## Play The Basebll Game Math The Right Way!

Take Me to The Ball Game…” I love this song, how about you?

Eye on the Ball.”

“Focus on the Batter!”

“Good swing, honey!”

“Run, steal the base!”

“Shake it off, Sweetie!”

“Come on, You Can Do it!”

Are you familiar with these comments?

I know this because I have been watching my kids’ baseball games in the past five years, I love baseball!

Math is in every baseball game, for each player, there is a matter of number of balls, and number of strikes each time he bats, plus number of bases he has advanced, it is on record. For each team, these is a matter of number of innings, number of scores made by each player, plus the order of batting, are you the first one to bat or the last one to bat?

Baseball math is meaningful if and only if it is for temporary facts, not for madness or frictions!

Results do not matter! Your involvements, the progress you have made via practices and competitions, the experiences you have gained in the game matter!

Never mind who batted first, who batted last! Math is for record, not for boasting or upsetting! You don’t need to be the fastest runner to hit a home run, you don’t have to be the tallest guy in your team to get out a batter from your opponent team, and you never need to become a pitcher to get center attentions from the crowds!

Baseball is fun because it is a game of democracy,  you have an equal opportunity to stand in front of the fans and get your batting done, you gain team player skills and upgrade your world views through the game itself!

I love baseball, I love the ball game song, and I wish you the best on the games you have to play!

Be fair

That’s what you shall care

When the game is over

No despair!

Go, game players,

Run the bases,

Say your prayers,

Seize the power of faith and confidences,

Make the world series!

Consider life as a baseball game, we do math, we don’t go down with losing scores, if we can do it this way, baseball math is going to be fun to play to pass the day!

Enjoy The Best Day by Playing Baseball Game Math The Right Way!

## Find Out How Devine You Can Be!

If all the principals

At all of the schools

Could turn all their teachers

Into orchestra conductors,

Then all the students

In all of their classrooms

Would perform their pieces of art

Musically and cheerfully, with No Disasters!

If all the parents

In all of the households

Could express their concerns and worries

In humor and laughter,

Then all the children

From all over the world

Would succeed their studies, and

Live happily ever after!

Life is an illusion, only a person as wise as you, can lift the fogs that bar one’s view to see the truth.

Life is better lived because of your courage, providence, and penetrating insights. Not everything is meant to be a mystery, not everything is supposed to be difficult, nothing can be claimed until you conclude it is, you are the rule of the game, you can make a difference the way you can never image!

Stop torturing yourself! It solves No problems at all!

Stop doubting your ability! You can always learn and get it!

There is a good reason to all sadness, madness, and pains! You are not the only soul who feels trapped, wronged, misunderstood, misled, fallen, or hurt! Without darkness, there will be no joy of seeing the light of hope. Without struggles, there will be no discovery of genuine friendships, realizations, and inner strength.

You dream about adventurous life, you hunger for a land of plenty, you wait for a time of bliss! All these desires decide all the obstacles in your way.  And you are given opportunities to overcome these setbacks, detours, barriers, and sufferings! Once you have gone beyond the time and space, you become a better being!

Remain the course! You will be there! Your day will arrive! when you prevail, your names will be recorded in Heaven, and you will find out how divine you can be!

## Confidence Is Everything

Confidence builds the foundation for what might happen in one’s life span. If you don’t believe that you can do better, then neither will anyone else.

Being confident does not imply being unrealistic, or being self-boasting. Having confidence within you makes a difference in your performances. You trust your instincts, believe in your ability, and radiate encouraging energy about your environment. Confidence means that you care, and you are trustworthy enough to reach your goals.

Confidence serves as a backbone to your career success or to your learning power. Confidence motivates people to actions. Confidence clears the blockages in your body, mind, and spirit to open new doors for your future.

Confidence gives your hope to move on.  Without confidence, there will be no imaginations, desires, directions, interests, or clues to follow.

Be confident, your life will be switched into a channel filled with surprises, cheers, and fulfillment!
