Another Monday is here with us. Hope you enjoyed your weekend? And it was relaxing as well. After all our spiritual activities to seek God’s blessings on Friday, Saturday & Sunday, it’s time to work to see GOD’S BLESSINGS in our lives.
#BGIM- TIME TO IMPROVE
Improvement is needed by everybody. All of us need to improve in life. But the sad thing is our perception about improvement.
The word IMPROVEMENT does not mean one is bad but that he can do BETTER. And everyone can surely better what he is doing now. Let me share one notable story of improvement with us.
Lionel Messi is arguably one of the best footballers of all-time. But somewhere in 2011 or 2012, at the time when he was the REIGNING World Best, he started taking free-kicks for his club side, Barcelona. Personally, I was glad because I wondered why a player with good curling ability and placement technique never took freekicks.
It was not as though Messi needed that free-kick taking ability to establish him as the AUTHENTIC Best Player but I feel he challenged himself to taking free-kicks. And I can say without any iota of doubt that Lionel Messi has perfected that skill so much that he plays it better than the THEN ALREADY-KNOWN Free-Kick taking Cristiano Ronaldo of Real Madrid. (Please I don’t want any Messi versus Ronaldo argument emanating from this article).
Messi has since then saved his team on several occasions or helped his Barcelona team win matches because of this added skill of free-kicking taking to the extent that he even has a free-kick amongst his 5 World Cup goals for Argentina.
If such a super professional like Messi was willing to improve himself, how much more you and I? We have to improve in every aspect of our lives: be it in our communication skills, interpersonal relationships, analytical ability, punctuality, skills sets, knowledge, religious life etc.
An indigenous African proverb says if water stays at a place for long (i.e stagnates), it smells. I believe you and I need to improve be it going back to school, taking refresher courses, attending seminars, learning a new skill amongst others. The word is IMPROVE.
