EVERY PITCHER HAS PERFORMANCE CONSTRAINTS

THIS SYSTEM UNDERSTANDS EXACTLY WHAT IT TAKES AND HOW TO PREPARE AND PERFORM AT THE NEXT LEVEL

Adjust To A Next Level Game. Discover your next level with this unique cutting edge system

1Why Does It Work?

  • The Durathro™ System Diagnoses your Pitching game
  • The Durathro™ System Identifies the individual constraints that are currently holding YOU back from being an exceptional pitcher…
  • The Durathro™ System creates a powerfully unique and highly accurate training program to address (and improve) each individual constraint...

All without handicapping your game, putting you at risk of injury – and most importantly - without losing any of your personal style...

If you are going to become great, you must develop consistency from one outing to the next. Consistency requires more than luck, good genes and good mechanics. Consistency requires a well designed, personalized recovery process within an overall training system.

Why is Velocity Important?

Like it or not, the harsh reality is that the first thing scouts and recruiters at your ‘next level of competition’ will look at is your radar readings. Lacking velocity eliminates athletes from consideration immediately and second, a velocity of just 2-5mph above your competitive peers will give you a distinct advantage.

Many professional scouts will look you right in the eye and tell you with conviction that velocity can NOT be taught. “You either have it or you don’t.” What they really mean to say is THEY can’t teach velocity. At the Texas Baseball Ranch™ we develop it every single day.

What Are The Biggest Constraints To Your Next Level Game?

Bio-Mechanical Pain Simply put - if you don’t have good arm health, and you experience pain of any kind then everything else; velocity, command, deception, movement, feel, pitch-ability, recovery, consistency and workload etc. is impossible.

Your Internal Story What you tell yourself matters. Failure, set backs and challenges are absolutes. Therefore if you are easily frustrated, discouraged or disappointed, you have absolutely zero chance to progress to the highest levels of competition.

Performance In truth, most players fail not because they didn’t work hard enough. They fail because they didn’t work hard enough at the right things...the things that truly impact growth and development. Motor Learning involves terms like guided discovery, natural learning, differential learning, backward chaining, mylination, neuromuscular blending, and others contained within the Durathro™ System.

All you need to get to the next level is an awareness of your constraints and a specific plan to eliminate them

THE INCREDIBLE POWER OF THE DURATHRO SYSTEM!

Built on a proven model

Paradigms matter; An incorrect or incomplete pattern can bring growth and development to a screeching halt while the right model can accelerate the learning

Highly Personalized Program

This is far superior to the standard ‘One Size Fits All Program. because every young man only has so long to master his skill. That time is far more finite than many believe or understand it to be.

The Bernstein Principle

...says that “the body will organize itself in accordance with the overall goal of the activity.” Think about that in Baseball.

Assessments and Awareness

...are key: Knowing EXACTLY where you are now is absolutely invaluable in designing the right path forward.

Durathro™ was invented by Coach Ron Wolforth

Hello, I’m Coach Wolforth. Could you agree that as you walk into almost any mall in America, you’ll see a visual representation or map of the location of all businesses located in the mall. On that map you’ll see an arrow, a dot or a cutout figurine next to the written text indicating that “You Are Here.”

Would you agree that, without the “You Are Here” designation, the map is far more difficult to read and probably even impossible to use.!

The you will also agree on just how critical is the understanding of exactly where you are at now to achievement and development in Baseball, and you will understand why I had to change the way Baseball was taught.

If you want to grow or develop at a faster rate, you must evolve away from where “You Are Here” or risk being surpassed by others who are more progressive in their training. The Texas Baseball Ranch™ is dedicated specifically to the constant and never ending development of training for pitchers, and no facility in the world today is creating velocity and arm health faster than the Texas Baseball Ranch™.

Durathro™ is living, breathing proof that paradigms matter.

2What is it Exactly?

Durathro™ System is a series of interconnected and interdependent parts that delivers a hyper-personalised training program for each individual athlete.

Every outcome is different and specific to you. You have your own personal levels of strength/stability, mobility/flexibility, height/weight/length of levers, muscle fiber type composition, pitching experience, neuromuscular efficiency, mechanical efficiency, movement patterns, work ethic, mindset, as well as history of injury both throwing and non throwing related.

Durathro™ System reveals your personal combination, eliminates or reduces your constraints and takes your game to your own personal next level.

