6 Things About Winning At Life That No One But Only A Real Hero Can Tell You

How do you feel when you fall, when you miss a goal, when you take too long to complete a lap, or when you’re pinned down by your competitor?

Disgruntled? Determined? or maybe at a disadvantage?

Either way, we find a way to channel our failure, our shortcomings, but do we really do a very good job of it? Maybe not. We often end up blaming the universe, situations or others for our own failure. But think about it, who really knows how to deal with it?

Our paralympic athletes know everything about hard work, pain and failure. And it’s a lesson we should all take home.

They’ve risen from a place we haven’t imagined, they’ve risen from personal loss. A loss that made them feel empty and incomplete. But they knew this isn’t rock bottom, this is the start of another journey, the start of something painfully beautiful. They made their weakness, their strength. They rewired their system to cope for what they didn’t have, in spirit and in ability. They worked twice as hard and achieved twice as much. As of this year, India has 4 Gold, 4 Silver and 4 Bronze medals at Paralympics and it’s all because of their dedication and ‘never say die’ spirit.

And if you seek inspiration to rise from rock bottom and reach your zenith, take these lessons with you, from two para-athletes who shun like bright stars during the Paralympics: Deepa Mallik and Devendra Jhajharia.

A champion is someone who gets up, even when he can’t.
