What does Brad Pitt and "Moneyball" Have to do with Anything?

"You're not going to win by automatically going out there. It's hard to know what people really expect of you, and I've never tried to live up to expectations anyway. That's no way to play baseball."

If you haven't watched "Moneyball" with Brad Pitt, you should.  There are so many lessons to be learned in this movie.  He is a divorced dad that brings a baseball team out of the dwelling in the basement.  Can you believe in your self again? Yes you can!  Billy Bean did. What do I think of every time I see this movie?  Well glad you asked.  Here goes:

Life throws a curve ball...catch it

Think you need a lot of money to do something? 
One base at a time eventually becomes a run in.

Think your family is crazy? 
Yea you might hit a homerun there but they still love you.

Feel like you're about to strike out in life? What do you do? 
 Strike out or walk  and get on base? Either way that pitcher staring you down helped you get there.  Don't forget the ones who were there to mold you - nemesis or friend.
