Businessman Anand Mahindra shared a video on Twitter today that has all the Friday morning motivation you need. The video, where two teams are seen playing kabaddi, shows the importance of not giving up.
Mr Mahindra said that the video was sent to him with the following message: "Even in an adverse situation, one shouldn't give up till the last moment as it is possible to transform failure into success". "Couldn't agree more," the 64-year-old tweeted, praising a move where the defender manages to pull the raider back and win the game against all odds.
"Haven't seen this stunt too often, even in #PKL!" wrote Mr Mahindra, referring to the domestic Pro Kabaddi League.

Anand Mahindra, Chairman of India's autos-to technology conglomerate Mahindra Group, often shares inspirational posts on Twitter with his seven million followers. In September, he shared a video of a toddler, born with arms, learning to feed herself using her legs, to make a point about facing challenges and making the most of life. After that, it was a picture of children playing carrom with a board drawn in mud that he hailed as "inspiring".
