I love this blog and I’m grateful for those that read it and support me. I’m always hopeful of impacting someone’s baseball career in a positive manner. It’s what I do. I could care less about the team and winning games, raising money, holding a trophy, looking cool, or saying the right things at the right times. I do care about teaching effective techniques that can gain the individual an advantage in competition, developing athleticism within the individual, and creating an attitude that exudes confidence at all times. I truly believe that learning and understanding the game from the physical to the mental is the key to success. Also, understanding that baseball is an individual sport and your success will be defined by your individual performance in the long run. You will not be judged on what team you are on but how you perform as an individual when it is your time to perform. People spend too much time complaining about a negative than they do exploring ways to create a consistent positive. What I just said, means this: Too often we want success without putting in the work, effort, and understanding. When you see success in a game as hard as baseball, you can rest assure that it’s the result of hard work, training, learning, and understanding the technique that has made you successful. Of course this means nothing unless we do it on a consistent basis. After all, in baseball we are judged on averages, consistency, and the ability to persevere amongst all the failure that we encounter. The best baseball players fail the least, when we truly understand what that means we can develop and prosper.
