In the book What Makes Winners Win by Charlie Jones, baseball great Tony Gwynn recounts, “There were always coaches who said that I couldn’t do something. I couldn’t throw, I couldn’t hit with power, I couldn’t run, I couldn’t field my position. I think that’s one of the reasons I’ve been successful, because they can measure everything you do on the field, but they cannot measure what’s inside of you and what drives you. It’s easy to cheat yourself and do just enough to get by, but that’s what everybody can do, just enough to get by. But those who want to be successful and maintain that level of success have got to push a little bit harder and do a little bit more.”
