We want to thrive, not just survive
We don't go into a game with the thought that we are just trying to get through the last inning or reduce the damage. We want to dominate. We need to be committed.
In order for the team to be as successful as we can be, we have to be different
To succeed we have to be different, we can't just mimic our opponent and do what they do. We need to be better, we need to work harder. We have to figure out ways to be successful. You need to have the expectation that you can win every game.
You need to prepare now for when it really matters
This is just the beginning of the season. You have to prepare from day one, and it's going to take a lot of work to be as great as you can be. A lot of player who think they are perfect from day one when the reality is that they are working at maybe 30% of their potential. At the end of the season, you will be a totally different athlete.
What are your hope and dreams and how do you get there
Do you want to play in college? Do you want to play in the pros? Do you want to be on one of the most elite teams in the country? Do you want to join the junior national team. That is not going to happen by accident. If you want to achieve these dreams you have to live it. You have to show up with your game face on for practice.
You cannot be scared of the process
If you are not willing to follow they process then all of this is just a ludicrous dream. Having process allows you to back engineer a plan to get you where you want to be. If having a process and working hard to achieve it doesn't scare you, the sky is the limit. You can get that scholarship, do Division I, but you've got to pay the price.
See how Alabama head football coach Nick Saban utilizes "the Process" to drive his success.
You have to be willing to pay the price for success
You were not selected to be on this team because you want to be a bench warmer. Dreaming big, knowing the coaches of the school you want to play for, knowing the player who's in that position now, that says you're ready. It will be tough, but you will see the results.
