whether it is at work, with your family, or a softball or basketball team…in all of your teams if you want things to get better then work on your own weaknesses or improve your strengths…..instead of blaming failure on another teammate really look within and see what you can fix about yourself to make the teamwork better…pray and discern about it. You might need to purify your heart and thoughts, learn to forgive others of their mistakes, get faster or stronger to play with the grandkids, eat smart so you can live a long life, wear your hearing aid or glasses so you can communicate. Iron your clothes before you go out. Share your talents, time and treasure with the people, places, and organizations that are important to you and where your experience will be the most relavent and appropriate. For where you share time, talent, and treasure is where your heart is.
We might blame each other on the team for failure. Own it, take responsiblity for the failure of the team. Then before the next game: talk to your team and come up with a plan to make your skills better so that the team can win the next time they play.
For me I have dropped about 20 pounds since last year’s team. I have been doing stabilization, endurance moves, as well power exercises and plyometrics to make me leaner, more explosive, and have taken way more jumpshots when I practice, and attacking the rim ….I need to be a threat to score so if teams double team then I can drive and kick it to a shooter if they double me, and if they leave me alone or one on one, then I need to be able to finish my layup or get a foul. I got a block from behind a few weekends ago, it felt good. Cause the guy was pounding us in the post, so when they posted him, I immediately came in from his blindside and swatted it from over his right shoulder…It felt amazing.
