Kinja Dixon: “Own Your Hits, Then Turn Them Into Home Runs”

That above statement sounds good, but there was a time where I completely disagreed. For a huge part of my life, the outside events controlled the thoughts that I had on the inside. Most of my earlier life when I would get “HIT” with the curveballs that life threw (missed sales target, disagreements, speeding ticket and the list can go on and on) I would always run “HOME”, which could be a number of “safe” activities that would “take me away” from my hurt. Those activities consisted of a mixture of excessive TV watching, drinking, partying, over-eating, etc. What are your safe zones? This interactive presentation addresses over-all life development at the core by sharing a simple approach on how to completely change your perceptions and turn all life “HITS” into HOME RUNS.
