Could there really be a pattern on how to do life that makes sense? Yes there is and "Home Run" lays out such a pattern!
What is success in life? And isn't success better when there is someone to share it with? And let's look in the mirror. Can we hold our head up high with self-respect? Is our success significant?
Success -> Someone -> Self-Respect -> Significance
Kevin Myers and John Maxwell reveal both a remarkable and simple pattern, using the analogy of baseball, to lay out what we should and could be doing with the only life we have...the one we are living today. Tomorrow is not promised to any of us.
If you are tired of living a random life; if you are tired of wondering where you are and what you should even do next; if you want to tap into a power and develop the tools necessary to live a life that will sparkle, inspire, impact and transform both yourself and the world then read, internalize and apply "the diamond life," i.e. the pattern laid out in "Home Run."
Home Plate - Connection. Everything begins and ends here; it is where you hit (connect with) the ball and cross back over to score. Here we learn how to "connect" our purpose with God's power.
First base - Character. Win within. What happens most of the time when a player comes up to bat? They fail to reach first base. All along the journey of life all of us, at one time or another, let character issues get in our way - anger, addictions, selfishness, procrastination, gossip, lust...we all get it...but how do we control it? Myers and Maxwell show us how to win first base.
Second base - Community. Win with others. Whew, sometimes "getting along" is the most impossible thing to do. But stop and think about it. Aren't the greatest and most memorable times in life the times when we share meaningful moments with others? Learning to win second base ensures we will have more meaningful moments with others.
Third base - Competence. Win results. And it is more than just performance. It is abundance.
Home Plate - Score. How to keep living and keep winning.
The choice is ours.
Thank you Kevin Myers and John Maxwell for pouring yourself into our lives through this book and into the countless lives of millions.
Don't procrastinate. Start your "home run" life today.
Kevin provides a simple, but effective, approach to focusing your life and your talents. Spending time with Kevin, John and God in the morning - realizing my strength and purpose - allows me to get closer to what God wants to do in my life. However, as with anything, Kevin reminds us constantly that God talks to us and we just need to listen.
Kevin does a great job with the baseball analogy and touching each base. The power of prayer is so important as you touch each base, but mostly for revealing and completing God's plan. Kevin's focus on prayer through out the book is a constant encouragement.
The use of the baseball diamond has been like our parable, because we all have bases in life that we want to achieve. Although the diamond method is nothing new, when I was in my youth ministry class we used the diamond as a way to picture our Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and to the utermost parts of the earth. This book is a great tool when doing discipleship because it gets you to answer the hard questions that you are afraid of asking. If you want anything in life so badly then the only way we hit a homerun is to put our hope, faith, trust, prayer, in Jesus Christ himself. We will not get very far without him. I really enjoyed reading both John and Kevins words that I took them to heart.
