Continuing To Go To Bat
Posted on May 15, 2012
“We cannot hit a home run with the bases loaded every time we go to the plate. We also know the only way we can ever get to first base is by constantly going to bat and continuing to swing.” – Walt Disney
Why do you do this? Why do you do what you do? I think it is unbelievably important to know exactly the reasons why you are doing something, so when you hit adversity or even success, you know why you are there. I am a firm believer in doing what you are supposed to do, doing it well, and knowing why you are doing it. I think it is equally as important to not be afraid to believe in what you are doing.
There will be many times when other people will doubt what you are doing…hell, there might be times when you even doubt what you are doing. But if you know your reasons, you are much less likely to give up. One of the hardest things to do in life is physically transform your body. The reason is because it is a long train ride…not a couple week transformation. Most people give up after a few weeks because they aren’t seeing any significant results. But it is right at that point when they are just about to start seeing the clay move. It takes a while to start seeing results, but once you pass the inflection point, things really start to drastically change. So for anyone out there who is going through a transformation process, keep going, you are so close.
Do what you do better than anyone else. You will never be perfect, but that doesn’t mean you can strive for perfection. You can take yourself to great heights…but just know…you will always be a project. To me, that is a much more exciting reality than one that says you can make yourself into something perfect. Then you won’t have something to work on. While it may seem nice for a while, I would get pretty bored.
