Life can really throw you some curve balls. Some days it’s seems like its a barrage of curve balls intermixed with knuckle balls, speed balls and few spit balls that splatter on you. What do you?  Do you stay in the batter’s box and keep swinging even when everything you hit seems to go foul?  Or do you find that a pitch or two goes by and you think to yourself “I should’ve hit that!”
How do you respond on those days when you are determined to stay in the batter’s box,  adjusting your swing, keeping your eye on everything thrown at you and the curve actually hits you? Oh it’s STINGS!  You recoil in pain, grumbling (maybe swearing) under your breath. The hit makes you step back  and regroup however, by staying in the box and taking the hit you are still able to move forward. Not the way you like to progress but still progress.
Mark Edwards said “You can’t control the curve balls life thows you, so you have to learn how to control yourself and change quickly to make sure the curve ball doesn’t know you out.”
Learning to control yourself is the real value of this crazy life experience. No matter what life throws at you, STAY IN THE GAME. Keep swinging. Learn to adjust to every pitch. Step out of the box for a moment and regroup then step back in ready to swing. Not all games are easy. Some games we loose and others we win but remember it’s the season that counts not a single game.

USAV Junior NationalsWe are enjoying day two of the USAV Nationals (Jr. Olympics). This morning the girls really struggled the first game. They were sluggish, slow to respond, and you could see in her face they just were not ready to play.

Game two was a completely different story! Their coach pulled them into a huddle. I’m not sure what she said, but you could see the fire in her face – motivating, inspiring, pushing the girls out of their current mindset.  They came on the court a different group. Things really got rolling when they won three serves in a row. Faces lit up, the pace quickened and they caught on fire.

It’s amazing what happens once you change your mind set. Cultivating little bit of HOPE and BELIEF that you can do it IGNITES a fire in your heart and your ATTITUDE changes. EARNING little wins BUILDS MOMENTUM. Once you have MOMENTUM it’s hard to stop success. Change your mindset and success will steamroll, building on itself, creating momentum that is difficult to stop until WINNING is an EXPECTATION not random luck.

No matter what it is, business, personal endeavors change your mindset and WIN!
