Championship Thinking in Sports – How Well Do You Use Your Four Gifts From birth?

You, me, everyone as human beings receive these four powerful, wonderful gifts from birth:
1.Self-Awareness=knowledge of our individuality as well as our past, present and days ahead,
2.Free Will=capability to make choices, 3.Conscience=the inner sense of what is right or wrong in both motives and action, and 4.Creative Imagination=ability to invent; to bring something new into existence (technical, social, economic, etc.). In my work with businesses, schools and sports organizations, I teach these four gifts in workshops, formal presentations and one-on-one advising/coaching. This is the core of Championship Thinking skill development. This show brings these gifts alive with two examples: 1.Guest Bob Oettinger*, president of the International Baseball Association (IBA) and vice president of its non-profit arm, International Baseball Academy of Central America (IBACA).shares how IBACA is promoting the growth of baseball throughout the world through the construction of baseball academies/schools facility in Nicaragua. Former major leaguers Reggie Smith, Dave Stewart, Brad Lesley, Frank White and Kelly Stinnett are involved with the organizations. 2.How a runner on 1st base uses his self-awareness, free will, conscience and creative imagination to decide to steal 2nd base, or not. *Bob has worked in corporate and non-profit management, fund raising, planning, public relations and promotions for more than 25 years. He holds a bachelor’s degree in history and a master’s in public relations from the University of Southern California.
