The other side of the coin.
There have been so many officials in MCF, past and present, who has told me that they have been attacked from the moment they enter the Federation. They will be accused of everything under the sun. I have told a number of them that this is normal. This is Malaysian chess. Now how do we look at this?
On the one hand it is bad, since the officials will leave, the good players become victims of the politics in favour of kangkung players etc etc. And there will be no progress.
BUT lets try to look at it another way today.
That is also the way to separate the wheat from the chaff, the men from the boys. As the song says, if you can make it there (in MCF), then you can make it anywhere.....
If you don't quit, if you don't get bought, if you can stay with the game plan to improve and not get deflected, dejected etc etc.
So MCF is actually primed for us to find a true leader. For only under that type of leadership will our players find the example of what it takes for Malaysian chess to shine on the world stage.
Note: This also applies to the players. If you can withstand the mental assaults, trust in your own training and game plan. Then you too will become a strong player/leader.
