Through her unparallel determination and courage, PV Sindhu became the 1st Indian shuttler to win gold at World Championships.
Her hard work and never quitting attitude are definitely the cornerstones of her success. Here are her 14 powerful quotes by Sindhu that tell us why she is a winner.
No loss is ever enough, neither one nor many to stop me from believing in myself.
The goal isn’t a medal. The goal is to beat the best.
The greatest asset is a strong mind. If I know someone is training harder than I am I have no excuses.
In my early years, I would travel 56 km from home to the training institute and back every single day.
Every time I miss a return, every time my shot fails to clear the net and every time I hit it long, I remind myself – It is not done until I am done.
My period days didn’t make me falter: they made me more determined to pursue my dreams.
The key is not being overconfident. You should not think that because I’m a top-ranked player, I will win this game. You have to be focused.
There will be many obstacles in the pursuit of your dreams. I had long hours of training, balancing studies and badminton.
Your dreams are what define your individuality. They have the power to give you wings and make you fly high.
You win some and lose some. It’s all part of the game. You have to take it in a very positive way.
I have learnt many things, but there’s more to learn. Every day is a new start.
Giving up is not an option.
Let nothing stand in the way of your dreams, let nothing pull you down, let nothing beat you.
Winning becomes a habit when sweating for it becomes an attitude.
Thanks for inspiring us, PV Sindhu!
