Lessons from Yogi Berra

Yogi Berra passed away on September 22, 2015 at the age of 90 years old.  He will be missed not only for his dedication to baseball but because of his great attitude and memorable quotes.   

Here are a few I LOVE!  
"Ninety percent of this game is half-mental." 

"If you can't imitate him, don't copy him."

"Little things are big."

"The future ain't what it used to be."

He had great insight into what makes life worth living - a good attitude.  

"I think your life depends on your attitude.  How you face things says a lot about you and about how people treat you, a lot about what you can do and can't do, a lot about your happiness or unhappiness.  You are what you think: maybe that's why some people need attitude adjustments."

We should take some time to appreciate life and know that we are more in control that we really think.  We are in control of our own attitude and behaviors!  

So here's one final quote I think is a great lesson learned from Yogi:

The video below is the dragonfly on Shaun Marcum's Mets hat - and YES I really did know it was a Mets hat when I made this picture quote - I'm pretty sure that Mr. Berra will forgive me!
