Minute Maid Park

Advertising genius David Ogilvy once said, “Don’t bunt.  Aim out of the ball park.  Aim for the company of immortals.”

It’s a great reminder that when an opportunity comes your way, give it everything that you’ve got.

Don’t just give it a little tap.

Don’t try to get away with the smallest hit possible to keep the ball in play.

Don’t do the bare minimum.

Give it a big swing.

Try to hit it out of the park.

Work hard and commit yourself to what you’re trying to achieve.

You may strike out.

You may think that you’ll look silly if you miss.

But that’s what it takes to be successful.

It takes a commitment to not accept second best from yourself, the courage to take risks and the knowledge that if you miss this time, you’ll get another shot at it.

So today, and every day, take advantage of every opportunity that you get to perform at your best and perhaps, every now and then, you’ll hit it out of the park!

And know that we’ll be here to cheer you on when you do!
