Change Your Life: Fall 1,000 Times But Get up 1,001

Recently, I’ve been thinking about something, I’ve been thinking about how many times people fail once and never get back to their feet try again.

I have failed a lot in my life. In fact, I’ve failed more times than I care to count. But the difference between failure and success is the willingness to get back on your feet and try the same task that you have failed multiple times.

Try the task until you have conquered it. You can try it and fail 1,000 times but get up 1,001 times.

Reggie Jackson struck out 26-hundred times in his career, the most in the history of baseball, but people only remember the home runs. Thomas Edison attempted 1,000 failed experiments but his 1,0001st experiment was the light bulb.

But do you know why they succeeded? Because they refused to let failure get the best of them.

At some point in your life, you will fail, it’s a part of life.

Sure, you can win 1,000 times, but you will lose more than once. If we succeeded in everything we do every time we did it, success wouldn’t be worth celebrating because we would be used to it.

They say run towards your dream, but if you run towards it, you will be winded once you get there. Walk towards your dream and you will have enough energy to execute your dream to fullest extent.

Hank Aaron failed more than once, Babe Ruth failed more than once.

You see, failure is inevitable. You will fail, but do you have what it takes to succeed one time and change your life? Fall 1,000 times but get up 1,001.

Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium

For many people, they think that Turner Field was the original home of the Atlanta Braves, but it was actually Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium, which served as the Home of the Braves from 1966 to 1996. In fact, it saw four World Series appearances (’91, ’92, ’95, ’96) and one World Series title (’95). It also hosted the 1972 MLB All-Star Game, this is the place where the person whom many still consider the home run king, Hank Aaron, hit his 500th, 600th, 700th and 715th home runs. The hallowed grounds of Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium saw three Cy Young Award winners during its tenure as the Home of the Braves, John Smoltz, Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine in the late 1990s. The stadium closed on October 24, 1996, the year before the Braves moved across the street to the famed Turner Field. Although it was no longer being used as a baseball stadium, Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium was turned into a parking lot for Turner Field. Even after being turned into a parking lot, the concrete still contained the outline of the original infield outline and the original wall as well as marker commemorating Aaron’s historic record-breaking 715th home run. The parking lot is still being used today and serves guests of Georgia State Stadium (formerly Turner Field), which currently serves the Georgia State University Panthers football program.
