In Guatemala, we have a lot of people who have great physical and mental abilities that would fit perfectly in the game and could succeed at it. We have few academies that develop this sport, and they don’t have the facilities to practice it at a high level. We also have a lot of fans of this sport, and I think that in a future we will have reporters and players from Guatemala. Football is a sport to join cultures so I think this would be possible. All these reasons make football on of my favorites sports, and I hope it will make it one of yours.
Which makes me all the more determined to make sure that I keep that kind of love and support around myself at all times. What those athletes demonstrated to me is the kind of power there is in surrounding yourself in an atmosphere where love thrives above all else. Hence, I am grateful for my gift of discernment, which has helped me weed out some of the toxic people in my life. Maintaining healthy boundaries is an ongoing process for me, but there is no love or nobility in allowing others to mistreat me, no matter how "good" their intentions or the explanations they provide me. When what a person says does not match what they do, it is always the action that leaves the deepest impression because actions always speak louder than
Players must also respect each other. Without that, any concept of a team would be nearly impossible. This is a very vital view overall in my life. In conclusion, three important laws of life that I value are persistence, teamwork, and respect. I first learned this when I started playing football, but later realized that they also apply to many other situations in
Based on Jane McGonigal Ted Talk, “The game that can give you 10 extra years of life” I believe my biggest strength is Physical Resilience. I find that physical resilience is the way of getting through your troubled times through physical/athletic opportunities. My fear is let go when I run, running has been my safe places in which I can get out of the real world and spend time daydreaming about all the good. Sports has been my way of physical resilience and my method of understanding the world. My mind is filled with stress and fear, but that is all let go when I get to the first mile of my race.
Lombardi said, “It’s not whether you get knocked down; it’s whether you get up.” I believe that some of the greatest things that I have learned through sports have been imparted upon me after I experienced some sort of adversity, great or small. I have been able to accept the fact that life is not always fair and that the only way to achieve success is through hard work and perseverance. Another lesson that I have learned through athletics is that nothing worth achieving can be achieved without working hard. High school sports not only require hard work in season, but also many months of hard work and sweat in the off-season. Great success can only be achieved when months of hard work finally pay off.
I strongly believe that children should play American football for the following reasons: football builds character, requires comradery, and involves commitment. There are those who would warn against kids playing the sport because of its barbaric style and safety concerns, but the sport’s positives outweigh the negatives. Football teaches many life lessons that should be installed at an early age. The sport is used to teach boys how to become men. Kids should play football because it builds character.
Not exactly trying to hurt each other. I would have to say that I probably developed and honed abilities the most in that environment. I still do not enjoy aggressive sports, but I am a great kicker, thrower, catcher, and what I call a sprint runner (not so much after I got boobs and my love of running went away), such as in baseball getting from one base to another, or in football and soccer getting the ball quickly to who, or where it needed to be. Pretty much because I want to get rid of it ASAP before I got hurt! I also have wicked fast reflexes (survival instinct!).
Football is a great sport to teach young boys to work for what they want which is winning the game and eventually taking the championship. When my child plays football, he will gain character and that he can use that to benefit him on life skills. Although some would argue that their child cannot play football because it's too dangerous and is a great cause of concussions or any type of injuries, parents also need to understand the viewpoint of their children. Understanding they want to do and extracurricular activities they want to be a part of. I still strongly agree that I would let my child play football because it's a stress reliever, gain the life experience, and it builds character.
My brain just works differently than most other people’s. When people talk about vaccines and autism it makes me feel like I’m not a person but a ‘bad result.’ It reminds me that no one wants a kid like me and parents will risk their kid’s lives and everyone else’s just to make sure their kid doesn’t turn out like me.” Which makes me think not only the scientific part of this debate matters but also the human side to this too. There are three sides to this debate. The parents who don’t want to have an autistic child, the parents who do have an autistic child and the autistic children themselves. To some parents autism is the worst thing that can happen to their children.
It can help you to appreciate the easy and happy moments in life. Being an outsider teaches people to have a positive outlook on life, to show their true personality, and how to treat others who might feel like outsiders. We are all outsiders in our own way because we are all different, but our differences should not make us unhappy. Tim Burton said “If you’ve ever had the feeling of loneliness, of being an outsider, it never quite leaves you. You can be happy or successful or whatever, but that thing still stays within you.” I think that he meant being an outsider will pass, but you will never forget what you learned from experiencing it.