1. Wake up, Warm up

People view Warm Ups as a necessary evil. They don’t like all the sweat, inconvenience and uncomfortableness that goes along with an involved warmup process.

The WRONG ASSUMPTION that they and their competition arrive at game time with identical levels of readiness, is almost always fraught with danger.

I have witness first hand hundreds of athletes grossly under preprepared, flat, sluggish and disconnected because they are not ready at that moment for the speed or intensity of the specificgame time requirements of the skill itself.

The 3 biggest myths busted in Cog1 are:

  • Thinking that being ‘flat’ has nothing to do with warmup.
  • Thinking that thorough warm up uses up performance energy
  • Warm-ups have very little to do with injuries

The body can not recruit what isn’t yet awake awake. If you are asking specific parts of your body to overcompensate, carry an additional load or to contribute to a greater degree than is optimal... injury is often the result.

2. Arm Care / Recovery

Throwing 90-95-100 mph is a spectacular neuromuscular event. It will require a very demanding and specific organization. The less contributions a pitcher gets from the trunk, pelvis and spine, the greater contributions will of course be required from the elbow & shoulder. The greater the contributions from the elbow & shoulder, the more potential stress on the soft tissue.

Therefore without question, health and durability are directly linked to wake-up / warm up and the processes of taking care of the arm.

In Cog #1 we discussed why we believe the wake-up warm-up process is so very valuable. Now we move on further into the process.

The body is awake and lathered, but the arm is still not fully ready to go to battle. So how exactly do we make that specific ramp up happen? In truth the possible variations on theme are only constrained by your imagination.

The essential element to take note of here is that our goal must be to warm up the muscles, lubricate the joints, raise our core temperature and reinforce optimal movement patterns and neuromuscular efficiencies WITHOUT banging the soft tissue.

In the Durathro™ program our arm care workout includes exercises using tubing, wrist weights, bell clubs and shoulder tube for starters.

After a detailed warm-up/wake up and arm care routine, we are now ready to throw with a purpose and work on command, velocity, and our secondary offerings!

For arm care and more specifically for recovery, there should be a ramp down- typically with the same tools we used as a ramp up.



One of the greatest falsehoods perpetuated on baseball as a whole by the medical community is the specter of ‘Overuse’, implying we need to ‘throw’ less.

In truth, we need to prepare to pitch MUCH, MUCH more and that includes a lot of throwing. THIS, ladies and gentlemen is the crux of arm care: Preparation of the entire system for the specific demands of pitching in competition.



3. Mobility & Flexibility

First of all, in this description, we aren’t going to go into detail on the difference between mobility and flexibility.

While there indeed is a difference and that distinction may occasionally be important to trainers and physical therapists, for this discussion, mobility and flexibility fall into the same constraint or ‘cog’ with no need for energy spent here distinguishing the two. If you are curious, the internet is replete with ample explanations.

Every player we’ve ever dealt with would OBVIOUSLY fall under one of these 3 basic categories:

  • They are more mobile/ flexible than they are strong or stable.
  • They are more strong/ stable than they are mobile or flexible.
  • They are very balanced between mobility/flexibility and strength/stability

Even when talking with an athlete for the very first time over the phone and he is asked, ‘Are you more mobile/flexible than you are strong or are you more strong/stable than you are mobile/ flexible?’ 95% of the time they respond one way without hesitation. They are clearly more one than the other. Which then begs my next question, ‘Does your training reflect this reality?’

The ramifications of this distinction are profound to us at The Texas Baseball Ranch™.

Michael Boyle, a well known strength/ performance expert in the Northeast, explains it this way…”If an athlete has a mobility constraint, why would we first proceed with strength training? We might very well only be adding strength on top of dysfunction.” We concur 100%. It’s like putting fresh paint over rotten wood. It may look good but it is unsustainable and at the first sign of duress it will crumble.

At every Elite Pitchers Boot Camp™ we see a dozen young men who, via a combination of their genetic makeup, their life style and their training, are constrained by their lack of mobility and/ or flexibility. Those constraints run the gamut from ankle mobility, hamstring/ quadricep flexibility, hip mobility, thoracic spine mobility and shoulder mobility. Many of their problems were/are exacerbated by poorly designed, misapplied and misaligned strength programs. Some of their problems were/are compounded by inefficient and disconnected movement patterns repeated over time.

