THE ONLY SPORTS PSYCHOLOGY WORKBOOK THAT’S EXCLUSIVELY DESIGNED FOR SOFTBALL PLAYERS TO BUILD MENTAL TOUGHNESS AND BOOST THEIR ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE <br /><br />Players hear it all the time… <br />"Softball is 90% Mental, and 10% Physical” <br />"It's All in Your Head" <br />"The Only One that Can Stop You is You" <br />"You have to be Mentally Tough!"<br /> <br />But what exactly do those sayings mean??? Without something concrete, it's difficult for players to understand what it specifically takes to have a mental approach primed for success. <br /> <br />And rather than have a debate with someone who knows nothing about mental training or sports psychology... or read about theories and mental hacks that may or may not work off some random website...why not use a detailed, interactive, and engaging workbook that shows and teaches athletes how specific Sports Psychology concepts directly impact their performance on the softball field? <br /> <br />That's exactly what you've found here! <br /> <br />Through 10 Dynamic Exercises... we take athlete's on a journey through the Most debilitating Mental and Emotional Obstacles faced by the Vast Majority of Competitors including: <br /><br />-Decreased Levels in Motivation <br />-Lack of Goal-Setting Capability<br />-Suppressing Unwanted Thoughts<br />-An Inability to get "In a Zone"<br />-Experiencing Overwhelming Pre-Game Jitters, Nerves, and Anxiety<br />-Overcoming Serious and Debilitating Injuries<br />-Zero Formal Education of Necessary Mental Skills such as Mental Imagery and Self-Talk<br />-Playing without Confidence<br />-Not Being Able to Focus when it Matters Most <br /><br />When Athletes Suffer and become Victim to one or multiple issues mentioned above...it becomes Incredibly Difficult for them to maintain a positive frame of mind not only in sports but in life in general. And unfortunately in society today all athletes are under the spot light as they are judged by many of their friends, family, and peers by the level of success they have on the field, which makes it absolutely crucial for athletes to be mentally tough and resilient. <br /> <br />Thus, after completing our workbook athletes will undoubtedly be equipped with the Mental Tools to: <br /> <br />1. Develop Supreme Confidence in their Skills and Abilities to Flourish <br />2. Build Mental Toughness and Resilience to Overcome Obstacles <br />3. Learn to Handle Intense Pressure and Paralyzing Adversity <br />4. Conquer their Crippling Fears and Severe Anxiety <br />5. Be Mentally Ready to Compete and Dominate their Competition <br />6. Come Back from Injury Better and Stronger than Before <br />7. Be Overflowing with Motivation and Surpass their Athletic Goals <br /> <br />Whether you’re a male or female athlete looking for ways to improve your skills and ability (middle school, high school, or collegiate skill level)…A coach or trainer in search of avenues to improve your teams performance…or a parent trying to help your son or daughter accomplish their goals and dreams…THIS IS THE WORKBOOK YOU'VE BEEN SEARCHING FOR! <br /> <br />Choking Under Pressure During Crucial Moments of a Game, Sitting on the Bench Game after Game despite All your Hard Work and Effort, Becoming accustomed to Losing Over and Over, not Stepping Up when the team Needs it Most, and being Unable to see any Progress toward Improving and Reaching Success can be EXTEMELY PAINFUL, DISAPPOINTING, and DISCOURAGING. This STOPS TODAY! Fulfill your Potential, and Finally Play Great the way you've Always Envisioned. <br /> <br />Available in Kindle and Paperback Edition<br />

“<i>A League of Their Own</i> for the softball set” (Lily Koppel, bestselling author of <i>The Astronaut Wives Club</i>), <i>Fastpitch</i> is hidden history at its most intriguing—the tale of the forgotten beginnings of one of the most popular and widely played sports today.<BR><BR>Softball is played by tens of millions in various age groups all around the world, but the origins of this beloved sport (and the charismatic athletes who helped it achieve prominence in the mid-twentieth century) have been shrouded in mystery…until now.<BR> <BR><i>Fastpitch</i> brings to vivid life the eclectic mix of characters that make up softball’s vibrant 129-year history. From its humble beginnings in 1887, when it was invented in a Chicago boat club and played with a broomstick, to the rise in the 1940s and 1950s of professional-caliber, company-sponsored teams that toured the country in style, softball’s history is as varied as it is fascinating. Though it’s thought of today as a female sport, fastpitch softball’s early history is full of male stars, such as the vaudeville-esque Eddie Feigner, whose signature move was striking out batters while blindfolded.<BR> <BR>But because softball was one of the only team sports that also allowed women to play competitively, it took on added importance for female athletes. Women like Bertha Ragan Tickey, who set strikeout records and taught Lana Turner to pitch, and her teammate Joan Joyce, who struck out baseball star Ted Williams, made a name—and a life—for themselves in an era when female athletes had almost no prospects. Softball allowed them to flourish, and they in turn inspired a whole new generation of athletes.<BR> <BR>Featuring eight pages of captivating, vintage photos and compelling, well-researched historical commentary, this “fun and entertaining read” (Billie Jean King) chronicles softball’s unique history as well as its uncertain future (as evidenced by its controversial elimination from the 2012 Olympics, and the mounting efforts to have it reinstated). A celebration of this distinctively American game and the role it plays in our culture today, Westly has written “a must-read for anyone who loves the sport” (Jonathan Fader, author of <i>Life as Sport</i>).
