Every at-bat in baseball is not just about competition.  Anyone can compete with varying degrees af intensity.  Remember competing is just the engine that drives you towards the ultimate goal which is…conquest!  And conquest is already determined well before the competition by how you plan and with that plan, convince yourself that the conquest has already been decided by what you WILL do, not what you think you are able to do.  With confidence, commitment, and focus on the proper execution that you know is needed to succeed, there are far less variables that will have an effect on how you will conquer what and who you are competing against!  “How fast can you run?  Fast as a leopard!  How fast are you going to run?  Fast as a leopard!  Then let’s see you do it!