Many, if not most of these young athletes, will find creating a dynamic, explosive, connected and efficient (therefore repeatable) movement pattern very difficult because of their mobility/ flexibility constraints. We must address and correct those as soon as possible BEFORE our efforts at modifying their movement pattern can be most productive. Many times athletes would love nothing more than to replicate the movements of a Nolan Ryan or Greg Maddux but their mobility and/or flexibility simply will not allow it.

4. Strength & Stability

We run into the following type of mentality every single week at the Ranch. It happens so frequently it is almost cliche: “All you need is 3-5 mph to your fastball and you can play at the next level. You need to gain strength, size and mass. If you put on 15-25 pounds of muscle, you’’ll throw harder.” Hard to argue with research right?

First, putting on 15 pounds of muscle let alone 25 is far from an easy or straightforward task. Second, we’ve personally experienced very little direct correlation between mass and velocity. Offensive football linemen are massive yet we personally know of none that throw 80 mph much less 90 mph much less 100 mph. Third, the possible adverse affects of adding strength on top of dysfunction should give everyone pause. Tommy John anyone? Labrum tear any one? No we’re not being overly provocative. Limitations/constraints in one area can greatly influence stress to soft tissue.

Let us be clear so as to not be misrepresented or misquoted here. “We’re all in favor of building general, functional and skill specific strength as long as that gain doesn’t add to or complicate a constraint or limitation somewhere else that already exists.“ In other words, we’re very pro ‘building a bigger motor’ in our engine unless for example ‘one of our tires is flat’. If that is indeed the case, in our opinion we must first take a step back and rethink this individual athlete’s program from a holistic perspective. In our opinion we fix the flat first…THEN we can pursue our other goals.

So why have we repeated the terms : “general, functional and skill specific” ? Simple…it’s an important distinction in our view.

Our athlete doesn’t need the strength of an NFL offensive lineman nor the flexibility of an elite gymnast or ballet dancer. We would maintain that investing the extra time attempting to achieve that incredibly high standard in this one area is both counterproductive and a profound waste of training time.


At the Texas Baseball Ranch™ we are teachers and a practical applicators, not a gurus or ideologues. Strength development or mobility/flexibility training are the means to an end and not the end itself. We personally view them exactly as the diagram might suggest: they are individual cogs in the process.

At every Elite Pitchers Boot Camp™ we see a few young men who, via a combination of their genetic makeup, their life style and their training, are constrained by their lack of strength or stability. Those constraints run the gamut from knee stability, glute contribution, lumbar spine stability, core strength, and scapular stability. Many of their problems were/ are exacerbated by poorly designed or non existent strength programs. Some of their problems were/ are compounded by inefficient and disconnected movement patterns repeated over time. The great news…if we identify the constraints early…and correct or minimize them…we often can simply sit back and literally watch magic happen. Very much like reducing the ballast on a hot air ballon..if you reduce the ballast enough…the ballon takes off. So will many young men’s careers.

5. Conditioning / Recovery II

We have been beating this particular drum for nearly 10 years now. Long distance running a.k.a. ‘poles,’ are in fact, without question, counter productive to the specific demands/needs/requirements of the skill of pitching a baseball in a game. There is a great deal of research that would clearly indicate that long distance running is contraindicated for the conditioning of the baseball pitcher.

The Bernstein Principle is always in affect (24/7/365). It is either working with you or against you. An essential key in training, in our opinion, is to have the Bernstein Principle continually assisting you and move you toward your ultimate performance goal. The body will obviously accommodate - adjust - adapt - modify - shape or alter itself based upon the stresses/demands placed upon it. In other words your body responds to the exact type of training stress that it is placed under. Pick the wrong activity, your body may very well change in the wrong direction.

We believe the following are the most common five thought processes/paradigms that lead otherwise good people down a very ill advised path with regards to the conditioning of their pitchers.

  • Tradition: That’s the way I did it when I was a kid and it worked for me, Sandy Koufax and Nolan Ryan. So it’s good enough for you.
  • Logic Tree #1: Pitchers need strong legs. You get strong legs by running. Therefore pitchers need to run
  • Logic Tree #2: Pitchers need endurance. You get endurance by running long distance. Therefore pitchers need to run
  • Logic Tree #3: Pitchers need to be mentally tough and be disciplined. You get mentally tough by running. Therefore pitchers need to run.

