As the night drew near on 19th November 2023, a nation lost hope, a billion hearts were broken as the Indian cricket team lost yet another final and a chance of grabbing the coveted World Cup. They had a flawless run to the finals, winning every match convincingly, each player working their magic and yet one-off day on this fateful Sunday evening saw them lose the Cricket World Cup. In Toastmasters too, we see champion speakers winning club, area, division, and even district contests only to miss their mark on the final stage. It’s only in moments like this I remember a famous quote from Mickey Rooney who said “You always pass failure on your way to success”. It’s all about picking yourself up and marching on toward the next goal. A true champion is one who learns from his failure and ensures that he sets the bar higher to achieve greater success.
Let this be a learning for all of you so that you don’t get disheartened from a recent failure at a contest. I am sure in the coming months and years our wonderful cricket team will rise from the ashes like a phoenix only to conquer the next big victory.
