A quality you should look for in people to join you on your journey is loyalty. Although this alone does not ensure success in another person, a lack of loyalty is sure to ruin your relationship with him or her. Think of it this way: When you're looking for potential leaders, if someone you're considering lacks loyalty, he is disqualified.
Thoughts to Ponder
Our destinies in life will never be determined by our complaining spirits or high expectations. Life is full of surprises and the adjustment of our attitudes is a lifelong project.
The pessimist complains about the wind.
The optimist expects it to change.
The leader adjusts the sails.
We choose what attitude we have right now, and it is a continuing choice. The greatest day in your life and mine is when we take total responsibility for our attitudes. That's the day we truly grow up.
Some Thoughts From Coach Moriarty
Disappointment and defeat are the outcome for half of the participants in every single contest. The exception, of course, is when we have truly given our all, not just in the contest, but in our preparation and practice and can accept that our competition was simply better this particular day.
I have "preached" for years that the true measure of an "athlete" is how he responds to failure. A missed play in a contest gives us an immediate opportunity to elevate our level of focus and energy to "get the ball back". Defeat, an opportunity to reflect on our personal commitment to our team's success. Are we making the sacrifices to nutrition, proper rest, time management, and in the energy and focus we commit to practice? Are we doing everything we need to do to be academically eligible so our teammates can depend on us?
We will always be confronted with disappointment in life. Sports give us an opportunity to practice how we will respond. If something is important to you, give it your all. When the outcome you really want (playing time, first string, varsity, victory) proves to be elusive..., Give it even more! Only YOU determine your potential!