Other than PFP’s, shagging in the out field during BP and hitting fungo to infielders, there is not much else for pitchers to do at practice. Ergo: Poles…pitchers can be ‘conditioning’ with very little required from the coach other than…’Go get your running in”. In essence the outfield warning track is the perfect place to babysit pitchers and at the same time ‘something’ is getting done. Everyone can feel ‘good’.

In truth, all of them are sad shadows of the truth with just enough logic mixed in to sound reasonable.

The Bernstein Principle (coined by Paul Nyman): “The body will organize itself based upon the ultimate goal of the activity.”

The huge elephant in the room that no one likes to discuss is that for many athletes their daily training goals undermine or run contrary to their long term performance goals.

There are literally dozens of reasons NOT to utilize long distance running as your method for conditioning pitchers. The following are the big six for us:

  • It trains the wrong energy system
    We want activity involving full body explosions 1-2 seconds in duration, followed by 15-25 seconds of recovery, repeated in sets of 15-25 explosions, followed by rest intervals of 10-15 minutes. Poles do not.
  • It creates / contributes to mobility constraints/ limitations / issues.
    Simply watch the stride length of a pitcher and a world class 100 meter sprinter and compare them to the stride length of a pitcher running a ‘pole’ or of a marathon runner. The difference is so blatantly obvious to us that frankly we often lose patience with baseball coaches who insist on the efficacy of running ‘poles’. This isn’t even a close call.
  • It could negatively effect the stretch shortening cycle
    It is debated how much stored elastic energy contributes to the velocity of a pitcher. Regardless of that number, long distance running with it’s slow, low ROM, low intensity, high frequency repetitive movements certainly does not lend itself to encouraging larger contributions from stored elastic energy. In fact it’s exactly the opposite. In short we want to encourage and augment stored elastic energy not suppress it.
  • Inhibits Strength/ Power Development
    The old saying in strength circles is “Train slow- be slow”; “Train fast be fast!” Did you ever wonder why that yarn holds true to a significant degree? We firmly believe that one of the factors that give that phrase legitimacy is that we as human beings are created magnificently by our Creator
  • It’s The Wrong Intensity / Intent
    Ask an Olympic swimming coach or track coach and they will speak at great length regarding the processes they use in getting their athlete’s training intensity precisely correct. If the intensity is too high, what many refer to as ‘red lining’, the athlete’s technique may unravel and/or they expose themselves to an unnecessarily high risk of injury. If it’s too low, what many refer to as the ‘dead zone’, the athlete’s highly tuned neuromuscular efficiencies diminish, focus becomes spotty and critical movement patterns become lax and sloppy
  • Very Inefficient Use of Training Time (ROT)
    We have frequently asked our elite athletes, “What is the biggest challenge in your training?” Almost universally their first response is ‘time’. They don’t have enough of it. So we are going to ‘waste’ 12-30 minutes of our precious time participating in an activity that in truth is directly counter to what we are attempting to create.
6. A Personalized Throwing Program

In all our years of developing elite level throwers, we’ve long since recognized that topics like ‘designing throwing programs’ are the equivalent to red meat to hungry wolves. Everybody wants to race to the how and how many, hoping beyond all hope that this one protocol might just prove to be the Holy Grail of throwing programs.

With that in mind, before beginning the description of the processes of Cog #6, here’s a quick touch on eight critical concepts that lay at the foundation of The Ranch Throwing Program:

  • Starting With The Pain™ And The Hyper-personalization of Throwing Programs™
  • The Gallwey Principles of Guided Discovery and Learning Through The Awareness Mode vs Cookie Cutting and Strict Choreography
  • Chunking
  • ‘Best Pattern’ Throwing
  • Neuromuscular Blending
  • The Act of a Throwing Drill itself is unremarkable: Every Drill/ Activity Has an Inherent Strength AND an Inherent Weakness. How they are applied and utilized is the difference maker
  • The Bosch Principles of Precise Intention & Variable Execution
  • The Nyman concepts of Posture/ Rotation / Connection and the Bernstein Principle

#1 Starting with the Pain™ and The Hyper-personalization of Throwing Programs™

Understanding, identifying and assessing pain and then eliminating it is in our opinion the single most important factor in becoming a competitive pitcher. Period! In almost every initial conversation we have while consulting with a pitcher, parent or a coach begins and ends with the concept of Starting with the Pain™. The reason for this is both simple and profound. No pitcher, regardless of genetic gift or natural talent can achieve and/or maintain high level competitive capabilities if constantly sore, impaired or injured. As CJ Wilson likes to say, “No one makes the All-star team from the training room."

