What a better way to start the day than feeling Victorious? Every morning the shower deos not only rejuvenate my body but also gives me strength and courage beyond measure, I learnt the secret from elsewhere. In July 2017 when Andy Murray (British tennis player) was interviewed after winning the Wimbledon Championships he acknowledged that he had ice baths every night to be fit for Wimbledon. From this point of view it could be argued that the occasional and strategic subjection to the cold hardens a man. I for one I know that if I brave myself in the morning and overcome my fears, come what may through out the day I will conquer anything (please don’t try this at home). Afterwards im armoured with invincibility to dare to tap into any potential within my extremities. In general in life we are not rewarded for the comfortable choices but for great efforts and the will to explore things outside our comfort zones. Similarly the bible acknowledges that strait is the gate and narrow is the path which leadeth unto life (Mathew: 7 vs 14). Better yet the exhilaration of victory after taking the cold shower is beyond measure.
Without hardening ourselves we become soft or worse.
Even Kanye said that what don’t kill me makes me stronger. It is written in James 1:2 “My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall…”
however this was referring to temptations and trying of faith. Knowing that the trying of faith worketh patience teaches us to embrace temptations. The same could be said about the challenges that we face. After braving myself in the shower taking that one step off the shower chair is paramount to me, the floor coupled with the shower chair will be wet susceptible to slipping knowing that one mishap could land me on the floor which could have dire consequences. However if I make that sometimes after careful negotiation I never look back and the whole day I will sustain square shoulders like a victorious male lobster high on serotonin (popularly thought to be a contributor to feelings of well-being and happiness). Aubrey Marcus cited that a great ancient Japanese swordsman Miyamoto Musashi said:
Today is victory over yourself of yesterday; tomorrow is your victory over lesser men.
Therefore if I’m victorious in the morning I know that to some extent I can conquer anything.
Practically, Radisson Blue Nice, France is the best international disabled hotel room that I have ever stayed in, despite that the shower principle still applies. Disappointedly there is no emergency buzzer in the shower and the wider room.
