In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
I know it's already Tuesday, but it's never too late to call it a 'kickstart'. Here, I would like to share a letter written by an american football head coach of Uni Texas 'Longhorns' to his player in 1960s. Quite inspiring. *Sniff
You should all ask yourself what do you feel when you are defeated. Are you blaming others, feeling depressed, or are you feel with passion, ready to take challenge again.
All those of you who has played on the field will have tasted defeat, there's no player who has not lost before,
Here comes my favourite part;
However, the best players, as a tribute to all their efforts, will give everything they've got to stand up again.
The ordinary players will take them a while to get back on their feet,
while the losers will remain flat on the field.
Do not be ashamed about being defeated.
To be defeated and not to stand up is what you should be ashamed of.
|Do not, then, either lose heart or grieve: for you shall surely gain the upper hand if you are true men of faith [3:139]|