Here is what is ironic. In all of these conversations not one person has ever disagreed with the premise. Not one. Most shake their heads in agreement and offer knowing expressions of solidarity. Then almost always the strangest thing happens. Nothing. They simply continue on with what they were doing, apparently hoping that what I just said somehow doesn’t apply to them personally.

We call it the ‘Don’t Ask- Don’t Tell’ Phenomena of baseball pitching. Somehow if we just don’t talk about it, maybe it won’t happen to us.


Our response: So how is that working for us? Injuries are occurring at an staggering epidemic rate. We must forge a new path. That’s what the Texas Baseball Ranch™ is all about: The rejection of the old standard conventional wisdoms and the creation of a new way of approaching training. We have designed a holistic, comprehensive, process dedicated to the hyper-personalization of training protocols. The old ‘one size fits all program’ needs to go the way of the dinosaur…namely...extinction.

People see our results and often ask what is so unique about the Texas Baseball Ranch™, Ron Wolforth and the Durathro™ System? It’s hard for many of them to get their head around the fact that someone is so distinctly different in their approach to training.

The answer is really this simple. We simply look at things differently than anybody else.

For example: We are the only place in the world that STARTS our process of devising a customized/ personalized training program for each pitching athlete with a Pain Assessment. In other words we Start With The Pain™. In our opinion, the pain tells us where your current weakest link is.

We believe pain tell us the most urgent problem within each individual pitcher. Pain doesn’t tell us every one of his inefficiencies...it simply points us to the most urgent problem in front of him...today...right now. After we solve the pain issue, then and only then do we at the Texas Baseball Ranch™ expand our processes to other areas. To go forward without first addressing the individual’s weakest link is a gigantic waste of time and effort.

This in a nut shell is why we at the Texas Baseball Ranch are so different. We take the time to really assess so that we can then prioritize. It allows us to customize. It allows us to personalize. We keep pulling back layer after layer of the onion. No other place in the baseball world that I’m aware of attempts to pull off what we do. It requires so much more attention to detail. It requires one to think not only broader but also much deeper. A vast majority of the baseball training world simply doesn’t want to work that hard.

Everybody else has ONE system and you the individual must comply and fit inside that one system.

You see at the TBR™ we believe each individual pitcher is absolutely unique in the universe. He has his own specific constraints and limitations along with his strengths, his gifts and innate talents and therefore to maximize his training time he needs his own unique program. One that constantly grows and evolves with him.We refer to it as his Pitching DNA™.

If you would like descriptions on the remaining seven concepts we tie into our Throwing Program here at The Ranch, please email info@TexasBaseball Ranch.com.

7. Mindset

Mindset - The Real Difference Maker: A set of beliefs or a way of thinking that determines one’s behavior, outlook and mental attitude.

Carol S. Dweck, Ph.D., is one of the world’s leading researchers in the field of moti- vation and is the Lewis and Virginia Eaton Professor of Psychology at Stanford University. Her research has fo- cused on why people succeed and how to foster success.

Dr. Dweck refers to mindset in this way:

“Mindsets are beliefs—beliefs about yourself and your most basic qualities. Think about your intelligence, your talents, your personality. Are these qualities simply fixed traits, carved in stone and that’s that? Or are they things you can cultivate throughout your life? People with a fixed mindset believe that their traits are just givens. They have a certain amount of brains and talent and nothing can change that. If they have a lot, they’re all set, but if they don’t...

So people in this mindset worry about their traits and how adequate they are. They have something to prove to themselves and others. People with a growth mindset, on the other hand, see their qualities as things that can be developed through their dedication and effort. Sure they’re happy if they’re brainy or talented, but that’s just the starting point. They understand that no one has ever accomplished great things— not Mozart, Darwin, or Michael Jordan—without years of passionate practice and learning.”

Coach Wolforth believes 'mindset' is the single most important variable he has studied in achievement and that a world class/ elite calibre/ championship/growth mindsets can be developed and cultivated and that is why each and every day at the Texas Baseball Ranch™ training begins with 10-20 minute mindset segments.

