Revisit the Past- Just Don't Stay too Long.


I believe it is important to look into the past and remember the lessons you learned as well as reflect on the things you loved. The past is important, but you can't stay there. You cannot live your life based on the things you did in the past, but you can look back and learn.

-

When it comes to my past, I am proud of the work I put in just to become a minor leaguer. It helped shape my life. The work I did then is what I look back on the most. Some would think I try to remember the great times, game winning hits, celebrations, etc. That would be false. I love to look back and remember what it felt like to sweat in the 90 degree heat while I ran sprints down my dirt driveway.

-

I love to look back and remember how much it burned when I was doing lunges in the front yard or plyo's using a bench, my Dad's Beer Cooler and a lawn chair. I enjoy the hard work more than I enjoyed the result. I love to look back and remember the sacrifices I made to better myself. The journey was so important to me, and the memories of the journey are what I think about the most.

-

Although I look back often, I do not stay there long. I look back to remember the lesson learned and to apply that lesson to my life today. Often times when things are slow at work, I look back and say what would the 19 year old me do. Honestly, the 19 year old me would have just went to work and Hustled til it Happened.

-

I am smarter now than I was then but the work ethic of the younger me drives me to continue to compete on a daily basis. If I can put in the work the 19 year version of myself put in, there isn't much that can stop me.

Maybe your story is similar or maybe it is much different, but the fact remains, the past is important, it is equally important you don't live in it, but please be sure to stop by and check in.
