With pitchers & catchers reporting and baseball season on the horizon, I wanted to share something that I experienced during the offseason. I had the chance to interview Chance Adams.
Chance Adams is a top Yankees pitching prospect. I am sure we will be seeing him in the Bronx soon.
I know a lot of you aren’t going to know who this guy is, but I thought it was interesting that on a Saturday morning this guy was just so blunt in his answers, so raw. He’s just ready to go out there and pitch.
Think about how much easier things are when you don’t build up all kinds of expectations and put pressure on yourself and how simple things can be.
That’s what I took away from Chance Adams. He didn’t seem to be bothered by the challenges of trying to become a major league pitcher or playing for one of the most historically great sports franchises of all-time.
As Brene Brown says, "a good life is to be grateful for the ordinary moments while so many of us are steamrolling over trying to find those extraordinary moments."
I worked in a kitchen when I was growing up, 80-90 hours a week, at Camp Sussex. There’s a lot of opportunities like this. Is that work nothing?
