After some more practices, I started doubting the skill I had because of the drills and plays we did. From that day forward, I realized that you learn from the tiny mistakes and all you can do to get better was to never give up, even if you weren't the best at something. I challenged myself to try my hardest at practice, and after a while I finally understood more plays and drills thanks to some practice and my very supportive teammates. Throughout the season, I learned that you should NEVER give up on what you love to do, and that you should always challenge yourself to get better by practicing or asking for some
I am an extrovert. I always like to maintain all my relationships. Even though I build a strong relationship with my teammates, this style results in a relaxed work environment and reduces the execution of the task on a day to day basis. I realise that even if my teammates does not accomplish their daily tasks, I need to motivate them to bring out better results on the days when they indeed work for the task. I would rate myself to be 8 on individuals and 1.5 - 2 on errands.
My high school experience was very different compared to some of my peers. This wasn’t because we had different classes or were taught by different teachers, but rather because we had different friends and participated in different recreational activities. Most people think that the majority of what you learn in high school is academic, but for me it was so much more. One of the biggest lessons I learnt was that you need to choose your friends very wisely.
Reading Presence by Amy Cuddy makes to believe there are much more dealing with same challenges. The more I read, the more I learn about our mindset, listening, failure, feeling as we don’t deserve to be here, feeling powerful and powerless. There’s are a quote in a book which states “ Power makes us approach, powerless makes us avoid.” When we think about positive things and having a positive outcome than we are more chance of approaching. While I was reading a passage on power and powerless, It made me think of time during my high school soccer tryout for varsity.
There is still so much for me to learn in the area of event management, interviewing Seth was invaluable. I hope to continue to develop a relationship with him and soak in all of his knowledge and experience in the field. Seth told me that at the end of his career he wants to be able to say that he never cheated or sold out, that he was always in it for the student athletes and coaches, not for just a paycheck. I would like to say some of the same things about my
The summer of my junior year I had a severe injury which made me led me but no choice to let go of my other sports and my after school music activities. It was a burden on my shoulders because I loved doing all the activities but in the end, it was all about getting better grades, improving my playing skills and most importantly for me to get healthy again. I worked through the difficult times so I could be there for my team. Teamwork was possibly the most valuable lesson I learned from Lacrosse. Learning to work together with other individuals to achieve a common goal is a skill that I have used and will continue to use, for the rest of my life.
But these are obviously not the only people who have helped me. I deliberately left my parents and other family members out of the essay. Partially, this is because I believe it’s so obvious that they shaped my life. The other part is that I wanted to challenge myself to think of other people who might not normally get recognized as important people in my life.
The author’s major thesis is racial identity so why are someone people are colored blind. Tatum uses her personal experiences and her being a professor. As her children was growing up they had to go through it with her own kids herself having to talked to them about race and how people may not agree on racism and she also use different things to use when she taught as a professor. Having to explain to your kids about racism is very hard because they want to be friends with someone of the different race. From pass experience I have talked to my son about not being prejudice and treat everyone the same.
Borcharch states “It did nurture self-esteem: the process of pushing yourself to a place you didn’t think you could go… the athletic high after an event drives you toward others” (Borcharch). With football or any sport, once you succeed and do something good for your team, you feel on top of the world. you get pushed to make yourself work hard, and meet your goals. Even though, some can feel as though their coach is impossible to work with and they're getting nowhere with the sport. The way you feel when you're helping your team win should push you to your
The transition from middle school to high school was a big change for me. The 3 reasons why the transition was a big change for me was because I don't have classes with my friends, I don't have effective teachers, and my curfew was extended when I entered high school. Having to adapt to this change has been hard for me, but slowly I am getting used to it. Having different classes from my friends is one of the reasons why the transition from middle school to high school was a big change for me. For example, in middle school, I had all my class with my best friends.
It is really interesting that concussions can have such a profound effect on daily life even though the injury occurred a long time ago. I definitely can see how athletes would want to return to play after sustaining a concussion especially guys. The more athletes are educated about concussions, hopefully they will realize that sometimes in sports the best option is to sit out. So many athletes these days make rash decisions about injuries without thinking about the long term consequences.
