For example when I compare myself to my brother it lowered myself esteem and confidence in playing the sport of soccer. Also I was unmotivated and didn’t strive to do my absolute best, I figured he is better than me and always will be. Never think that way instead I should’ve admired him and strived to be as good as he is and learn from him. To compare yourself would be to limit yourself to standards set by you or maybe even someone else or a group of people (ex. Social media or the media in general).
If I only know then what I know now, I would not have participated in that match. I have been playing soccer ever since I can remember. It was a great passion of mine, and a method for relieving all of the stress. I can still remember the day that it happened vividly. It was our last varsity game, against one of our biggest rivals, who were also one of the best in Michigan.
This means that the games for children need to focus more on their pleasure and enjoyment rather than on the competition. Competition only makes children bound to be winners. It also discourages sportsman spirit. Instead of being a source of healthy growth, these competitive sports have started becoming the source of depression for children when they don’t fulfil the expectations of their parents. These sports should enhance the sportsman spirit in children and must be beneficial for their mental and physical health.
Imagine a world where everyone would get a trophy for participating in sports. The world would be a bad place to be in because every kid would expect trophy even if they didn 't work hard. More and more sport districts are starting to do this method, and this method is not right. This is not a good thing to do for kids because kids will have unhealthy competition, Participation trophies will not show that you worked hard to get it and Kids get stuck on always getting a trophy when one day the won 't and they will be heartbroken.
Goals are a healthy and helpful thing to have, but when people become too focused on the outcome it can change the entirety of who they are. In “The Censors” by Luisa Valenzuela, Juan sends a letter that changes his life. He tries his hardest to get it back and gets a brand new job just to do so, but the letter consumes his life and him as a person. Valenzuela uses revealing actions and tone to highlight how obsessing over goals can change every aspect of life. Valenzuela's revealing action of when Juan puts himself into his work highlights how it’s easier to lose yourself than it seems.
Throughout the years, referees have been a vital part of nearly all sports of various levels. The referee keeps players playing fair through bringing a non-biased opinion onto the field, and without a referee, players may resort to getting their way in a sport, such as soccer, through foul play. Additionally, the referees are judged harshly by spectators, and which can cause a large problem at the youth levels of sports. Unfortunately, with this responsibility of keeping the game fair, the referees are often looked down upon by spectators, which can make the job very stressful for young and old referees alike. In the United States, how has the verbal abuse from parents, coaches, and players affected the number of soccer referees in youth sport programs within the past decade, and what actions can be taken to prevent this verbal abuse.
We learn more about the truth of life as we change into a better person. We tell the truth even if that hurts the person we love. But we sometimes do not tell the whole truth because we do not want to hurt the person even more than she or he is already hurt. In my life, I have lived, I have loved, I have missed, I have lost, I have hurt, I have trusted, I have made a lot of mistakes, but most of all, I have
I learned much about leadership and the importance of positive communication while playing competitive soccer. My “aha” moment came during a game when my team was down 3-0, playing in scorching heat against a premier soccer team, and without any substitutes. I remember seeing the despair in the eyes of my teammates and the frustration on the faces of my coaches at halftime. Up to that point, I tended to let others lead. I remember thinking to myself that if we wanted to win, we needed to play as a cohesive team and focus on how we approach the game instead of blaming each other for bad plays.
The sport has become part of daily life of a person if the passion is stronger than just a simple dream it can be transformed from a hobby to a profession. The incredible part of sports is that no matter which type of sport it is or the varieties of techniques, at the end there is a midpoint which represents union and the connection with your mind and body; it inspires and trills society. Unfortunately, the obsession to have victory can forget completely honesty and integrity; when athletes want to have more physical capacity than the natural one they have they go to the drug to have an over human capacity. Likewise, doping consist in using illegal or prohibited substances in sports to have a better athletic performance.
In writing this paper it helped me think more on a critical level on just how impactful this really is. I hope for one day we learn from our mistakes and instead of putting people down because we have different views we pick them up and work together for a better
One year ago I confidently tried out for a travel soccer team, only to be disappointed, now I 've learned that hard work always beats talent. My dad always told me that hard work always beats talent when talent fails to work hard, but I never really thought of it that way. Once the tryouts had started I depended on the talent that I had. By the time it was the second day I was feeling really confident that I had this in the bag.
Every second I 've spent, makes me grow to become me. Art has helped me take risks and has created a new mindset on how to live my life. I am more outspoken and I take criticism well because you cannot grow as an artist or even as a person without taking into consideration the changes you have
If there is one thing in life that soccer had taught me was nothing in life is fair. Nothing in the “real world” will be handed to you (unless you are GM and like to cheat your way around things). If you want win against a team, you to have go out there and work for that win. The coaches cannot go out there and
If one person in the team lack the skill set needed to complete the task it will take time to retrain the individual, which in hand will slow the team down. The team must also be able to work at a high level of cohesiveness. Cohesiveness lowers personal animosity with in the team and increase team productivity (Dye, 2010). Now the most important value that is crucial to a team success is commitment. When a team is committed to the cause it will put aside all personal agendas, and devote all of their efforts to the accomplishment of the task at hand (Dye, 2010).
