Soccer is not Just a Sport
The big loss on that day teaches us not only that failure shouldn’t be something we should be ashamed of, but also every time we fail we actually get better and better in our soccer skill. When we fail, we will always know how good the other team is so that we will be able to work on our weaknesses more and more and expect our improved results in skills. If you lose a great number of goals and you don’t try hard and just give up, you won’t be able to improve or learn anything. Say that you keep winning soccer games and you are considered the best; what is the challenge and learning lesson in that at the end? Every professional soccer player in the world takes on loss as a small flaw and they move on. They say that they improve from losses and the next time they face again, the losing team will be even stronger. In any sport, you have to take on losses and not let them affect you because they’re no big deal. It doesn’t matter that you lose. What does matter is that you take advantage of this experience and put it behind you so you can improve and learn from it. We should always believe that failure cannot stand in our way of success to a professional. In soccer, you’re supposed to improve from your mistakes, learn the true meaning of sportsmanship, and try your best to accomplish your goal. Something important in this sport is to try your best to get your goal. Sometimes you will fail to achieve your ever longing goal, but does that stop you from trying a billion more times as many times as you fail? In soccer, you should never give up what was always meant for you to accomplish. You have to accept the fact that perfection is not easy and you will lose a lot along the way, but you should never take failure as something that stands in your path. Failure is a small flaw that can be fixed with a simple action.
When people go down through a dark loss whether it is through the worst place you could imagine, you do not go down alone; you go down along with your teammates. Whether it is losing, failing, or even seeming hopeless, you learn in soccer that the only way to achieve success is to work as a team. Remember, two is more powerful than one. In soccer, a valuable lesson you learn is to trust your teammates and make it to victory together as a team. Having others around you is for a reason. As a community, a state, a country, a team, and even the whole age of humans, we do not achieve success alone. We work together to succeed together. Independence should be encouraged, but we should always remember that working together as a team is always something stronger and more beneficial.
In conclusion, sports are meant for you to fail, but what matters is how you make use of the experience of failing. You have to choose whether you are working harder together to improve yourself and to succeed or let the opportunity slip away. We should inhale the feeling of loss and breathe out unimaginable success. Therefore, wherever you are and whatever the situation might be, never pass up the opportunity to improve.
