Kutty Story | SPORTS – The Right direction for Child to Invest

Curator: Kovai Kirupakar

One friend asked the other, “Why do you pay so much money for your son to do all his sports”?

Well, I have a confession to make; I do not pay my son to do sports. Personally, it does not matter so long as he learns the lessons sports teaches!

So, if I am not paying for sports what am I paying for?

– My son realizes that there are moments in life that becomes so tired he wants to quit but does not.

– My son feels that there is a time when he comes home from school and is “too tired” to go to his practice but he goes anyway.

– My son to learn responsibility, ownership, discipline, focus, and dedication.

– My son is to learn to take care of his body, mind, belongings, and equipment.

– My son to learn to work with others and to be a good teammate, gracious in defeat, and humble in success.

– My son learns to deal with disappointment when he does not get that placing or title he’d hoped for, but still, he goes back week after week giving it his best shot.

– My son to learn to make and accomplish goals.

– My son to respect, not only himself but also other athletes, officials, and coaches.

– My son learns that it takes hours and hours, years and years of hard work and practice to create a champion and that success does not happen overnight nor its luck and magic.

– My son to be proud of small achievements, and work towards long-term goals.

– My son for this opportunity that he has and will have to make life-long friendships, create lifelong memories, to be as proud of his achievements as I am.

– My son can be out on the field or in the gym instead of in front of a screen.

– My son withstand, overcome, and endure pain, loss, insults, failure, and risk, yet come back with a smile.

“I could go on but, to be short, I don’t pay for sports; I pay for the opportunities that sports provide” he added.

At the end of the day, what your child carries in the voyage of life is a development in attributes that will serve them well throughout their lives and give them the opportunity to bless themselves and the lives of others.

By-and-Large we shall think of it as a great investment for every child’s future!

The Other Side Story

Praveen, the owner of a coffee shop had been busy all day. Being a weekend, his shop was very crowded and the customers seemed unending.

He had been on his toes since morning. Towards the evening he felt a splitting headache surfacing.

As the clock ticked away, his headache worsened.

Unable to bear it, he stepped out of the shop leaving his staff to look after the sales.

He walked across the street to the Drug store to buy himself a painkiller to relieve his headache.

He swallowed the pill and felt relieved. He knew that in a few minutes he would feel better.

As he strolled out of the shop, he casually asked the salesgirl, “Where is Mr. Dinesh, the Pharmacists? He’s not at the cash counter today!”

The girl replied, “Sir, Mr. Dinesh had a splitting headache and said he was going across to your coffee shop. He said a cup of hot coffee would relieve him of his headache.”

The man’s mouth went dry and he mumbled, “Oh! I see.”

This is a typical case of looking outside ourselves for something that we have within us.

How strange, but true!

The Pharmacists relieves his headache by drinking coffee and the coffee shop owner finds relief in a pain relieving pill!

Similarly, many of us travel across the lengths and breadths of the universe and also visit several places to find peace.

PEACE & PROBLEM are really just a state of mind.

Eventually, we come to realize that real peace is within our own hearts and Problem we face is just a state of position at times.

Proverb Week – Day 3

“A journey of thousand miles begins with a single step.”

It may seem to be a Herculean task, but it starts with a small step. This emphasis the importance on the focus towards your goal and start working, rather than not trying.

Example: I’m feeling defeated by the possibility of completing 30 pages of article writing work by next week but, I suppose if I start writing a minimum of 3 pages daily, I shall finish the same in 10 days.
