I get a newsletter on positive thinking and entrepreneurship every week from an enterprising kid ,who in a way inspired me to start this blog .This week's installment has the story of a 10-year-old boy who decided to learn judo despite the fact that he had lost his left arm..Read on to know what happened to him..
Even after many months of training, he had only been taught one move. However, the boy kept his faith and soon he entered his first tournament.
To his surprise, he won every match with his one move and won the tournament.
On the way home, the boy summoned the courage to ask his master, 'How did I win the tournament with only one move?'
'You won for two reasons: first, you’ve mastered one of the most difficult throws in all of judo. And second, the only known defense for that move is for your opponent to grab your left arm.'
Maybe acceptance of our shortcomings and channeling our energies in the right direction can help us use our weaknesses to our advantage...
