"A ton of focus on details, especially mechanics. The smallest of changes can make the biggest difference in a player’s skill. Also make sure heart and mind is on the same page. If both are disciplined and focused on the same thing, there is no telling how far a player can get. The work ethic has to be there. I will put you in a situation where you need to focus and give it your all. Have you practice hard and the right way, even when you're tired. Training is not easy, there will always be mistakes. The only way to get beyond them is to learn and get through them"
