There’s a Little Something I Like to Call: THE SUCK THRESHOLD

In: Confidence, Hard Stuff, Lady Balls, Success,

A few fun little facts you probably didn’t know about me:

  • I was Captain of the volleyball team.
  • Server of the Year.
  • Certified as a referee.
  • Played year round on a travel team to compete in regional tournaments.
  • And helped lead our team to the state final championships.

Another couple of fun facts:

  • I am only five foot three.
  • I also couldn’t even get the ball over the net to save my LIFE the entire first year. …Nor the second. My volleyball coach knew I had no natural talent and thought I would quit any day.

But I kept showing up.

And eventually I figured it out.

And because I was paying such close attention, once I passed the suck threshold, I catapulted straight into killer.

Eventually, skill kicks talent’s ass.

And eventually, not even being bad can prevent you from getting good.

What do you need to keep showing up to?
