Focus selects the programs that I run in my mind. When I select a program using the power of focus, I take control of my mind. Since I can run only one program at a time, when I run a positive one, the negative ones vanish.
I use the power of focus to push my mind in the direction of my dreams. The magic of focus is not hocus-pocus, and it’s not a trick. It’s the real thing. Focus unlocks the door of change and makes it possible to run positive programs in my mind.

I always tell parents to get a DVD made that shows highlights of games and full game action. So when the student athletes or parents are asked by a college coach if they can see the tape or DVD then they are ready to mail one. There are parents who don’t understand what I tell them and they’ll wait until the last minute to get the DVD made and mail it out. Big mistake parents!
Parents, you’re going to have to invest into the college recruiting process. When I advise some of the parents on this, it seems that they don’t hear me! Many parents sit back and wait to see what is going to happen in the recruiting process when they should act on the recruiting process.
These parents hold off because they don’t want to spend any money on anything, hoping that the college recruiting process will take care of itself. Another big mistake parents!
Many high school student athletes will also delay taking the SAT or ACT tests until the last minute thinking that they will score well on their first try. Big mistake everyone!
There are more high school student athletes who are not going to a Division 1 college program. These players need to get busy with the process of getting their names out there, but they don’t.
The point is that many athletes and parents are not doing what they should be doing and when things don’t work out they start blaming others!

As a college recruiter, I parents are always asking how to get my son or daughter recruited for college? My answer is: exposure. I believe the more college programs that see you play and that know where you are as a student athlete will ultimately increase your chances of being recruited. Now, that’s the simple solution.
The problem with this simple solution is consistency on the part of parents. The parents have to be the ones who make it happen in terms of making resources available to their student athlete in the family.
Camps cost money; equipment and supplies cost money; taking standardized tests cost money; travel expenses is money. Those are just some of the resources that parents can make available to their student athlete in their family.
