Do you have 10 minutes to charge yourself? This article is only to boost you. So it’s highly recommended to read this article from beginning to end.
There was a man in the Hungarian army. He was one of the best pistol shooters of his country in 1938. He won most of the national and international shooting championships.
He was too close to winning a gold medal in 1940 Tokyo, Olympic. And that was his only goal and only dream.
Karoly Takacs was so much focused and confident to win a gold medal for his country in the 1940 Tokyo Olympic. For he has practiced for years and years.
He wanted to make his hand the best shooting hand in the world. But Alas! One day the dream became dust and broken.
In 1938 in an army training camp, unfortunately, one hand grenade exploded in Karoly’s right hand.
On that hand he was just to win a gold medal, he lost it on a bomb blast. Which was his dream, which was his focus, everything finished.
Now, he had 2 options.
- Spends his full life by regreting, crying, being depressed
- Keep his dream alive with the very small light of hope
Imagine yourself in the same situation. What would you have done? Leave a comment below and let us know.
Karoly not focused on his right, but left hand. He focused on what he had. What he had now?
Only his left hand. The hand with which he couldn’t even write.
He was admitted to the hospital for 1 month. And right after the month, he started training with his only hand.
He trained so hard with his left hand for a year.
In 1939, Karoly went to a national shooting championship in Hungary. His colleagues were happy and delighted to see him.
They told him to come up on the competition and cheer for them. But Karoly answered that he was not there to cheer for them. But to compete with them.
No one knew about Karoly’s complete 1-year training. Everyone was so much shocked and surprised! How can it be possible!
Everyone was there to compete with their best hand and Karoly was there to compete them with his only hand. The competition began.
Who won? The man with the only hand. He won the national championship.
But he didn’t stop there. Karoly’s goal was crystal clear. He wanted to become the best pistol shooter in the world by winning the gold medal in the Olympic.
He had to make his only hand the best shooting hand in the world. Now he was focusing on 1940 Olympic.
But 1940 Tokyo Olympics got canceled due to world war 2. But he didn’t lose hope.
And he concentrated and trained again for 1944 Olympics.
But again, it was canceled.
It was very frustrating, very very frustrating for a human being to keep patience. But did he gave up? No.
Karoly believed in never give up. He prepared himself for the 1948 Olympics.
He was only 28 in 1938 and He is 38 in 1948. Competing with the younger shooters and making him the best shooter nationally was not easy. It was hard. Very hard.
1948 Olympics started, He went there from Hungary. The competition began. Everyone was competing for each other with their best hand. But Karoly was competing with his only hand.
Who won? Karoly…!
Károly Takács got the gold medal in shooting in 1948 Olympics. He was unstoppable. In 1952 he again won the gold medal in the Olympics and changed the history of Olympics.
No one before Karoly Takacs done that.
Go and meet a loser. He will give you a long list of excuses that made him a loser. That made me a loser, This made me the loser. Time was so hard for me so I gave up, blah blah.
If you go and meet a winner he will have only reason to win, that he never give up.If you want to spread the light like the sun, you have to learn to burn yourself like the sun - APJ Abdul Kalam Click To Tweet
