There is a secret that Big League baseball players know about when it comes to being successful in this sport. It’s so effective and yet even the youngest most inexperienced player can use it to become a better baseball player. In fact young kids were probably the first to use this incredible baseball technique, and for whatever reason, circumstances have forced some baseball players to move away from this secret baseball approach.
Now let me present to you this secret approach……drum roll………
It’s very simple. After all the hard work, sacrifice, dedication, and labor, if you’re not having fun, it will not be worth it.
As a baseball player, how long do you think you will last in this game if you’re not enjoying the experience of strapping on a pair of cleats, and swinging a bat??!
Even for you baseball parent’s. Have you taken the time to remind you kids how important it is to simply have fun and enjoy themselves? It can be very easy to get caught up in results, winning, and losing. Have we forgotten about the process?
It’s about the journey. Not the destination.
Playing baseball is truly a privilege, and we would be doing a dishonor by not doing everything we can to show our gratitude.
The great thing about having fun is that joy gives you positive energy. Positive energy gives you confidence and confidence is everything! Do me a favor. If ever you find yourself struggling, or you are the parent of a player struggling, ask yourself this.
Are you forgetting to have fun?
Play baseball not in the past or future. Play it in this moment for it’s this moment that holds the potential for success. This moment is a gift, and that is why we call it the present.
