The game of football drives everyone crazy irrespective of one’s age. The game is filled with passion, hard work and complete dedication of the players; who want to perform and win for their respective teams.
Vince Lombardi very beautifully said, “Football is like life – it requires perseverance, self-denial, hard work, sacrifice, dedication and respect for authority”.
If we look at the game of football from a different point of view, it teaches us many things in life. Confused with the comparison? Let’s have a look at it from my point of view and I am sure you will fall in love with FOOTBALL once again.
Now let’s for some time visualize ourselves as a football. We tackle many situations in life or in other words, life keeps testing us by creating different circumstances and thus we keep passing (being kicked) from one role to another, doing our complete justice to it.
A person’s positive attitude towards life, the thoughts one possesses, good deeds, dedication, hard work, enthusiasm, honesty and passion helps to reach our Dreams (goals) in life. It’s very intelligently quoted by Felicity Luckey that “When You achieve your football goals, you never know what football dream you inspire in the life of another.”
Life would be comfortable and easy going if there would be no obstacles; but a few situations rather kick us in another direction thus, restricting us from attaining our dreams (goals). The negative Thoughts, false assumptions &a our fear block our way to achieve good in life. As life is all about getting going one must not mind the kicks which stop us but instead, take them as lessons to move forward to achieve aims (Goal).
Our dreams, objectives in life, achievements, aims and targets set are our goals. Thus, life is full of aims, full of vigour, enthusiasm and gives us a direction to move ahead in life. “In life, as in football, you won’t go far unless you know where the goalposts are.” -Arnold H. Glasow
In the game of life it is our instincts and consciousness which keeps checking us that we do everything in a right manner. They act as a firewall and restrict us from taking the wrong track. We can only score a goal if our inner conscious guides us the destination.
“Believe you can achieve your football goals and you are half way there”- Anonymous, This quote is very apt as our own belief is our mentor. This belief is instilled in us by our teachers, our parents, our friends and our well-wishers and it gives us an extra boost to perform our tasks well.
Sometimes, Life gives us a few more chances to prove ourselves and fulfill goals, so utilizing it efficiently is a responsible task.
When tired in the path of struggle and about to lose focus, it’s a reminder call that tells us to work harder for another half.
Everything in the world is set in its limits, if we cross it we need to pay for it.
On a final note, every little thing around us teaches many values of life; it is up to our own point of view of analyzing and applying the same in our day to day activities. So, set your goals, frame a game plan and work out to reach to it…and enjoy Football life!
“The game of life is a lot like football. You have to tackle problems, block your fears and score your points when you get the opportunity” – Lewis Grizzard
