National Sports Day Celebration
On the occasion of National Sports Day, GGS students took part in a friendly football play in the schoolyard to honour National Sports Day. Students in grades 9 through 11, including girls and boys, were invited to participate in the match. Primary section learners showcased their talent through videos of their favourite sports skills. India celebrates National Sports Day on August 29th, which honours the birth of hockey player Major Dhyan Chand. Dhyan Chand Singh was an Indian hockey player who competed in the Olympics three times, winning gold medals in 1928, 1932, and 1936. According to his book, 'Goals,' he scored 570 goals between 1926 and 1949.
We celebrate his birthday because he taught us something timeless and universal many decades ago that we can still relate to. Dhyan Chand accomplished something despite having the very minimum of resources and support. He accomplished everything on his own.
He was only able to keep on because of a deep, undiscovered need. He has taught us that achievement takes time and that every day, every moment matters.
Such triumphs over adversity motivate us to be stronger, both physically and mentally. Whatever we are going through, we only have to look at what these amazing people have accomplished. That should be enough to get us going once more.
Even your HIIT-obsessed (high-intensity intensive training) workout friend and the runners you see on the street in the morning struggle to stay motivated and inspired. Yes, you are accurate.
Even famous sportsmen who have devoted their lives to a sport confront difficulties. Everyone has difficulties; what sets you apart is how you respond to them.
Perhaps, it is worth remembering Michael Jordan who said, “I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. Twenty-six times I’ve been trusted to take the game-winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”—Michael Jordan.
