Johanne Bouchard, "The Leadership Whisperer" and founder of the BonneFire Community, sits down for an intimate chat with former Major League pitcher Matt Morris.
Enjoy Matt and Johanne's conversation about the journey of being true to your heart and not just the nuts and bolts of the game.
Says Matt: "Baseball is a crazy sport that helps you relate to the journey of life, as it is a sport of failure. A player who gets three hits out of 10 at bat is a hall of fame player while having failed seven out of 10 times! The sport helps you deal with losing and failure. It is easy to move on when you win, but it is hard to reflect when you are doing bad. You learn a ton when you make mistakes, and you give up a hit, or make a bad decision in life…that is when you start to internalize what happened and why. The metaphor of baseball and life has always been important to me."
Matt always knew that baseball was not the "end all be all "for him. There is still more for him to do that he thinks is bigger to meaningfully impact the world.
