Happy #MotivationalMonday (7/08/19)
Hunter Pence was asked if he was disappointed that he wouldn’t be able to play in the upcoming All-Star game because of a recent injury.
Pence replied, “I got hurt in a big league game playing as hard as I can. How can I be disappointed when in the off-season I didn’t even have a job, it’s all perspective! This is an amazing opportunity, I got selected and I am going to appreciate it. I will work as hard as I can to get back to being healthy.”
Pence has really struggled the last couple of seasons, so he has to be excited about his All-Star performance for the first half of this season. Unfortunately, he is injured and can not participate, but instead of having a fixed (negative) mindset, he sees all of the fruits of his labor.
How many of us look at setbacks in our life this way? It is kind of hard to move forward towards success if you are only looking behind you at your setbacks.
