The most committed players in our club are the ones who are taking ownership of their personal development. Through a growing passion for the game as well as internal and external competition we are witnessing players reaching new personal targets on and off the field.
At some point, if a person is doing something only for someone else or because they “have to” there will be a time where it is over and that person will be filled with relief compared to accomplishment.
Our greatest desire to improve and learn comes from our environment. When others who are passionate and hard working in a specific subject surround us we take a natural interest in it. I believe this comes from the observations of their knowledge, experience and emotion.
If we have the craving to be better at something we feel connected to then our commitment will be tremendous and the work might be perceived as effortless. The workload towards success will always be a large amount; it is just managed differently by those who find meaning in these struggles.
Of course we want our youth to follow their dreams however I believe their dreams are only a future vision of what has already been experienced by them to some degree.
The daily exposures of our youth will shape their future dreams. The most influential areas for each individual will be the paths that they will follow with the greatest desire to learn.
With this basic approach it makes the process that much more enjoyable for coaches and players.
Yours in soccer,
