🏀 It’s another impromptu basketball session this evening and today’s session is near to competitive level. It’s been a long time since I’ve felt this exhausted after a few serious games. However, it’s also a day where I feel I can improve drastically. The stronger my competitors or opponents, the more I will grow!
You see, when someone is better than you, stronger than you or faster than you in any aspect, it’s a natural driving force for yourself to do better and to break through your limits.
It’s only the people that are better than us, makes us grow. Stepping out of the comfort zone is indeed difficult. The more you do it, the more you will get used to it. Being comfortable at the level will never level you up, but in fact it will bring you one level down while the rest keeps going up.
A good basketball game nurtures your mindset, a good work ethic nurtures your attitude and a good relationship nurtures your maturity. When challenged, always accept the challenge and do your best. It’s not about winning or losing but it’s about working so hard and giving your best shot.
When you give your best, you have already won. Let’s enjoy the the remaining week and let’s dive deep into Personal Development! Tomorrow is Hari Raya Haji and Selamat Hari Raya Haji in advance to all of my muslim friends!
Have a good rest everyone and give a pat on your own shoulder for going through this tough and challenging week! I’ll see everyone in my next post!
The stronger your competition is, the faster you will grow.Perry Soh
