On this week’s episode, Andy discusses why he feels that he has finally “arrived” in the field of professional coaching.
Andy is now the official Mental Coach of…the Orange Beach Sharks.
• This is his son’s 13-14-year-old baseball team.
• He talks to the team before every practice and game.
At the beginning of the season, he talked about umpires with the team.
• The first thing they needed to know about umpires is that they’re kind of like TSA at the airport. You will not win an argument with them.
• You can, however, tick them off.
• Umpires are like brothers. If you tick them off, they won’t give you the benefit of the doubt on close calls.
Here’s the plan he gave the team:
• Other teams are going to go out on the field and say nothing to the umpires, unless they decide to complain.
• Andy told them to never, ever argue a call or roll their eyes.
• He told the team to talk to the umpires. Say hi and ask them how they’re doing. Ask them where they’re from.
This lesson with the team is a lesson that applies to life as well.
• If you treat people with kindness, things will generally work out better for you.
• You never know who knows the people who may in the position to give you a job or an opportunity one day.
