I Am The Greatest

you-can-do-it

 

I have always felt that music is the perfect explanation of life. No matter how you are feeling, you can find a song that describes it perfectly…that gives you exactly what you need.

I have been pretty down lately. As it happens, on my way into work, I flipped from my normal hard rock and metal station over to a 90s country station…(I am very eclectic)…and I heard exactly the song I needed to in that moment…It reminded me that life is all about perspective. I touched on this a little bit the other day, but I just wanted to iterate the importance of perspective.

Read it…imagine it in Kenny Rogers voice…and just remember…you may not be the greatest in the area you expected, but you probably are in an area you never dreamed of.

 

“I Am The Greatest”
Kenny Rogers

Little boy, in a baseball hat stands in the field with his ball and bat.
Says, “I am the greatest player of them all” puts his bat on his shoulder and he tosses up his ball.
And the ball goes up and the ball comes down swings his bat all the way around
The world so still you can hear the sound, the baseball falls to the ground.
Now the little boy doesn’t say a word, picks up his ball, he is undeterred.
Says, “I am the greatest there has ever been” and he grits his teeth and he tries it again.
And the ball goes up and the ball comes down swings his bat all the way around
The world so still you can hear the sound, the baseball falls to the ground.
He makes no excuses, he shows no fear, he just closes his eyes and listens to the cheers.
Little boy, he adjusts his hat, picks up his ball, stares at his bat
Says,”I am the greatest, the game is on the line” and he gives his all one last time.
And the ball goes up and the moon so bright, swings his bat with all his might
The world’s as still, as still can be, the baseball falls and that’s strike three.
Now it’s suppertime and his momma calls, little boy starts home with his bat and ball.
Says, “I am the greatest, that is a fact, but even I didn’t know I could pitch like that!”
Says, “I am the greatest, that is understood, but even I didn’t know I could pitch that good!”
