We asked him for captaincy, he served the country with sheer dedication. M S Dhoni, captained the country which treats cricket like religion. Life doesn’t come with a manual, but a look at captain cool’s life will definitely help us with what to do, what not to do and of course how to do it. So here are 7 quotes which might give you some life handling hacks.
#1 ” It’s like having 100 kgs put over you. After that even if you put a mountain, it will not make a difference”
This is how he handles it. 1.2 billions of expectations, and decides to be cooler than ice. And this is what makes him captain cool and this is the point where he teaches the nation to be calm.
#2 “Till the full stop doesn’t come, the sentence is not over”
Try and try until you achieve. This is what he had taught the nation. M S Dhoni doesn’t give up midway and trains the team for the same.
#3 “There is a very thin line between cooked and overcooked. If you do a barbecue, you can understand that”
He was asked if his team was tired, over cooked at a series loss and this is what he came up with. The man knows to handle his defeat and does not come up with explanations.
#4 ” You have every right to ask me that. It’s your prerogative. But I have right to not to answer”
He keeps his personal and professional lives apart. And he knows how to say ‘NO’. This makes him humble enough to set up a bench mark.
#5 “No I am on national duty. Everything else can wait.”
He was adding up to nation’s glory when his first child was born. Just a week before 2015 World cup, M S Dhoni was bestowed with a baby girl, when asked what was playing on his mind, a nation patriot answered this before a father could take over the emotions.
#6 “I don’t mind repeating things”
The only Indian cricket team captain to win two world cups, that is one in T20 and one in ODI, knows to handle his and his team’s success well with a tinch of wit.
#7 ” I have three dogs at home. Even after losing a series or winning a series, they treat me the same way.”
Nothing is permanent, neither the love you get when you win nor the criticism you face when you lose. And our captain cool knows this. The change in his nation’s behavior doesn’t dishearten him rather he faces this with ease.
So, our captain cool has a lot to offer even when he is not the captain of our Indian Cricket team. Also we are sure that our country’s cricket will always and always miss as potential and as loved captain as him. Because he is and will always remain the captain of our hearts.
