3 Life Lessons from Baseball

Jul 01, 2024 / Miscellaneous     

Here are 3 life lessons from one of America’s favorite pastimes.  First, patience is a virtue.  The desire today for instant success is overwhelming.  But baseball shows us that even the best players only hit the ball about 3 out of 10 times.  So having patience is key to succeeding in baseball, and in life.  Second, baseball teaches us how to deal with pressure.  It takes less than half a second for a ball to travel from the pitcher to the catcher.  A batter must stay really focused under pressure to hit the ball. With the pressures of daily living, it’s important for us to stay focused on what’s really important—our relationships.  Here’s more on the 3 Life Lessons from Baseball.
