School is very fun and exciting, but sometimes the school’s extracurricular activities are a bit overwhelming to some people. I don’t think that fights should be caused by quarrels, they should replace arguments with conversations and discuss the problem until they find an answer. After finding out that fighting isn’t the answer, I have decided to not fight back, instead, I will let whoever is mad at me for no reason just yell at me, and kindly ask why they are yelling, I’ve never really encountered a fight multiple times. Sometimes in a competition, the adrenaline is basically is most of the portion in motivation, and that encourages people to enhance their extracurricular strengths. It’s also fun, and sometimes make people less shy, and concealed, when I started drawing, i was a bit more sociable.

They talked about how they would need to put their difference aside, racial and personal if they wanted to become a successful football team so the coaches made a pact that every decision they made would only be to better the team and give them a better chance of winning. The way this reflects on my theme is before this meeting the coaches had many disputes with each other and seemingly just argued to argue sometimes. So by holding this meeting the coaches decided that they needed to clean up their acts in the best interest for the team. This is a situation where teamwork leads to better outcomes than individual

As this will defeat themselves, the failure will not set foot distance, maybe we will face failure momentarily, but that is not important.
Although Odysseus could’ve ended his life right now and then, he waited patiently; That is the true format of self-control, holding one’s eager covets in the most crucial moments. If Odysseus just gave up and fought back, his plan would’ve failed, for he can’t fight hundreds of men all alone; proving that self-control is
I can almost hear them in my head repeating themselves over and over and over, like a recording, “Morgan you are doing great, stop being so negative”. My senior year was definitely the hardest season that I have played, physically and mentally. I took on the role of setting, which was definitely out of my comfort zone. I am usually a defensive specialist, which consist of playing defense and passing. Setting was not the position that I wanted to play, one that I felt confident doing, or enjoyed, but my coach thought that if I was the setter then it would give our team the best chance of winning.
That’s what i’m afraid of.” As he would have to sit on the sidelines and watch his team have success and failures it would get to Boobie a lot just because he couldn’t do something he loved doing, and just the thought of someone taking over his position it hurt him a lot. With him having to think about his career it states in the text that “ But then almost as abruptly, the dream was changed again. It’s not an impossibility that Boobie can come back, but can he mentally overcome the injury. A lot of athletes have these type of injuries, but for a high
20-24). If a team is carefully selected keeping team roles in mind, the individuals will highly benefit from working together and have a higher chance of becoming effective.

Dominating personalities are very likely to clash in a group environment, especially if two or more are present as individuals may become competitive.
He made a really good point about how you should not look at the actual fact that you lost think about what you can do next time and how you can do it. GSP actually had to have a sport psychologist because he was very negative after it and could not get over the fact that he lost because he was the best in the world then he lost just image how hard it was for him. One of his comments he stated was “I believe that losing was one of the best things that ever happened to me”. Some people may think that he is out of his mind for thinking that losing is a good thing but it not only tough him that things can happen but it have him a stronger mindset he probably has a better mindset every time he steps in the ring now then when he
Also, underdogs have always given their fullest to their cause and work very hard to reach their desired goals. So, contrary to popular belief an underdog not because of luck but due to their hard work which pays off. It may be true that underdogs may not always triumph and many turn out to be a classic American Faust but that does not make this a myth because few exceptions do not make it unreal as triumph of an underdog is still a possibility and has happened many times it is a reality. Underdogs sacrifice a lot to get to their goals and because they try to overreach they have a high probability to lose what they are after.
