Whether an athlete or an ordinary man, confidence allows us to achieve the unachievable. However, there are instances when individuals require additional motivation to reclaim their lost confidence. The same was valid with the Houston Astros’ third baseman Alex Bregman. He and his team needed motivation to bounce back from the series sweep and face the Texas Rangers next. And Deion Sanders’ unwavering self-belief mantra not only served as a guiding light for Bregman but also promises to be our compass in navigating the twists and turns of life’s journey.

The message was so inspiring that the Buffaloes defeated a strong team, surprising everyone. And Bregman became the latest beneficiary from it.
