Life can throw you curveballs. And you have learned how to adjust to them. You aren’t a kid anymore. Real life is here. Partners rely on you. Businesses rely on you. Your client’s rely on you.
You’ve been trained in how to handle the fastball. That was elementary school, which feels so long ago. You know the pace and expectation of every type of fastball that’s come at you in your years of experience. Nobody is calling you ‘Rookie’ anymore.
But now the curve, slider, slurve, or is it a knuckball that’s coming at you. You’re uncomfortable disposition is visible to many around you. You probably foolish and you try to grasp what exactly is happening in this moment. But the onlookers aren’t in the batters box. You are. You chose to walk up to this plate and give it your best. You chose this.
So there’s nothing left to do but block out the audience. Block out the noise; the taunters and critics who hide behind their screens and are using you as an escape from their own problems. They enjoy the entertainment to forget about their pain
But their perception doesn’t matter. the bat isn’t in their hands. It’s in yours. This is your moment. This is your responsibility.
So Relax. Look around. Make a call.
Give this moment of your life the best swing you have.
Then go. Take the next step. Trust that everything that you’ve taken in is there for a reason. Know that your instincts are there for a reason and have been refined all of these year of your life.
That inner peace you feel when y ou are making the right decision is trying to get your attention. Trust. Have faith.
Make contact and enjoy this chapter of your life.
