One particular struggle for me growing up was soccer and along with it comes one of my most vivid memories that depict just how I learned to trust in my struggle. As the ball sailed way over the net, I lowered my head and slumped my shoulders as I jogged back to my position. Passing the trail of peers, future teammates, and even the coach laughing and
When the Panyee boys loose, they are of course disappointed but they don’t give up. In the video it states “The other team won with the last second shot.” in this clip it shows one of the Panyee boys missing the ball, but they Panyee FC team didn’t blame him instead they supported each other by not blaming each other. Another example is when they come in third and the villager who didn’t believe in them said “Be proud of yourself!” This shows just because they lost doesn’t mean that they didn't play a team, They supported each other and they were proud to make it this far because f the friendship of the team. In the last few minutes it shows the ways of how a team can lose but still win, they lost the game but they didn’t lose their team and give up. They won they support of the village and won the support of each other.
This third value is the one of giving it my all in every facet that comes across my path. So in soccer I always give it my all, I never want to know how it feels to not try because I ask the question to myself “why would people not try, I would rather give it the very best I can.” An example of this in soccer can be for when I have an open shot at goal not trying to take a shot just because I’m afraid of missing the goal and everybody would be laughing at me. But with this value I would rather take the shot myself and risk everything I have into it even if I terribly shoot it over the net. So what this value means to me is that in whatever activity that I’m doing, I’m always going to apply this value of code of chivalry on whatever task is before
What is courage? Courage is the ability to do something that might frighten you. Tangerine, by Edward Bloor, explores the life of a legally blind middle school boy who loves soccer named Paul. The choices to save people in the sinkhole, join the Tangerine soccer team, and stand up to Erik encouraged Paul to gain more confidence. At the beginning of the novel, Paul is Fearful.For example on page 42 Paul says “I’m afraid,” Paul is very terrified.
What mainly caused me to want to teach my brother what I knew about soccer was how he couldn’t quit kick the ball where he wanted it to go. So I tought him how I learned to kick it and he caught on quick. After a while he and I were able to play a real game in our yard. After that taught him how to kick the ball we worked on passing. Since I taught him how to kick and pass the ball my brother was able to help enjoy playing the game and help his team.Although the big effect was he was able
Soccer has kept me off the streets, it keeps me focused, maintaining agility, stamina and a side of aggression. The feeling I get when playing soccer is indescribable, the wind in my face, the crowd cheering me on..most importantly the goal - soccer relates so much to my everyday life it’s taught me teamwork and keeping myself healthy and sharp. The one person I look up to is Lionel Messi #10, the jersey that I so proudly wear every game, his motivational words, his enthusiasm really drove me to get that number and one of my favorite quotes of his would have to be “the day you think there is no improvements to be made is a sad one for anyone.” this quote is important to me because it’s a quote with such a powerful meaning, telling me that even though you may THINK you can’t get better, or do better something pushes you inside to do much greater things and I’m still learning as I go. You could ask any one of my friends or family members how much soccer has became a part of me, I want to have that name “Destiny Scott” affiliated with soccer it’s become second nature to me, soccer is a major part in my life and it has made me into the person I am
I have experienced failure throughout my whole life. Though, the most recent failures I have experienced are when I entered the college. As one of the Best Player of the Year at soccer in high school, I took it for granted thinking that at my level, it would be okay for me not to continue practice soccer for the summer. Instead, I focus my whole summer working at two jobs near my house. As a result, I have learned a lesson the hard way.
I learn many lessons playing sports, especially soccer. I have played soccer since I was about seven years old, and I have loved it ever since. I now play for the Sartell Middle School team and it’s so much fun! Some lessons that I have learned while playing soccer over the past five or so years are, working as a team always works better, and slow-playing it isn 't always the best idea. There are also many other conflicts while playing soccer, but a big one is that if I need to
However, I realized my love and desire for the sport, which aided me to overcome this emotional scar by avowing to focus on becoming an even better player. The summer following my sophomore year I had a running routine, eating regimen, and training that I followed to make myself stronger. During that season my teammates, coaches, and fans took notice of my new motivation, I was always sent out to cover the best players on the other team. I was so focused that I emulated defensive plays of the US Women’s soccer team and played every game like it was the championship game of the season; because of my determination that season I receive the MVP award. Later, after winning the award I recognized that I did not only train harder for the award, but I worked harder because I had matured in my love for soccer and in my personal life to prove to myself that nothing is impossible.
When I started playing soccer 5 years ago I was not so confident, but playing matches boosted my self-confidence . One of the most important thing that I learnt from playing soccer is that I have to trust myself and that hard work pays off. Soccer has changed my life positively because it helped me become a better person. To sum up, Soccer empowers relationships between Nations all over the world and help build more peaceful relationships between them. It also boosts poor country’s economy and participates actively in their development.
Her accomplishments make everyone want to work hard and be the best they can(Stenson, T. 2015). Personally Carli Lloyd has been a hero to me. She has been a great person to look up to and it is good to watch her play. She has affected many soccer players around the world and has been a very good influence(Hayes, G.2015). Additionally she has taken the time out of her day to go around the U.S. talking to kids and giving powerful speeches.
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.
The best way to get back at a dirty team is to score goals and win the game, since fighting is not beneficial. In college, Mia Hamm learned how to possess mental and physical toughness from her coach, Anson Dorrance. Hamm briefly explains that young girls should be pushed to be the best athletes they can be. An inspirational quote I find interesting is when Hamm states, “Before you win, you must have the will to prepare the win.” I find this quote highly moving because it is very realistic, if you want to win you must mentally and physically prepare yourself for the game and have confidence. I can relate to Hamm when she explains that young girls should be pushed to excel in sports, since my own soccer coach gives my team this advice.
“I heard they are really good” said Ali “I don’t think we can win this one” said Teo Then Coach Jenkins came up to us and said, “ Don’t think like that guys, they are human just like you, don’t think just because they are an A team means they are like gods. You can beat them” That speech motivated us to the point where we weren’t scared. We weren’t intimidated either. We couldn’t care less that they were the A team. When we played them, right off the bat,Boom, we won the tip off and Ali made a three pointer.
And for me, that was the Olympic dream. That 's what defined me. That was my bliss.” really touched my feelings because It made me think of I am not alone anymore. I know after my injury my professional soccer career was ended quickly because of the amount of traumatic injury that happened to my body. Even though my whole body was under miserable pain but I was still loving the game and I was watching it and crying at the same time.
