The Concussion While growing up my life had always been about basketball. Because of playing this sport I ended up getting an injury that not only injured my body but also my life. My injury was not like any other injury to the body, it was to my head. I didn’t know it then but brain injuries are hard to fully heal from. I learned this when I had thought that I got over my concussion until my grades started to plunge due to the fact that I was missing school because of migraines that had me crying myself to sleep and that were so bad that I wasn’t able to function normally.
For this analysis I’m going to be reflecting on how you can gain authority in a new discourse community. The discourse community that I am going to be looking at today is a high school tennis team. I was interested in reflecting on this topic because when I first started playing tennis on my high school team I didn’t have any authority. Then suddenly after one match I was one of the most authoritative players on the team and continued to be so for the rest of the season and the next year. This genuinely confused me at the time and I have never gotten a clear answer to why I suddenly had so much influence.
“Why me?” I asked myself. I had been working harder than anybody else I knew; I trained all year long, I would stay an hour longer at practice than my other teammates, and I would even have double practices a few times a week (one at school and one with my club coach). I was so discouraged, not just one meet but two meets in a row I was unable to clear any
Eventually I would have to work with them in order to win the game. My coaches would always say that, “we won as a team and lost as a team” which, to me, meant that no matter how well I performed individually, it always takes a team to win or lose. That lesson has become even more real as I have served in the military these past two years. Failure to work as a team can get someone hurt or even
Have fun. All too many times, people forget the reason on waiting to play the game muddled especially when they know that they have a chance you become a pro. Try to stick to the reason why you want to be playing the game in the first place. Winning competitions is second the first thing you need to be worried about is whether you still have passion for the game and you enjoy it and have fun playing
All year these sets of losses had bugged me and made me work all the time to be better. After this experience I know that confidence is a positive, but overconfidence is always a negative. This experience has driven me to be a better basketball player. Most likely it 's part of my personality, but I 'm always upset whenever I lose a game or don 't do perfect. Now I am always working to be more than just a 3 and D player.

We started to play, but the people from Franklin that were in the crowd were so annoying they were really trying to mess us up. I wasn 't going to listen to them because I was so proud of us to make it to the championships. When I got up there to the server 's position I started getting nervous that I would hit it to high. I could hear my coach in the background saying “just breathe Bella you 've got this we 've worked on it your good.” My hand got a little lower as I swung and hit the ball up in the air it went over without touching the ceiling I was so proud of myself then as we played longer and longer the games were closer and closer in score, we won two and they won two, so this last one whoever won wins, we were really close and had to go over 25 points because we kept getting a point when they were at 25 but you have to be 2 points
Even my coach began to worry that I would not be playing next season. Sucking up the pain and my emotions, I looked at my goal of being released and went after it. Getting my strength back in my leg, and realizing I was capable of doing the same things I had once done before the surgery, opened my eyes and made me back to the player I once
Staying fully devoted to this game isn’t an easy task. I have to give up several weekends with my friends and family so that I may travel to tournaments, sometimes several hours away. Other times I
By chance, I found one club that was having their tryouts much later than all the others, and when I showed up, I was the only one there. They asked me to play for them, and I agreed, but it was more like private lessons. Every Monday, I would go and practice for a couple of hours with a student coach. Occasionally, I would play scrimmages for other teams, but most importantly, I enjoyed those weekly practices. In the final weeks, leading up to the school tryouts, I attended a variety of intramurals and camps.
I learned about not giving up on what you want just because you didn 't get it the first time, or because it is going to be a harder than you thought. If I fell off of the balance beam at practice, or at a competition, I would get back up and keep trying. I ended up A big part of gymnastics was trying new things. There was always some new flip or move that we hadn’t tried, and our coaches liked to make the girls on the team guinea pigs in leotards.
When I first started Carolina Courts I had no idea what I was getting into. First the season started horrible then our final game we reach the championships. I had no idea how unpredictable this season was going to be. If I could do it again I wouldn't have changed a thing. I was so excited as I saw the door of Carolina Courts this was going to be a great season.
My mind was going wild; I was both nervous and exhilarated at the thought of starting a new school. A new environment and new people meant having to look to fit in all over again. I did not know this yet, but this first day of fourth grade in a new school would be one of my largest accomplishments throughout my life. Growing up in a Spanish- speaking household gave me a new perspective. Much of my upbringing was different than that of my friends, and I had to adjust to a different culture.
Do you show grit in your life? Do you work through any obstacle that stands in your way? Many say that this is the most important aspect in a successful person’s personality, and not intelligence, talent, or wealth. Many historical figures and people today show grit, and they are the ones with the most success in life. Grit is also shown in pieces of writing, movies, plays, or any story being told.
