I am blessed to have the opportunity to coach my son Ryan’s baseball team. The UA Sharks are twelve boys who just finished the 5th grade and are on the verge of boys becoming men. It’s a subtle mixture of tears and testosterone.
The bad news is they are far from “professionals” when they step on the field.
The good news is…no one expects them to be.
They are just 11-year-old boys playing a summer sport to see if it might be something they will pursue as they get older. Some of these boys will excel at soccer or basketball or football. Some might find out they are better at the “scholar” part of the term “scholar athlete” as they continue to develop and grow older and that is awesome too.
There are just three things I expect out of my boys when they take the field for practice or a game and winning or losing aren’t any of the three.
The 3 H’s
I tell the boys each night before we take the field for a game or any afternoon we are out there to practice that all I want from them is to show me the 3 H’s;
- Play Hard
- Have Fun
This short promotional video from the folks at Dick’s Sporting Goods kind of sums it up.
Are You Ready to Take the Field?
I’ve said it many times in this blog that you can’t hit home runs if you never swing the bat. Aren’t you ready to start swinging for the fences in your career and your life?
Isn’t it time that you get noticed for the awesome professional you are?
As a real estate agent, branch manager, company broker or owner or anyone looking to “become better” at life than you were yesterday, how are you looking for ways to hustle, play hard and have fun?
Grab a helmet and get ready.
You’re up next!
