My husband is going to die when he hears about this, but in this episode, I’m talking about the Philadelphia Phillies.
Belief is EVERYTHING, and in this episode (although it’s baseball related), I’m sharing all about the power of believing in yourself, even during the hardest times.
So, here’s the story:
Philly’s fans are notoriously really intense. When the team is winning and putting out the effort, the city rallies behind them 100%. However, they also have a reputation for being super hard on players when they’re not doing so hot. Like, it’s rough!
So, last year, the Phillies went to the World Series. They were the underdog team and nobody expected to see them there. And while they didn’t win, it made this past season highly anticipated.
Well, the season did not have a good start and one of their top players, Trea Turner, he was stinking up the place. He was not doing good, could not get ahead. Shit was bad. Now, as I said before, Phillies fans can get rough on their players when they aren’t doing a good job.
However, somewhere in the middle of the season (and I get chills just thinking about it), Trea Turner goes up to bat, and instead of the fans booing him, every single fan in the stadium stood up and cheered for him. It was them saying, “We’ve got your back. We believe in you. You’re our guy.”
You want to know what happened?
He got a hit. And this is important because as soon as he knew that people believed in him, it reminded him that he is good and that he has people behind him. Instead of putting him down, they lifted him up, and not only did the game turn around, but the rest of the season turned around. They made it all the way to the playoffs!
Because here’s the thing: Everyone has bad days, bad weeks, bad months. We all get into slumps, and the only way to get out of a slump is to believe in yourself. And it can be really freaking hard to do sometimes, especially when things aren’t going your way, but when you have a community of people in your corner, it can change literally EVERYTHING.
