Perhaps everyone knows how hard it is to maintain motivation… I went to cricket.
I have developed a method that I will share with you right now to help people stay motivated even when they are not interested. I have played baseball for 17 years, mostly in the pitching position. In the final season, I was selected to be the best team, honored to receive the typical male athlete of the university.
Just a few years ago, in the team that went from high school, I was the only one eliminated. After that, I had to play for the second team for the next time, until I got back to the starting lineup thanks to the good training results.
One thing that makes baseball different from other sports is the number of matches. In Major League Baseball, each team has to play 162 games a season, twice as many as the NBA or several times the NFL. Even high school teams have to play 40-60 matches a year.
vWith such a dense density, there will always be days when your body is tired, or your mind does not want to head to the game anymore. For that reason, I say baseball is very similar to life, when there are times when the things that matter to me become a burden.
This boot process takes about 20-25 minutes, and before every match I do the same.
The warm-up exercise not only helped me warm my body, but more importantly, also put me in the best mental state to play. Even before I wasn’t excited, after I started the game, I felt ready for the game ahead.
Pay attention to the experts in every field, you will see they have their own habits. An NBA athlete always makes the same gestures every time he throws a penalty, a comedian always says the same thing every time he goes on stage. Or a morning project always has a meeting before starting a working day.
I grew up and lived around Puerto Limon. It is a port city on the east coast of Costa Rica. My parents have eight children, and I am the seventh child. My father died when I was eight. Since then, my mother raised children alone.
Baseball has always been a part of my life. Since childhood I have loved this subject. I joined an amateur baseball team as a teenager. When I was playing on the baseball team, a recruiter asked me to join a professional team in Nicaragua.
But my mother was sick at the time and I was looking after her, so I did not want to move to Nicaragua. I declined the invitation. Later, another recruit invited me to play for Costa Rica’s national baseball team, consisting of selected members of the amateur team. This time I agree.
I’m good at playing golf and play pretty well, even playing 17 games in a row without making a mistake. I love the feeling of being cheered by my name!
Sadly, I lived a lecherous life. Although I have a girlfriend, I also have other lovers. I’m drunk too. Once I was so drunk that the next day I woke up in bed, I couldn’t remember how I got home! In addition, I also play lottery and place bets in dominoes.
While I lived like that, my mother became one of Jehovah’s Witnesses. She tried to make me pay attention to her beliefs but at first failed because I loved baseball. I can train all the time without feeling hungry! My mind is focused on this subject. I love baseball more than anything!
However, at 29 years of age, I was seriously injured when I tried to catch the ball in a match. After I recovered, I didn’t play in the professional team anymore. But I am still a part of the baseball team through training amateur players near my home.
