CWC 2015 - Angelo Mathews - Sri Lankas GO-TO Man

Can handle crisis with superb ease.

Angelo is very analytical and has tremendous talent for unravelling complicated issues and situations. His life is actually problem free, and he is happiest when he is testing his own ingenuity; if life does not present him with problems to overcome his natural response is to seek them out. 

He is a life saver who is capable of restoring order and bringing in hope in depressing situations. The reverse is also true he has a habit of playing the devil’s advocate and injecting difficulties into simple procedures sometimes being disorganised can be harmful.

Angelo's greatest challenge is enjoying the ordinary, The way forward is to understand that that a fulfilling and happy life is not one of extremes but of steady, positive feelings about every aspect of his life even chores and routine.

To enhance luck its very important that Angelo makes every day special, understand that everyday in his life including those that are without highlights is unique and special. Never waste an opportunity to feel positive and upbeat about his life.

Learn that change begins from the inside out. Once he is able to understand the life changing fact that his destiny is to influence, motivate and inspire others with his resilience ingenuity and flair life will be super successful.

Power Thought:
“Everyday offers me an opportunity to learn something new about myself”

CWC 2015 - Kumar Sangakkarra Needs Self Belief

Kumar needs to recognise his own worth.

He has the ability to make a lasting and positive impression on all those he meets. Extremely versatile and sensitive to the feelings of others he loves harmony and likes nothing better than bringing in smiles to everyone around him. 

Paradoxically however underneath his sociable and relatively normal persona he is riddled with doubts insecurities, contradictions and hidden fears. Learning to develop faith in his abilities is crucial to your success and happiness in life. 

Kumar needs to believe in himself and his talents. Once he has accepted that to be human is to be complex, his destiny will point the way towards progress through the most unlikely of approaches.

Kumar Sangakkara ‘s greatest challenge is to be true to himself and the way forward is to understand that until he is true to who he is life will forever feel confusing and overwhelming.

His luck is enhanced if he could visualize what he deserves with positive expectation the way he wants to be and his behaviour will catch up with the mental image of himself, attarcting good luck in the process.

Power Thought for Kumar
“It is safe for me to look within”

God Bless

CWC 2015 - Sri Lanka Scrape Through Against Afghanistan

#SriLanka v #Afghanistan , #Dunedin
22nd Feb 2015

A brilliant #century by #MahelaJayawardene ensured #SL scraped through to a close win against the minnows in a Pool A game at Dunedin.

Sri Lanka made heavy weather of the modest 232 target set by Afghanistan.
At one stage, an upset was on the cards and things got really uncomfortable for the 1996 world champs but #ThisaraPerera and #JeevanMendis kept their cool and used experience to guide SL to a win in Dunedin.

Afghanistan's inexperience in such situations showed as they couldn't press for a win but a very commendable performance from them for sure.
