Earl Wilson - If You Think Nobody Cares If You're Alive

“If you think nobody cares if you’re alive, try missing a couple of car payments.”

– Earl Wilson

When it comes to self-improvement, there’s nothing more important the people you surround yourself with. It’s important to find people who celebrate your achievements with you, encourage you to do your best, and emotionally drive you to success. It’s also important to acknowledge the people who will only ever notice you when you fail, if for no reason than to keep your books balanced and your enemies proven wrong.

Earl Wilson, who came up as a Red Sox star pitcher in a racially tense period in history, was sure never to prove his enemies wrong and his books accounted for: when he was turned away at a racist restaurant, he was adamant on speaking to the press about this despite being advised against it.

As a result, he was traded to another team, where he pitched more home runs than the two players he was traded for.
