The reason why you may not have yet started that thing you’ve been wanting to do — be it a new job, project, exercise plan, or any other initiative — is because you’re not sure where it will end. In baseball terms, you’re stuck in the dugout, looking out at the field and waiting to step to the plate until you’re sure you’ll hit a homerun. You’re not willing to go out on a public stage with all those people watching and just start swinging without knowing for sure that you’ll hit it out of the park.
The reality is, success comes from simply stepping to the plate and swinging. You may find that you hit a single, or a double, or that you end up bunting. You may also strike out completely. In reality, baseball games aren’t won a homerun at a time; they’re won a base at a time.
The merit is in stepping out in the bright lights and starting to swing. You’ll be surprised how many people are there to cheer you on.
You may also surprise yourself.
