Brandon Guyer is a mental performance coach and former Major League Baseball player. The Guardian Baseball Mindset Collection brings many of his game-changing Mindsets to apparel.
During the Monday Mindset, Guardian Baseball and Brandon Guyer will be presenting a different Mindset every week to help you unlock your greatest potential. To succeed physically, you need to win mentally, too.
Today’s Mindset: See it, believe it, do it.
What it means:
“See it, believe it, do it” is a reminder that we must visualize our success to actualize it. For the best athletes, things happen twice: First in our minds, second in real life. Being able to visualize your success before performing helps bring it to life.
Who it’s for:
See it, believe it, do it is particularly for the athlete who struggles with confidence. While we can all benefit from this Mindset, athletes who are nervous or feel unprepared for competition can unlock a new understanding by learning to close their eyes, visualize what they’re about to do, truly believe it’s going to happen, and then perform.
What it looks like:
It’s the bottom of the ninth and it’s up to you to get a hit to drive in the runner on third. Your breathing is rattled, your palms are sweaty under your batting gloves, and fear pulls at your throat.
See it, believe it, do it means taking in the situation, closing your eyes, and visualizing yourself getting a hit – stepping up to the plate confidently and doing exactly what you need to do to help the team win. You know you can, you’ve been training for this. All your work leads to this.
And now, armed with new confidence, you go to the plate and make a play.
That’s what this mindset looks like. That’s how to compete at the highest level, even when you’re nervous or uncertain.
