She Rules #58, How Can You Expect To Make The Team If You Don’t Even Try Out
This one comes from a conversation I had with my son. They offer such great life lessons, although it’s sometimes uncomfortable when they hold that mirror up to our faces.
My older boys are bigger dudes who are definitely built for sports, and they have often tried out for teams though they don’t always make the cut. In 8th grade, everyone makes the team, but my youngest is going into 9th grade, and not everyone who tries out makes the team at that level.
This has discouraged him and he was so scared of not making the team that he almost didn’t even try out. Oftentimes the lack of certainty can paralyze a person and cause them not to act in the face of fear.
I 100% know my boys will be better men because of the times that they have tried and failed. We’ve used these times as opportunities to learn to deal with failure. Opportunities to learn to cope and to improve performance.
