Have you ever had or been that teammate who complains and blames? I have been that teammate. And I have had lots of them.
So let’s move to the remedy? February-April is the phase of development where I intentionally create an environment of pressure and stress in my Hitting Lab to prepare my hitters for competition and increase their skills.
Consider these four things about skills:
- Lack of skills can cause you to complain and blame because of shame
- Skills come from training rather than practicing
- Skills are things you repeatedly do without thought while under stress
- Skills pay the bills
What hitting skills do you have? How are going to develop the ones you need?
