You miss 100% of the shots you never take
Of course, spoken by “The Great One”, Mr. Wayne Douglas Gretzky. Wayne Gretzky should know a thing or two about taking shots. Over the course of his illustrious career his 894 goals, 1963 assists, 2857 points and 50, yes 50, “Hat tricks” (3 goals in a single game) still boggle the mind even today. *Those stats don’t even include the post season* But Wayne knew the intrinsic value, overall necessity and the vital importance of putting the puck on the net and taking….”the shot”. You see, you truly do “miss” 100% of the shots you never take.
So here I sit in the closing weeks of December, in the year of our Lord 2017, contemplating taking my next “shot”. Here I sit, with now, 20 years of Chiropractic experience under my belt. Here I sit, my children are grown, moved out of my house (Hallelujah!!!) and starting lives of their own. Here I sit, in a state of relative “Comfort”. Why oh why would I even consider launching out into the deep and take this next “shot”? Because “You miss 100% of the shots you never take.”
What is this next shot you may ask? Well, after the New Year, I’m happy to announce that Trinity Chiropractic will be expanding to a second location in downtown Knoxville. I will occupy Suite 700 in the 1st Tennessee building on S. Gay St. I’ll be starting over from scratch. The new kid on the block so to speak. It’s a challenge that both excites and terrifies me at the same time. It’s a “shot” that is certainly outside of my comfort zone. And to be perfectly honest with you, there is a side of me that is asking the question, “Why are you doing this?” And one resounding answer keeps coming back. Because “You miss 100% of the shots you never take.”
So what about you? What’s the “shot” that you’re hesitant to take? Is it taking a new job? Getting a new degree? Writing your first book? Launching out in a new direction in life? Are you “too old”? Too broke? Too broken? Too overloaded? Is the voice of fear and doubt screaming louder than the voice of hope and possibility? There is one undeniable truth about your “shot” and mine. You miss 100% of the shots you never take.
