Never let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game. (Babe Ruth, late baseball start)
Babe Ruth held the record for having struck out more times than anyone else in his era. But he wasn’t noted for strike outs but for home runs—a record he held for many years. He didn’t let his failure to hit on many occasions keep him from trying to get a hit the next time. That’s a pretty good lesson for all of us. To keep on trying after making an error is the way to success.
Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. (Matthew 7:7)
