UNITY IS STRENGTH
29 January 2016
Marketing and Communications manager Brian Zuma has called on the Team of Choice family to rally together and stand united as the club endures a tough period.
The ability to turn an adverse situation into a positive, does not only require inner strength, but also positive energy around you to maximise whatever energy there is inside. This is even more important if one is part of a group that works together towards a common goal.
The measure of energy that encompasses the group is determined by a combination of individual energies that each member emits. The more members you have emitting positive energy, the stronger and more positive the group is, hence the saying “ UNITY IS STRENGHTH”. It is very difficult to break the spirit of a united force, and work becomes easier when executed as a united force.
This describes my observation of Maritzburg United lately. The games against Supersport and Orlando Pirates, gave us an even stronger conviction that we will get out of the relegation quagmire, keep our heads above water and breathe again. More than anything else, the team is united and are working for each other to achieve a common goal. They know that they are a quality team that does not deserve to be where it is.
A team that is capable of taking on and competing with the best teams in the league, as results against such teams would substantiate that assertion. That in itself is a motivation.
When we lost Mondli, clearly that added much more undeserved stress, ache and despair. It was painful enough to paralyse our spirit as team. It was double trouble. Here was a team that was struggling with results, and then “BOOM” , the tragedy. We know everyone wants to see how we are going to respond after this.
But there is one thing and one thing only that i have realised, that these boys are even more united now. The focus, the commitment, the drive is so much that i am even more confident than before, that we shall bounce back. We shall conquer. Be prepared to see eleven warriors on the field of play whose mission is to defend and protect the brand that provides them with livelihood.
United we stand!
