I was curious to know the thoughts behind the different body language of the players while following this ball!
I had a conversation with one of the players after the match. He mentioned to me that the response in the field is almost involuntary. There is no time to think or plan! Everything is almost at an impulsive level!
A sports psychologist, who accompanies teams for the university level competitions mentioned to me that his role is to help the the players to develop quick thinking skills in a heavily demanding situation. His main approach is to help players to think, 'all situations can be redeemed to an advantage'. He uses the 'losing stage' in a match to bring a new level of synergy between players.
Life is living is a series of compelling circumstances.
There is no winning or losing, but journey through experiences which are formative!
A friend, who recently moved on in life in her late seventy once remarked, 'life has told me that there is stillness beneath the turbulent surface of a sea'.
This is a purposeful view of life and the all circumstance we are called to go through!
