BPoM 1st entry for February'12

The 1st entry of BPOM February is by Ochi and tagged by Gary. It is a post titled,"Its not just about winning rather having passion."

This post is from way back in 2010, exactly about 2 years ago; re tagged by Gary and also a timely reminder to all champions in the making.

The post talks about regrets, then about the difference in wanting to win and doing the right thing. It moves on further to add that passion is still the ultimate multiplier effect. I sum it up in 1 sentence,"A champion has to have the want to win, and then go do the right things and fueled by passion, whatever the result may be, you may possess the regret of losing, but never will you possess the regret of not trying hard enough.

In Ochi own words plus a quote;

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. It’s not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."

Its okay to possess the regret of losing but never the regret of not trying hard enough.
