PLAY like a CHAMPION, TRAIN Like an UNDERDOG!
When a champion play he/she plays like they are in control of all aspects of the game. They play to only to win. They know when and what to do. When an underdog practices he/she practices it with their full soul and body. They practice very hard as they know nothing and they have nothing to lose or be egoistic of and leave the practice.
That is why when we play we should play like a champion who have whole control of his/her actions and knows what to do and when to do. And when we practice we should practice like an underdog with our full efforts. We should not be egoistic and practice partially.
If we practice like a champion we will practice very little as we will think we are a champion and doesn’t need to practice as we are aware or master of everything. Which will degrade our performance and will cause us to fall someday.
