He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life.

-Muhammid Ali
Tell me…..how frustrating does it feel to look at a called third strike? Or to swing and miss on a pitch that you should of crushed. Striking out is never a pleasant experience, but as a hitter you have to realize one thing. Striking out is essential. You have to fail in order to succeed.

The moment you can take each failure and use it as a stepping stone. Not allowing your emotions affect your approach, you will not only have an advantage over your opponent,
but also the players your competing against for playing time.

You have to respond to failure with empowerment.

With each failure, you actually grow more confident.

Can you do this? Can you swing, miss, fail,and continue on.

Keep fighting.
