Sir, this bad luck never leaves me, some people are just unlucky? What happened? I sowed the seed, watered & fertilized it on time, but what I reap is some wild fruit? OK, so what's the problem? I was expecting a Mango? Did you examine the seed at the time of sowing? No, I was reasonably confident of the seed, I observed someone using the similar seed. Hence, you were so confident that you didn’t bother to cross check. But had I checked, that person would have assumed me as an amateur? It’s funny, you are not an expert, but you want to pretend as one, checking about a seed would have shown you a sincere person, remember, when we ask for help from someone it makes them responsible for us, but when they see us doing things wrong & still not asking, they take us as over-confident & arrogant, and everyone laughs at the failure of over-confident or arrogant people.
I already made-up my mind that their minds are made-up about not doing any business with me? But what made you made-up your mind? Well, I tried multiple times and I always get the same answer. But Is it the same question you ask every time? Mostly, sometimes it’s different but still linked to the usual question. Well, as you know the mind is the only thing which isn't stationary, it keeps wandering, it keeps shedding & picking new beliefs, when something worse comes, the bad becomes acceptable. People change, but we don’t bother to check if they have because we don’t allow our beliefs to change. But shouldn’t I save time by avoiding the unnecessary effort which is bound to fail? An honest effort is driven by the desire to succeed, not popular opinion. Popular opinions are popular because it involves less effort & a curtain to hide behind the failure of others. Don't underestimate the power of a mind that is made up, it can lead you towards trying again or skipping the process, well, skipping is a guarantee of a failure, trying still holds a chance to success.
Player: Sir, I don’t think we will win this match, every team member is convinced about the loss, the discussion is only about how badly. Coach: What do you think? The player: I think we only win if we decide to win, but I am just one member of the team, I can’t do anything on my own. At the end of the day it’s a team game. One person can make a difference, but the games are won by the teams. Coach: So, go there and make a difference. Player: How? Coach: It’s difficult but not impossible, you not only have to fight the opponents but also the fear of your team-mates, pretend it’s not difficult, stand firm, just over-look the refusals & denials, keep trying & make them believe it’s a cake-walk even if you are bruised, petrified or tired. Player: But what about the negative mind-set of some players. Coach: Don’t worry about them. They are like sheep, will anyways follow the majority. Keep trying, and most of them will feel ashamed of not doing anything, at least they will pretend to try, and that will give a positive signal to other players. Player: But I also feel de-motivated at times? Coach: Well, find your motivation in fighting the loss of hope, picture yourself in a post win situation, go for the win & take others along, even if some needs to be carried on your back.
Loss, at first it naturally brings the pain, the restlessness, the feeling of being trapped; we struggle, try harder, but our mind stops thinking about the reason of loss, it just signals our body to go for the win, we keep running, mentally exhausted, physically drained but still no win; we try harder & harder but keep doing similar work which earlier decorated us with success, eventually it becomes a ritual triggering the euphoria of a absolute surrender, we get used to the loss. Every day the ritual is followed, but we get used to the loss like we get used to the unanswered prayers, we stop thinking about the win, although bad feelings grip us from time to time but it passes very quickly, And just as losers justify their loss, we become addicted to a thought process which only blames other people and situation for our loss.
