At Times, Life Is Like Basketball/ Motivation Monday #6


On The Court

On the court, a basketball player is judged by his actions. His performance depends on what he does on the court. It depends on points, assists, rebounds, blocks, steals, turnovers, defense, offense, communication, and many more factors. All these things come together and he will either have a bad game or a good game.


Everybody Fails

It might happen that you have a bad shooting game. You might miss 10 shots in a game. Nothing seems to be falling in the hole. The important thing is, what will you do the next time you have the opportunity to score? Will you shoot the ball, or will you pass up the opportunity of  success?


One Step Closer To Success

Today, I am here to tell you, you should not let your past affect your present.  Every miss brings you closer to a make. Treat every shot as an opportunity to be successful. If you do not shoot at all, you will never know if you would have made it. Same goes for all other things on the court. You can throw 10 turnovers in a row but the game will go on and the 11th time you go by your defender and all of a sudden you changed the game. You only have to forget the past and value the moment. After all, a bad mistake does not make you a bad player.


Just Try Again

All this also applies to life. You can have bad months, bad weeks, bad days, bad hours, whatever. However, just like the game goes on after a missed shot, life goes on after failing a job interview, arguing with your spouse, or failing a test. Again, the question is, what will you do the next time you have a job interview, a conversation with your spouse, or a test. Do not let the past affect your present. You have the opportunity to improve your life, enjoy the moment, and put a smile on the face of the people around you.

Therefore, just try to make the most out of it. Every miss brings you closer to a make and it only takes one chance to turn the situation around and get closer to all your goals. Take every opportunity and cherish it. If you do not try, you will never know if you would have made the shot.

Thank you for reading my kinda late post. I hope it is as motivating to you, as it is to me.
