Here we are sharing some very important and positive aspects of his life that will inspire all youth of nation for struggle and for success as well…
He starts his day with positivity
Everyone should have a morning ritual for a happy life. Slowly, rituals become habits that make us efficient and fulfilled individuals.
Take one minute to open yourself to a new day. It is very important to wake up early in the morning to start your day with great energy. A sound sleep for at least 7 hours a day is a must.
Mornings are a time when you should keep your mind free from worries and not overthink, which may disturb your thoughts. The mind should be easy and at peace.
“It is as simple as letting go of things which are beyond your control.”
I make sure I drink a bottle of water as soon as I wake up. This removes toxins from the body and keeps it hydrated. Breakfast also plays an important role; it keeps your body energised. Before I go for my training, I eat a pre-workout meal that mainly consists of oatmeal and fruits. I train for almost two hours a day. An hour after my training, I have a heavy breakfast a slice of brown bread, eggs, baked beans and fruits.
His Mantra For Life
“My mantra to start the day well is: No matter what you do in life, stay positive. Try to indulge in a physical activity; it will make you happy. Go for a run, walk or jog. Stay connected to your loved ones; they will be your greatest strength.”
The low point of his life:–Not getting a work permit to play for UK club Queens Park Rangers
