Daily Dose of Coach #322: Think on This - Confidence is Earned

“Confidence comes from discipline and training." -Robert Kiyosaki

There's a story I love about the baseball legend, Ty Cobb. When he was seventy years old a journalist was interviewing him for a story.

The journalist asked, "What do you think you'd hit if you were playing these days?"

Keep in mind, Cobb who was as lifetime .367 hitter. Cobb said, "About .290, maybe .300."

The journalist said, " Oh, that's because of the extended travel, the night games, the turf, and new pitches like the slider, right?"

"No," Cobb said, "It's because I'm seventy."

Self confidence is not something we're born with, it's something we earn. The great John Wooden said, "Confidence, like poise, is earned only by tenaciously pursuing and attaining those assets that allow you to reach your own level of competency."

And there will be no greater characteristic that will determine your success, happiness, health and income.
