It is now the world cup season again!
We have waited 4 years for this occasion. Players playing hoping to bring back glory to their countries. There will be winners and losers, there will be joy and sorrows, there will be celebrations and tribulations, there will be singing and mourning. The biggest competition in the world have been set to the stage. Let the games begins!!
When we are facing life, it is pretty much like a football game. There are times we are controlling the ball well and sometimes your opponent is the one playing the ball around you. In a sense, sometimes we can plan our life well but sometime life takes us to an unexpected journey and we are trying to gain back control. In the end, we may give up looking at the state of our life at that particular moment.
However, always remember this, it is not the score during the game that counts, but the final score of the game that’s what matters. You may be feel you are in the brink of defeat, losing a job, a dream, failing an important exam, or relationships broken down. It is only a defeat if we take all this as the final scoreline but instead we should just look at it as half-time, there is still a big 2nd half to come.
Take it as an opportunity as the stage has been set for your greatest comeback.
There is no victory as sweet as a comeback. You can’t have your comeback when you are not behind. It is only when you are behind, you are able to make your comeback.
In World Cup 1954, a quarterfinal match between Switzerland and Austria. It was one of the greatest comeback game in history. During the game, Switzerland started off really strong, scoring 3 goals after 24 minutes. At this time, the Austrians may feel that there were no way back for them and to expect a heavy defeat at the end of the game. But NO, the Austrians saw this circumstances as a stage set for them for their greatest comeback. The Austrians unexpectedly fought back and hard until to the last whistle. The final score ended 7-5 with the victory for Austria. It was one of the greatest comeback ever witness in history on a global stage.
Therefore, when you are in the losing side, always know that it is not the end. The second half is coming for you to showcase your greatest comeback.
