Here's a story that really speaks to everyone of us. And it really
encouraged me greatly, so I hope this does the same for you. Im sure
you baseball fans too will like it. I grew to like watching baseball
alot after being in the US and TW. And as time grew by, I really
started to be enchanted by the game.
George Herman, "Babe" Ruth is one of the greatest baseball players of
all time. He hit 714 home runs and for almost four decades he held the
major league lifetime homerun record. He was such a legend that the
Yankee Stadium today is still known as "the house that Ruth built". His
other nicknames were "The Bambino", " The Sultan of Swat" and "The
Babe".(Yes he was formerly a Red Sox guy, but got sold to the Yankees,
so hurray both Red Sox and Yankees.)
But one thing most people didn't know is that Babe Ruth also held the
record for being struck out. Did you know that he got struck out 1330
times more than any other player in his era? This means that he held
the lifetime record from being struck out before he held the record for
the homeruns. We all admire people of greatness, these athletes and
their achievements but they too had their struggles, failures and
"strike outs". At any one point, due to distress, embarrassment and bad
morale Babe could have just stopped. But what is this strength that
keeps people going, keeps champions going and fighters fighting?
It's the positivity that lies in a person to continue. There are times
when I feel weary and just want to crumble and am almost too tired to
motivate myself again. But those negative thoughts have a way of
stretching their tentacles just like positive thoughts can bless other
people when you share them. :) Hopefully you'll feel just as uplifted
as I did after I'd read this story.
