Leadership: Play with Passion

Game 12

I couldn't make it to my son's volleyball game last night. Did I ever mention that I hate to miss watching my kids play anything? My son's team won the volleyball match 2 games to 1. My wife saw the game and told me that my son had an awesome spike and that he handled the loss in the third game better than he did in his last match.

My son does not like to lose, but losses do not really bother my son. What bothers my son is when his teammates do not try hard or make the same mistakes over and over again. I have been trying to tell him that he needs to lower his expectations when he is playing on a B team. Play for the camaraderie and the fun. Continue to play with passion and others will see that and follow your lead. The team needs a leader. Be the leader.
