The Power of the Under Dog

                                       The Power of the Under Dog

There was a supposed story that one night President Obama and his wife Michelle decided to do something out of routine and go for a casual dinner at a restaurant that wasn't too luxurious. When they were seated, the owner of the restaurant asked the President's Secret Service if he could please speak to the First Lady in private. They obliged and Michelle had a conversation with the owner.

Following this conversation President Obama asked Michelle, "Why was he so interested in talking to you?" She mentioned that in her teenage years, he had been madly in love with her. President Obama then said, "So if you had married him, you would now be the owner of this lovely restaurant," to which Michelle responded, "No. If I had married him, he would now be the President
We all know the super stars, but we don’t know their managers  and publicist, we all know the great sports men and women but we tend to forget the names of their coaches after some time, we all know the record breakers but we don’t know the people who kept them in line. We always admire the beauty of the cake and never the utensils that were used to make them……….
Who else would play the role of telling Mohammed Ali the right way to throw punches and dodge them? And keep on encouraging him to keep on going, to keep on pushing that there is a break through right out the door? Who else will carry him on than his under dogs? There was always a particular time when the greats couldn’t keep on going, there were some times they just wanted to quit, they were just swerving on the wrong part. But there was that wife that put them on the right part, there was that Personal Assistant that explained the repercussion of the next action. There has to be that person looking for a way the Singer can sell more records, there has to be that person that helps the scientist not to quit on the seemingly research, what life will be like if there was no one to tell anyone that there will be light right out the tunnel one day.
For us humans we play the underdog for one person or the other, we must learn to be patient, ready to take insults from our Supervisors or our friends, because it isn’t easy being everyone’s hero, because there are always great expectation wanted from them by the world, and any mistake blows of criticism will hit hard. One has to be humble, don’t be envious of the celebrities, most celebrities are always thankful to some people because they know they couldn’t be where they are right now without you, because you were there to help them birth their dreams amidst all impossibilities and difficulties to carry on when no positive result was showing up, when the divorce hit hard on them you where the shoulder to lean on, you pulled them through the bad situations and made them reach their destination. When you play the background guy you are able to view your trainee the way they cannot see themselves, they can’t view their flaws themselves, you can see were they are getting it wrong and you help them pull through to get it right “no man is an island”. The President can’t rule on his own he needs his advisers to give some new ideas to get the nation to the next level, he may not acknowledge his advisers when people are praising  him “a job well done”, but who cares? What is on your mind is getting the job done, you see the task ahead of them and you know they can’t carry on by themselves and you know the best turn the whole working process should take.  In Basketball there is a training where a person throws the ball to a player and the players makes a basket, the result of the basket is dependent on the on how the player makes the basket and also how the ball was given to him, you work hard for someone to make the basket and the whole result a times just depends on your pass

There is a saying that goes that “behind every great man there is a woman”, but right here “behind every great man there is a person(s) pushing the buttons to make everything work out”, the guy that found Justin Beiber said in his movie “Never say never” that” “we are comfortable being the underdog  as far as we make everything happen”  in all you do try  your best in being the underdog because without you there is no them.
