One of my favorite months of the year is October. My birthday is in October, playoff baseball for the MLB is in October. Today is actually November 1st and that adds an even deeper excitement when the World Series enters November. Tonight the Cubs play the Indians for Game 6.
Don’t let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game.
Is a quote that I heard last week and it really inspired me because I grew up playing baseball and I’m a fan, but also because of this quote’s application and meaning in every aspect of life.
As a player, I’ve let fear hold me back at times. As I got older and more experienced, I also learned that I would rather take a swing at a ball that was a bad pitch than I would watch a strike that was hittable pass by!
In your life, is there any fear that is holding you back?
Step up to bat! Dig in deep. Take a swing. If you strike out, it was worth swinging at.
