Step up to the plate and swing.
Who cares if you miss. Take pride in knowing that you had the courage to take a hack.
Besides, one of the great things about life is that we can take as many swings as we want. It’s not like we have a limited amount of strikes before we have to go sit back down on the bench.
The only time we’ll fail is if we continue to watch opportunities pass us by and never take the bat off our shoulder.
So, step up and swing. If you miss, make the necessary adjustments then go right back up there and take another hack.
All it takes is one big hit to change the game.
Step up and swing.
