“You hit home runs not by chance, but by preparation.”—Roger Maris
Anyone can get lucky and run into a pitch. One home run can be luck.
Hitting 50+ a year? That is preparation, practice, continuous improvement as the pitchers adjust and try to exploit your weaknesses.
It is showing up even when you are tired and focusing in on the moment at hand.
It is doing the hundreds and thousands of hours of work to be able to take advantage of a millisecond of opportunity.
It is turning another’s mistake into your longball.
Be ready to swing for the fences.
