It was around this time 4 years ago that I was invited to play pickup basketball at my church in the mornings.
Shamefully, the first thing I asked myself was, “Do I still got it?” (bad English, I know)
And you know what? When I first showed up, I didn’t have it. It had been almost a decade since I played and it certainly showed. Bad passing. Horrible shooting. I got tired quickly. Ugh.
Yet, I kept showing up.
And with every pickup game, I got a little bit better.
Even though I am a little slower and one of the oldest players there, I can proudly say… “I still got it.” I certainly wouldn’t be a first round draft pick, but I can at least run and up and down the court with those youngsters and sneak in some 3-pointers 🙂
The ONLY way to find out was to show up.
Is there something in your life that has you asking, “Do I still have it?”
Whether it’s a pickup sport, writing a book, starting your own business, or anything else… don’t you think it’s time to find out?
Show up. You only have one life to find out.
Show. Rise. Hustle.
