Ever since the inception of life on earth, all organisms are competing with one other for resources. Competition is a law of nature; you can’t escape it. You can only understand it and try to beat it.

What Winners do (Cricket Theory)

1. Study the game — Cricket

Know exactly — what it takes to win

For example — Marks, Grades, Expected Output for your boss, etc.

2. Study the opponent — Bowlers

These are the people/things who will hinder your path.

For example — Illness, Family matters, Finances, etc.

3. Study the competitor — Other Batsmen

Learn from your competitors instead of fearing them

For example — Other aspirants, colleagues, People hitting on your crush.

4. Study the Judge — Umpire

Know who will and how will they decide the winner

For example — Exam pattern and duration, Biases of the Manager, etc.

5. Stay Focused

Even if you get the above 4 right, the results won’t show till you are focused upon winning.

Mistakes Losers do

· Hate the Competitors / Winners

This makes you passive and unable to progress in your own game

· Think there will be only 1 winner

Most competitions have more than 1 winner, try to be one of them if not the very best.

· Blame the system

They believe in a strange concept of equality in which everyone should have everything that is not possible because if everyone is best, no one is best.

· Give up

Life gives you so many chances one after the other. Holding onto one loss and giving up is the worst thing you can do to yourself.

· Choose wrong games

Once you have studied multiple games, opponents, competitors, and judges, you can choose the game that meets your requirements and have a better chance of winning.

For example, if you want to be an engineer and IIT JEE is out of your ability, you can try MAH-CET for Maharashtra engineering colleges.

All the Best for the Competition called Life
