The concept of being a prospect deals with your future. Are you a prospect? If you answered yes, what is your pursuit? Pursuit deals with the why, what and who.
Why do you want to be recognized as a prospect? When I was in the Minor Leagues with the Chicago Cubs, I wanted to become recognized as a prospect because it set me a part from the hundreds of other players in the organization. Being a prospect also meant you were on track to becoming a Major Leaguer.
As the old saying goes, you have to be careful what you ask for because you might just get it. And if you get it and it can’t be sustained by core values such as humility, integrity and loyalty, it will not last.
What are you doing to become a prospect and who is leading the pursuit for you? Becoming a prospect is more than just wanting it to happen and hitting every now and then. As we know, there are seven parts of the swing and it takes 3,000 reps to build a habit. That’s 21,000 reps.
