“Anyone can be average, not many can be great”- Cody Neer

When people say I can't and when others doubt me...

What is your definition of success?

When people say I can’t and when others doubt me. The fear of being average drives me internally. Anyone can be average, not many can be great.

None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? What lesson did you learn from them?

My parents for showing me what hard work meant and supporting my childhood dream of playing the sport of baseball. Which showed me that failing 7/10 times will get you in the Hall of Fame, but you must at least attempt something enough times to give yourself a chance to be great.

How do you push through your worst times?

A Sunday refresh at church and a simple day to thank the lord for giving me life and opportunity.
