Okay, so this is so much out of the norm for me. But my husband and I so much enjoy watching our son play baseball. He is finishing his final season as he will be graduating high school and then trying to get onto a college team.
Yup, that is our son hitting a double with an RBI. That picture was in our local paper …..
It made me think about how the ‘game’ of baseball relates to our business.
After all, you start out learning how to hit, catch the ball and play the game. Then you practice, practice and more practice so you are ready for game day. Then you play many games each and every day. Until that special day when you “hit a home run”!
So if you are in the game and feeling overwhelmed, go back to the basics, remember what you learned that made your business get off the ground. How you were able to get the crowd cheering and wanting more from you. What are you not doing today, that you were doing then?
And if you are still in the dug out, find the confidence to get ‘on deck’, take that first hit and even if you strike out, get back out there and try again.
It is a game of being focused, staying confident, believing in yourself and never, ever giving up.
So tell me, have you hit a home run lately, are you in the game or are you still in the dug out?
Wishing you and your business much Success!
