HEADS UP SOFTBALL

1) Take responsibility for your thoughts and actions
2) Be on a mission; Know why you play softball, what character traits you want to possess and what you want to accomplish in the game.
3) Play one pitch at a time; confident and focused on each pitch as it is played with disregard for past or future pitches.
4) Make your daily actions consistent with your mission.
5) Realize that you cannot control what happens around you but you can control your response to it, and that you be in control of yourself before you can control your performance.
6) Develop your mental skills so you constantly perform near the best of your ability and you have "something to go to" when adversity strikes.
7) Practice what you are going to do in the game
8) Focus on the process of playing the game rather than the outcomes of your performance
9) Learn each day
10) Keep it simple!
