[1: 1,408 of 10,000] Winning Team

In Review on March 8, 2015 at 2:27 PM

I watched Moneyball again and here is what I contemplated this time –

MoneyballTrailer03

Billy Beane (Brad Pitt) and Peter Brand (Jonah Hill) dared to assemble a winning team. They disregarded the qualities of the individuals that made them a liability, instead they focused on what can they do to be contributor to a winning team. It’s amazing how selected people are able to find out the gem in somebody, and even more amazing is to group this misfits and believe it works.

Billy summed it all when he said, “You may not look like a winning team, but you are one. So, play like one tonight.”

The movie shows the real life, we have baggage that we can’t seem to let go, we have responsibilities to our loved ones, we care how we made mistakes from past decisions, and we get hit by losing! When we hit the bottom, there is no other options but to keep standing up, find new ways, and dare – well ideally anyway.

They say we are alive right now because we have a purpose. I am so scared of life right now that I wanted to give up and I don’t want to see my purpose get realised because I loss and got hurt. I know that I know what I want but because of my pain, my dreams become blurry and it’s harder for me to move on and trust myself. The movie was a great reminder, I am a misfit to where I have been, and all I have to do is find the team that would make the team a winner with my contribution, what I am simply saying is I will find where I belong, because as much as I get blinded that I can do it alone, I couldn’t and I shouldn’t.

[1: 563 of 10,000] 15 Life Lessons From A Game Called Charmed

In Article on February 29, 2012 at 12:00 AM

My siblings and I like Charmed. We have an ongoing game in our iPod Touch that has now earned a score of 3.2 million. Playing it almost everyday forced me to give substantial reflections when compared to actual living or be a better person.

  1. Charmed got gold bricks to capture as life has goal to accomplish.
  2. Charmed got Hint for help as life has experts who we can count on.
  3. Charmed is timed as life has expiry. If we don’t use time wisely, we can never turn it back and could easily hit game over.
  4. Our single move could change the whole field or one decision could trigger a domino effect. It may take one belief to change our own destiny.
  5. If we decide too fast we neglect to see the better options.
  6. If we thought we made the mistake of choosing the right one, an unforeseen blessing may just come along.
  7. Good works are rewarded with bonuses.
  8. We are scored whether we admit it or not. There is a set of standard that guides us if we are satisfied and fulfilled in our own output. Read the rest of this entry »

[1: 383 of 10,000] My Basketball Free Throw Experience

In Article on September 29, 2011 at 10:19 AM

Back in high school I watch a lot of basketball games and cheered for our school but I never played one; I may have hold a ball even at an early age but I never really played a game. In college one of the P.E. games were basketball so I got no choice but to play it (I later sign up for Table Tennis varsity especially when they said I am about to enroll in a dancing class).

Our P.E. professor taught us the technique on how to shoot a free throw, she said bend your knee strategically, shoot the ball into the basket like Michael Jordan, and since I’m female it will help to jump as I release the ball to give it more effort. It really worked! I tried shooting without the help of the jump and it falls short.

It is amazing that people learn certain techniques and we use it to ensure success or we’re modest enough to listen and do it to achieve notable accomplishments; but the most amazing thing is if we keep trying new things and it was us who discovered the secret techniques and share it to the world. Honestly, I like the latter, I want to try different things all the time because I want to be one of those people who have keen senses and able to communicate the wonderful experience of “How-To” to people that can change their lives for the better.
