“Our thoughts about what we are and what we can be precisely determine what we can be.” ― said great American author, Anthony Robbins.
A focused mind, a drive to achieve something, determination, hard work, courage and love for struggle, is what makes a man successful.
Success could never be achieved without overcoming your weakness and realizing your mistakes. You have to earn it.
As Paulo Coelho puts it-
“Whenever you want to achieve something, keep your eyes open, concentrate and make sure you know exactly what it is you want. No one can hit their target with their eyes closed.”
Indian cricketers are a pride of the nation. We revel in their strength and their brilliant performance in the field. They have made us proud many times. But this strength of character and talent were not innate in everyone.
They had to earn it and they indeed earned it with their optimism and confidence. These cricketers’ believed that they can make it big. They knew that they can turn their lives into something completely different.
Not only their performance but their wonderful abodes too tell a story of their own. They are the proud owners of these phenomenal houses. Seeing these then-and-now pictures of their houses, one could never imagine that they could create such a difference. But yes, they did it and with style!
Here are some Indian cricketers’ houses that will motivate you towards success
1. Virat Kohli
Nobody could have ever imagined that Virat has made such achievements in such a young age. His achievements are phenomenal.
2. Irfan Pathan and Yusuf Pathan
The royal palace was not always the same. They had to work really hard to acquire such position. The two brothers used to live in a mosque where their father led prayers as they couldn’t afford a proper house.
3. Ravindra Jadeja
His father was a private watchman who earned very little enough to feed his family. But Jadeja was not the one to be restricted to his boundaries. He had already decided to achieve something in his life. And therefore, from a small house in Jamnanagar, Gujrat to his RJ palace, his success is quite conspicuous.
4. Sachin Tendulkar
The master-blaster has indeed made a great difference to his life including his astonishing house. It is spread over 6,000 square feet. Earlier he used to live in a small apartment with his parents and three elder siblings.
5. Mahendra Singh Dhoni
If you have seen his biopic you must recognize his then house. From a flat of 2 rooms to a grand villa to his name, he has completely owned it.
6. Suresh Raina
The house on the left is his ancestral home. His parents sold it after moving to Ghaziabad, Uttar Pradesh. His current house is a delight to watch.
