EUPHORIA!!!! There’s a sense of serenity around YOU. It’s that feeling that You have returned…You have made a comeback! Many a time there is that numbing feeling that something great is about to erupt, a phase where one who was written off by all and sundry is about to return with redemption! How many times have you had that feeling? No one thinks the world of you anymore, but then somehow the higher powers give you that chance, the chance to return to a path on glory, that moment when it seems life is back to the way it should be and you belong to the place you were destined to eventually reach.
Sport is often a great ambassador and personifying tribute of comeback stories. We hear of sports persons being written off once they are no longer in their prime or injury cuts their career short, BUT their sheer determination and a believing is what takes them through to the finishing line of sporting comebacks.
There are the odd moments when I have thought about how people can write you off in life in general so easily. Sometimes those people are the very ones you felt had a belonging in your life, a sense that they believed in you through thick and thin. But sometimes we need such reminders that there are those who are not really there to see you go to greater heights. Sometimes we need the moments where we are written off, so that we can script a greater story by making a great comeback.
There’s something about comeback stories that have a great feeling than compared to the feeling when you first achieve something in greatness. Maybe it’s that sense of satisfaction of all the pain one would go through during the process of making a comeback that makes it all the more sweeter. When we first achieve something in greatness, we often don’t savor it as much because we look to strive for something better, knowing that if we could achieve the first level, then there is something even greater to achieve.
There have been times when I had a sense of being written off…maybe not so much as being completely being phased out of people’s lives, but to the extent the respect and recognition once earned seemed to have been lost. I was no longer a favorite or one of those that was belonging. But that feeling of making a comeback always drove me on, knowing someday that sweet feeling would make the pain go away in a whisker. There is also a great danger in writing someone off too easily. Sometimes we don’t realize how such a situation elevates a person’s potential. It’s a great driver and motivator, and sometimes such elevation brings them to a place where they are better off than before.
If you feel people doubt your ability and want to write you off, then take a few moments to reflect on all those great comeback stories. Imagine and feel in your mind the moment where you achieve the euphoria, that feeling that the best is yet to come. Strive to become one of those people who belong to that class…the class of the COMEBACK KINGS!!
This is Funjabi Guy wishing you a great weekend and beyond! Be safe. Till next Friday.
