When you fail it feels like the whole world was watching you make that mistake, or come short of your goal.This mindset will not do you anyone good though; you can't dwell on your shortcomings, and you have to move forward. Dr. Allan states “winning isn’t everything growing is”; this is true based off of American nonfiction, major works, and poems. Examples that justify Dr. Allans’ statement can be found in American nonfiction writings. For example, “Growth mindset. It’s the mindset that almost every successful athlete ... has” and used it to improve their game (Pharm 4).
You decided to become a coach because you are driven to serve. You want to help people achieve their goals and dreams. You want to live a life of passion and purpose.

The movie Remember the Titans provides an excellent study of leadership principles and challenges in the imperfect environment typical [to] real-life leadership scenarios.

The broader significance of the theme “teamwork and trust are the key to success” is that without trust and teamwork, chaos ensues. When Lev did not trust Connor and Risa, they were almost captured and sent to be unwound. In everyday life, when trust and teamwork are essential in many different environments. For example, on a sports team, teammates must trust each other’s skills and work together to win a game. In a business environment, a team of co-workers must trust that everyone will do their part and work together to create the best idea and proposal.
I realize that with sports come injuries, but I think that this problem lies within coaches’ training programs. Playing sports is a risk that many people are willing to take. First of all, it is incredibly naive for an athlete to think that there is a zero percent chance of injury in the sport of which the may play.
