The Cleveland Indians are trying to join the Cleveland Cavaliers as the 2016 World Champions of their sport. And the Chicago Cubs are trying to win the World Series for the first time in 107 years. One of these teams is going to break the curse of losing and not winning and coming up short and running on empty. But that’s all about to change, but for only one team. And that one team could be the upstart, underdog and overachieving Cleveland Indians.
But is it possible? Is it doable? Is it believable that Cleveland will upset the heavily favored Chicago Cubs? These are the questions that the sports world is asking about as the 110th Fall Classic gets underway. And these are the very same questions that you and I should ask yourselves about our lives and our legacy.
So here are the answers to the questions:
One: Is it possible? Yes it’s possible. It’s possible because all things are possible to those who believe.
Two: Is it doable? Yes, it’s doable, because if you believe, it’s possible, any bridge is crossable.
Three: Is it believable? Yes, it’s believable, because if it’s possible, it’s doable. It sounds like circular reasoning, because it is. Possibilities are doable, and what’s doable is believable. It’s within the realm of possibilities to believe and then strive to achieve.
So . . . Cleveland stands in Chicago’s way, and the Cubs are standing in the Indians way of a World Championship.
May the best team win.
