If you’ve ever played softball, baseball or other sports, we can’t wait to get in there and take a swing at the ball, can we?
Even if we strike out three times in a row, we’re anxious to jump back in and try again.
This is not how most people live life.
We give up too easily, come up with reasons why we’ve done our best, shy away from trying again after a certain point.
We just accept a swing and a miss.
To change that and harness the power of persistence, think of everything you do like a baseball game.
In baseball, if you drop the ball, you actually want the next batter to hit it to you againso you can make amends. No licking wounds, no excuses.
That’s how to live life and increase the chance of winning because there is always the next opportunity to succeed.
