Are You Hitting Home Runs?

Babe Ruth
Striking out is part of life.  Babe Ruth struck out 1,330 times, nearly twice as many times as his 714 home runs.  He could have settled for singles and doubles in order to avoid the strikeouts.  But then he would have disappeared in the outfield with all the others who settled for mediocrity. 

Do you fear striking out?  Does this fear keep you off the field of life?  Or do you settle for hitting singles and doubles when you know you can do so much better?

My greatest life lessons come from my strikeouts.  Every day I dream of hitting home runs.  I don't even track the strikeouts; my casualty list is even greater than Babe's.

What is really comes down to is your plate appearances.  It's all about facing the giant on the mound, day after day.  Don't ever give up on your dreams.  Show the world you can hit it out of the park.  That's how the world will remember you.  Strikeouts are only stepping stones leading you to the hall of fame.  Swing away.  Are you ready to hit some home runs?  In case you need a little extra inspiration, take a look at this young military lady who is not afraid to ask Tim Tebow for a date.  Don't forget to share about your home runs.  Make a plate appearance in the comments section below.
