Through the rubble of the struggle

- I have decided to share an image from which I will draw inpriration:

I know the slump will end sooner or later. I am dedicated to work hard at it. I really have to commit. I know is that I really have to go back to my foundation, my roots. The grassroot level of playing. Maybe even watch some old videos of myself running out. You know, like back to the times where there was no doubt.

I never thought of losing, but now that it' s happened, the only thing is to do it right. That's my obligation to all the people who believe in me. We all have to take defeats in life.
-Muhammad Ali

That was probably Ali's most humble moment. You cannot learn humility without actually losing. Then there is the other Ali: "If you even dream of beating me you'd better wake up and apologize."

As far as he thought, humble people never get very far in life. I personally think that you have to have certain amount of it to keep yourself in check, keep working at the different elements of the game. Same applies to any other sport or life in general.

But we all have our "Ali" moments, That's something we can reach for. I would be lying if I said I didn't want to be the greatest.

Jose Capablanca,(1888- 1942)one of the greatest chess champions of all time said,"I learned more from the games I lost than from the games I won." I think a great champion needs complete objectivity to examine their performance and themselves. To step "outside" himself or herself, and examine their life,and ask,"who they are," "what they are doing,"where they are going,"And what will make them happy. I don't think winning alone is the answer. Because if you win 20% of the time you will be unhappy 80% of the time. Happiness requires complete knowledge of yourself. Bob
