DAILY DIARY_THINK IN ENGLISH CHALLENGE
I watched a news report on the cremation of coronavirus deaths in India. As the number of deaths has increased, the crematoriums have not been able to keep up with the incineration of the bodies, and the traditional method of cremating by piling up wood has been used. A state of emergency has been declared in Tokyo since yesterday. I do not think that Japan will be able to host the Tokyo Olympics, which will start at the end of July.
Mental toughness is the secret to success’ | BBC Ideas
Asha Philip is a sprinter, but when she was younger, she was a trampoline athlete and she became a world junior champion at double mini trampolining. The reason why she stopped being a trampoline athlete is an accident. When she was at the world championships in Quebec, she had a serious injury. With this accident, she had lost everything which she worked hard for. And when she was at that point of just giving up, she felt that that’s when she is meant to really turn her life around. Following a rehabilitation period of several years, she could return to athletics. However, she was repeatedly injured during the period. In spite of repeated injuries, she got through it with her mental toughness. She says that it is important to focus on yourself, both in athletics and life. She had a lot of difficulties, for example, a lot of knockbacks, a lot of exposure to the crowd, but she focused on herself and overcame them. She also says that there are sacrifices, and lots of ways to have fun, but go after your goals, and balance it out the right way. I respect her and agree with her opinion. I think that many people, myself included, are so concerned about their reputation that they only look at their surroundings and can not focus on themselves. As she says, maybe we should focus on ourselves a little more.
