“If I pressure people to do things too much, they’ll simply turn against the things I’d like them to do,’ she said one time.”
Usain BoIt shares his story about his life took a 360° turn when he was involved in an accident. The autobiography tells a story about determination, humility and watching a dream become a reality. Usain Bolt is a retired Jamaican athlete and Olympiad. Usain Bolt’s parents encouraged him to pursue his studies and be able to communicate and express himself well because it will be a struggle if he went to international competitions. The values instilled in Usain Bolt by his parents stuck with him and they surely carried him far. Carrying two buckets of water helped develop his muscles. Whenever he played with his friends the sound of his barking dog would signal him to race back home. Little did he know that the dog’s bark was his first whistle. Usain Bolt made a lot of mistakes in his career but these mistakes shaped him into the best athlete.
Usain Bolt had a great support system (his family and his coach Glen Mills) and they always encouraged him to reach his full potential. Usain Bolt grew to treat his body as an asset and he avoided eating junk food, medication and caffeinated drinks. Usain Bolt had people who did not like him and when he failed he believed he had failed the nation and not himself. But with time he learnt to believe in himself and not to beat himself up when he failed. Bolt had scoliosis but that did not prevent him from winning numerous medals.
WHAT I LEARNT FROM THE BOOK
*Never forget who you are.
*You are your cheerleader and fight the demons in your head.
*Not everyone is going to like you but that’s okay.
“Bang! Winning was like an explosion, a rush. Joy, freedom, fun – it hit me all at once. Taking the line first felt great, especially in something as big as a school sports day race, an event that officially made me the fastest kid in Waldensia.”
