What I’m about to share with you, 99% of corporate America doesn’t understand.
They just don’t get it. If you make a mistake in most jobs today, you’re reprimanded, criticized by others, maybe even fired. Now I’m not talking about doing something stupid like stealing from the company, or making the mistake of never showing up on time.
I’m talking about maybe trying out a new idea, testing new waters, implementing a new strategy in the business etc… Try something or suggest something just once, and if it doesn’t work out, it’s all “I told you so” or “I knew that would never work” — “what a stupid idea” and so on…
But think about this for a sec. Babe Ruth, the famous Baseball player, was known as the baseball’s home-run king. I mean he could pound’em out into the bleachers! But…He was also known as the “strike-out” king.
Now could you imagine that if every time Babe struck out that the coaches and teammates would start analyzing his swing and giving him instant feedback? Or could you imagine Babe getting so sad about his strike-out that the next time at the plate, he would just go for a bunt, or swing halfheartedly, or maybe even give up? No!! He would simply learn from the strikeout, focus on the next pitch, and swing for the bleachers again.
Listen up, don’t let ANY of YOUR failures or strikeouts hold you back. They’re simply learning and growth opportunities. Do not give up!
Every great success that you hear about is riddled with failures and challenges of all sorts. But trust me, when you swing for the fences every-time? Eventually, you WILL GET A HOME-RUN! And the benefits from that will far outweigh any struggle that you’ve went through.
Struggles are like the steps to success. You have to walk them to get to your destination. Ooh, I just wrote that! That’s a quotable right there! lol…
Anyway, if you’re still swinging for the fences, I’d like to show you a NEW program that a lot of people are hitting big home-runs with.
