    Jesse's Bio:
    I graduated in 2015 with a B.S. in Exercise Physiology and am now in the Doctorate of Physical Therapy program here at CSS. I played on the baseball team at CSS for four years. I was also a statistics tutor and currently work as personal care assistant in Duluth. I love the outdoors, hunting fishing, hiking, etc. While being at St. Scholastica I have noticed the “family” atmosphere and I am truly enjoying every second of it.

Visualizing Success

This blog is a shout out to one of my assistant coaches, Tom Berrisford. The other day, during our team meeting at the end of practice, the coaches went around talking about how practice went and adding in little comments. When it got to Coach Tommy, he talked about how we need to start visualizing success. He recommended that each night we go to bed and visualize four at bats against our next opponents, pitch by pitch, and having successful results.

The more I thought about this idea, the more I really liked it. I also thought how this doesn’t have to only be a part of my life in athletics but why not in my academics, work, or even relationships.  Why not, of course along with studying, visualize succeeding on your test? If you have an interview coming up, why not visualize the interview going well? If you are giving a project presentation, why not visualize that going well?

I’m almost positive that the most successful people do this. I’ve been doing it the past few days and to be completely honest, I’ve had some of the best few days of practice. What I think is pretty neat about this idea, is that I dictate the outcome, the atmosphere, the situation, etc. I can set the stage however I want it to be. With presentations, exams, and interviews obviously you have to be realistic but it can’t hurt to visualize yourself doing well. I feel like this is similar to practice/rehearsal just more so mental preparation instead.

I challenge everyone to try this out with whatever situation they have coming up soon…presentation, meeting, exam, games, etc. Who knows maybe your daily success is just a few visualizations away.

Thanks Tommy B!
