WAINAO N°10 - THE MOMENT
WHY NOW? BECAUSE HARDWORK IS THE REASON WHY MARTA SUCCEEDED. THERE IS THAT FALSE NARRATIVE THAT CHAMPIONS HAVE GOD GIVEN TALENT, AND THEY RELY ON IT IN THE BIGGEST MOMENTS. FALSE ! SHE'S EXTREMELY TALENTED BUT SHE JUST DID WHAT SHE PRACTICED ALL HER LIFE.
Champions don't think faster than others, they don't think. They dont't think about the moment, They just do what they practiced their entire lives. Marta shocked the world that day but she just did what she used to do. It was her, the defender and the ball. The ball came and she just reacted.
People always wonder how she can try something like that with such a pressure..why not? That's just a move like the others and she mastered all her moves.
“ SHE DIDN’T THINK ! she trained all her life to not think. When the moment comes, you got one second. You hesitate-you fail. You Think...when you didn’t work hard enough !"
“In football, HOW great you are will never NEVER be more important ….than WHEN you are great….”
