One way I show selflessness, is when I’m not having the best game and the coach pulls me, I don’t throw a fit and get mad at the coach. Some player get in their head once they get pulled and get angry with their coach and that’s not going to make the situation better. Pulling a player that is performing isn’t a punishment, it’s just a way for the player to settle down and get their head right again. I understand that it’s the best decision for my team if I get pulled because I’m not doing good. Being selfless is pushing yourself to be better for your team and coaches, its being the best teammate and supporter.
She acts childish when dealing with problems. Although Calvin Jarrett works the hardest to keep the Jarrett family together, his communication skills lack many important techniques. He often plays the helpless story when dealing with Beth and Conrad’s abnormal relationship. He feels like too much has happened between the two and that there is nothing he can do about it, thus practicing withdrawing. Occasionally, he acts violently by attacking others.
I’m left wondering what would the outcome be like had Arthur been hands down the better athlete of the two? The coach made it seem like the choice was made because Arthur wasn’t excelling on the court like they expected him to. I don’t understand how its legal to lie to these kids like this. There should be some kid of legal binding contract to make sure these kids are taken care of no matter what. You drag them out of their comfort zone, change up everything they’ve know only to kick them back out on the streets when things don’t go in a positive direction.
If I was instructing members to help them improve on body technique, characteristic facial features, or their confidence for performing, then I should apply the same to my training. Now, when I practice or compete my hands are strong and sturdy. If moves are difficult, I take a breath and tell myself to stay positive and patient because I know that I can do
(AGG) People have rebelled against their society many times because they do not agree with it, such as Martain Luther King Jr; he rebelled against his society in a non-harmful way because he did not agree with how it worked. (BS-1) Before Montag was not guided he agreed and worked alongside his society because of he was the type of person to want to be the ideal person of the society. (BS-2) The things Montag sees and goes through causes him to think about what the society is doing and whether what they are doing is wrong or not. (BS-3) Montag has denies his society and he fights back because of what drives him to do all of this. (TS) Montag’s experiences will change his view of his society, from agreeing to questioning, then ultimately causing
Today, people all over the world feel like they have to act like someone they are not in order for them to be accepted by their peers. We all are guilty of repressing certain parts of ourselves because we are too afraid of how society will react and judge us for being our own person. As Stevenson has shown throughout his story, Dr Jekyll had been living this way his entire life. He repeatedly experiences all of these wants and desires but decides not act on them because of his worries of how he will be perceived by the community. Therefore, Stevenson conveys the message that it's easy for people to get into the bad habit of not being their selves to the extent where they could turn into an entirely different person that they will never be able to
With my teammates making racial comments of me and not being good enough in Water Polo. I faced two choices: to either give up or work hard and prove them wrong. Coming out of the classroom tired, I had a reason to show everyone of my teammates that we’re a team, we need to work as a team, and race shouldn’t divide us. Swimming breathless, and sometimes being blacked out, I pushed myself to the limit; worked on my technique and I was being able to improve myself, and although words of others tried to attack and slow me down, I let distraction to not distract me and work harder than ever in every morning, after school and Saturday practices.
Through the constant harassment from the player I realized that I had to take some course of action to prevent myself from falling victim to this for the rest of the year. I could not earn respect by playing soccer because I was not a starter for the team nor did the seniors support me, hence the situation I was in. I realize they may have been a better way to go about this but I felt hopeless and frustrated with all the continuous bullying that I could no longer stand it. Due to this whole semester of bullying from this player I had a strong sense of dissent towards the players on team not allowing me to have a team bond that I experienced before this year. I hindered greatly from having confidence of myself which ultimately led me to have a indifferent beginning to my high school career.
If you didn 't see your name on the list that meant that you got cut and didn 't make the team. Sadly me and my friends ended up not making the team which made us seem like failures, and made us think that we aren’t not good enough to play the sport. And us not seeing our name on the list pushed us away from the sport and not wanting to
As a personal example, I have a student who is not really physically gifted but still enjoys trainings and drills during varsity practice. But when their age group entered a higher level of competition, he approached me to tell me that he was quitting because he felt that he could not perform at the level that were going into. He told me that he was having a hard time catching up with the physical demands of this new level of play and that he was quitting because its too hard. As a coach, I asked him: when your studies get harder, do you stop going to school? Quitting is not the solution when faced with a problem; especially one that you have direct influence
If your best friend is in a fight with someone you are going to take your best friends side and help them out. In the article Saul says that the boys being tested weren’t like a, “gang” and that they were normal well behaved kids but to an extent they actually were similar to a gang. They were like a gang because they all only had each other to depend on as they are going for the prize and they are always going to be prejudice towards anyone who is trying to get in the way of that. There was an argument that claims that the kids didn’t believe the study results were true because they didn’t understand the experiment, which to me doesn’t make sense, because if the
I think that almost everybody had a time that a friend was disloyal to him or her once or that you don’t want to be nice anymore because you always have a negative response when you try to reach out. One thing that Teixeira said in the first line was struck out to me. He was talking about how he doesn’t have patience for certain things, not because he is full of himself but because he doesn’t want to be bothered with people that doesn’t want his best interest in heart. From my own personal experience I would agree with him on this. I look back to freshman year in high school.
The greasers struggle more than the Socs because they were poor, their parents did not care about them, and they were always in fights. The greasers main problem is that they are poor which gives them a horrible life. “We’re poorer than the Socs and the middle class.”(Hinton 3) The greasers are poorer than the rest of the classes which makes them work for a living. The greasers work for what they need,
It was because our captains were not talking to our team and bringing more energy to our practice. As we were on the line preparing for what would be a series of timed sprints, Coach said, “We will not be a good team if I’m the captain. I do not hear
