Extraordinary Happens Podcast

This week, on Extraordinary Happens Podcast I talk to Astros Shortstop Carlos Correa who reminded me how important confidence is when reaching for your dream. At just 21 years old, Carlos is the reigning American League Rookie of the Year with a record-breaking debut season, but it’s his extraordinary story about getting to Major League Baseball and his confidence to succeed that inspires me most.   Carlos grew up in Puerto Rico and at age five, his father took him to the ballpark for the first time. A few years later, he told his dad he needed to learn English so he could speak for himself when he made it to the big leagues. Carlos had a dream from a young age. He set goals for himself, did the work and expected success.

Carlos had an extraordinary breakout year. He is incredibly humble, yet at the same time, he’s unbelievably confident. He told me that his confidence comes from preparation and it helps him manage his emotions during the tougher moments of the game.
