Face Your Fear and Conquer Your Dreams

Parachuting commonly known as skydiving is one of the greatest sports on earth. Returning to the earth with the aid of gravity is a breathtaking experience. Although I, Mitesh Shere, a stockbroker by profession but my passion towards sports in immeasurable. I work hard and enjoy harder. I feel that it’s very important for people to balance their work life. Work is a necessity but striving towards your passion is a must. I always make sure that I take time out for the things which I like doing it the most.

Sport is something which motivates me and gives me the adrenaline rush. Skydiving was a great experience for me. It was something which was there in my bucket list, or I can say right at the rim. Skydiving can be done both for recreational and competitive purposes. There are three important phases of activity: the free fall, the descent with open parachute, and the landing. People participating in competitive skydiving are analyzed on the basis of their style in free fall.

It is always good to experience certain things in your lives. If it’s your passion, you get a profound feeling post its completion. Things that have been on your mind for a long time, disintegrates. You feel free from the stress or problems that may have been occurring. The feel when you are thousands of feet away, does not happen every day in your life. You are surrounded by the vast blue sky while flying. The view from the top is spectacular. The beauty of Mother Nature is speechless. You are just by yourself, sailing through the clouds and conquering your fears. Once you win over your fear, there is nothing in the world that is impossible. I am quite sure it will have a positive impact on your perspective of fear and life in general. To know more about me, follow me on twitter- Mitesh Shere

Sports and Finance: The Underlying Parallels

Sports and finance have always fascinated me over the years. I have played amazing sports such as skydiving, skiing, and also poker. With sports, finance is my forte. Having the passion for sports, I eventually felt the underlying parallels between sports and finance. 

What makes me say that? You might ask, Mitesh Shere, what is the parallel in these two different worlds?

Watch these worlds closely, and you will find a deeper value of life in these two different worlds. Sports is physical, and finance is mental. Yet, there is a great sense of connection to these two aspects of life. 

 First, Timing: 
Timing is everything in finance and in sports. If you cannot time your move well, losing is sure. Poker, a game of luck, is what people say, and yet it is a game with strategy. If you understand timing well, you can almost win most of the games and cut losses. It is the same with finance, and more so here. If you can understand when to time your investments, you can be consistently profitable. It’s all about timing. People lose money due to timing moves in the wrong time. If you can identify a right vehicle for investment, you then must learn to time your investments. 

Achievement and personal fulfillment:
Winning sports and winning in investment, both are personally uplifting. If you are a good player, you will know the importance of winning the game. It brings immense joy to watch your money grow. It is also true about playing a sport. Finding yourself in a winning position elevates the spirit. Winning is a high in itself and more you win, you gain great confidence in life. 

Finance and sports: Both are strategy based:
Strategy is everything. It is true with both a game and in investing. Look closely, both need a lot of planning and timing. If you can pick a right strategy, you are surely going to win. Planning and strategizing are two important aspects of winning any game, may it be a poker game or the game of investment. Catch me on Twitter - Mitesh Shere

Scuba Diving- A New Learning Experience

Learning sports is told be children’s endeavour. Well, to a large extent it might be true. However, that is not true with scuba diving. The sport in itself is different from other sports and has a different audience that is attracted to this wonderful sport. I know of people who have learnt scuba diving at very early age and also very late. It does not matter at what age you learn it, all that matters is your interest in the concept of water. 

I , Mitesh Shere -  a major lover of water and I love sports that are related to water. What I have learnt about this sport is summarized in the following part:

Love to explore the sea life:
It is a mystery altogether and it has been so ever since time emerged. There are people who constantly search for ways to find mysteries of the sea and that leads them to love this sport so much. The more you love the life under water, the more ready you are to explore the game. All it takes is to love the sea and its life with all your heart. 

Willingness to learn:
Learning is a process and it requires willingness. My experience is, the more open you are to learning the more you could garner from this sport. The wealth that the sea holds in itself and the mystery that is carried are all yours when you start appreciating the sea. When you show willingness to learn about the sea and the technical aspects of the sport, you get equipped to explore the hidden recesses of the sea. 

You must be healthy:
Being healthy is not of vital importance; however, I would suggest a sense of well-being is important. If you are healthy, you will be able to take the shocking moments that you might encounter under water. Surely, the sport is not for the weak in heart. You must have sound health to really enjoy your journey as a scuba diver and life is all new there. 

Finally, when you start diving regularly, there is a great sense of achievement and all you get is bliss.

Manchester United beaten by PSG

In the international champions cups fight in the city of Chicago, on Wednesday, Paris Saint- Germain won over the powerful team, Manchester United. The game is closely followed by a lot of sport enthusiasts, and so do, I, Mitesh Shere, though a stock broker, and a professional advisor, take time to understand the adrenaline rush during the hour. 

As the game began, it was interesting to watch the first half where Blaise Matuidi and Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored first half goals, taking the team all the way to win the match. The victory that was bestowed was a sure game changer for the French team, moving them to the top 10 teams competing.
It was not an easy time for the PSG, as they were under tremendous pressure, losing the previous game to the Chelsea. This game was an important one, and would decide the fate of the PSG team, and as it was, the team picked early opportunities, and paved way for a great victory over Manchester United. 

 After the game changing by the players of PSG, it will be a wait and watch game to see how will they flair in the days to come. Tough competition is awaiting to the team with teams like New York Red Bulls in line in the game. 

Matuidi and Ibrahimovic, who created the needed platform for win, will have a huge load on the shoulders for the next games, as a lot would be expected from these seasoned players. The 25th and 34th minute were the making moments for this game, and the question is, will the magic continue in the future games too. 

It's a time of the year, and a lot of game to be played and watched. Let’s hope the best team win.
