Persistence Pays Off

I was talking to one of our kids this weekend about the importance of “trying again”.  The Michael Jordanconstant cycle of trying and failing.  Yes, you will fail.  But get back up and try again.  Specifically, we were discussing sports.  He LOVES sports!  But when the spotlight is on him he tends to choke.  He is too afraid of what others may say or think if he doesn’t do well.

Last year he was in basketball and it really was difficult to watch.  He would make it to the end of the court and then pass the ball.  He would not even try to make a basket “in case he missed”.  He did not want to be embarrassed in front of his friends.

There is an important lesson in this photograph that also reminds me of the persistent woman aka Shameless Audacity and of Then You Stand.

“For though the righteous fall seven times, they rise again.”  Pro 24:16.

Get back up 🙂
