With the Indian team reaching the Cricket World Cup finals, sports fever has gripped the country like never before. As the nation fervently supports the “Men in Blue”, questions about how to secure victory in the final match are dominating the thoughts and discussions of everyone rallying behind the team.
In the now-viral video, shared on Sadhguru’s social media handles, a person asked Sadhguru for a tip for the Indian Cricket Team to bring the World Cup back. Responding in his inimitable style, Sadhguru said, “Don’t try to win the Cup, just hit the damn ball! If you think of this 1 billion people baying for the Cup, you will miss the ball, or if you think of all the other fanciful things that will happen if you win the World Cup, the ball will knock off your wickets.”
“So, how to win this World Cup? Don’t think about that. How to hit the damn ball? How to knock off the opposition’s wickets. That’s all you have to think about. Don’t think about the World Cup. Then you will knock off the World Cup.”
Earlier, sharing best wishes with the Indian cricket team before the semi-final match against New Zealand, Sadhguru’s channel on X posted a video highlighting the importance of the process: “Nobody can work on a consequence; you can only work on a process… Now, the process is a daily ongoing thing. Success is only in other people’s eyes. They think you are successful; they think you are a failure. But essentially, what you are doing is the process, right?” he said.
