"I played baseball for 17 years. I had incredible teammates. I spent thousands of hours practicing and training. And after my senior season, I was named an ESPN Academic All–American. It’s safe to say that being a baseball player was an important part of my identity. It gave me a sense of purpose. And then, one day, I graduated and my career was over.
As soon as I finished playing, I felt lost. On the outside everything looked fine. I went to graduate school. I graduated with my MBA. I started my first business. But on the inside, it seemed like I was wandering through life without a sense of direction. I did the things that were in front of me, but never with a sense of true conviction."
