Daily Mindset

“If a shooter missed the target, it’s not the target’s fault.”


How ridiculous would it look for a shooter to scream at the target, as if it should have magically moved to where they shot? Pretty ridiculous. But, it happens.

And if you’re reading this, I’d hedge a bet that you and I both have been guilty of this before. Blaming something external.

Certainly, blaming the target gets that shooter no where. Their next shot may be just as wild as the one before. But if the shooter took a step back, took windage into consideration, adjusted their sights, and took their next shot… would they have a better chance?

The takeaway is that it can be human nature to feel the heat of frustration in the moment. And to even have the inclination to blame something external to the real reason why. In that moment, we can recall such an example. We’ll take responsibility, realign our sights, and take our next shot. That first miss will be the reason why we’ll be closer this time.
