For many years I was interested in becoming the greatest soccer player in the world but I practiced only like once every two weeks. I started noticing that all of my friends were surpassing me in soccer and becoming a lot better than me. I asked myself, “how am I going to become the greatest soccer player in the world if I rarely practice and all my friends are becoming better than me?”. I told myself that I would become better than all of my friends again and that I would practice everyday for three hours. I asked myself, “am I actually going to meet my goal of becoming better than all of my friends and am I actually going to practice for three hours every day?”. I decided that I would meet my goals because I was going to try to become a really good soccer player. The next day, after …show more content…
I also had to get stronger so when someone would try to body on the field, they would just bounce off. Every day I would try to run around the whole field in less than a minute for an hour. For the other two hours, I would work out so that my cabs and thighs would become stronger and also so that the upper part of my body would become stronger. After a month, I met my goals, I would run around the field in thirty eight seconds and I could outrun everyone on the field and I could get the ball harder and no one could push me from the ball when they would body me. Even though I had met my goals, that didn’t mean I was going to stop practicing. Now I practice four hours a day but only on week days. In conclusion, to reach your goals, you have to set goals and meet them by practicing hard. The only reason I became better than my friends is because I practiced very hard everyday but just because you meet your goals, that doesn’t mean that you quit practicing and quit trying to become the best because if you do then all the hard work was for

Who is Timothy Lucious? I tend to ask myself the same question of “Who am I”? At this present day I come to realize that I am a lot of things in this world today. I live by a certain rules in my life: that God comes first in everything I do, Family is the most important thing to me, and Football is my passion and First love. I am a person who loves football, it has been my love and passion ever since I was a child.
I believe this because you have to be willing to train and make sacrifices in order to improve in the physical area of sports. In “Confessions of a Doper” the author explains on page 90 how he used drugs to achieve “that last 2 percent” that he needed to become an elite athlete. However, the other 98% was achieved by mental strength. In order to conquer that 98%, he spent all his time training and mentally preparing for his race. I know what you are thinking, isn’t training preparing physically?
After my first season of varsity was over I felt even more motivated to get better. I started lifting weights almost every day, even if it meant I had to go to the gym at midnight and still go to school the next morning. The summer of my senior year all I did was either work or work out, I barely spent any time with my friends. But all that work paid off for me because as my senior season approached, I found myself starting on both sides of the ball and on special
To begin with, there are many things in the world that people can learn from, like a sport. For instance, a sport like soccer can teach people many things. Soccer is the best sport to play because people stay active, it helps build teamwork, and it's fun to play. Soccer is the best sport to play because people stay active.
I danced, swam, played volleyball, basketball, and soccer. Every year, the skills of each teammate improved, except my own. My coaches expected perfection from me, which I failed to deliver. At volleyball practices, my teammates served the ball high over the net, landing perfectly in the volleyball court. I touched the ball and it hardly reached the other side of the court.
The second way is to train hard. This means you need to push yourself above and beyond the limits when practicing. You always have to keep pushing yourself to make yourself better, stronger, and faster. The third and final way is to play hard. This is when all the training and working comes together for a final end result.
I thought I was not good enough to be on the team with the people I knew were magnificent players. I learned a valuable lesson: work harder and faster than everyone else. Knowing I was working with great athletes I had to prove myself that I was worthy enough to play on the team. I was beaten and tired out from all the extra training, but it’s what I had to do. I spent nights after practice to work on things I messed up on.
During the week of tryouts we practiced right after school from 3:00 P.M. until 6:00 P.M. I was so tired that I had to come home and go straight to bed. I also missed my cousin's birthday party, and even a few other events because of practice. I missed some school events, too. But making the squad had always been an enormous dream of mine.
I began playing soccer when I was eight, which isn’t a very long time, but throughout the six years I’ve been playing, soccer has changed my life. My weekends, as well as some of my weekdays, have been devoted to soccer. Soccer has taught me how to be humble, kind and how to make sure my emotions don’t overpower my
Soccer isn’t just knowing how to pass the ball, it's the fluidity of how well one team can work together, what key components make a team mesh mell, why the teams would strive for perfection, how hard one will be willing to work to put forth their best effort for the entirety of the team, and what will they be willing to sacrifice. It's what separates the talented players from the great players. Passion and drive are important because without it, you can’t ever hope to achieve something you have no desire for. The passion to continue my work, to continue my pursuit in a career of criminology, to strive to be the best I can do all stem from the work ethic that I developed through the teachings of soccer. With utmost passion, everything else will
As an in-coming freshman who hadn’t played on a school team in middle school, I was at a disadvantage because I was behind in skills and didn’t know many of the tricks. Fortunately, the coach saw my potential and I made the varsity team. My coaches and teammates continually pushed me and helped me become an even better player than I was before. Over the course of my four years on the team, I faced several obstacles that made me feel weak and inadequate, but to overcome them I reminded myself that I loved soccer. The biggest obstacle I faced was getting a concussion my junior year.
Now that i 've grown mentally I learned more about soccer and how it should be played. I now think teamwork is very important. And great teamwork leads to winning and more accomplishments. Just a few months ago after a game my coach was proud of me and how I make very good passes also how I always look for open players to pass to. So I guess nowadays I pass more often and I also look for teammates that are opened on the field.
