"The difference between the impossible and the possible lies in a person's determination"
- Tommy Lasorda
Tommy Lasorda is a baseball legend. He spent 21 years managing the Dodgers winning 2 World Series titles in 4 appearances. But what many don't know is that Tommy's original dream was to become the best pitcher in Major League Baseball. He made it to the majors but in 3 seasons he was 0-4 as a starter with a 6.4 ERA. But despite not making it big as a pro baseball player one of Tommy's greatest moments was being on the mound pitching against the great Yogi Berra. It was because he dreamt of that moment all his life. He believed in his dream so much that it actually became a reality.
Whatever it is that you want in your life you have to believe. Check out this short video of Tommy Lasorda talking about why you've got to believe and have self-confidence in order to succeed.
RIP Tommy Lasorda.
