Mark McGwire beat out Sammy Sosa

I was watching a documentary of the 1998 MLB season. That was the year when
Mark McGwire beat out Sammy Sosa in the number of home runs in a single
season. You may recall that McGwire hit 70 homers that year.

Most baseball fans remember his successes at bat, but what you may not
recall about McGwire's record that year was that he struck out 155 times.

I suppose one of the lessons for us in that is that sometimes you have to
fail in order to succeed. It's okay to fail. Now, I know that sounds counter
cultural. We don't like to think about our failures.

If you think about it though, the more failures that you have means the more
opportunities you're creating for yourself to succeed.

Here's what the apostle Paul said, "Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye
stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as
ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord" (1 Cor. 15:58).

While sometimes it seems like your striking out, just keep swinging. One of
these days, you're sure to hit a home run!

I hope you have a great day!
