Do you understand how finances can impact you mentally and physically in a positive and negative way?
Let’s talk about your money. Money is more dangerous than you might think.
There are so many stories of people blowing their money, either because they spent it on stupid things,
or they couldn’t say no when friends and family members asked them for money. It’s easy to make the mistake if you’re not careful, if you don’t understand the impact of your finances. I know you love the game, but the ultimate goal is to make and save enough money to take care of you and
your family for years to come.
Even guys with the huge contracts need to be careful. The people around you don’t know this. They automatically think, since you’re playing baseball, you’re making money. You and I know know that that’s not the case. But even the idea that you’re making money has an impact. Your potential to make money has an impact on you and yourself. You may buy and spend all your potential future earnings, and there are enough people willing to allow you to do that.
Think of the unnecessary stress you just added to your life, family and friends, wanting things just under your potential. But what if it doesn’t pan out? What if you’re not doing the things to put you in the position to earn the money that you should be not taking care of your body, getting injured,
dealing with more stress?
Remember, no one is looking out for you except you.
