It was hard to hide my disappointment last night as I watched the Texas Rangers practically give a World Series victory to the St. Louis Cardinals. Were they playing as hard as they could have? Thursday night they gave up a 2-run lead in the 9th inning. Last night, they scored two runs in the first inning and failed to score again for the rest of the game.
Now let’s talk about me – and perhaps you too. Are there areas in which I have started out great and gradually seen progress taper off in hopes that worthy accomplishments would come easy? Yes, I’m afraid there have been many instances of that.
It is important to practice hard, play hard, and fight hard. Previous progress is in vain if it is not followed by more progress.
