One of my other favorite scenes from “The Sandlot” was when the leader of the group is inviting the new kid to come play with them.
The new kid makes a series of excuses (no glove, etc.) and the leader of the group takes away all of the excuses by giving him a glove, etc.
We all need someone to come into our lives and do that for us sometimes.
We need someone to cut through all of our excuses and pull us out of our comfort zone.
Someone to show us that we don’t really have anything holding us back.
If you have someone in your life like that, be grateful.
Be that leader for someone you love.
Challenge them to break through something you have seen them make excuses about.
Take away their excuses. Leave them with no choice but to step forward.
Make it a great day.
