“Every strike brings you closer to your next home run.” – Babe Ruth
When you hear the name “Babe Ruth”, what’s the first thing that comes to mind?
Hall of Fame home run hitter.
What is not the immediate reaction, is “all-time strikeout leader”. 1,300 strikeouts. A record for three decades he held. It was eventually broken, by another who struck out quite a bit too. Mickey Mantle. A name that would be hard to guess, as he’s right next to Babe Ruth in the hall of fame for his home run hits.
These two didn’t reach their success through the home runs. They reached it through the strike outs. Remove those embarrassing misses… and we would never know their names.
Every missed lift. Every poor competition. Every embarrassing stumble.
It’s bringing us closer.
This is where we get better.
