Life Lessons That Everyone Should Learn From MS Dhoni's World Cup Exit Speech

India's shattered dreams regarding the World Cup 2015 notwithstanding, India have a lot to feel proud of in the way their team fared in the sport's biggest event. Awesomely gracious in defeat is Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who spoke his heart out in the post-match press conference at the Sydney Cricket Ground after his side lost the semis to Australia by 95 runs on Thursday. Here is a list of some life lessons that you can learn from his quotes:

Always learn from your mistakes.

"You will see in the coming years that we will continue with the same line-up. They will have learnt a lot on the tour and those learnings will come in handy when we travel outside the sub-continent to play Test matches." - Dhoni on how the current crop of batsmen will shape up in overseas conditions.

Nothing is permanent in life.

"Well, it's something that doesn't really belong to anyone. We definitely took it from someone, so somebody took it from us. It's as simple as that." - Dhoni talks about the World Cup title.

Always have faith in your own ability.

"Our batting can chase 300 plus scores, we have done it a number of times. Today it didn't go according to plan."

Never spoon feed anyone.

"I think you all should do research and whatever you write, the opposite will be the truth. I am not that old, so do your research first." - Dhoni responded to a query asking him when he will quit cricket and he poked fun at the media.

Stand by those who support you.

"Duncan's technical knowledge of the game is excellent. I really enjoy his company. He took over at a time when senior players had left and he had to groom the juniors. It was a tough job." - When asked about head coach Duncan Fletcher's future, whose contract ends with the World Cup.

Always respect your rivals.

"They (Australia) played very good cricket, over 300 is always a difficult score. They bowled really well."

Success is not guaranteed each time.

"Kohli played a shot and it didn't pay off. It happens, and it happens to a lot of batsmen." - On what he thinks about Virat Kohli's indifferent form of late.
