“The question isn’t who is going to let me; it’s who is going to stop me,” said author and philosopher Ayn Rand. Rand was bold and confident and brash in a time when a lady was expected to be meek and mild and acquiescent. She attacked life at every turn, defying conventional expectations and surpassing preconceived limits. She was unafraid to be herself and unashamed to pursue greatness. She made great enemies; she made great friends; she made great works. Her destiny was greatness and she was unstoppable in her quest.

Use the same mentality as a hitter. Re-frame her quote: “the question isn’t if I can hit this pitcher; it’s which pitcher is going to stop me.” Attack your preferred pitch without doubt or hesitation. Be unafraid of failure and think only of success. Be bold and daring and aggressive. Act as if you are incapable of failure, this pitch, no matter the previous result. Fulfill your destiny of greatness; be unstoppable!
