their task!
"Figure it out friend, find a way!
"...oh, and stay confident!"
That kid isn't going to last long out there.
And that's EXACTLY what we're doing with our kids on the baseball/softball field...
Hitting a ball isn't what's so hard. Catching isn't what is so hard...
...it's dealing with the mental demons!
We parents and coaches ask them to slay these demons and give them no tools to do so.
And the result??
Yep, these kids aren't lasting long out there.
But the strategies are out there and I didn't want to wonder "What if" I had shown these techniques to my son.
He wasn't going to be a Jones, he was going to be a Lovejoy.
So which family do you relate to?
I've been a Jones and I'm living life currently as Lovejoy.
And it's good.
It's definitely better.
There are REAL methods you can use to help your child manage their emotions.
And as you know, they're *so* close to being great.
They just have to get over that hump.
They just needs a little help.
So I've put together a training that our kids have been missing out on.
And before I get into the details of the program, I want you to know one thing:
It just works.
I've been so excited about the feedback we've gotten from parents so far, because our kids - YOUR KID - want so badly to play well...
...and you'll spend hundreds, sometimes thousands of dollars in lessons and equipment...
and nothing on what is ACTUALLY holding them back.
Before today, you didn't know of an alternative - I know I didn't.
But your eyes are open now...
...and right now you have the opportunity to step up and give your son/daughter a MAJOR dose of positive mindset, encouragement and emotional control training that they so desperately need.
And all it takes is just a SINGLE concept to connect with your kid to turn them into a totally different player on gameday...
...to go from a Jones to a Lovejoy.
Here's an email from a recent Bulletproof Hitter student:
Sometimes kids need juuuuuust one little boost, or permission to let themselves play well.
They're so close to being great.
Here's a facebook message I just got:
Here's email number 1 from a Dad:
"My son is a 10 year old he is actually quite good. He’s the leading pitcher plays short stop is on all the all star teams. Has a lot of success. Until he steps in the box. And lately the fear of getting hit by a pitch is overwhelming him. I purchased the lessons 2 days ago. I was planning for my son and I to watch them and on my drive home I get a phone call from my son in tears saying he’s sad because he is about to start all stars again and he knows he won’t be able to hit the better pitchers because he is so scared when he steps into the box. We watched the first four lessons of the trainings and I could see his attitude change a little, I'll let you know how he does tonight."
Here's email number 2 from Dad, later that same night:
And a base hit.Sang every at bat.
You could see him still fighting those fears but wow what a difference. And the base hit was against one of the harder throwers in the league.
His smile today brought tears to me eye. He loved playing baseball today!!!"
Ok one more, I could read these all day:
"My wife sent me a link to Bulletproof and I am incredibly thankful. She cannot remember how she came across your site, but the Lord made sure it got to me. It was an easy decision to purchase the series after reading your philosophy.
Landon and I watched the Intro and Lesson One last night. We talked through it. We discussed his fears and some tips on how to change our mindset. Then he asked if we could walk out to the cage and take some BP. We both learned from the videos.
When he would get frustrated I would simply remind him that we needed to change our perspective, nod at the issue because he knew how to fix it, and move onto the next swing. I don’t believe that all of it set in for either of us, but I do believe that we were communicating in a way we hadn’t before. He asked if we could do one or two videos a day—how perfect is that?
Regardless of the improvement in Landon’s game, I believe the value of this investment is in the great communication I have seen in one night with my son. Priceless.
I'll be honest, that one kind of got me...I mean, how good is that???
I know finding programs online can make you scratch your head and wonder:
"Is this for real?"
And listen to me when I tell you:
Yes, this is for real.
Kid's careers are being changed and entire family weekends and relationships are being improved.
All because parents had the courage try something new for the sake of their player's success.
And BTW, I'm not going to charge $1,000 for this either, I want this to be THE difference maker for YOUR kid.
