STOUT Inspiration + Action To Accelerate Your Week: How To Power Through A Pivot


George Herman “Babe” Ruth Jr. was a MLB baseball player considered by many to be the greatest of all time and one of the “first five” members elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame.

Though famous for his legendary batting skills, Ruth actually began his career as a well-respected pitcher. His career took a major pivot when it became clear to managers that his batting skills were too good to be left out of the regular lineup.

Traded to the New York Yankees, he transitioned to a full time outfielder and from that position began his famous career, setting a host of MLB batting records and leading the team to seven American League pennants and four World Series titles.

“Never let the fear of striking out get in your way.”
– Babe Ruth



Drop What Isn’t Working
Anything that is not serving you, is working against you- take a hard look and be prepared to let go, even of things in which you have invested time and money.

Strategize A New Approach
Evaluate if it is your goal that needs adjusting, or the path you have chosen to get there. Once you know what needs a fresh approach, you can set a proper strategy for your course correction.
Remember: Babe Ruth’s goal was to be a great ball player-he just pivoted from pitching to hitting to get there.

Dig In And Play Through
Keep in mind that shifting course is growing not giving up. So once you find a new goal or path that better fits living your purpose-driven life, give it your all and play through to success!
