“Every strike brings me closer to the next home run.” -Babe Ruth
I believe what Babe meant by this quote is that no effort is wasted. Any efforts you make in pursuit of your calling, even if you strike out, are still worth it because they put you closer to your next home run. If you’ve done anything to pursue your calling, it’s not time wasted. It’s time invested, and all that practice in pursuit of your calling will eventually pay off.
God bless! Keep at it.
