IS CURT SCHILLING HIS OWN WORST ENEMY, AND IS HE RESPONSIBLE FOR CREATING THE NEGATIVE EVENTS IN HIS PERSONAL LIFE?
Posted August 29, 2013on:
It’s been said that you can easily judge the character of others by how they treat those who can do nothing for them or to them. Former major league baseball pitcher Curt Schilling might be a prime example. My understanding is (and I could be wrong) that when he was a player he treated others around him badly and was not well-liked by his teammates. If true, then what is happening in his personal life now would be an excellent example of the psi factor at work. The psi factor (Psycho Self-Imagery) maintains basically that “what goes around comes around” and that people who treat other people badly will eventually have to pay the piper. According to an article in USA Today: “A Rhode Island judge is allowing most of a state agency’s lawsuit against ex-major league pitcher Curt Schilling and executives at his failed video game company to move forward. Superior Court Judge Michael Silverstein on Wednesday issued a 99-page decision that allows the state Economic Development Corp. to sue Schilling, former 38 Studios executives, former EDC officials and others, saying they misled the agency’s board into approving a $75 million state loan guarantee for the company. The company filed for bankruptcy last year, leaving the state on the hook for more than $100 million.” If Schilling loses the lawsuit, he will probably have to file for personal bankruptcy.
I’m always on the lookout for talented athletes with high self-esteem because they are the ones who perform close to their skill levels on a consistent basis. And one of their characteristics (in addition to having excellent eye contact) is: they speak their minds. Robert Griffin III of the Washington Redskins is one of those athletes. Of course, it’s important that he have the skill level (which he does) but as we all know there are many athletes out there who have the talent but never reach peak performance because they are withholding (bottling-up) their feelings and emotions. Not so with Robert. If he stays healthy, and continues to say what’s on his mind, watch for him to have a fantastic NFL season.
