It is already the sixth editorial to be written after taking office as editor-in-chief. Always, before writing editorial, I used to constantly think about what kind of topic to myself. A total of five such worries. And now, I finish thinking about the last one and start writing. As it is the last editorial written as editor-in-chief, I would like to write an essay-like article rather than writing on a subject that is publicized or timely.
A few days ago, the 2022 Qatar World Cup kicked off. The Qatar World Cup, which drew people’s attention in that it was the World Cup in four years, the first World Cup in a Middle Eastern country, and the first Winter World Cup. For me as a Korean, the game that I am waiting for the most with great care is the game of South Korea. South Korea will play its first match against Uruguay. Ahead of the match, the coaches of the national soccer team held a press conference, and among them, what Uruguay’s national soccer team coach, who will play his first match against South Korea, said at the press conference was very impressive.
“We will take advantage of our strengths, not our opponents’ weaknesses,” Uruguayan national football coach Diego Alonso said. This can be seen as a natural answer in a way, but it could be understood as meaning that you will develop and love your strengths more and produce good results, not your opponents’.
What do you think your strengths are? When you hear this question, there will be people who answer it right away without hesitation, and there will be people who have difficulty answering it. However, I think anyone can find the answer to the question if they keep in mind that everyone has strengths and that someone can have weaknesses.
Obviously, sometimes, there are people who have a bad idea that it is easier to target the opponent’s weakness than to develop their strengths. However, I think so. I think it is more meaningful to invest time to further strengthen your strengths than to think a lot about targeting the opponent’s weaknesses. So why do not you love your strengths and try to develop them further? I sincerely look forward to becoming Donggukians and the Dongguk Post, who shine as they are in their places, focusing on their strengths, and I finish the last editorial article.
