This was a critical and meaningful accomplishment for me at the time and still is. I always avoided conflict because I was afraid to step on anyone’s toes, and I especially feared change. Removing competitive soccer from my life was an immense change and I wasn’t sure if I was ready for it. I’m proud of myself for accepting that I needed an adjustment in my life and being courageous enough to voice that desire. This was a turning point in my emotional self-awareness and being gentle with my stress load.
Even though I lost I knew I had gotten into his head mentally because I didn’t see him since he ran into the locker room mad because I had embarrassed him and since he knew he was very lucky to get the win. Since I knew I had one or two more chance to wrestle Nerine in the state tournament in two weeks I felt I had brought him down a little bit mentally which I could use to my
Interestingly, the players still had strong respect for him despite the lack of independence he gave them. Such incidents prove that while Ferguson is effective in motivating his players by achieving the first 4 levels of the Hierarchy of Needs Theory, he is ultimately still effective in fulfilling a player’s self actualization. He is able to ensure players are able to continually develop their skills, albeit under his complete control, and yet allow them to maintain a small amount of autonomy. Goal Setting Theory (Motive
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).
“Fhweeoooo! Halftime” , yelled the referee.Coming back from the field I knew that we were about to get a mouthful of yelling from Coach Vernon. Starting the game 0-2 in a championship game was not pleasant. “ WHAT WERE YOU GUYS DOING ON THE FIELD” , he yelled viciously. “ I want to see everybody on the field hustling and playing the game of soccer seriously so that we can bring home the trophy”, he said.
“We have to defeat 5 Awesome this time round,” they chanted as they kicked the ball from player to player, each hoping they would not destroy any of Ashton’s mother’s plants and vegetation. Ashton knew deep in his heart that they ought not to play at the backyard. He remembered how he had accidentally shattered the glass window a few years back. “No, I won’t be that unlucky again,” he muttered to himself as he gave a forceful kick, which sent the ball flying across the field and straight past the goalkeeper. GOAL!
The roar from the crowd shook the whole stadium as Cristiano Ronaldo scored the goal for Real Madrid and the scores were equal 2 all against Atletico Madrid there were 3 minutes left and none of the teams scored and it all comes down to golden goal the teams were given 10 minutes to score a goal so both teams went back out and started playing again and whoever scored the first goal in the 10 minutes won the game for there team bang Marcelo Vieira passed to Sergio Ramos had a chance to pass the ball to Tony Kroos but Ramos ran half the soccer pitch bang he saw an open option crossed it to Ronaldo and all of a sudden you hear the power of Ronaldo’s boot striking the ball and bang you can hear the power of the goalies glove smashing
On the other hand, it was my determination that caught the eye of another coach that lead me to learning a very important life skill: never give up. Because it was an all boys’ team, I realized that it was going to be a tough relationship between the boys and I. However, that was not the challenge I had to overcome,
The last straw occurred when our goalie attempted to block another close goal by our opponents, but got him a sprained ankle in return. Unfortunately, officials determined he had to sit out for the rest of the game. His role in the game was crucial to our win. And with a wave, our goalie left us to perish with 10 minutes left; also, our opponents started with the ball to resume the game. Helpless and battered, exposed to a missile barrage of exhaustion, none of us could take this agony anymore.
This was going to be tough to do because the other team was really good but, we believed in our coaches that they prepared us for the right for our battle that day. When we were warming up you could hear the fans in the stands cheering us on and the music playing. You could see the sun setting in the distance and the leaves falling off the trees and as the sun went down the stadium lights came on and we all new that it was game time. We went out to kick the ball the crowed went to silence and all you could hear was the refers whistle to start the game and as the ball was kicked the fans went crazy. We were playing our hearts out every drive they scored we scored when we were playing you would hear the fans yelling the players yelling and the coaches yelling you would see the player running tackling and teammates giving high fives.
The way I see it is there is always work to be done, just because I might of reached the goals I’m aiming for, doesn’t mean that’s all for me to do, someone else is working for the same goals as me. My main goal is to not let myself down, to not look back and think what more I could of done to make myself better, whether that 's waking up earlier, staying later at practice, taking a couple extra reps just to put myself right over the edge of average. Anyone can be average and live with it, but nobody remembers average, I want people to
There are those who train night and day to win, however, there is more to soccer than individual skill. Winning is a team effort and in order to win, there must be chemistry between teammates, hard work, and determination. The game of soccer is a difficult sport, but with the assistance of teammates, a match can be more easily handled. When one plays soccer, one always needs to choose a good team because a good team can help to easily win a game. If a team has good play-makers then one just needs to defend the opponents.
On the other hand, Hamm had experienced a lot of criticism growing up. She had played on an all-boys soccer team. They would shove her around and hit her to the point where she would be bruised and bleeding vigorously out of her nose. Although this toughened her up, she felt that she needed to prove to the male gender that she was better than them. Indeed, she stood up for herself and from that point forward she never backed off of any competition.
I had to get my mind right that whole weekend because I knew it was going to be a big game for me. I just have to go out there and “Ball out.” People doubted me and said I couldn 't guard number 3 so I watch pros and trained myself because I knew he was a good receiver. When people doubt me I get mad and try my best to prove them wrong. At the end of the game we came through and won. One of the best games I 've ever had in my life.
I magically picked up my sports shoes again, finally decided to continue my run. And when I finally went back to my team with Coach Chavez, I 'm even more determined that it 's indeed an unexpected luck for me to meet such an inspiring coach who led me to the eventual realization about myself, how I was encircled and almost suffocated by my narrow ego which I looked upon as wisdom. With her, I recognized that in the running towards one 's pursuit, only with the commitment and efforts to one 's utmost, victory could be achieved. And now, as I look up to those athletes, not only that I no longer detest their opinions, I too, join their camps, looking forward to run once again to my heart 's content, with the beginning
