In today’s India versus Bangladesh match, Rohit Sharma went back to pavilion immediately after hitting a century. While all the Indians including him were upset for him being caught, here’s something very few of us noticed:
When walking up to the pavilion, he raised his bat a little bit to wave to the audience.
That was something worth noticing in our own lives. We may have loads of things going on greatly all around us (a record-creating century) yet a lot of people choose to focus on what went wrong and could not be controlled (the loss of a wicket), instead of enjoying what lies in our hands (walk to the pavilion with pride and honour).
It is always up to us where to focus, and our focus decides our locus.
Perhaps no one became great by accident, today might be a good time to exercise a choice.
