I will be the first to admit that I was questioning my commitment as a coach at about 6.45am last Saturday morning as my alarm went off so I could make an 8.00am game. My bed was much so comfortable and more importantly warmer than any pitch sideline. But I had made a commitment to my team to be there as coach and hence I made conscious decision get out of bed and be at the game.
Over the years I sought to find the difference between success and not achieving your goals. One of the key factors of achieving your goals is stickability; the ability to stick with your commitments no matter how hard or tough the situations gets.
My guess is that this week some of team member would have had thoughts of quitting
For some it may have been losing badly to a superior team…
For some it may have been your team playing badly…
For some it may have been frustration at others…
For some it may have been frustration at a Ref’s call…
For some it may have been frustration at yourself…
For some it may have been the game was too early…
For some it may have been too hard to get out of bed…
No matter what your reasons and their justifications, the important thing to consider is your choices and your attitudes. No matter how hard the situation, if you choose to stick with your commitment you have the best prospect of success.
With that choice there comes a change of attitude. Often we feel like giving up. Feelings are reactions to our emotions. These are important but should never control who we are. An attitude however is a choice and is the key factor with all you do. If you choose to have an attitude that is positive and giving your best no matter what, any obstacles in path will somehow seem smaller and less overwhelm.
You will find that such an attitude will be infectious. Slowly but steadily other will be influenced to give their best and that when a poor team becomes a good team and a good team becomes an awesome team.
The upside is that with your choice comes the freedom because you have the power of that choice. You made the decision and you have the freedom to choose.
By being stickable, you then will find how far you can go and where your true limits. And trust me where you think you can go and where you truly can go are two very different places.
To finish I have put in a link to a video clips from the movie called “Facing the Giants”. This clip shows the “Death Crawl” showing how far each one of us can go. Next time you feel like giving up, make the choice…
Just stick with and see where you will go…
