You should be the strikeout leader too

reggie2Reggie Jackson is the all-time leader in strikeouts.

He has 2,597 of them.

He’s also in the Baseball Hall of Fame.

What a minute…

The guy who whiffed more pitches,

or was caught looking, MORE THAN ANY OTHER PLAYER IN THE GAME…

is also in the Hall of Fame?

Yeah.

Get it?

Through all various and sundry shows out of my Dreamland Radio Network, I spend quality time with countless entrepreneurs and successful business leaders.

They all say something similar to the following:

You must fail.
Better, you should fail fast.
You should not be afraid to fail.
This is how we learn.

Or something to that effect.

Whatever.

At the end of the day, they aren’t wrong. But in my opinion, you are only a success because you’ve had a lot of at-bats…taken a lot of swings.

Like Reggie.

At the end of the day, you might win a few MVP awards, you might win a few World Series rings, you might be called “Mr. October…”

But to do so, you have to swing at a bunch of pitches.

And you will miss more than you connect.

But that’s ok. That’s what real men do. That’s what fearless people do. That’s what Hall-of-Famers do.

Despite a few strike-outs…

They will still be legends…
