1938. Karoly Takacs was writhing in pain. The 1936 world class pistol shooter had just shot his right hand. His right hand by which he would hold his pistol.
The pain of the extinguished hopes was more than the physical pain. Everyone looking at him said “A great career which could have been has just ended” Or did it?
By 1939 i.e. in a year’s time, he won the National Shooting Championship. Olympics was cancelled in 1940 and 1944 due to World War 2. Finally in 1948 Olympics, after waiting for nine years, he wold the Gold medal and also in the next Helsinki Olympics in 1952.
He won all these championships by his LEFT Hand.
Back in 1938, He could have easily moaned in grief and led a victim’s life which everyone would have shown sympathy to. Instead he rose above his physical and mental challenges and achieved the impossible.
You may say “I am not an Olympic Athlete. How is this relevant to me?”
Let me ask you: “Do You want today to be better than yesterday?” If yes, then this is for you.
Because if you focus on the very core aspects of your life then your today is going to be better than yesterday.
What are these core elements?
