From bronze medallist at the 2009 Sub-Junior Asian Badminton Championships to becoming first Indian shuttler to win World Championships gold in 2019, Pusarla Venkata Sindhu continued her rampaging form to put India on the top of global badminton competition.
In her journey of becoming top shuttler, different lessons that can be emulated in our life and the perspective of her seeing things are many to be learnt.
Few are the things which are helpful for all the fields of life.
a) Sacrifice, this keyword has a lot to do as P V Sindhu has sacrificed the social media life and not used her phone for 3 months. She has even given up things like ice-cream and sweets on the instructions given to her by her coach Pullela Gopichand.
b) Playing with world’s top players or say opponents may be intimidating but remembering that no opponent is too big to defeat, and harkening back own qualities can be learnt well from P V Sindhu and can be harnessed in professional life.
c) Giving extra efforts to achieve our target. Sindhu used to travel 50 km every day to reach her training centre by waking up at 3 am in the morning.
d) Failure is not permanent neither fatal. Having an earlier episode of loses, P V Sindhu never let her stuck into that and nor caused the delay in her winning. Letting go and focussing on the present is another key learning from the Acer.
e) Follow your own passion—not your parents. Rather being the daughter of the tennis player, Sindhu chose her passion, badminton, over any other sport.
