Baseball's Lessons for Life
"That there are seemingly endless metaphors and universal life lessons that can be gleaned from baseball is one of the many things that make the game so interesting."
Motivational speaker Mike Robbins finds endless metaphors in baseball. One is that failure is part of the game. "The two teams in the World Series this year, the Giants and the Rangers, each lost 70 and 72 games, respectively, during the regular season. That's a lot of failure and, they're really good! This is also true in life. The question isn't whether or not we'll fail; it's how we'll deal with it when it happens that's most important. Remembering that failure is an essential part of the game of life can help us let go of unnecessary fear, worry, and self judgment."
