You Are a Champion to Me

It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes short again and again, who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause, who at best knows achievement and who at the worst if he fails at least fails while daring greatly so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.

Theodore Roosevelt
In any competition, there's always a winner and a loser.

It's never nice being the one who lost.

Everyone who goes for a competition wants to win. In fact in our daily life, everyone hopes to be a winner.

However, unexpected twist of events occur in our life all the time.

I saw ur effort, i saw ur sacrifices, i saw the tears and sweat u shed.

I know how much this competition means to you, but rmb the competition is not the only way for you to prove urself.

Ppl say u cant sense feelings fr sms, but even frm 300km apart, yes, i can fl ur disappointment and sadness.

My heart too is enveloped by the same feeling of inexplicable shock and pity and sadness that u felt.

You had NOT fail, u jz made mistakes. But we all do make mistakes, and the important thing of it all is to learn fr ur mistakes and grow stronger fr ur mistakes.

To me, u r already a champion, for all the countless efforts u put into training and bringing out the best of urself, motivating ur teammates along all the time, encouraging ur sch team and regardless of holidays and exams, giving all the time u had.

So, don't blame urself anymore. You had been a really good leader. And congratulations on getting BEST THEORY.

Continue striving hard. I will be here to support you always. ^.^

There is no loser,there is a learner instead.
