Cricket God : Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar : An Inspiration to All

Sachin Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar, I don’t think he needs any introduction.


Tendulkar (born 24 April 1973) is an Indian Cricketer. Cricket as popularly known as ‘The game of uncertainty’ has certainly provided us with a big name to cherish. Often known as ‘The God of cricket’, ‘the master blaster’ and ‘the little master’,  holds several batting records, including the most Test centuries and the most one-day international centuries, and was rated in 2002 by Wisden as the second greatest Test batsman ever, after Sir Don Bradman. He received the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna, India’s highest sporting honour, for 1997-1998, and the civilian award Padma Shri in 1999. Tendulkar was a Wisden Cricketer of the Year in 1997. 

Name: Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar

Born: April 24, 1973 (Mumbai, India)

International Debut: Nov 15, 1989

Batting: Right-hand Batsman

Bowling: Right-arm Off-break, Leg-break Googly

Nicknames: Master Blaster, Little Champion, Batting Maestro, Run Machine, and God of Cricket.

What can we learn from Sachin?

The 3 Laws
  • Passion: Passion is the no 1 factor for his success. No doubt about it. If you want to become successful in life then you must have the passion, the zeal to succeed.
  • Never give Up attitude: Giving up soon is a coward’s nature. Sachin has a tremendous never give up attitude. This is a major factor which contributed to his success.
  • Never Give Up your Dream: Never compromise your dreams. If you are really interested in something then go for it. If Sachin had chosen to do join Engineering 20 years back then you can imagine where he would have been today. So always select the best that you can do. Chose the right career.
Applying the 3 laws to Studies

Passion: Passion means the burning desire to succeed. If you have a passion in something then no one can stop you from achieving it. Take for e.g. Think of any your past success which you achieved in your life. It may be anything like winning awards in sports, Singing, Dancing or Studying etc. Did you analyze why you succeeded in the above events? I will tell you. The reason you won was because of your passion, your determination. If you have it then success is yours. It’s a simple funda.

Never Give UP Attitude: This is the famous quality of all the successful person in the world. It runs like a chain among all of them. In studies too this attitude is a MUST. If you are not able to solve a problem then it doesn’t mean that you should close your book and start worrying about it. The way to get over this is by trying and trying again until you succeed. Try to solve the problem for 15 min to half an hour. Even if you are not able to solve it then no problem, at least you can improve your concepts with this technique which is very important and useful.

Never give Up your Dream: Last but not the least never give up of what you dream. If suppose a student’s wants to join Arts and wants to become a journalist but due to the parental pressure he’s forced to join Engineering. But later he never succeeds in this field and fails just because his aptitude and interest lies in Arts.

If you apply these 3 Laws on yourself then I am sure that no one can stop you from succeeding in your life.

It’s just the burning desire which will make you study; otherwise studying just for name sake is useless.

Giving up too early is not recommended by anyone. You should try until you completely sweat yourself out. A student preparing for IIT JEE faces tons of traumas while preparation, like not able to solve tough problems, losing focus, low on motivation etc…

But these problems can be eradicated just by following the laws given above. It’s not Impossible to crack the Impossible. Nothing is Impossible as Impossible too say I M POSSIBLE.

Don’t run after Success, run after excellence.
