Stars… They’re just like us! Even though Nick Swisher is an MLB World Series Champion and successful Fox Sports Analyst, he has struggled with adversity and overcoming major obstacles that could have negatively affected his career and personal life had he not developed a mindset that allowed him to persevere.
He was able to find another another way up the mountain because if know Nick Swisher, then you know he’s the kind of guy who loves life. Even when dealing with challenges, he stays focused on what drives him, like how much he loves his family and of course baseball! His passion and positive attitude is always turned on. And it isn’t an act, that’s the authentic Nick Swisher!
In this episode, Nick tells us how hard work and passion for the game of baseball took him all the way to the New York Yankees and even a 2021 nomination to the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame.
He admits some of his fears of having a family full of women, and how he learned (and even researched!) how to be the best father, husband, son, and grandson he could be.
It was advice from a coach early in his career, that really set him up for his journey, giving him permission to lose the pressure and instead, enjoy the game. And even though he’s retired from playing, that mindset has set him on a path to inspire young players as well as anyone else who will listen.
