Inspired by the recent frenzy and excitement about the IPL Cricket Finals, I’m dedicating my latest post to all you Cricket-lovers out there! Though personally, I am no Cricket fan myself, I think there is good to learn from everything and today’s post is just about this game that drives a lot of you great people (including my hubby!)CRAZY and wild with excitement! 🙂 Hope you enjoy it!
“Life is a game of cricket, to be enjoyed with enthusiasm and zest and played in a friendly atmosphere without condemning or blaming the external factors. And even if one scores the occasional ‘duck’; no need to get too depressed for we all win some, lose some. There will be another opportunity to stage a comeback. Until the day one finally retires & can look back with a feeling of satisfaction that we gave our best always and ended with a good batting average.”-Sultan H Fazelbhoy
I truly admire the words of wisdom in the above quote.
The lesson I could draw out was: It truly doesn’t matter whether or not we WIN every game in LIFE. What is more important is to continue playing and learn from mistakes and get better each time. Just like every time a match is played, only one team wins .Similarly in life, we may lose some matches, however the important thing is NOT to STOP playing .As long as we continue to consistently improve each time we play, WE are definitely WINNERS and one day we can look back with a feeling of satisfaction that we have always played our best game and that ensured us a Good Batting average in the Game Of LIFE!
NUGGET OF LIFE: CONTINUE CONSISTENTLY PLAYING THE GAME.YOU ARE ALREADY A WINNER IF YOU ARE DOING YOUR BEST!
