It’s a New Year, which means there will be new challenges and opportunities for 2023 for you.
- What do you hope for in the new year?
- What do you pray about?
- What do you dream about?
If it’s God’s will, you will accomplish everything on your list. It may also be His will for you to grow mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually by way of adversity.
Let me give you something new that you can add to your list. It is something you can never get enough of. It will guide you on and off the field. It will be your saving grace when your on field baseball career is over.
Wisdom. You can never have enough wisdom.
Knowledge is the result of gaining information plus experience. And experience plus good judgement is wisdom.
You can find a good coach to give you information. Taking what you learn and applying it on the field in games is experience. But one of the things that separates elite players from the rest is their ability to make good judgments.
Elite players and elite people make commitments and discipline themselves to get things to die because they have to and not because they always want to.
- Intentional practice reps
- Intentional practice time
- Rest and recovery
- Studying pitchers (pitch types, speeds, locations, delivery, etc.)
- Strength training (mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual)
These are six things that wise hitters make a habit of.
Are you wise?
Remember, skills pay the bills.
