CVCC Baseball Final hype


(( Crowd Cheering)) Congratulations to the Red Hawks of Catawba Valley Community College. They will now travel to the Region Ten World Series in Enid, Oklahoma. This is a story about a warrior that lead his troops onto victory against an army ten times the size of his. This in one of my favorite stories to talk about because each and everyone of you have the same qualities of the warrior. This warrior became victorious because not only did he physically defeat them, But he beat them because of his mindset. He made a decision to save the lives in his country. See his troops thought they were going on a normal battle. That they were going to give it their best shot. But the captain, the leader, the warrior had a different agenda. He said, “This time we’re not only going to give it our best shot, we’re going to come out and win. And we’re not just going to take what’s ours, we’re going to take back everything they took from us. As they got off of their boats, he looked at the lieutenant and gave an order that silenced all of the troops. He told the lieutenant to burn each and every ship that they arrived on. He wanted him to set fire to each and every ship that brought them to the battle. It was an outrage. All the troops, all the soldiers started to panic and worry about getting home to their families. They worried about seeing their kids. Being able to bear children for their futures’ namesakes. Being able to get back to their lives. Why would the captain, why would this great warrior want to burn our only chance of getting home? But see the warrior didn’t see it that way. And that’s where a lot of us fail in here today. The warrior saw the bigger picture. He knew that they were overmatched, physically outnumbered. It was physically and numerically impossible for them to become victorious. So he had to make a decision. He changed the mindset of every one of his troops. He said, ” If you want to go home to your lives, if you want to go home to your families,” “if you want to be able to bear children for your future namesake, then today is the day it starts.” “We will not go home unless we win. Our only way off of this island is to defeat what’s in front of us.” “And the only reason we are going to win is because that is our only option.” “That’s why I gave the order to burn down those ships.” (Narrator) How many of you in here today have burned down your ships? How many of you in here today have pushed all your chips in, given it everything you’ve got? That warrior went on to lead his army to victory because they burned their ships. They had no way off unless they won the battle. They took over that country because they fought like there was no tomorrow. They fought for their wives, for their families. They fought for their future. They fought for their country. And that’s why they won. Too many of us today have so many obstacles in front of us But we have one foot in and one foot out. That’s why we continue to fail at every goal that we set. That’s why we continue to fail at every dream that we dream because we are not willing to go all in. You will be serious about your dreams and goals when you wake up and say, “I’m all in. I have burnt my ship. I am giving it everything I got.” Every time I talk to somebody about what’s stopping them from getting to their dreams and goals, they never have the right answer. The right answer is not because you didn’t have a great childhood. The right answer is not because you didn’t make good grades in school. It is not because good luck didn’t fall on your behalf. The only reason you are not where you are supposed to be is because of the same person you see every single time you look in the mirror. That person is the one who is hindering you from your blessing. That person is the one stopping you from achieving your goals that you set out. It’s time for you to look at that person, look deep down in that soul and say that today is my day. I am going to burn my ship. I am not going to look for help. I am going to do this because nobody else is going to do it for me. I am not going to stop until I see it done. I am not going to stop until my dreams become a reality. ♪♪They’re the in crowd, we’re the other ones
