“If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do ,you have to keep moving forward”-Martin Luther king Jr. In order to survive in a game we need to be on our toes always and so is the case with life. The best way one can learn the lessons of life or tricks to make life easier and fun is through sports. In a game there is only one winner and that person is the mightiest. In life the winner is god. If we fight with life we are going to loose but if we play a game with a fighting spirit then definitely god will loose to you and you will be a wiser individual.
One can win an Olympic medal or a team can win a world cup only with hard work and dedication. Along with hard work and dedication there is a mix of ingredients like unity, honesty, will power, etc. which makes the individual or the team attain glory. Seeking an analogy with life we can say a person who is the most successful in life is a person who has a mix of all the qualities needed by a sportsperson. If you want to be a player you need to practice daily, maintain fitness, proper diet and the most important thing is focus. In life if you want to win, if you want to be successful, you need to focus on the right things, practice the right habits and maintain the proper attitude. All matches cannot be converted to wins. There would be debacles, a lot of failures definitely but guys remember the famous saying “failures are the stepping stones to success”. We learn from our mistakes and practice harder to ensure we don’t repeat the same in next matches. People, here lies the trick to life. We will have a lot of failures in life, a lot of places where we get tired of trying but are unable to move forward, times when everything back fires, looks like you have a dead end but the match has to end right? Similarly all this will end. It’s not going to last a lifetime. All you have to do is not loose your will power. Believe in yourself, practice harder, capitalize your strengths and the funda of beating the opposition in life is make your weakness your strengths and then play the game of life with a smile. We are here for a short period. Let’s make the maximum of it.
“Don’t stop when you are tired. Stop when you are Done!”
