I am no stranger to getting knocked on my ass, or, to falling flat on my face. Let’s be real, it’s the falling that I tend to do more off. The point is, I’m no stranger to failure. Each time something happens, I pick myself up, dust myself off, and do it again. As a pitcher, you are surrounded by failure. You throw a pitch in the wrong spot and boom, homerun. You walk someone. They get a base bit. Not the right spot. If I wasn’t able to handle all of those failures, then there is no way I should have been on that mound. But I was, and I loved it. As vulnerable as I felt up there, that was something that I felt that I could control, but when it comes to life, there are so many factors that you can’t control and that’s terrifying. Asking a girl out. Telling someone you love them. Applying for a new job. THE INTERVIEW. So many things are out of our control. But, we try. It may not work out the way we want it to, but we try. And when it doesn’t work out, we have to be able to pick ourselves up. Recently, I almost let a failure get the best of me. I fell and I fell hard. But rather than dusting myself off, I just laid there. As a matter of fact, I started digging. And right about when I was going to drag myself into this hole I dug, I realized, that wasn’t me. I’m a fighter. I don’t quit. I am a good person with a big heart who at times, gives way too much, but I give and never expect anything in return. I am good. I am strong. I deserve the best. But, that doesn’t come without putting in the work. Work hard for yourself. Put yourself out there and never let a failure keep you down. Don’t give up on yourself. Failure sure be expected. Don’t be afraid of it. Learn from it. Get back on that mound and get ready for the next pitch. Have a great day everyone. .
