"Yesterday's home runs don't win today's games."
There is a drive in certain individuals... check that. It's not necessary drive. It's not passion. It's not responsibility. It's not dedication or desire...It's uncomfortable chafing of satisfaction.
There is an uncomfortableness in certain individuals with standing still that causes them to always push forward.Babe Ruth set the all time career home runs record at 139 in 1921.
He then went on to hit another 575 home runs in his career for a total 714. Think about that for a second... He was the all time career home run leader. No one had ever hit as many home runs as Babe Ruth. His place in history was set...
...yet he pushed himself to hit another 575.
I'd like to say this constant push forward is forgetfulness, but it's not. We don't forget the achievements of yesterday, we celebrate them briefly, maybe, but ultimately these individuals are always unsatisfied.The truth is, for all the personal issues Babe Ruth created for himself, he was utterly unsatisfied with yesterday's achievements.
We can learn from this...
It's not healthy to be so unsatisfied that you let your life fall apart despite your success. That's where Babe Ruth made his mistakes and paid for them.What we learn is that being overly satisfied with yesterday creates complacency today. Complacency today destroys success tomorrow. #successhabits #successquotes #business
It's Monday and I'm in a mood. I hope this helps in some way.
