Jim Bouton on the Secret of Success

Back in 2006, I had former Yankees pitcher, Jim Bouton, come out to my conference to give a speech to the crowd.

Shawn Collins and Jim BoutonI had been a longtime fan of Jim’s book, Ball Four, and I love hearing the first hand accounts of the 1960’s Yankees.

So, it was an exciting thing for me to have Jim come out to speak.

I had a chance to walk around with him before the speech and hear a bunch of old stories. Some were in Ball Four, others were not, but all of them were fun to hear straight from him.

We recorded the entire speech, but he asked us to only share an excerpt. This is one of my favorite parts of his 45 minutes or so that he spoke to us that day.
