I had the chance to work with Jim Murphy who was a big part of my mental approach to baseball and life—thanks Jim!
Jim’s a phenomenal coach. The work he’s done with athletes and teams, turning around careers, winning national championships, it’s amazing. He brings a presence to every team he works with. He’s such a great communicator—he seems to know the athletes better than they know themselves. I can’t say enough about Jim.
I’ve learned so much working with you, not just how to be the best athlete I can be, but how to truly live. Thank you for everything. I hope to continue our relationship long after my career is over.
Jim, Thanks so much for all you’ve done. I was just telling my wife what a huge impact you’ve had on the team. Your work with the guys has made a tremendous difference. The coaches and players all agree what a big help you’ve been.
Jim is one of those rare coaches who’s knowledge of strength and conditioning is equal to his knowledge and skill in coaching the mental part of the game.
Jim was a huge part of our national championship. He showed us how to shut off our minds, how to relax in pressure situations, and how to play with passion. I learned so much from him: how the mind works, how to become detached from the outcome, how to stay in the now, and all the things that prevent me from doing that. Jim is an amazing coach—I can see why he’s so successful.
Before I started working with Jim I was ready to quit golf. Now I’m having the time of my life.
I really want to tell you that I thought you did a fantastic job last year and that you really, really helped me, most notably towards the end of the season.
You really opened up some eyes. You’ve really got a good thing going.
We couldn’t have done this without you. Thanks for everything.
