Be the Ball
This is one of my favorite lines from the movie Caddyshack. #Caddyshack is a 1980s comedy about a stuffy, snobby #GolfResort, completely upended by a brash and talented golfer played by Chevy Chase. He breaks all the rules, purposely goes against the old guard, and disrupts their pretentious and “Swampy?” ways. So the line “Be the ball” is where #ChevyChase is teaching a young caddy, named Danny, in a very #Yoda -like fashion, the #SecretToSuccess . He tells young Danny to shut out all the noise, focus in on the goal you want to achieve, and #UseTheForce to #BeTheBall .
While I was thinking about that phrase, I kept thinking about people who seem to be effortlessly great at what they do. I kept thinking about what they do that elevates them to the very top of their game, their industry, their social sphere, and so forth. And, I think that Chevy Chase’s character was on to something. He is telling young Danny that how we interact with our surroundings is everything. Where we allow our energy to be pulled, how we practice or train, and how we execute our “swing” is everything.
Look at Michael Jordan. He is one of the best #NBA basketball players ever. But, he had to earn that, and he was up against some serious competition. Through trial, failure, focus & perseverance he became the #Champion we know him to be. Inside the Arena, the way that he interacted with the court, the other players, and the ball is what made him great. And, we can draw from all of these elements as we consider how we are (if we are) protecting our #ConstitutionalRights and the #SecondAmendment .
So, let’s take all the elements I just mentioned. There is an #Arena , a court, other players, and the ball. So, how does that relate to those of us who value our Constitutional Rights? What is our playing field? #Politics , certainly. But, what feeds politics? #Culture - & how people view those of us who own #Firearms.
So, the modern #AmericanCulture is our Arena. Arenas change over time & in different cities & states where #MichaelJordan played, just like our culture has morphed over the years. #EP145

🇬🇧I think this is something beautiful! This colossal stone statue is The Leshan Giant Buddha and it is 71-metre tall. It was built during the Tang Dynasty in order to celebrate the Buddha Maitreya and it is carved out of a cliff face. It is the largest stone Buddha and also the tallest pre-modern statue in the world! 🏛🗿•

🇮🇹Credo che questo sia qualcosa di meraviglioso! Questa colossale statua di pietra è Il Buddha gigante di Leshan ed è alta 71 metri. È stata costruita durante nel periodo della dinastia Tang per celebrare il Buddha Maitreya ed è scavata nella roccia di una scogliera. È la più grande statua di pietra di Buddha così come la più alta scultura pre-moderna al mondo!🏛🗿
