Must Read Life Lessons - What being Proud & Arrogant Made A Croatian Player Miss
How Being Proud &
Arrogant Made This Croatian Player Miss
The World Cup Finals (Life Lessons)

Croatia came to this World Cup with only
two natural strikers. Mario Mandzukic,
The other was Nikola Kalinic.

Kalinic was on the bench for Croatia’s
first game against Nigeria. With five
minutes to end that game, coach
instructed him to dress up and replace
another player.

Kalinic angrily refused to play, in protest
of being left on the bench..

He saw himself a top player, and
wouldn’t come on for just five minutes.

The coach turned to other player Pjaca

Kalinic flew for holidays, and even
posted pictures of himself enjoying

After all, he seem to imagine Croatia
won’t go anywhere in the tournament.

But without him, the team managed to
win their matches.

Croatia achieved their greatest football
achievement in history, reaching the
World Cup final.

heroes. Their names forever inscribed in
the hearts of generations..

because of minutes of anger, pride and
bloated ego..

late. These stories about life are quite
familiar to us, but do we really learn
lessons from them? As they profoundly
apply to all spheres of life?

Learn to cut pride, learn to control anger
and deflate ego. And ultimately, learn to
say SORRY.

Years of sweat and dedication can all be
shattered by moments of anger and

Don’t be a Kalinic!!

Good Day and Happy Weekend
