I completely agree with this article because I have lost in many things before like my basketball games. My team and I lost a game that would have taken us to the tournament game. I was fine with not wining because of one thing, that being the fact that we gave it 110 percent the entire game. The team we were placed against was just an overall better team. I refer back to what my coach that year taught the team. The only time that you should be upset that you lost a game is when you did not try your personal best to win it. If you are not having a good day do not punish the whole team by not putting you’re all into every minute, every second of the game. It is not just giving it your all in the game but during the timeouts to listen to better yourself, when you are subbed out of the game watch the game. Do not to talk to the other members of the team but to watch the game, watch the other team members and see how you can improve defense. Playing sports is not always about wining but about you knowing that you gave it your all.
My plan of action is to tell my cousins, the little kids I babysit, my feature nieces and nephews, and my own feature children that it is alright to lose. You do not always win. I will also not always let these people win at everything we do together. I will tell them all about Shaun White’s story. Shaun White did not give up. Shaun did not always win. Everybody has a bad day and does not live up to their full potential and there is nothing wrong with that as long as you give everything you do your best all the time.
Always: at all times: used to indicate that something happens or is done continuously, repetitively, or on every occasion
Win: achieve victory: to beat any or every opponent or enemy in a competition or fight
