Baseball is a game of failure. It will also teach you many valuable lessons about life. Imagine failing at 70% of everything you do. How would you deal with it? Welcome to the life of a baseball player. In baseball, getting a hit 3 out of every 10 at-bats is considered successful. In fact, so successful, numerous Major League Baseball players have been inducted into the baseball Hall of Fame at the end of their career for getting a hit 3 out of every 10 at-bats (failing 70% of the time). However, baseball is not the only place failure is experienced. In life, there are many challenges, obstacles, and failures that we must overcome as well. There are many ways to deal with challenges and overcoming failure. No matter how you go about dealing with these challenges, there is one key component you must have, or develop to overcome these obstacles: Mental Toughness. Not only is mental toughness important in baseball; we need to be mentally tough in life too.
