Phil Hughes is an All-Star and World Series Champion with the New York Yankees. I spoke with Phil on Tuesday at South Street Seaport in New York City for Day 2 of the Yankees’ HOPE Week.

I asked Hughes what he does when he has a bad day.

“I call my dad,” Hughes responded with a laugh.

I followed up with, “Do you ever have a negative voice inside your head?”

“Oh yeah, I do,” said Hughes.

“We ALL do,” chimed in pitcher, Steve Garrison.

“You have to have a short-term memory,” Hughes added.

What does this mean for you?

If an All-Star and World Champion gets negative, it’s okay if YOU get negative.

The key is to be like Phil and let it go and move on. You can certainly LEARN from the past, but you shouldn’t LIVE in the past.

Be like Phil Hughes today!
