I can’t remember where I heard it, but the thought that we don’t attract what we want, we attract what we habitually do and what we believe is ringing loud in my mind, as I watch players give up on the season during this global pandemic.
As I travel throughout the world of baseball one the things I consistently have noticed is, our outer world will always be a reflection of our inner world. EVERYONE WANTS TO WIN. EVERYONE WANTS TO GROW. Very few are willing to do what it takes.
Now is the time to focus, re-shape, erase, and build back our routines for a more successful tomorrow. It’s the time to, “stay ready, so you don’t have to get ready!”
The organizations around the world which focus on personal development, as well as player development seem to be on the cutting edge of the next level in terms of wins and losses, as well as success.
How you wake up each day and your morning routine (or lack thereof ) dramatically affects your levels of success in every single area of your life. Focused, productive, successful routines generate focused, productive, successful days—which inevitably create a successful life—in the same way that unfocused, unproductive, and mediocre mornings generate unfocused, unproductive, and mediocre days, and ultimately a mediocre quality of life.
Having a routine and then fine-tuning that routine allows you to take your self to the next level so you can take your success to the next level (because it only happens in that order).
If your routines and results are inconsistent, and you consistently accept far less than your best, you are going to find yourself in mediocrity. To reach the upper echelons you are going to have to find a way to overcoming mediocrity: Creat routines that have a of purpose and when they don’t work, go back to the drawing board until you get it right.
Every time you choose to do the easy thing, instead of the right thing, you are shaping your identity. When you make a commitment to create and fine tune a routine today and hold yourself accountable, you start becoming the extraordinary player you really want to become.
The million dollar question you need to ask yourself each night as you set your head on the pillow is, “what did you set out to deliberately do today to become that person?”
