Winners never quit

It was in the late 2005, a legend in indian cricket was sacked from cricket captain post. He was forgotten completely. In the entire 2006 he was not allowed to play even a single international match. Everyone started to joke and treated him as a joker. The hero bounced back in a great fashion. A patient guy who has a great focus. Once decided no one can stop his going. He has the greatest will power, self-confidence and great amazing determination. Even lot criticized about his age and told that he don't have proper fitness, but he proved everybody whoever criticized as wrong, he made his talking through his batting. He is the PRINCE of indian cricket Mr.Sourav Ganguly.



When he can bounce back at his age fighting all the critics,comments, jokes why can't we bounce back from our failures.

A little girl - the 20th of 22 children, was born prematurely and her survival was doubtful. When she was 4 years old, she contracted double pneumonia and scarlet fever, which left her with a paralyzed left leg. At age 9, she removed the metal leg brace she had been dependent on and began to walk without it.By 13 she had developed a rhythmic walk, which doctors said was a miracle. That same year she decided to become a runner. She entered a race and came in last.For the next few years every race she entered, she came in last. Everyone told her to quit, but she kept on running.



One day she actually won a race, and then another. From then on she won every race she entered. Eventually this little girl - Wilma Rudolph, went on to win three Olympic gold medals. Surely from wilma's effort everyone should make a point not to quit whenever your are down rather fight back and make the failures quit from you.

He was MBA Marketing graduate from Loyola college. Started his career in TV Ads. Initially he acted in Chakra Gold Tea , Tantex Ads etc.That was in early 90s.He got an opportunity to act in telugu movie. He didn't get a break. But he didn't quit. He tried and got a chance to act in tamil movie. From 1990 he was trying to get a break and trying to establish his name in indian cinema. He became tired and sick but he didn't quit. Coming from a non-filmi background, he didn't had any godfather to boost him up. Even all his friends advised him to go back to his business. By his extreme trying and determination , it was in 1999 his movie 'sethu' released. He is Vikram a patient and cool headed person with lot of soft skills with him.



For the first 10 days there was no audience turn-over. But he was sure his hard-work will pay the price. After couple of weeks there was huge audience turn-around. Even he got the best hero award for his performance and the same movie was remade in telugu,kannanda and hindi later. Now he is one of the top paid actors in south india. All his wait has been made worthy.

Don't quit when you are 10 metres away from your victory.

Always don't wait for opportunities, create your own opportunities. Start working on your dreams implementation. Just keep working on your dreams and don't lose hope if things do not come along your way, just keep trying with determination,patience and make your wait worthy & become a winner by never quitting :)
