This is a primary key to success for any great hitter: you must learn to forget. When disappointment occurs, leave it behind. Wipe your memory bank clean and think “next time, I’ll succeed.” In essence, throw away the trash and detritus that want to reside in your psyche and attempt to poison your attitude. Empty the garbage. A task easier said than done – the reward is commensurate with the effort, however.
Take out the trash after every at-bat and find greatness in what remains. Stay clean and get great!
