Let's Play Ball!






"It's hard to beat
 a guy who never
 gives up."
~ Babe Ruth



"Everyday is a new opportunity. You can build on yesterday's success or put it's failures behind and start over again.  That is the way life is; a new game every day and that's the way baseball is." ~Bob Feller

We cannot be 'happier' if we do not at least try!  Positive Adaptation offers a way to Think, Feel and Do your way into being the best you can be and enjoying life to the fullest.  Life is too short not to at least take a swing at it!

Consider the movie "Field of Dreams".  You know, "If you build it, they will come". Kevin Kostner's character thought about it, felt deeply and then did what most thought was the impossible, he built it and they did come! He fulfilled his dream, shared it with others and so can you.

"There are three types of baseball players: those who make it happen, those who watch it happen and those who wonder what happens." ~Tommy Lasorda.  Which one do you want to be?  

Lou Gehrig, even after discovering he was ill, kept a positive attitude. He told the entire world he might have had a tough break but still considered himself the luckiest man on earth.  

You cannot win unless you play, right? So today, make the decision not to sit in the grandstands just watching, choose to get in the game of life! Remember, it is not whether you win or loose, it is how you play. All we ever need to do is be and do our best.

There is no such thing as three strikes and you are out in life! Keep at it, you are bound to hit one out of the park!