Each Ranch student MUST find a way to expose themselves daily to some kind of healthy/ optimistic/inspiring/uplifting/empowering/ motivational mindset segment to pour into their conscious and unconscious. That could be a book, a sermon, a lecture, a song, a video, a movie or even a conversation.

Zig Ziglar might have expressed it best when asked about the importance of daily motivation: “Motivation is like bathing. You need it on a regular basis. Just because I took a bath yesterday doesn't mean I don’t desperately need one today.”

8. Nutrition / Hydration / Sleep / Recovery III

"Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body." (1 Cor. 6:19-20).

Zig Ziglar used to quip that you don’t actually pay the price for developing the habits of health… rather you reap the benefits of those habits. I agree with Zig.

The Bible refers to our body has a temple and that we need to treat it with care and reverence. Whether or not you are a person of Faith and agree with the Bible, it is undeniable that we are stuck with one primary model and how we treat that model will greatly influence our abilities to move and direct energy. Here are the unequivocal facts:

Very much like any man made machine, how efficiently our body performs is directly related to the quality and quantity of fuel we place in the engine. If an athlete is going to perform consistently at a high level, he/she will need to place, substantial, high quality fuel into their engine on a regular basis. The quality of that fuel not only affects the workings of the neuromuscular system but also greatly influences the effectiveness of the brain itself (concentration/ cognition and focus) and the body’s ability to recover, repair itself and adapt/grow.

Dehydration, even in small amounts, can have detrimental affects upon performance of both the body and brain. ‘The capacity to perform high-intensity exercise, which results in exhaustion within a few minutes, is reduced by as much as 45% by prior dehydration corresponding to a loss of only 2.5% of body weight (Sawka, Young, Cadarette, et al. 1985)’ To make matters more complicated, waiting to drink water until you are thirsty or the intake of a diuretic or sugary fluid to quench that thirst can magnify that dehydration and further lead to performance limitations.

While at lower levels of competition, this reduction of efficiency probably goes by unnoticed, at the higher levels of competition where the difference between winning and losing is almost always razor thin, this can be a difference maker.

The quantity and quality of the sleep that a young athlete needs to recover, replenish, repair, adapt, accommodate and grow is well documented. Experts agree that between 8.5 and 9.5 hours of sleep every night (63-68 hrs per week) is critical for ideal performance, recovery and growth. The challenge is that with our busy lives, television, computer screens, cell phones, and video games that it is exceptionally difficult to obtain 9+ hours of high quality, uninterrupted sleep on a regular basis. This can only be accomplished by making it a priority.



9. Integrity: Personal & Spiritual

“Without a vision, the people perish.” PROVERBS 28:18
“For what doth a man gain if he gains the whole world and loses his soul.” MATTHEW 16:26
“It is written: 'Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’ MATTHEW 4:4

If one studies the lives of uber-successful people like Elvis, Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Marilyn Monroe, Robin Williams, Mikey Mantle, Roger Maris, Dwight Gooden and even Barry Bonds Etc…you will clearly feel the profound sadness, emptiness and despair they felt at times in their lives…while…they were at the exact same time, experiencing unparalleled fame, adulation and success by all conventional measures.

The conventional definition of success forwarded to us by our pop culture will almost always prove shallow, temporary and unfulfilling. Reality TV shows and numerous other pop culture venues suggest that if we just get the right cloths, drive the right car, have the right friends, go to the right school, make the right amount of money, live in the right neighborhoods… THEN we will be happy. Deep inside we know this is incomplete and incorrect.

Likewise, we may actually convince ourselves that if we just find the right pitching coach, get the right ’mechanics’, throw it X miles per hour, make the right high school/ select travel team, get a college scholarship at a big time baseball school, get drafted, get a big signing bonus, pitch in the major leagues…etc…THEN we will happy and successful. Again, if we are quiet enough internally to really think through this…we know this is at the very least shallow and temporary thinking. Goals are good, but our lives are certainly more than a set of arbitrary benchmarks and mile markers.

Like our mindset cog, I believe that each Ranch student MUST find a way to expose themselves daily to some kind of healthy/ optimistic/inspiring/uplifting/empowering/ motivational spiritual segment to pour into their conscious and unconscious. This also can be a book, a sermon, a lecture, a song, a video, a movie, a conversation or daily devotional/ meditation.

Without question, it is who we become along our journey that matters most. Integrity matters and perspective is vitally important to the state of our mental, emotional and spiritual well being.
