Hi, this is Lilja, welcome back to my channel! In this inspirational face painting video I will be showing you how to paint the Croatian flag while continuing to share some thoughts about attacking and defending. I talked about this in my last video of the series.
So if you don’t know what I’m talking about have a look at the Russian flag tutorial
I made. Now lots of love to all Croatians watching this video and to everyone – please give this video a thumbs up and subscribe to my channel for more videos like this. So last week I said that when watching football
it is good to not only think about the game itself but also about your own situation.
Because if you connect both you can gain valuable realizations.
A football game is about two things: Attacking and defending.
So now let me explain what defending means. Defending means protecting yourself
against the problems you are facing. We all have problems and situations that are difficult, right? This pertains to everyone. Whether we are at school, at university, at work… There are always situations coming up
which might cause us to lose something we find important and that we love. So how do we prevent this from happening?
How do we protect ourselves the best? Let’s think about a football game.
When the opponent comes closer to your goal you need to be prepared.
You need to think ahead of time, stand at the right spot and use your skill
once the ball comes to you. What does that mean for you? Let’s say that the opponent coming to you
represents a difficult exam. How do you defend yourself
most effectively against failing? You need to study, do your homework during the semester, check what questions might be asked and get enough rest the night before.
And in this way prepare yourself well. If you’re a student
it is your responsibility to study, right? I’m a student too and it’s not always easy for me either
to keep up with what I need to study. But we need to always try to do our responsibilities. Because if we don’t do what we should do
it is like a gap opening for problems to occur, like when there are gaps in the defense of a football team the opponent can use them to score a goal. If we don’t study for our exams we will most likely fail. Of course we cannot prevent everything
from happening. But doing our responsibilities, doing the tasks we need to do
is the best prevention, the best defense! There is also a bonus to this:
If you do what you need to do it is not only protecting yourself from trouble, but with anything you take action on you gain something! You might even score a goal in
your life by defending yourself. Defending is the best way to attack! So if you are inspired to – take a piece of paper or open your favorite app for taking notes and write down the task you’re currently struggling to do.
And then try to attack it and do it. Let me know your thoughts on this topic in the comments. I’d love to hear from you! I wish you lots of energy to tackle the
task you have written down and hope to see you again next time.
