Lesson 9: Optimism

There are only two lenses through which you can view your future: the lens of optimism or pessimism. Optimism is the only lens of choice.

Lesson 10: Confidence

Confidence comes from YOU, no one can provide you with it.


My son had not played little league before. At tryouts, he sobbed and told me he never wanted to go on another baseball field for the rest of his life. Then he met his coach, Coach Emmons.

Coach Emmons eased my son’s fears, as well as mine. He helped give my son the courage to just try. That’s all he asked. Because of Coach Emmons, or Coach JA, as the kids call him, I’ve watched my son grow both as a player, and as a human. He has a newfound confidence that I have prayed he would find somewhere in his life. He’s no longer an anxious, scared little boy, but a confident young man, that looks forward to going out on the field every time. I can never thank Coach Emmons enough for helping my son and encouraging him. Even when mistakes are made, he finds a way to make the experience positive and help the kids learn from it.
