When was the last time you woke up and
knew you could hit a homerun?

When was the last time you arrived at
the ballpark and knew you could
hit a homerun?

When was the last time you stepped
to the plate and believed you could
hit a homerun?

Actually, when was the last time you
hit a homerun?

Everyday we encounter endless people,
situations and other things that try
to stop us from achieving all we can.

If we let them get in our way, then
we are done. If we let them take
our mind off of the focus we are
going for, then we are done.

So, when was the last time you woke up
and knew you could hit a homerun?

I hope it was this morning, but if it wasn’t,
then it is time to re-think, time to re-tool,
time to regenerate the motivation it takes
for you to wake up and believe you can do it.

If you cannot get up and know you can
do it, then guess what? It is not going to
happen.

As Robert Schuller puts it, “Focus means
learning to say ‘NO’ to distractions”.

Granted, there is so much standing in
your way, that unless you are really
determined, it will stop you. Unless
you are focused on making it, you will
not.
James Merrit puts it very well, “as you
look out, what do you see, stumbling
blocks or stepping stones”?

Think about it, do you look out do see
things as stoppers or as opportunities?

Do you look at the things that stand
between you and success as stumbling
blocks that will stop you, or do you simple
change them to stepping stones and use
them to achieve your goal?

You know, the choice is yours. As we
have said many times before, it is
your attitude, you determine how to use
it, no one sets your attitude but you.

So step number one – get up and know
you can hit the homerun. Walk out
into the kitchen knowing you can do it.

Walk out and share with those in
your home that
“I am going to do it today”.

Walk around with it written all over
your face –
“I can hit the homerun today”.

Remember as Robert Schuller further
says, “setting the goals is easy, but
announcing it to those you love,
announcing it to others, that really
takes courage”.

Now, when you get to your business,
your job or simply when you start
your day at home, keep that positive attitude.

Don’t listen as others complain.

You have arrived at the ballpark
and you know that today you can
hit that homerun.

Will you definitely hit it today?

Maybe not, but that should never stand in
the way of knowing you can do it.

Walk in with the attitude, “I can hit
the homerun today.”

Then, as you step to the plate.

Whether the plate is a phone call to a
customer for more business, a visit
to a prospect to close a deal, a
presentation to a large group of
prospective buyers, or simply doing your
regular job, always know you can
hit that homerun.

Know that no mater what happens,
no matter how it turns out, you
stepped to the plate and you knew
you could hit the homerun.

I guarantee you one thing, if you
don’t step to the plate knowing you
can do it, you hardly ever will do it.

So, you woke up and knew you could
hit the homerun, you arrived knowing
you could do it, you stepped to the plate
knowing you could do it, now do it.

If you continue to follow those 3 simple
steps you will hit more homeruns
than anyone else in your organization,
you will become the super star you
want to become, you will make it happen.

Yes, you might end up striking
out more than others, but you will end
up with more success than others
as well.

Go for it, hit the homerun.

Remember, Failure Creates Success.
