Compose a 2250 words assignment on burnout in sport and its prevention. Needs to be plagiarism free! One of my most vivid memories of childhood was my fascination for watching candles being lit up. I derived unexplainable pleasure as I patiently watched a candle staying aglow amidst the gushing wind and burning through until all the paraffin wax had been melted while only the wick remains aflame and slowly dims till the last glow burns out. At times, some of the candles I watched died out sooner than all the wax can melt. In my own little way, I felt frustrated when a candle burned out halfway. These were my crudest and earliest perceptions of burning out. About a decade and a half ago, however, as I heard an old country tune by Neil Young bellowing out the lyrics “It’s better to burn out than to fade away”, I have a firmer grasp of the burnout issue and I told myself that probably, Michael Jordan shared Young’s conviction. Who could ever forget former Chicago Bulls’ supercharger Michael Jordan leaving basketball in 1993 at the height of his career and popularity, because of burnout?
