The Dance of Death
What it takes to be a Winner
Nikhilesh Chand XI-C
Winning. We all talk about how we must win in all possible aspects of life. To be the very best at what we do. It would seem that in today's competitive world we must always reach for the sky…. excel!!
|characters are what, in my belief, indispensable for a "winner".
a) One must have the sensitivity to realize his\her own limitations and mistakes.
b) The urgency must be there to change and adapt so that one can better one's self. One must allow for sacrifices.
c) One must always think in terms of the future and how today's events can effect tomorrow. A winner must realize the need for rapid self-development.
d) It is of utmost priority to be optimistic at all times. One should never give up hope. Always aim for your goal.
Intense commitment and determination will always lead to success.
e) One must be fair and truthful not necessarily with others (that would encompass a larger field), but with yourself.
f) One must be strong- both physically and mentally.
To fear nothing else, but fear itself! (Alias Martin Luther King)
g) And, one of my greatest beliefs…. To be consistent in everything one does. Consistency always leads to victory.
A person can never be perfect, but the one who constantly strives is the real winner.
