Enjoy your sweat because hard work doesn't guarantee success, but without it you don't have a chance.

A Quote by Alexander Emmanuel (Alex) Rodriguez on confidence, grace, justice, kindness, preparation, success, and trying

This is how I define grace: You're on the main stage, and it looks like it has been rehearsed 100 times, everything goes so smoothly. That's where I get my confidence and success, from knowing that I have an edge because I know I'm prepared. You aren't scared of taking a test when you are ready for it. My first couple of years, I was just kind of swimming, trying not to drown, but now. . . .

A Quote by Alexander Emmanuel (Alex) Rodriguez on driving and people

Michael Jordan told me the way he kept the crown was by always outworking everyone else because he knew everyone was always coming after him. You can sneak up on people when you are 18, 19, 20. It's tougher when you're established. Before, I'd see 13, 14, 15 pitches that I could drive in a game. Now, I see one, two or three, so I have to be better.

A Quote by Alexander Emmanuel (Alex) Rodriguez on day, dogs, future, goals, learning, life, needs, past, people, play, present, and thinking

I'm focussing on what I haven't attained, not what I have. A lot has come to me early. I don't want to get consumed with that. Winners live in the present tense. People who come up short are consumed with future or past. I want to be living in the now. My goal is to play one full game in the now, but I haven't even gotten past the first inning yet. I start thinking about where my mom is or if my dogs have been fed. The average human has 2,000 thoughts a day. The really accomplished have 1,500 because you can focus longer. I need to learn how to focus longer.
