If there’s anything we’ve learned after the underdog team, it’s Washington citizensbeat the hard favorite Houston Astros to win the World Championship 2019 Last week, it’s this: to win, you have to have a heart! If you don’t believe in yourself, if you don’t get up after your fall, you won’t have a chance to achieve your goals. This applies to successful change Which Usually a character or something about the world. Hear what the citizens of Washington have to say about picking yourself up again after failure — frequently!
third man base Anthony Rendon: “Just try to keep going!”
first base man, Ryan Zimmerman: “What choice did we have?”
boss, Dave Martinez: “They counted us, knocked us down, had early injuries, and didn’t perform as well as we wanted…I thought from day one this thing was going to turn around.”
Director general, Mike Rizzo: “Even when things were bad, even when it seemed like there was no way out in the spring, they were professionals. They never wavered… But these guys, they are confident, they really are. And they don’t. He will never lose that confidence or focus. Regardless of the situation.”
owner, Ted Lerner: “They say good things come to those who wait. 95 years is a very long wait. But I’ll tell you, it’s worth the wait.”
Studies show that long-term weight loss portfolios do the same:
Successful weight maintainers do things differently than people who lose weight and gain it back: they recover from slips. Instead of allowing themselves to make excuses, fall back into old, unhealthy habits and relapse, successful lifelong weight maintainers see “mistakes” as normal. They learn lessons and try not to be emotional or overreact. They are objective, analytical, and kind to themselves. They skip coupons, go back to the top, and move on. After all, do you really expect to be perfect?
One of my slogans over the years, which I borrowed from World War II the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Winston Churchillis, “If you’re going through hell, go on…never give up, never give up, never, never, ever!”
It’s not always easy, including for me. This is because we are human and naturally flawed. But I firmly believe that we must live by this philosophy when it comes to doing good in the world or for ourselves.
Like the racy “Damn Yankees,” sung by old Washington senators — before they finally beat the New York Yankees through (unbeknownst to) a deal with the devil: You must have a heart! All you really need is a heart! When the odds say you’ll never win; This is when the smile should start! You have hope! You don’t have to sit and sweep! Half Nutten is as bad as it may sound; We’ll wait next year hopefully!
