Sachin's statement - A Huge Honour

  • “All my life, I have had a dream of playing cricket for India. I have been living this dream every day for the last 24 years. It’s hard for me to imagine a life without playing cricket because it’s all I have ever done since I was 11 years old. “It’s been a huge honour to have represented my country and played all over the world. I look forward to playing my 200th Test Match on home soil, as I call it a day,”

“I thank the BCCI for everything over the years and for permitting me to move on when my heart feels it’s time! I thank my family for their patience and understanding. 

Most of all, I thank my fans and well-wishers who through their prayers and wishes have given me the strength to go out and perform at my best,” 

Lessons learned from his statement:-
  • He is chasing his dream from the age of eleven
  • it is a sheer exhibition of deliberate practice, power of passion, focus, concentration
  • working always towards delayed gratification in this instant world
  • As Alchemist[Paulo Coelho] says "When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it."
  • That is why, he is a legend of the legands
  • He is a perfect living example of Swami Vivekkananda's quote 

    “Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life; dream of it; think of it; live on that idea. Let the brain, the body, muscles, nerves, every part of your body be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success, and this is the way great spiritual giants are produced.”
