Focus on the Game, not on Winning!
Yesterday my little nephew whopped my ass real bad in basketball. He bragged the entire time…I enjoy a confident man *smile*.
So today I was determined to do MY best. I didn’t let the trash talking get to me and game after game I won. I noticed that my nephew was getting frustrated, he wanted to win so bad that his shots were going wild. So I said to him, “If your goal is to beat me you’ll never win, focus on doing your absolute best and playing a good game.” He says OK, inhales & exhales, and IMMEDIATELY he starts making all of his shots, nothing but net and he won that last game. After playing 7 games, ole’ “Auntie” was tired and as I was walking away he said, “Thank you for telling me that Auntie, I wish you would of said it sooner.” And I responded, “Of course I’m going to tell you because I want you to be your best.” I didn’t think he needed the advice until I saw it in his eyes. Good game Jaylon Bro. <3
