‘Without suffering you cannot achieve anything’ – Zidane ‘proud’ of Madrid stars after coming through Getafe test

How right is Zinedine Zidane in his conclusion about what is required to achieve victory? He acknowledged a lot of things that shows he has the right focus and attitude. “We played against the bottom team, but they always make it difficult for you. Without suffering you cannot achieve anything.

“I think that with patience it was known that the goal could be reached.”

The greatest challenge that we all face in life, is the one where we must deal with our-self, a team, everyone, and someone called, others.

Notice his use of we (team) and not I. What should you also focus on to move the needle from where you are now, to where you desire to be in that particular area of life? I have a few, you may think of more. 

  • Recognize the opponent (size of the goal)
  • Review your capacity (S.W.O.T. – Strength, Weakness, Opportunity, Threats)
  • Know yourself (your team, self-awareness, emotional intelligence etc)
  • Go for the kick (take action)

Zidane, whose in-form Madrid side travel to Athletic Bilbao on Sunday, added: “We knew that we would suffer a lot. They pressed very high, it has cost us a little, but it is normal…have peace of mind, because these are key moments … because it has not been easy, physically or mentally.”

“If you want something, go for it. Giving up should not be an option because only by going forward will you succeed”. — Anna Chui
