Alternate your plan and mental approach for the remainder of the day.
Maybe you are disappointed by those around you.
Seek out new people to surround yourself with.
Maybe you are dismayed by circumstances.
A bleak outlook overall does not equate to a weak output on your part.
Maybe the obvious is staring you in the face.
Stare back until the obvious blinks.
I came across this quote from Babe Ruth earlier today and will post it near my desk.
If you simply refuse to give up you can not be beat.
I had a friend in high school, Bobby Craddock.
I have met a lot of people, and almost forty years later, Bobby Craddock is one of the most interesting people I have ever met.
Bobby was a magnet for trouble.
Trouble found him or he found trouble.
Either way, they would find each other.
Bobby was one of those people you meet in life that would cry with you one minute and be in a fight with someone else shortly thereafter.
Fortunately, Bobby always seemed to be watching out for me, except when he was pounding me at football practice.
I remember Bobby getting in a fight on a Friday night after a football game.
Bobby, as he was prone to do, would come to the rescue of someone smaller that was being picked on.
Bobby was getting ready to pound this guy in the parking lot of the Pizza Inn.
It may have appeared to some at first that Bobby was losing the fight.
I knew differently.
What the other guy did not know, and if he would have asked me before the fight started, I would have informed him, “Pal, you can’t win, because Bobby will not quit. He does not know how. You sir, should prepare yourself for a whupping.”
So today, in my own life, I am going to take the same approach that Bobby Craddock and Babe Ruth took…as long as I am fighting, then I am winning.
I can not be beat because I will never give up.
