Deliberate Practice

Win More: What the PED Scandal Means to You

Today, major-league baseball is handing down suspensions to players it believes have taken steroids. New York Yankees star Alex Rodriguez is the most prominent name.

I have no first-hand knowledge of who did or did not take these drugs, but I do know this: Your decisions are your destiny.

You are today the product of your decisions. What you eat, the people with whom you associate, what you do in school or in the gym or on the job are all things that you choose.

Whether you are a high school athlete or a pro, you decide when you will get to practice and how hard you will work when you get there. You decide whether to grow or stay in your comfort zone.

The longer I live, the more I see that life is a choice. So is skill. And so is success. Good choices are the bedrock of a strong mental game.

When the suspensions come down, in their heart of hearts these players will wonder where their decisions have taken them.

What decisions will you make today?
