Lesson From Soccer

I am not a soccer fan though I have picked something to learn from the player-teamwork exhibited throughout every match. I have read on various awards won by different players such including goalkeepers but have not read about celebrations with their team players and opponents (awards). Music is another area which can be used as a point of reference as well product manufacturing companies. These are a few point of reference that resembles high level of teamwork needed which I believe celebrations should done considering other players.

I have to admit that I have no idea on how they embrace their success. I, however, wonder if the award winners remember their fellow players when they spend the money (when the award is in the form of money). I understand though that the goal celebration as well the overall match win is mutually celebrated. Examples of activities involving teamwork includes goal scoring in soccer match. Sometimes, more than five players would be directly linked to a goal for instance yet only the goal scorer receives much praise forgetting that one could not have achieved it individually.

Secondly, some instances are common when a goalkeeper wins an award. Do they appreciate their opponents for making them strong? I am of the opinion that such a person would have not to forget the efforts exerted by the opponent as the award would not have been achieved without the troubling efforts by opponents (other soccer team).

LESSON 1: We should, at times acknowledge and celebrate our success with concerned individuals in other words, those who contributes meaningfully towards it.

LESSON 2: We become champions as a result of the challenges which come along our way. Therefore, we should be glad to experience challenges; they help us to become sharper as well prepares us for the worst unfortunate incidents. Our abilities are sometimes correlated to our experiences – challenges, in this context are a blessing in disguise. Someone once said, “I consume challenges as my breakfast’.
