That Day I Learnt

Lessons I learned that day

Lessons I learned that day

I attended a workshop recently and that day I learned to see this a different way. For example, We all have heard Waka Waka By Shakira and many of has sung along with it. Have we ever noticed that the lyrics are motivational? At least I had not till that day.

See this:
“You’re a good soldier
Choosing your battles
Pick yourself up
And dust yourself off
And back in the saddle

You’re on the front line
Everyone’s watching
You know it’s serious
We’re getting closer
This isn’t over

The pressure is on
You feel it
But you’ve got it all
Believe it

When you fall get up
Oh oh…
And if you fall get up
Oh oh…

Tsamina mina
Zangalewa
Cuz this is Africa

Tsamina mina eh eh
Waka Waka eh eh

Tsamina mina zangalewa
Anawa aa
This time for Africa

Listen to your god
This is our motto
Your time to shine
Don’t wait in line
Y vamos por Todo

People are raising
Their Expectations
Go on and feed them
This is your moment
No hesitations

Today’s your day
I feel it
You paved the way
Believe it

If you get down
Get up Oh oh…
When you get down
Get up eh eh…

Tsamina mina zangalewa
Anawa aa
This time for Africa

Tsamina mina eh eh
Waka Waka eh eh

Tsamina mina zangalewa
Anawa aa

Tsamina mina eh eh
Waka Waka eh eh
Tsamina mina zangalewa
This time for Africa”

If we start from the first paragraph,
You’re a good soldier. Choosing your battles. Pick yourself up. And dust yourself off. And back in the saddle”
I learned I am good, I am better than others and that is why I am here. I am choosing my own battles and I have to pick myself up when I fail. I have to go on.

“You’re on the front line. Everyone’s watching. You know it’s serious. We’re getting closer. This isn’t over. The pressure is on. You feel it. But you’ve got it all. Believe it” 
I chose my battles and so I am in the front line. People will be watching, scrutinizing my every move. I am going to be in pressure. I have to believe in myself.

“People are raising. Their Expectations. Go on and feed them. This is your moment. No hesitations”
By the time I will start succeeding, I would be knowing more people and there will be more expectations and reliance. There is where I have to show my commitment. I have to go and feed their expectations. They expect because they believe I can do it.

That day I learned that I am never going to get away from pressure and expectations. It would be better if I feed them and be committed.

    You are right about pressure, and the approach is good. “Feed them and be committed”
