Life is like a Baseball Game

Most assuredly, you have already read a lot of similes & metaphors written to describe life. We can find it anywhere.

Strikingly enough, our individual description about life is a reflection of how we came to manage our life.

To some of you, this simile that you are about to read will not only talk to your soul but also exactly the game you are playing.

Life is like a baseball game.

If you have gone to one baseball game in your life and were keen to observe how the game is played, you will know that a player waits to strike the ball pitched by the pitcher. The player will try its very best to strike it so hard so the ball will fly high, away from the catchers. As the ball travels to mid-air, the player runs fast to the first base and if the opportunity is still there to the second base, third base, and finally back to homebase.

One homerun. One point for the player’s team.

Life is no different from a baseball game.

You are the player. You strike the ball as hard as you can. This ball is both the opportunity and the challenges that life throws at you. Yes, there are times when you cannot hit the ball. But that’s okay. There is always a second chance.

As you hit the ball, you run to first base. Being the player you focus your attention to the first base. That is your goal. But that is not the entirety of your goal. That is only a part of your goal. So do not go into debt celebrating a party for an accomplishment that is not yet full. It is okay to celebrate, just do not overdo it.

As a player, you do not pick trash on your way to the next base. Or sing or dance. But you try your best to swiftly finagle around the contending team on the field to reach the next base.

On your way to the next goal, do not pick-up bitterness, resentments, blames, anger or hate. Guilt, fear, worry and unforgiveness are a waste of emotions. But often, we pick them a lot thinking that they motivate us to reach our goal. They do not make your travel to the next base easy. They will only burden your plight. And if ever you reach your next goal, they will only limit the happiness you ought to enjoy.

Baseball is an active game. It requires speed, agility, strength and power. You are that player. When you were put in this life, you already have those qualities in you. You have all that you need to have a homerun. The One intelligent source we call God has made you fully equipped.

I did not tell you to be busy. I am telling you to be active. A lot of times you make your life so busy thinking you have accomplished so many things but really the only thing it did is to drain you of your energy and vitality. You did not really have a joyful life at all. And once time is wasted it never replenishes itself anymore.

It is history. Are you writing a good history?

Like a baseball game, there are times when you experience delays and you need to wait. There are times when you get a foul. There are times when you have to repeat from the first base. Do not be surrender your power. That’s part of the game. That’s part of your story of victory.

Learn the kind of game you are playing. If you are one of the players in this baseball game then master that game. Become the star player. Become the winner. Be the champion.
