If you play a sport, you know that in the world of sports, there’s one thing that never changes. It doesn’t matter if you’re a professional or just playing for fun, you always want to win – and when it happens, we feel like anything is possible!
You might have felt this even if you had to fight and stand up against your opponents in a competition or sustain against an obstacle (you know, basically life).
But what about those moments where things don’t go our way, when you try so hard but still things don’t seem to work out in your favor?
We’ve all been there. It’s that feeling of defeat and the loss. It’s the feeling when you’ve been fighting for hours and you just know that it’s not going to happen. However, we must remember that it’s all a part of the experience.
But what do we do when you feel that way?
The answer is simple: We keep fighting.
There’s only one reason we continue fighting. Because we haven’t lost yet!
Honestly these two sentences have made me realise why you need to keep on fighting even when you’re on the brink of giving up. I used to think that you don’t give up because you had a destination to reach which you haven’t reached yet. As true as it is, I never realised that if you give up you drop your fight in the middle of the process, when you can still win. The realisation that the game is not over yet and there is still scope to win seems a little more motivating to me than the fact that you need to fight because you’ve got a long fight ahead of you. The second one feels like a burden when you are already tired because of fighting.
It’s not over until we’ve lost; so don’t quit now when things seem too hard because who knows what the future may bring? It could take days or weeks but one day your luck will change for the better and you’ll be on the other side of that tunnel, with a smile across your face.
You haven’t lost yet! And don’t let anyone tell otherwise because it’s not over until you say so – rather until you believe so.”
From sportsmanship, in the world of opponents and even life itself there’s always that singular goal – winning through all moments when things don’t go our way.
We all have moments when it feels like everything is falling apart; but what if, at the end of our lives, we realize that this was actually the moment where things began to turn around for us? What if this time is just a speed bump on the way to an amazing life? What if it is the darkest hour just before the dawn? We can only find out by continuing to fight and never giving up hope.
The best way to fight is with everything you have, and the bravest thing a person can do in that moment of crisis when things seem like they might never get better – is keep going anyway.”
I’d like to appreciate two characters – Kageyama Tobio and Hinata Shoyo – from a sports show called Haikyuu for making me realise this through their persistence in volleyball 😊
And while we’re at the topic of being persistent and consistent, I am delighted to tell you that I have been consistent in uploading these blog posts every single Sunday for a whole year now!!! There have been some instances where I didn’t feel like writing at all. But clearly I’ve made it through. I am glad to know that this blog was not a 2 week obsession that would fizz out on the 15th day. Sure, I feel like I could do better and reach more people than I am. So i’ll keep fighting because i haven’t lost yet 🙂
If you read in the beginning, have stuck through since the start, joined me sometime in the middle or have started reading my blogs recently, I want to thank you from the depths of my heart. Taking out the time to read what I write means a lot.
And honestly, I’d like to thank myself too for doing this. If I never promised myself to write every week, I could have never ended up with 53 pieces of writing.
I end my happy rant there *catches a breath*
Congratulations.. You are a year old now ❤️
