Astros’ Jose Altuve Attributes Success to God

The best success is to live your life the way God wants you to.

The 2017 World Series is the first for Houston Astros’ Second Baseman, Jose Altuve.  The 5’6’ Venezuelan professional athlete was once told he would NEVER make it to the major leagues. Proving to not be limited by words of his critics, Altuve is now playing in front of millions.

Twenty-seven-year-old Altuve told The Houston Chronicle, “To achieve success (it) wasn’t to get into the major leagues, or have the best season in the world. The best success is to live your life the way God wants you to,” he stated, “…if you can be good with God, then, I think you will have success in your life.”

We need to not just ask God, but thank Him for everything.

“We need to not just ask God, but thank Him for everything from our health and our family. Ask Him to bless our homes and to always be present in our daily lives.  And to keep us safe is most important,” Altuve continued.

Jose gives credit to his family, not only for believing in him but for giving him the greatest gift — his faith in God. “I grew up in a family that always believed in God. And I feel like every morning when you wake up you have to thank Him just for another day. I do it every day,” he told CBN Sports.

Altuve stated that the Astros understand what the city of Houston has gone through as a result of Hurricane Harvey’s destruction.

“And talking about Houston, it’s been a city that’s been going through a lot of things this year. And now, we are in the World Series. We want to win this World Series for them because they deserve it, and because they’ve been true fans all year long,” he said.

“We’re more than a team; We have a family. We all get along great, and that’s very important.”

Thank you, Jose Altuve, for letting your light shine, and Congrats to you and the Houston Astros for making it to the 2017 World Series! Go Stros!!
