Unbelievable, the horn in the mid face (the snout) of a great Rhinoceros (Rhino) has been pulled-off. Germany did not only beat Brazil, but trashed and humiliated them with their outstanding 7 – 1 victory in the Semi-final.

After the match, a Brazilian fan in tears
Below are the lists of 5 lesson to learn from the catastrophe of Brazil against Germany.
Lesson 1. Over-Confident kills
it is obvious the Brazil against Germany on Tuesday July 2014 were more in-balance than the Spain against Netherlands during the group stages match, so whats their problem?, it’s certainly Overconfidence.
As the 2010 world champions, Spain had this believe that they are going to conquer any country that comes around them without studying the team. Brazil did same thing, as the host and most winners of the world cup tittle.They weren’t serious at all, they just train and came to the match and it’s totally obvious that they lacks the knowledge of the Germans side.
Lesson 2. Over-dependence destroys
Do you think Brazil’s defeat was because they lack their two greatest duo, Neymar & T.Silva?, to me it’s certainly yes.
Another reason why Brazil faced the most devastating catastrophe in their history of football against Germany at this 2014 world cup was that they relied fully on their two duo; T.silva(captain) & Neymar (Brazil’s Golden Boy). This was showed-off in the match; – when most of their passing in the defense were poor and leading to a dangerous attack by the Germans.
– No one to threaten the defense of the Germans.
– No one to play the role as a good captain.
Lesson 3. Poor Coaching leads to a pit-fall
I had been wondering since the world cup started how Brazil managed to proceed through their group and i got to know that it was all about the potentials in the players not the coach.
In football, any time a team losses a match the blame is mostly going to the coach. But i oppose that a lot, though in this case it’s quite obvious that Scolari lacks utilizing experiences.
As a coach, when assigning the 23-man squad for the world cup, you should always remember selecting substitute that will fit replacing anyone in case any thing happens.
Argentina got this right by replacing Perez for Di Maria and they prevailed against the dutch side, Netherlands on Wednesday July 2014.
Lesson 4: Success Is Not Genetic
Most people believe that their parents’ successes can be inherited by them, it’s not possible. We are all distinct in life. Let’s take this Brazilian team for example, they believe in the achievements of their “forefathers” and they believe the same success can be genetically transferred on them, so they see no reasons to work harder and fortified themselves in all ramifications.
Well, they learned it the hard way that success is not inherited. Brothers and sisters, your father may be a Billionaire, your mother may be a millionaire, you might even be their only child, well, if you don’t carve a niche for yourself by creating your own wealth, I mean if you rely on the sweat of your parent alone for survival, then prepare for the worst, as anything can happen if your fathers/mother wealth are not properly utilize.
Lesson 5. Don’t Give up
well, i also give kudos to the Brazil team a bit on this point; Brazil let in 5 goals within the space of 30 minutes in the first half, it seemed impossible to carry on. How do you come back from a loss like that? I can only imagine that the Brazilian players would have rather quit than continue suffering When humiliated in the second half of the game. Thanks to FIFA, every match played must be concluded. However, the only thing worse than playing for another 45 minutes would be to take the easy way out and quit, which they didn’t. They persevered and came back stronger in the second half, playing better than before.
Their determination even allowed them to score a goal in the last few minutes of the game. Even though winning was seemingly impossible after half-time, they still played on.
As an entrepreneur, note that business is not a speed race, but a gradual movement into taking your business to the next stage . Even if It will take time, energy, cost, sweat, and tears to make it, just be persistent!
Be patient and work hard. If you are not prepared to go the whole nine yards, then be prepared for the consequences.
