Motivational Lessons to learn from Sachin Tendulkar!

Tendulkar’s ability to read the ball early, pluck spin off of a bowler’s hand, knock through gaps in the field, and pace his batting is not his greatest talent. That talent is what has just brought him close to hitting his 50th Test century and reaching 100 international hundreds. It is his capacity to strive for continual improvement in his performance, even after he appears to have mastered a task.

He was able to escape the difficulties that come with having a long career thanks to this talent. Hunger is a huge and fantastic name for this specific ability. The less glamorous term is discipline, which is also the more appropriate word. How can the unceasing effort and gradual progress that come with discipline be anything to be amazed and inspired by? If Tendulkar’s hitting has taught us anything over the past 20 years, it is the absolute virtue of discipline—the extra half-hour spent in the nets even after more agile and younger teammates have struck the boundary. Because of his dedication, Tendulkar is still able to amass 1,500 magnificent runs in a year at the age of 37. This is a winning streak that eludes not just youthful players but also similar competitors like Ricky Ponting. Tendulkar’s influence is so great that, for a lot of us who have followed him throughout his international career, his discipline really appeals to us more than his straight drive—after all, the latter is only the skill of hitting a cricket ball, whereas the former is the mastery of a strong body and mind.

Tendulkar’s career’s astounding longevity serves as a practical lesson on maintaining focus. In addition to bringing joy to his admirers and followers, his 22-year career—which includes 50 test centuries and 46 one-day international tons—can serve as a veritable manual for businesses on excellence, leadership, and management.

What teachings does Tendulkar impart? We got some input from some CEOs who are passionate about cricket.

The most crucial lesson is that ability without self-control is just glitter. You get nowhere with it. Businesses and entrepreneurs who lack a certain level of discipline and rigor will never be successful. “Tendulkar is fanatical about his preparation for every single innings he plays, be it a major test match or an unimportant ODI.

He remembers seeing him at Centurion Park during the 2003 World Cup match between India and Pakistan, where Tendulkar was sitting by himself with his equipment, possibly envisioning the game-winning 98 he would finally play.

“With Shane Warne at the height of his powers during Australia’s 1998 tour of India, Tendulkar realized how important it would be to counter the legspin coming out of the rough. He had retired leg spinner L Sivaramakrishnan bowl around the wicket and into the rough in the nets a few weeks before to the start of the tour.

Even if Tendulkar’s two terms as captain were miserable, he currently seems to guide the squad by his performance rather than being called a leader. The object of the game of cricket is to make the best decisions in the smallest amount of time between when the ball leaves the bowler and when it reaches the other end.

Sachin has become an expert at making the best judgments imaginable. It is a necessary attribute for effective leadership. Additionally, leaders must be able to think of multiple solutions to a given issue. Sachin possesses numerous

Tendulkar is the personification of the will to start over even after reaching the pinnacle of greatness. He never seems to take a break. CEOs and businesses alike must always consider starting over, even after reaching revenue goals of $1 billion or more. The thing that makes him exceptional is that, despite doing the same thing for the past 25 years, he does it with more fervor each time he steps onto the field. Other than cricket, he has never tried his hand at anything else. The hitting crease, his 21/2-square-foot home, is where he feels most safe.
