Weekly Meeting: Navy SEAL
Posted By Josh Nelson
450 W Main St ste b1
Jason Kuhn was a closer for a top 25 Division I baseball program with dreams of reaching the major leagues, but he was suddenly afflicted with what is called “the yips” and could not even play catch.
From his blog, www.baseballandbusiness.com:
“I woke up in my apartment foggy from a binge and knew something had to change. I recognized that victimhood was producing more victimhood. I was going nowhere fast. I decided I would not allow failure in baseball to define the rest of my life. I stopped viewing the failure as having taken my purpose and started viewing it as having an intrinsic purpose for me to be forged into a stronger person and fulfill a greater calling. The problem was, I had no clue what to do next.
“That fall was September 11, 2001. I watched two airplanes kill 3,000 people on live television in my dorm room. Through much prayer and reflection, I felt God spoke to me. I had believed since I was four years old, that I would be a Major League Baseball player. Now, for the first time I pivoted and accepted that playing professional baseball would not be my future. I began a new adventure to become a Navy SEAL.”
There is a ton more to his story; you won’t want to miss this meeting.
