    UNDERDOG (August 18, 2019)

    (21:35:25 PM 16/08/2019)

    It goes without saying that when it comes to a race or a competition, we humans tend not to mention about underdogs too often. Instead, we speak about the powerful, the influential, the idea-makers, game-changers or the world class leaders - so-called “favourites” - who are highly likely to beat the games. However, the results are sometimes totally different.
    According to Wikipedia, the term “underdog” is defined as: “An underdog is a person or group in a competition, usually in sports and creative works, who is popularly expected to lose. The party, team, or individual expected to win is called the favourite or top dog”.
    The winning of “underdogs” has been witnessed in numerous cases in the history or our real lives. Viet Nam wars were prime examples. Viet Nam was generally considered an underdog, which was far from strong enough to win against big invaders who were armed with up-to-date weapons and well-trained soldiers. Without a doubt, the results turned out to be out of these predators’ expectations. Another instances we should not forget to mention about are the successive victory of Viet Nam soccer team, JK Rowling, Christine Ha and so on.
    Let’s come to Advance this Sunday, share your thoughts and learn some second-hand knowledge about this topic.


    Food for thoughts:
    1. Have you ever regarded yourself as an underdog?
    2. Can you share with us about success stories of underdogs in the history or in reality and explain the reasons for their victories.
    3. Underdog mentality refers to the mindset of an underdog to break through in nearly every aspect of life. How do you take advantage of the “underdog mentality” to achieve your goal?
