"You'll always miss 100% of the shots you don't take."
Too many people go through life believing it is a one shot deal - a hit or miss proposition. They somehow buy into the notion that if they shot and miss the mark, they'll never get the opportunity to shoot again. Nothing could be further from the truth.
If life is any one thing, it is a multiple shot extravaganza, a shooting gallery where you can load up and fire away to your hearts content. Just like the basketball booth at the local fair, you can shoot over and over again until you make the shot. But unlike the carnival basketball stand, the prizes you win from making life's shot are much better, much grander.
But in order to make the shot, you've got to take the shot in the first place. And that's where the problem starts and unfortunately stays with many folks. They are so worried about missing the shot, so overly concerned about what may happen if they shoot and miss, that they never get around to taking the shot; never get around to pulling the trigger. Not even one shot! As a result, they miss out on the best life has to offer.
How about you? Do you take your best shot at life daily or do you hold something back, not quite willing to let it fly? Do you throw caution to the wind and shoot and shoot and shot some more - or do you sit on the sidelines and watch the shooters have all the fun?
"I've always believed no matter how many shots I miss, I'm going to make the next one."
There are all sorts of things each of us wants to enjoy while we still can; a wide assortment of things we want to get done before it's too late, before our time runs out. If you're like most of us, you've got quite a list yourself; brimming with fun things, exciting things, exhilarating things that you long to accomplish and achieve in your lifetime.
We all have a list of things we want to feel, sense and experience, things we desperately want to achieve. We know there's a whole other world out there someplace; an untapped realm of unfulfilled promise that begs us to come and see what life is really all about. A world we've never previously experienced; a world full of exciting ventures and action packed adventures that can turn our lives around.
"Over the years, I've had hundreds of shots blocked. You've got to go in and take chances."
We can go through our lives wishing and wanting these things to occur, wasting one chance after another while we sit on the sidelines - or we can make them come alive by getting out there and taking our best shot. So what if you miss a shot - or two - or a thousand or more? That's no big deal. EVERYBODY misses shots every day, even the best that ever graced this planet miss now and again.
As a matter of fact, the very best have missed more shots than most people ever take. Why? Simply put, these champions were not afraid of missing. Now do these top achieving individuals enjoy missing? Of course not, but they also realize that the only way they can get where they've dreamed of going is to shoot and shoot some more. If they miss, they just load up and fire again and again. And so must you.
"Each shot is important."
You have prized aspirations you hold close to your heart, cherished dreams you desperately want to come true. The only chance you have of living these dreams is to take a shot at them; your very best shot. If you miss, then take another shot and then another. Don't worry about the last shot you missed, just focus on making the next one.
It's been said that big shots are nothing more than little shots who kept on shooting. So go ahead, take your best shot and see where it takes you. And while you're at it, aim as high as you can. If you truly want to experience heaven on earth, then shoot for the stars.
The Bottom Line: You'll never really know for sure how great your life can become... unless you're willing to take your best shot.
