Prosperity: The Choice Is Yours
June 27, 2004

It's about time you lived the life you have always imagined....
isn't it?

It's all about your perspective on what life is to you


Does Bob Berdar Have A Right To Be Upset?

Do you ever think you have troubles in life?

I'm sure you do, we all do, in fact I don't know
of anyone who doesn't.

If life has thrown you a curveball, I've got a
short story to share with you.

Tonight we played a Colt baseball game. The home plate
umpire was a gentleman named Bob Berdar. Bob is a really
good umpire along with being a friend of mine.

His daughter lives in England. Bright girl, in her twenties,
had a good job, everything going for her.

Found out this past winter she had a brain tumor.

This spring, she underwent brain surgery to remove the tumor,
which went as well as could be, however it left her in a
semi-vegetative state and took away most of her motor
skills and coordination.

Bob lives here in southwestern Pennsylvania, but made
the trip to England for a month or so to stay with his daughter.
Every day he didn't know if it would be her last day
to live or not.

When I asked Bob how his daughter was coming along, his
eyes lit up and he got a big grin on his face.

You see Bob Berdar was so happy, in fact he was ecstatic
because he had received a Father's Day card from her.

He was so happy because this formerly bright young girl was
able to scribble out her name on the card.

Then before the same game I get a call from an irate parent
who dropped their kid off at 5 O'clock and I wasn't there
yet nor was any of the other players, so they left. Sorry, I
got there at 5 minutes after 5.

Later on I get a call from another parent who cried
and threatened and moaned and became almost irate
because his kid wasn't pitching more.

Now, we've played 5 games so far, I've got 9 kids that
can pitch, 4 of our games only went to 5 innings, one game
at 7 innings......but still this kid had played at some position
every single inning in every game.

But that wasn't good enough. In fact, he didn't want to
hear that, not only did this parent believe and adamantly
believe that his kid should be playing all the time,
but that he should be pitching every other game.

What's wrong with this picture.....

If anyone has a right to be irritated and upset and
down in the dumps it's Bob Berdar. His beautiful
daughter who could do anything is now a vegetable.

But he comes to the game tonight smiling, fact
ecstatic because his can now actually scribble her name on
a card. Because his daughter is now even alive.

Here's two parents who have very healthy children,
both are good ball players, and who are getting to
play a game with all their abilities intact to be
able to run, throw, & hit a ball. But they're not happy.

Now I'm not disounting any trouble that anyone has
but some things are significantly worse than others.

And we all have bad days and perhaps these two parents
had a hairball or something today and just needed to
blow off some steam at someone.

At any rate I have a lot of respect for a man like
Bob Berdar who watched helplessly, as his daughter
almost lost her life completely, yet is able to rejoice
in one simple thing that she can do that any
kid in kindergarten can do better than her.

I hope that you will say a prayer for Bob Berdar's
daughter today, and also hope that the next time you
get ticked off at something, before you lose your cool,
take a few seconds and think..... is getting all upset
and uptight over this, really the way I want to
approach this......or perhaps is there something
that I can be rejoicing over instead.

Thanks for reading this, I hope it helped put some things
in a better perspective for you.

Your reality forms around your commitment to succeed.
If you're willing to pay the price, your circumstances will change.
If you want something badly enough, you're sure to get it.
Your desires will in time externalize themselves into concrete fact.

Obstacles don't matter very much.
Pain or other circumstances can be there.
But if you want to do something bad enough,
you'll find a way to get it done.

You only have to love a thing greatly to get it.
Desire is the fire of life.
