Waking Up

It’s a new morning.

What’s changed?

This: last night, we saw self-belief in action.

Even if it was to be seen in a game of cricket. It was still self-belief. A rare commodity.

MS Dhoni walked in to bat, promoting himself up the order. Very brave. If this would back-fire, he’d never hear the end of it.

The singular thing that shone out in his batting was self-belief. He’d been out of form. His style was unique at best. Nothing copy-book. Just raw belief that he could do it. That he could win it for his country.

He just had one thing in mind: to dominate the bowling and not get dominated by it. And he translated that belief into a match and tournament winning innings of a life-time.

What one takes away from this glimpse of brilliance is that one can win if the desire is strong enough.

One is compelled to carry forward such a feat and translate it into one’s own professional pursuits.

Dhoni won a mind-game yesterday.

Whatever one’s profession is, at first it’s a mind-game.

The battle is won in the mind first. Then it is translated into the physical deed.

On that note, congratulations to the nation, and WELL DONE team India!
