What does this mean? #TrustTheProcess

What does this mean? I really don't get it but apparently others do and I hope someone can explain it to me...

That sounds as good as anything that I can figure out.

When I read it the first time, the only thing I could come up with was it was from a group of people that played scoreless t-ball games and everyone won trophies.

I was always taught to strive to be the best and to measure yourself against others to help you improve.

Eh. Just something a coach thought up that was genius as, you know, every team has to have a slogan these days.

A team with no slogan has no chance to win.


Still better than, wait for it, UNDEFEATED after your regular season....

This sounds more like the rationale for the slogan, Stay In The Moment, rather than Trust The Process.

"Trust The Process"

A fancy way of saying "BUY WHAT WE ARE SELLING."

To me it means no shortcuts to success, you might struggle to learn the proper way to do things,(fundamentals) but learn them and success will come.

Next shot mentality. Ask Roger Federer. Your past results dont matter, all that matters is in the present.

I think it means: focus on the steps it takes to be successful and do not get hung up on the results. For example, work on your swing path, do your hands drill correctly, get your footwork correct on throws across the diamond. Focus on your pitching mechanics.. and the results will take care of themselves. However, I have not seen too many high schools practice proper techniques and at a certain point results matter. Like in the State Tourney.

I had a great coach growing up, and he would always tell us; “learn to play the right way and winning will take care of itself”.

I think of that every time I hear someone say trust the process.

I would agree with the past few posts. Trust the process would be helping an athlete focus on the things they can control and to not worry about the things that they do not have control over. Ken Ravizza and Tom Hanson's book, "Heads up Baseball, 2.0" is a good recent example of teaching baseball players how to focus on the process. Most MLB teams have mental skills coaches and helping MLB players focus on the process is a main part of what mental skills coaches focus on. John Wooden’s coaching would also be a good example of coaching that was focused on helping athletes focus on the process.

Wooden is a great reference. I thought of my coaches line after hearing that coach Wooden never talked about the importance of winning, but playing your best.

I’m not sure how accurate that is, but I know it was mentioned by several of his former players.

This video is what I think of when I hear "Trust the Process." It's more about the daily grind, the finer details in the day-to-day focus a team and each player must maintain to continue to get better.

You are correct. There is a great Ted Talk video in which Wooden talks about the process and not mentioning winning. Here is the link:



Also, in baseball, Joe Maddon of the Cubs talks a lot about helping his athletes stay focused on the process. Here is a link to a video in which Maddon talks about the importance of the process:

I have talked to many high school coaches this year and I get a sense that they feel like they don't have time for this philosophy. I think that they are wrong and once they implement it in their program (if they have one), they would be surprised at the results.

"Trust the Process" is an idea that sometimes in baseball- your results do not always match your process. Your batting average is not dependent on how well you hit the ball (sometimes it depends on the scorekeeper ) . Sometimes, a line drive is caught even though you had your best swing possible). Sometimes a batter will hit you hard even though you made your best pitch). The overall idea is that you need to be more aware of what you are doing instead of what happens.

Shifting one's focus from the outcome to the process is a sport psychology strategy. Like some have said above, it's about breaking down the components of behavior--focusing on doing things that you have control over and doing them correctly. It is very helpful in focus, performance, and anxiety management
