All of sudden Arsenal supporters, Chelsea fans and Manchester United enthusiasts took time to appreciate this fairy-tale story of a “small” team doing the unthinkable.
There is something attractive and seductive about the underdog story, it always quickly wins you over. It is amazing how many people are still talking about this story till today.
It is the same theme with the Big Bang theory. Most movies and sitcoms are about the popular girl or guy who dresses well, has cool friends and always comes out tops. Something like James Bond or Two and a half men
However with the Big Bang theory geeks rule and the popular girl is the “dull” one. Dr Sheldon Cooper, Dr Leonard Hofstadter, Dr Raj Koothrappali, Howard Wolowitz, Bernadette Rostenkowski-Wolowitz and Dr Amy Farrah fowler are the geeks of the show. Penny who would be the popular sexy girl in another sitcom is the odd one out in this case! It is probably the reason why it is arguably the most successful sitcom to date.
I learn something through all this and it is that everyone has a chance to make it but only if they see it that way. The story of the underdog is Still filling up the cinemas and it certainly was packing up the King Power stadium in England.
All of a sudden the young entrepreneur who is just starting off, who has to face competition from big corporates with big cash flow has hope.
All of a sudden the average student whose parents are divorced and feels everything is against him will feel he also stands a fighting chance.
This is the message from the Big Bang theory and recently this is the same message from the story of Leicester CITY FC the current English Football champions for the first time in about a 130 years of history.
If you are feeling like everything is against you in life, like you have big dreams but they feel unrealistic because you are too far off from your finish line. Look no further for hope.
Leicester CITY football team cost a whole lot less money to assemble, some players came as free agents. That means nothing was paid for them in transfer fees, in simpler terms they were unwanted by their previous clubs. They were rejects! They were excess baggage in other teams but they chose believe for something bigger and go all out for it!
To even say they stood a chance to win the league against expensively assembled sides like Manchester City, Manchester Unted and Chelsea FC you would have been taking chances. they were far off, just mere dreamers just like you feel like right now!
However here we are about 9 months later and the unexpected underdogs have shown the power of hard work and dedication. No corruption, No inside contacts, No nepotism, No black magic, just pure grit from ambitious average people.
You do not have to have the capital in your bank account to start a business. You do not always have to be a citizen to be able to own a house in a foreign country. You do not have to be the smartest kid to make it in life and you do not have to be the most beautiful person to get married.
Let us get back to dreaming again, I dare you to use this story as an inspiration. Someone could be writing about your story one day because life is by design!
