The Sport We Call Life

 

A sport is that which has a competitive nature to it. Strategy, intelligence, resilience, are all required to win. Your body is a field, your emotions are players, your mind is the referee, and society is an external condition affecting the game.

High intensity competitions are constant among your emotions. Sometimes they fight with your mind, just as players fight with the referee. A couple of times, players damage the field or stadium they are competing in, just how your emotions damage you. When dark grey clouds express their thunderous clap, it is not possible to play outdoor sports. Similarly, people’s words have the ability to influence the arrival of the cloud of dejection. This cloud hovers over your emotions and ultimately, makes you feel a little under the weather. Storms always sink careless ships.

One of the most important things you should learn in life is the art of tenacity. It is the only thing that pushes people forward. A tenacious mind must also be a sound one, not ruthless. Pushing forward without a game plan won’t make you a needle mover. What is the use of flying high? You need to reach somewhere don’t you? Plan your life like you would if you were on a football field. Pass the ball to the right emotions, and let them score a goal. Set sail by blowing away your cloud of dejection with the winds of inspiration.

Don’t let your emotions fight with the referee. When they do, it’s time for a red card. Always stay resilient, and always remember, storms may come and storms may go, but you go on forever.
