Alan Armstrong once said, “”Champions do not become champions when they win the event, but in the hours, weeks, months and years they spend preparing for it. The victorious performance itself is merely the demonstration of their championship character.” This statement is as true today and will be tomorrow as it was when it was first said. This is because Champions are not created in a day; they identify their true skills and weakness and ensure that the “big waves of destiny” do not make them rusty or their dreams are not turned down by their own thought process and acts.
It is important to realize the fact that one, including you and me, needs to behave like a merely decent human being before thinking of being a hero in the eyes of one and all. This simply means that if an expected opportunity does not knock your door, you need to create a new door. Sounds thrilling but when are you really expecting yourself to work on it? Today or may be tomorrow or may be never? If you say “today”, “tomorrow”, or “never”, I would say that you will never be able to do it as it has to be “Now or never”. Remember, good and great things happened because they were not delayed and plans were developed with care and diligence so that they could find the “wings”, originally perceived by the dreamer.
So, if you are thinking that the world is not the right place for you or you see yourself hiding behind excuses, you know where you are destined for – not for success, at least.
If you want to make a name for yourself, think and act now! Do not delay things that could have been completed today itself. Well, it does not mean that everything needs to be done in a state of rush and without any thoughts but what it means is that if you are confident of doing something now then there could not be any second thoughts or delays in transforming that dream into a reality. We hope that the purpose of writing this motivational blog for you and everybody is not defeated or is it?
