The example that was used for this lesson came from when our youngest son, Will was playing for a new baseball team.

Until that time, my husband Stephen had always served as the boy’s coach, so knew their strong skills and abilities, but this was a new coach and team; they were just getting to know each other. As I recall this was the first real game situation, so we were all learning one another. I was a nervous wreck.

The lesson I took away from this experience was that when possible try every position: back catcher, Pitcher, Short stop.

Let your boss and organization sees you stumble, get up and move on to the next assignment. When you find your niche they can celebrate with you.

Note: As I recall, Will never hesitated when asked to play a different position, He just moved on. I do not recall if we won that game. (Somehow I don’t think we did.)
