Alan Jaeger Mental Skills Training
Part 2: Getting in the zone--Mental Skills Training for Enhanced Baseball Performance
Looking for the Long Toss and Arm Care episode? Click Here!
This is a tremendous episode with Alan Jaeger. Alan discusses the importance of developing your process and getting into the zone. This is a longer episode, as was the former, so I'm not gonna delay your listening enjoyment! In this episode we cover:
- How exactly to tap into the magical powers found, and get immersed in "the ZONE"
- How to shut out the external world so you can focus on your process.
- Find YOUR process no matter if you are a pitcher, fielder or any other sport athlete.
- How to push "the clouds" of distraction out of your way and get into FLOW.
- Listen to Alan describe his process as a baseball player, hear him help me with my process so you can develop your own process.
- How to prepare yourself to get rid of the common factors that inhibit you from reaching flow.
- How to detach yourself from outcome, as the player or the coach.
- And much more!

Have you gotten into flow yet? Tell me your greatest flow story! I was 12, playing local basketball...I couldn't miss a shot. I literally pulled up just across half-court and drained shots over and over--I was unstoppable. If you haven't reached flow lately, what do you think is blocking you the most? Leave a comment.
