" To achieve it, you have to KNOW it in your HEAD and BELIEVE it in your HEART."
Written in 2005 by L. Schmitt --- QLD, Australia
I used this as a main theme when I was doing a motivational speech for some developing players in my sport. The more and more I thought about it, I realized that it was right, and I had to start believing in myself before I could tell other kids this and it changed my attitude towards training and my own success.June 29, 2005

This was said to us going into the bottom of the ninth of the consolation championship game at STATE. We were down 8-1 and we played as a team and came back and won 9-8, while doing this after our first two batters were called out...it was an amazing quote that motivated me.June 8, 2005
Here's the difference between a Champion and Others:

" A champion, when he fell, always got back up and tried even harder. He slowed down over the speed bumps and hit a pothole now and then, but each time, he kept going. He didn't care how bad it hurt or hard he had to try. Others, on the other hand, when they fell, stayed there. Maybe tried to get up and kept falling and didn't try to get up anymore. Stopped at the speed bumps and fell into the potholes. Quit when he hurt and was tired. If you want to be a champion, try and try again. Never let your hopes slip out of your hands."

" We plan more but accomplish less. Don't be a background observer ... be an active player. Don't wait for a personal invitation to speak your mind cause you'll never know until you try.
