Inspite of losing the game against the mighty Germans 0-1, USA has advanced to round of  16. There is a saying:
"It is not the mountains created by other that we have to climb, it is ourselves that we have to conquer”.
before explaining the above line, let me ask one simple question before we go ahead. Why do you think people succeed?
If we were to take general opinion, most of the answers will fall in the category of
1)      Genius/Talented
2)      Luck
3)      Destiny
4)      Hard Work
But very few people will say what I believe is the biggest reason for anyone to succeed or for that matter, anyone to be happy in their lives – Will Power to conquer our own mind!
And today USA just proved that in the group of death when out of the blue, they became the second team to qualify for the round of 16 ahead of Ghana and Portugal. Nobody, not even a single person believed them except probably the 23 players and their coach Jurgen Klinsmann.
Who would have thought that USA will proceed ahead but they still did?
That is why I have always said that no matter what everyone thinks about your chances in life, if you believe in yourself, then you are bound to succeed sooner than later.
As per Jurgen Klinsmann – “Everybody said we had no chance but we took that chance”
What an inspiring win by Clint Dempsey, Tim Howard and their team….
If you are a USA fan and even if you are not, think about it what you can learn from this win. Yes you can celebrate but if you want to take it a level ahead: tell yourself today that if you are like USA team in your life, you will turn it around the way USA did in World Cup 2014 in Brazil.

First Costa Rica and now USA, simply inspiring results even for sports fans!
In the end I will again end with this quote:
 “It is not the mountains created by other that we have to climb, it is ourselves that we have to conquer”.

USA advances in the group of death beating all the odds- A very important lesson to be learnt from Jusrgen Klinsmann and the US team!

Article first published as A Journey, A Dream: US Women All Set To Rewrite History on Technorati. (Author-Apeksha HA)

It was the fourth time in World Cup history that a team came back to win after falling behind in extra time, and a first at the Women’s World Cup last Sunday. But this was just the beginning.The fairy tale continued on Wednesday for the US women’s soccer team at the World Cup as US defeated France 3-1. Abby Wambach, the star forward again came to the rescue again with a late goal in 79th minute which spurred the comeback.
This is the same team which had faced a possible exit in the quarter finals against Brazil if not for the magnificent late goal in 122nd minute of the second half of extra time by Wambach. It was in 1999 that the US last won Women’s World Cup and since then haven’t been able to produce a team with that huge fan appeal. Until now.
This dynamic team has taken the entire US nation by storm and frenzy. People are gathering all over the country at sports bars, households,streets to support their team. Not too far behind are the social media sites which have been inundated with floods of messages of support for this wonderful team.
What is so special about this team is their will to fight back and never give up in any situation. This was evident in both their previous matches where they bounced back at the last stages of the game. What marks this US team is their indomitable spirit and the way they have believed in themselves to perform resulting in huge support and admiration from people all over the world.
The next hurdle and the most important one will be in the form of Japan who are on a course of defining history themselves. Plagued by the memories of the devastating earthquake, the Japanese are all the more geared up to write their own story.
But in the words of Wambach-“This is our journey, This is our dream.”

This US team is certainly not going to give up on their dream of winning the most coveted championship in soccer and more importantly mark the turning point of the growth of soccer back home.
