Jim Abbott’s (Angels /Yankees pitcher) – Believing in my self
I worked very hard. I felt I could play the game. The only thing that could stop me was myself.

A handicap can slow us down or it can make us more determined to succeed. Jim used his disability as an asset. True competitor’s use a common mindset based on the premise to never give up or give in.
“I don’t, in anyway way, want to use my hand as an excuse for any difficulties I had on the mound. Until the day I retired, I always believed that there was a way to get things done, no matter what the circumstances were.”
