In cricket, we call it “the sweet spot.”
That’s when you hit the ball right off the centre of your bat.
For those who have played the game, you know what I’m talking about. The feeling you get when your bat connects with the ball; the connection felt through your hands, your wrists, your forearms. You know it’s perfect, dead centre… and there’s no other sound like it, the satisfying “thump” from a clean hit so very different from a miscue.
It’s a blissful moment.
But it takes a lot of practice to find the sweet spot of the bat. Lots of miss-hits, nicks and frustration as you find your perfect timing.
There is no skipping this process.
No amount of “good thoughts” or “belief” or “affirmations” will ever take the place of actually getting out in the middle and swinging the willow.

The best cricketers have coaches who keep them on track, point out their weaknesses, and highlight their strengths. But it’s doing the hard yards, the grunt work where there is no audience to cheer you on, that’s where success is to be found; no matter what your vocation.
But here’s a little secret: You CAN’T do a three-day seminar on this… you’ll have the room to yourself.
You can’t tell the masses success takes hard work, commitment and focus.
Nah. They want secrets; they want undeserved recognition and success.
You’re smarter than this.
Finding your own “sweet spot” is gonna take time. Might as well enjoy the trip as you go; that way, the destination is always brighter and a whole lot sweeter.
