“There have been times in my life when my family has been all over the map, spread out across different countries and time zones. But on a Friday night during the winter season, we all connect over a game. If we can’t physically be there, we mentally are - a good luck text before, a postgame recap after… and for that I am forever grateful.” (Excerpt from my book Everything I Got, available on Amazon. Link in bio.)
“Improving yourself and achieving success isn’t a solo endeavor. We all need a team to help us along the way. They can help and provide guidance during adversity, comfort us when we need support, celebrate us when we sometimes forget to, and, most importantly, teach us the lessons we wouldn’t have discovered on our own.” Excerpt from my newly released book Everything I Got, available now on Amazon (link in bio)!
“Take the game one step at a time. Momentum shifts feel big and powerful, but they are only as powerful as you make them. When momentum is working in your favor, feed that fire and let it carry you. If momentum shifts against you, apply friction. Stay focused on the task at hand, and don’t get too far ahead of yourself worrying about the result. . . If you can weather the storm and not get caught in the strong current produced by the emotional ups and downs that occur throughout the competition, the strongest force will not be the momentum, but you.” (Excerpt from my book AVAILABLE TOMORROW ON AMAZON, Everything I Got👊🏻)
“This is a game. While losing is no laughing matter, playing the game always should be. Results aside, the game should make you smile in between any fits of frustration or disappointing losses. It should make you laugh in between the mistakes you will inevitably make. As quickly as it can build up our hopes and our dreams, yes, this game can break our hearts. But if you don’t take it so seriously and you allow yourself to laugh, you will find a persistence, will, and joy that are indestructible.” (Excerpt from my upcoming book Everything I Got)
