A boy stood on the baseball field and proclaimed, “I am the greatest hitter of all time!” He then tossed a ball into the air and took a huge swing. He missed.
He repeated, “I am the greatest hitter of all time!” Again, he tossed the ball into the air, swung, and missed.
The boy repeated, “I’m the greatest hitter of all time!” And once more, he swung at the ball and missed.
Unfazed, the boy declared, “I am the greatest pitcher of all time!”
The lesson? Don’t try to be something you’re not.
