Harbor, River or Ocean? Written By Dalton Ruer
A harbor is a great place for a ship to be. It can still feel the water beneath it but it is completely safe. A river is also a nice option. It requires the ship to leave the safety and comfort of the harbor but it allows the ship to splash around and feel the wind its face a while presenting very little harm. An ocean on the other hand is the most dangerous place for a ship to be because it is much more unpredictable and presents the greatest risks.
My friend great ships aren’t meant to be docked in the harbor. They aren’t built to merely float in the safety of a calm river. They are constructed in a manner worthy of being set free to undertake great voyages. Yes there is greater risk at sea, but the rewards are unreachable without taking the risks.
My question for you this week is a pretty simple one. If your softball career is like a ship are you sitting still in the harbor, meandering in the safety of a calm river or are you casting your sails to the wind and risking the dangers of the ocean in order to achieve the greatest rewards?
