Perspective Short: On Being Discouraged

In my email today I received the following
without attribution. I tried to find some
somewhere, without any luck.

If you know who said this, please let me
know so I can give proper credit.

On my way home one day, I stopped to
watch a Little League baseball game that
was being played in a park near my home.
As I sat down behind the bench on the
first base line, I asked one of the boys
what the score was 'We're behind 14 to
nothing,' he answered with a smile.

'Really,' I said. 'I have to say you
don't look very discouraged.'

'Discouraged?', the boy asked with a
puzzled look on his face...

'Why should we be discouraged?
We haven't been up to bat yet.'

Talk about perspective. :-)
