EP. 22 Developing Mental Toughness: Life lessons from the baseball field with Tyler Rahmatulla

Today, we have a VERY special guest…Tyler Rahmatulla, Stephanie’s son and Kayla’s brother!

Tyler is a husband, father of 3 boys (and another one on the way), and former professional baseball player. He played all through his childhood in to his adult years – from Mater Dei High School, UCLA and ultimately playing for the St. Louis Cardinals’ minor league teams. In this episode, he talks with us about the life of a collegiate and professional athlete and how it demands a mental toughness in order to be successful.

 Throughout Tyler’s baseball career he worked with some incredibly wise mentors, coaches and fellow athletes. Along the way he learned lessons of “mental toughness” that he put to use on the field and continues to implement in his daily life today.

Among those mentors was Ken Ravizza, a sport psychologist, who played a major role in changing Tyler’s mental game for the better. He consulted with countless athletes and helped them reach peak performance  - all starting with their mind.

 “Destructive little voices in your head are often fueled by destructive emotions. Try to turn off your emotions and think logically”- Ken Ravizza

Some topics we cover:

  • Confidence vs conceit
  • Preparation / planning
  • Control the controllables
  • Being Present

Tyler also hosts a podcast: The Brushback Baseball Podcast

It covers all things baseball, baseball, and more baseball. Tyler and co-host David Klein (avid Dodgers fan, stat memorizer, and semi-pro baseball historian) are at opposite ends of the baseball spectrum but use this dialog to share each unique perspective. They aim to share weekly discussions of MLB news, life/mindset of a ballplayer, the business side of baseball and interviews with players, coaches, and everybody in between.

You can find them on Apple Podcasts, SpotifyYouTube, & Instagram.
