It’s a game-changer.
We’ve all heard the phrase before. But sometimes it comes down to not trying to change the game, but your game.
Nobody reinvents this game.
So goes the line in Moneyball. It might be true if you’re talking about the general perception of something.
The majority’s perception.
What the commonly held belief is.
Forget about the game as most know it. Play your own. You know that thing you’re struggling with — the one that keeps you up at night and makes you toss and turn, maybe even awakening you in a restless sweat?
Give it a makeover. Give it the boot. Give it the finger if you want. But most importantly, give the usual perception of it up.
Give it up.
Your game is nobody else’s.
You might not be using statistics to deal with the curse of the Bambino, but you don’t have to. There is no curse in this case.
Repeat after me: “There is no curse.”
Maybe all you need to do is let your head overrule your heart. Or maybe it’s time to let your heart overrule your head.
Life is a maze and love is a riddle.
Changing your game will inevitably feel uncomfortable. After all, it goes against everything you’ve done before. But change is one of those necessary evils to get out of the holding pattern you’re in.
Just enjoy the show.
Tonight I am thankful for knowing that enjoying the show will entail doing some things that might go against our grain. A change in our thought process, in our habits, in what comes naturally. But if we’re not enjoying the current show, turning it on its head is necessary to get the love for it back.
Here’s to the game-changer.
