“Be bold and mighty forces will come to your aid”. – Basil King
It’s the ‘make it happen moment’. Let me create the scenario.
The clock has only 60 seconds to the end of the game. The score is 2 points difference in favor of the other team. The final shot is in Justin’s hands, but this definitely has been a hard and long game. The other team was really good, they have been champions three years in a row. These are the semifinals. ‘If I score, the team will be heading to the finals for the first time. So, this is all on me‘. Justin thought.
He felt tired, exhausted, like if in his body there is nothing more than the single drop of energy that he could give. All kind of doubts came true his mind, he was not sure if he could make it.
Before he decided to play that last shot, he looks sideways and sees his coach. The look in his eyes reminds him of a conversation he had with the team earlier in the locker room. He encourages all by saying these words…
There will be moments in life that you will feel that you have given all, that you have put everything on the table, but be really honest with yourself, can you really say that you gave it all? Are you totally committed? Are you totally focused?
Analyze this situation, and tell me who gives more? The person that has 50% to give and gives his 50% or the person that has 100% and only gives half…
Go out there and give it all, play all of it!
Justin is now ready, he has his vision clear and totally focus on his goal. He took a deep breath and throw his shot….
This is a fictional story.
It depends on the way you decide to act in front of any situation. You need to continue motivated, you need to move forward and don’t lose your enthusiasm even though you are not feeling totally positive about it.
Play with heart, with intensity, with everything you got. Dump any excuses, any ‘but’ that does pass through your mind. Find the way to make it happen. Believe in your vision.
Play Full Out.
