You Can Do It

I can do all things through Christ,
because he gives me strength.
      —Philippians 4:13

In 2014, José Altuve became the first professional baseball player in eighty years to rack up 130 hits and 40 stolen bases; from 2014–2017, he led the American League, with 200+ hits each season; in 2017, he won the AL Most Valuable Player Award.

At 5 feet 6 inches—the shortest MLB player on the planet—José looks more like a team mascot than the champion athlete that he is.

We pull for the underdog. It gives us hope. If he can do it with the odds stacked against him, there’s hope for us.

Henry Ford said, “Whether you think you can, or think you can’t—you’re right.”

You can do it. Put in the work, step up to the plate, and swing for the fence.

Winners do things that losers are too lazy to do.
