The world cup has been quite exciting.
I thoroughly enjoyed watching the opening ceremony with all the glitz and glamor.
I am so excited that South Africa has done an excellent job of presenting a more realistic and objective view of Africa to the world.
There’s no denying the fact that the the world cup has had a lot of twists and turns.
Amidst the deafening blast of vuvuzellas, whistles and drumbeats, a lot of unexpected events have happened especially on the field of play.
Teams that were tipped for the trophy have fallen like broken bricks in a tsunami.
Their dreams have been shattered like egg shells.
On the other side of the coin, countries that were hitherto disregarded have now emerged and in some cases, re-emerged as forces to reckon with.
I don’t want to mention names but if you have been following the world cup, you know what I’m talking about.
Well, I may sound like a football enthusiast but this article is not really about soccer, it’s about a much bigger game.
I’m talking about the game of life.
Life has several similarities with the game of football but I’d keep that for another post.
I know it’s easy to criticize football players while you watch from the comfort of your home or office but you need to ask yourself the question,”how many goals have I scored this year?”
The year is already halfway through.
The days are flying by and before you know it, the year would be over.
The least you could do is to take an inventory of your life and identify the areas you need to work on.
I have done that myself and I can tell you that I know what exactly I need to do to make this new half of this year more productive and rewarding than the first.
The truth is that some teams put up an awful performance during the first half but they came up strong and got the victory during the second half.
They played differently.They performed better and they won.
Regardless of how bad things were between January and June, you can still make a difference and accomplish your objectives before the year runs out.
I have identified a few things you could do to make that happen and I’d be sharing that in the next blog post so stick around.
