As seen (and heard!) on
fierce competitor
 
 
Raise your hand if you agree with this statement: “Athletes these days just don’t seem to be the fierce competitors we had back in my day.”
 
Yeah I think most of us will raise our hand on that one! I’ve had countless conversations with the frustrated coach saying “I can’t want this more than them!”
 
And while it’s absolutely a thing right now, and I’m sure there are many reasons why this is… the good news is: we can DEVELOP that competitive fire within our athletes!
 
Who better to show us how to do that than one of the fiercest competitors in our sport’s history, and someone who literally watches hundreds of games every year, observing and analyzing today’s athletes.
 
She’s a 2-time Olympic gold medalist, 5-time Hall of Fame inductee,  2-time Sportswoman of the Year and world-renowned ESPN analyst: Michele Smith!

Want more resources for developing fierce competitors?

So did we! That’s why we created the Dream Team Blueprint (which includes an entire course specifically on being Competitive.) You can implement the Blueprint yourself in the Softball Mental Training Toolkit or bring us in to consult with your team and address your specific needs!
 
 
That’s all for this week! Hope so see you back here soon!

Phenomenal information

As a new coach that believes in the mental game being so important, the podcasts and group discussions online have been amazing. Thank you ladies so much! Just knowing that the day to day struggles and doubts are felt by so many others has been remarkably reassuring. Thank you for what you are giving to others in the sport.

5 Star Podcasts!

I love listening to your podcasts while out on a run or on my way to work. They are focused and give me one or two pieces of inspiration to focus on with my team for the week. I have implemented a few key words (like "supportive") and have gotten huge returns from it! Keep up the great work!!

Mental Toughness

As a softball coach and a teacher, I appreciate all of the strategies and advice that Melanie shares each week! She is so inspiring, knowledgeable about the mental game, and willing to help in any way! One tip that really resonates with me is learning how to understand which things in life you are able to control, and what is out of your control. I teach these skills on the field and in the classroom! Thank you for all of the support and encouragement!

I love being part of the Mental Sweet Spot because it helps me think outside of the box to help our team grow mentally. I’ve noticed with the techniques and advice from Melanie and others in her Facebook Group I’ve help my team not only grow mentally but athletically as well. Mental toughness will help your team on the field as well and Melanie’s advice has proven that time and time again.
